The whole group enjoyed your show. Your presentation was good. The clean comedy was very much appreciated by everyone in our group. I enjoyed it very much."

"Your program was fun. Your Canary really made us laugh. We also enjoyed the balloon "creatures" you made. Next time, we would probably request that you create more of those. Your inclusion of the Bible was great, especially since this was our service. Thank you for being flexible with our group."

"The Midlothian Rotary Club was grateful to receive an inspirational message from Mary Canary, proving that Mary's talents are not just for kids. Though still a lot of fun for our group, the Rotarians were able to engage in a meaningful and instructional discussion on how to expand our outreach and encourage our members. We highly recommend Mary if your group is seeking motivation from a lady who is not afraid to tell it like it is."

Motivational Presentation (Customer Service)

Thank you very much for all that you did for my sister-n-law on her birthday. We still talk about it to this day. In fact, a few people at Shelton's still talk about it. I have given your phone number to them in case they ever need anyone to do some entertaining. We loved what you did, and hope to use you again at another one of our parties. Thank you so much."
