JAN ROMARY ON TV-1957
 
National Champion Janice Lee York Romary was a participant in the well-known TV program, “TO TELL THE TRUTH” on May 7.  Three of the four panelists were unable to spot Jan as the national champion and former escrow officer of a bank, against the artful fibs of her co-participants.  Jan’s share of the prizes was donated to the AFLA’s international fund.
