That was a great speaker, Kurt. I have been dropping his historical trivia on the kids all car ride long and my little one actually asked if I had more historical facts I could share.
Thanks for hosting, John!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Good Morning Joel,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the marvelous presentation you gave for our Great Horizons members on George Washington, Morristown, and the Revolutionary War.

I received an overwhelmingly positive response from our members with many calling the presentation "outstanding, great, engaging, and informative."

Dealing with you is always a pleasure as you are so organized and well prepared.

Thanks again!

Karin Ruppel
Great Horizons Program Coordinator

Dear Joel,

Thank you so very much for doing your talk at the library last Thursday. You did a fantastic job retelling the early part of American history and received great marks on our brief survey. I will definitely recommend you to our group of library program directors and am happy to pass out your card at the next meeting scheduled for March. Typically there are 20-25 directors at these meetings. You can drop off your card at the front desk of the library anytime and tell the person at desk that they are for me. If you do not have time to drop off cards, I will still share your contact information with the group.

Thank you again for coming to the Mendham Township Library.

Have a great day,


Thanks again for this morning's tour. Your "passion" for the subject is not only on your business card...but apparent in your presentation. No need to go for certification. You ARE teaching history...and you have no papers to mark!

Mr. Farkas,

I wanted to personally thank you again for the absolutely wonderfull talk you gave at Morris Museum on Veterans Day, 2017.

The audience was interested and engaged, and your talk was informative and enjoyable. We so appreciated it! We would love to have you back sometime soon.

Emma told me that you also have a wonderful collection of historical signatures and other items. We are doing an exhibit here in the near future, for which your items may be a nice fit. Might I forward your email address to our Curator of Exhibits, Alexandra Willis, and have her tell you more about it?

Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon!
