“… a week after your talk and had a lot of people ask if we were going to have another session. Have passed on all the comments and terrific feedback that we got. A borrower on Saturday mentioned that he heard you on the radio. He has asked us to find books and DVDs on beekeeping for him. You have both made a wonderful impression on the public and me and brought back memories of my father and his beehives… –Anna Roberts, Acquistion Officer, Casey Cardinia Libraries
