Schumacher Lions Club
"The Schumacher Lions Club recently held our annual Spring Sportsman Show and we invited Amanda Lynn Mayhew to be one of our guest speakers and to meet with all who attended the show. This was our 3rd time inviting Amanda and she never disappoints. Her jovial attitude coupled with her genuine love of meeting and chatting with young and old sharing her stories has once again shined brightly throughout the show. From taking countless selfies with everyone who asked to sharing her vast knowledge in Hunting and Fishing that she has amassed over the years; she was able to entertain and impress all who had the pleasure of listening to her. She is a gifted story teller who captures the audience like few can. The Schumacher Lions have received countless praise for what Amanda has brought to our show and we have already booked her services for 2024. We highly recommend to any organization that is looking for a very skilled, personable and genuinely amazing expert at Hunting & Fishing as well as capturing an audience the way Amanda does to book her services. I would be happy to discuss our experiences with Amanda at our show at anytime."
