Rave Reviews About Alton Brown
The talk was exactly what we had in mind, and he was able to touch the lives of almost 2000 Scouts & adult volunteers. It was a good message about being able to do things other than the microwave & PBJ for the kids! We really enjoyed his take on what Scouting did for him. He was humorous, exciting, and related well to the audience.
