David, then Manager of the University Bookstore at UWRF, assisted Price when he was on campus for an interpretive performance on February 12th, 1978. Day was responsible for picking up Price from the airport, bringing him to his hotel and the event at UWRF, and then making sure he had dinner, returned to the hotel, and made his flight out the following morning.
  • b Day and his wife, Sam (a student at UWRF) prepared a meal for Price at their home in the event that Price accepted their invitation to dine at their home. David Day later asked Price about why he had accepted their invitation. Price, a noted gourmet, said that "...he had been traveling a lot and was missing home. So he then explained why when we offered a home meal, he accepted without hesitation."
    The Days served ham with pineapple carousal and scalloped potatoes, which Day would comment on in 2020, "How very mid-western...". Price was a very gracious guest and even though Price said that "...he wanted to be back to the hotel no later than 11:15", he didn't make it back to his hotel until well after 1AM. His thank you letter to the Days, undated but mailed within the week after the event in a stationary envelope from the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburg, PA, stated, "What a delightful time you gave me in River Falls. I did so enjoy your company, the audience and reception and especially our visit in your home!"
