A bit of a stretch; but, found it among today's 'happenings':

 

 

While awaiting the Dream Girl tour, Lucille is grand marshal in a torchlight parade that begins a fund drive by 3000 women for a new medical center of the New York Infirmary Building, in the pouring rain she sat in open carriage for three hours holding an umbrella and smiling in the procession of 600 torches and 35 floats moving down Fifth Avenue, in 1947.

Waffles (Lucy bought them from Phipps Fountain and Tearoom. Food always tastes different when you buy it from Phipps. I don't know WHAT they do to it!)

Another 'stretch', from the 'keeper of the dates', for this date, 7/15:

 

 

TV Guide Dwight Whitney: The President Wore a Dress to the Stockholders Meeting – “Lucille Ball was followed and approached by an attorney in meetings she was having with Jackie Gleason in Miami, trying to get him to appear in a movie she planned to make; needing to make contact with her in her role as President of the largest TV-producing facility in the world. Gulf and Western wanted to buy up Desilu; but, Lucille couldn’t make up her mind – after she had an hour to weep, she said ‘yes,’” published for this week in 1967.
