I just wanted to thank you so much for coming and presenting your fascinating story. What an incredible amount of history!  I was very impressed by the amount of time you’ve dedicated to the research you’ve done, and the ease with which you answered our questions can only be generated by someone with an incredible amount of knowledge on the subject.  I am very grateful you came and shared your family’s history with us.  Looking forward to the next book! 

Be well, Devon Berry, Program Director 




I especially loved their collection of birds. They have dozens of them.
