The very first Vent Haven ConVENTion that Helen and I attended was 10 years ago and after we had registered we were sitting in the lobby of the Drawbridge.
It was Tuesday and so we were there early. A nice fellow approached us and asked if we were there for the ventriloquist ConVENTion and we of course said yes. That very nice man was Lee Wolfson. We hit it off right away he having attended before and we as newbies.
Over the years we became very close friends and we always found each other prior to the start of the festivities. A couple of years ago Lee brought this wonderful woman with him and he introduced her to me and Helen as his girlfriend Carol. We loved her instantly and told Lee he found the right girl. Well he indeed did find her and last year they wed.
This was their first year anniversary and they were in New York celebrating and asked if they could make the short trip up from NY to Boston so that they could see the collection. I of course was thrilled to have them come to see and they had a great visit with me and the Ventriloquist Central Collection.
I do hope they both can come back again some time in the future and share a few moments with me again.
Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com
