Speaking at the Pot & Kettle Club in Bar Harbor, Maine

During the month of August, I had the wonderful opportunity of speaking to an audience at The Pot and Kettle Club, located in Bar Harbor, Maine. The subject of my speech was about how inspiring Maine has been to me personally, since acquiring my home, Skylands. I spoke of how we have featured Maine in at least 50 magazine stories and how this beautiful state has been the setting of 79 of our television segments.

The very stately fire place at The Pot and Kettle Club.

The Pot and Kettle Club is an exclusive gentlemen’s club with about 120 members. During the months of July and August, this long-time institution inspires its members and their guests by inviting speakers of prominence and expertise in a given field – government, business, the arts, the media, the environment, medicine, etc. – followed by a question and answer period. It was my second time speaking there and I sincerely hope The Pot and Kettle Club will ask me back again.
