Excerpt from Letter

QUESTION: Who was the first member of a celebrity family to be fined for littering in public?

ANSWER: You have to see Dave’s show to find out.

“Dear Dave, I am writing to thank you for the outstanding assembly program that you presented to our students last week.  The presentation was both interactive and informative.  Our students were highly engaged and remained attentive and interested throughout the entire program.  Presenting littering and recycling as a highly valuable personal and corporate practice and relating this practice to the preservation of wildlife and their habitats, really made an impact on the students.  I watched as both their minds and their perspectives were enhanced through the slide show, the human food chain and recycling object lessons were presented. Thank you again for your creative commitment to education and our environment.  We have grown wiser as a result of your efforts.”
