 Some of the many wonderful comments about Storyteller James Murray

“I would like to express how much we enjoyed James Murray’s storytelling when he visited us here at Haven Hill Retirement Centre. He has an amazing gift in being able to tell his stories with such descriptive wording and empathy. If you closed your eyes while he was talking, you could almost imagine you were there watching the whole scene unfold. Everyone that attended enjoyed his stories immensely. We would be very happy to have him come back again and again. Many thanks from all of us to Tim Hortons for your sponsorship of this program.”

“I want you to know just how much our residents appreciated listening to an evening of James Murray telling his stories. As I looked through the audience during the performance, it was evident that he was bringing back a lot of memories. Many residents had tears in their eyes. The story of his dog was my personal favourite. Thank you to Tim Horton’s for sponsoring this very special concert.”

“The residents at Vernon Restholm thoroughly enjoyed listening to James Murray tell his stories. It brought back some great memories for them. It was such a special touch when he also allowed them to share their own stories. Everyone agreed that James would be more than welcome to come back for a visit anytime. Thank-you for allowing us to be a part of the Tim Hortons Senior’s Entertainment Tour. Thanks again.”
Nancy Olson, Recreation Assistant, Vernon Restholm

“Our residents thoroughly enjoyed listening to James Murray share his wonderful stories last evening. It was an unique evening, one our residents do not usually have the opportunity to be part of. We congratulate Tim Hortons on recognizing and promoting Mr. Murray’s special gift for telling stories. Hope we can be part of this type of programming in the future. Thanks again.”
