"I want to thank Mr. Carpenter for his presentation at Attleboro Village on Thursday. The response from our residents was most positive. I've been hearing raves all day about the material he covered and noteworthy about his humor and the manner in which he related to the audience. As evidenced by the number of questions , it was obvious that his talk was enjoyed and appreciated. Once again, our gratitude for spending his time with us."
