This was a phenomenal event! I learned so much about the president. As an historian, I can say that this event was not only informative, but presented in such an interesting way. This was so well researched! It is so nice to have access to free and informational events like this. The amphitheater looks over the beautiful water and mountain. It was fun learning while looking at such a beautiful background! Highly recommend!
