Speaker/Storyteller: Robert Skoglund

The humble Farmer

"I've heard nothing but good things about the event, and your part made quite a difference! I've been to many, many dinners for various Chambers and usually the speaker is someone who is about as interesting as the salad that's being served. You made the night fun and special! The bank plans on sponsoring the dinner again next year due to its great success!"

Karyn Scharf, Branch Manager

Thanks to Gerry Gilbert, Chamber President; Gary Branyen; Kimberly Schoen and all the members of the Greater Somersworth Area Chamber of Commerce for inviting me to entertain at the beautiful Lodge at Spring Hill in South Berwick, Maine

Thank you, thank you, for your overwhelming response. You were the kind of audience that every entertainer lives for.

Thank you for your applause and laughter.

Meeting planner: Introduce your speaker before the awards (no later than 8 P. M) and your friends in the audience will respond with laughter and cheers.

This is why meeting planners should never introduce a speaker after 8:30 PM.

"Your talk was a riot and a great piece to a great night."

Mr. & Mrs. Gary Branyen. Ten or more years ago Gary heard humble speak at a New York Life meeting and mailed humble the following: "I can't remember laughing as much in my life... I was on the verge of getting ill from laughing so much. I can easily recommend you to any group, your humor and style appeal to all age groups and demographics."

Hopefully, I'm better now than I was back then.

"The show was wonderful and the chamber folks are still talking about it. I know you picked up some new listeners."

Thank you for looking at the pictures.

And thank you for the wonderful welcome you gave humble at Harland Goodwin's beautiful Spring Hill Banquet Hall & Restaurant in South Berwick. Harland's number is 207-384-2693.

"I went to a one room school."

"The teacher always taught the lesson the the slowest one in the room."

"When we were 15, every Friday night we'd go to a dance at the St. George Grange."

"It was right next to the school."
