Thank You, Baltimore!

A special “shout out” to CEO John Hoey for ordering 190 books for his staff.  Clark spoke at their recent conference.  Two of his staff were so clever—they had CLARK bars on each table immediately after Clark’s speech.  This is an impressive team with the audience so engaged during my husband’s speech.  If your staff is interested in having Clark speak, please contact me at carolynbaker@bcglobal.net.  Thanks to John and the Maryland area YMCA.
