Lucille Ball's chauffeur will be one of the main attractions as fans and former Hollywood associates gather here Aug. 6-8 for the annual Lucille Ball Birthday Celebration.

Frank Gorey, driver for the comedian for 30 years, will share some of his yet-to-be-published memoir, "Being Frank With Lucy," after a 10 a.m. breakfast Aug. 8 in Reg Lenna Civic Center, 116 E. Third St.

Later that day, at 3:30 p.m., in the Lenna Center, Wanda Clark, secretary to Ball for more than 25 years, will be host for a special screening of "Mame," her last major motion picture.

Festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 6 on City Hall Plaza with a "Lucy-Desi Musical Revue" by Jamestown Suzuki Strings & Friends and a mayoral proclamation, followed by "Lucy's Birthday Cake Bake-off" with free birthday cake.
