Compliment: Night Before Christmas Carol, New Bern, NC

Dear David and Serena,

It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad you enjoyed your trip to New Bern. We had a fantastic response to the performance.  I'm sure audience members must have shared their compliments with both of you.

Thank you for donating copies of your DVD's to the library.  I look forward to seeing War Bonds after our recent trip and touring the World War II museum.  I appreciate your generosity. You were both so easy to work with.  I hope we can do so again.  Merry Christmas.

Sincerely,

Joanne Straight
