A thank you so much Patti and James for a wonderful day!  We will never forget it.  Just watching the children's faces at the assemblies made me realize that's what it's all about.

I want to thank the both of you for adding so much to the overall success of this year's Fall Fest. You both are very talented and truly fun and entertaining. I believe that our folklore is an important part of our cultural identity and have great respect for the power of storytelling. I hope that you take part in more events in the future. Tusen takk.

What a delight it was to watch the two of you work your magic as you amused your audience with such excitement and enthusiams on stage! Your animation during the wonderful stories you both acted out were both fun and hilarious to watch. I really enjoyed your talent and laughed endlessly in my seat. Hope to catch another brilliant performance soon.
