What Clients Are Saying
Prepare to be awestruck if you host Michigan author Teresa Irishâ€™s "A Thousand Letters Home" presentation. A select group of our clients were privileged to be able to experience the journey that Ms. Irish so eloquently takes you on. Although the setting (WWII) took place before her time, she makes you feel like you are walking right along with her as she uncovers the treasures found in her fatherâ€™s war chest. I have never seen such a captivated audience â€“ seat backs were definitely not needed that night! There were tears at times and laughter at others â€“ all woven together by an exceptional storyteller. Her tribute to our countryâ€™s history and veterans, and call to citizenship, completed the night. This is truly an event not to miss!
