Thank you to everyone who attended my Mark Twain performance at Mifflin Community Library last night. Place was packed and we had to bring in extra chairs. I was so happy to perform for everyone and there were several friends in the audience as well. It made for a very special night. Response was humbling with comments like amazing, astounding, incredible and spectacular. Special thanks to Madison Kaley at Mifflin Library.
What a knee-slapping good time at the 100th Anniversary Banquet of the Pottsville Kiwanis Club. Great crowd (they laughed at my jokes), warm reception and very kind folks. Congratulations on your centennial achievement. You do so much for children in the region.
“Hi Roger! I work for Union Gap, Washington Tourism, I was at the show here in Yakima, WA – we absolutely loved it! I posted photos and more on our Facebook page as well as the Central WA Ag Museum’s page – we could have listened for hours more! It inspired us to watch a Mark Twain documentary shortly thereafter. I would like to have met you in person, but the opportunity just didn’t present itself. Thanks so much for the wonderful performance!”
Cathy and I visited Yakima, Washington for three performances of “Here’s Mark Twain: one for middle school children; one for a Lion’s Club convention; and then a public performance for 300 people at Four Corners Church. The visit was a benefit for the Olde Yakima Letterpress Museum and our hosts, who founded the museum, were Dr. Ruth Bishop and the Reverend Fred Hutchinson. They could not have been more gracious, attentive or generous. The public show featured the winners of a Samuel Clemen’s Essay Contest for 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The young writers were wonderful. We had a terrific time and really enjoyed our first visit to the northwest.
