There were 40 guests in attendance including Town Crier Chris Whyman, Kingston Mayor Mark Gerretsen and Liberal MP Ted Hsu. The SALON Acting Company was on hand to welcome the Ambassador and perform scenes and vignettes for him and his
tour guests. As an added bonus The Acting Company brought their own special guest, in the form of former US President and Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, who performed the Gettysburg Address for all those in attendance.
The tour was a smashing success and we are so excited to see some great press coverage, locally here in Kingston as well as in Ottawa.
