Comments - “Hi Arnold, I wanted you to let you know that there were “rave reviews” for the dinner last night. They were so impressed with everything, you as the storyteller and historian and your students. They will be telling all their friends about the experience. It’s definitely a winner!” – an Island Innkeeper
