​Laugh Lecture​:  Carol is a communal treasure.  Her multimedia, aerobic workshop "LIVE LIFE with LAUGHTER---FOR the HEaLth OF IT!" is an uproarious, creative non-stop adventure.  Other adjectives come to mind: riveting, community-building, educational, and life-enhancing.

Carol's experience as a teacher, a student of ​sociology​, and even as a clown of renown, enables her to be warmly empathetic with all audiences, but especially those experiencing high-stress careers, such as caretakers to those with a life-threatening illness or extreme needs.  Her style is playfully irreverent, self-deprecating, and yet deep in the wisdom that every person needs to connect with our inner joyful spirit.

Thanks for getting back to us. Eric was awesome! He was a big hit even the older guests got their picture done! Eric says he loves doing older folks. Not all the expected guests attended, their loss, everyone present got theirs done some with a partner & single some with color. Was fun to watch! It was perfect to have him & really topped of the event. Thank you for helping to arrange it last minute. I appreciate it.  Also, the baby shower was a BLAST! Everything was perfect!  Take care!

Thank you so much. Ben was amazing. Everybody kept talking about how entertaining he was. Really appreciate it. You guys helped make it a memorable day.  Peter Woodbridge, VA


Miss Lyn was incredible. She was a total professional from start to finish and very accommodating in terms of making sure that all of our party guests participated in the face painting--even though we had a few latecomers, and she had another event to go to! When there was a small lull in the party, she even went out to her car and got some balloons and made incredible balloon sculptures--aliens, tigers, cats, and other fantastic designs! Best of all, she just seemed like a really kind person. Miss Lyn was amazing, I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending her to everyone I know.

Hi Carol!  I had you on my list to call today…. Ben was awesome!  He really was great.  I would use him for any theme… he is so fun.  The kids LOVED him.  For not knowing anything about science experiments… he rolled with it all beautifully.  I am fairly organized (I think he will tell you J)…. So all experiments were measured and set up for all kids.  He was entertaining… and that isn’t easy with 20 kids who are 5 years old.  Let’s just add that it was in a tight space too.  He really really did a great job.  He dressed the part, was super enthusiastic and funny.  The kids and adults just LOVED him.  J  Thank you!!!!! 



Mr. M was exceptional, he was nice and courteous and more importantly, he is a great artist! Both kids and adults had so much fun, thank you

Maggie was great! She was very pleasant and the children loved her and the many animal's flowers and characters that she painted. Have a good afternoon, Cindy G Welburn Management.

Maggie: the face painting was stunning. You are a true master at your craft. Thank you for all of the research and effort you put in just to ensure that everything was up to par. You exceeded my expectations and can't wait to see what we conjure up next!

 

Lyn/Maggie: Thank you both for all of the hard work you put in to track down Tim. He was awesome! Just the person I wanted to greet guests, assist with the raffle, and all-around wow folks. I loved watching the reactions as Tim "emerged" from the elevator (for lack of a better term! :) Danielle Couick, CPCEPrincipal | Designer, and Planner
