    John gave our Girl Scout Troop a great Ghost Tour this evening. We had girls from 6 through 15. He kept the perfect balance of thrills and chills mixed with whimsy to keep the entire group entertained and wanting more. I recommend him for local groups and our tourists. Thanks, John, for a great evening!

    What a special treat! It was a very hot day but the experience overtook any hardships. John Sutton is a born resident and has always had a love and interest in history, esp. local, and a lot you do not read in history books. You can talk to him about a large gamut of topics. He made everything fun and you were learning a lot before you knew it, and all with laughter, the best way to learn anything or to have fun. Anyone of any age would enjoy his antics, his insight, his treasure chest of knowledge. And he was open to any suggestions or information that could be offered by anyone. I won't give away any details because I wouldn't want to spoil the surprises, you just have to go yourself. You won't look at certain things or words the same way any more after some time with John. I look forward to any and all the tours he would offer anywhere, as well as repeat the ones I have enjoyed. I'm sure you will feel the same. A.S.V.
