About this Event

Dan Needles

Dan is part country and part city. He was born in Toronto but moved each spring with his family to their hobby farm in Rosemount, Ontario. Before becoming a playwright, Dan worked as a journalist, speechwriter and insurance executive, just to name a few. He has also managed to explore the world sometime between all those careers! Dan’s humour, life observations, and 4-H knowledge will entertain and leave you wishing for more.
