GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS
GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS has been the highlight of many events. Consider it for your next gathering. Vern will speak to you and tailor his presentation to your group’s interests.
OUR COUNTRY IS A BEACON OF LIGHT.
America continues to draw people from around the world. The formation of this country is unique in the history of mankind. We were founded on ideas, not heredity, ethnicity, language or wealth, but on the idea that man can rule himself.
GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS primarily provides in-person, on-site presentations with time for audience questions and answers. A typical presentation will be 15-25 minutes long, plus time to interact. If desired, George can be available for photos afterwards.
We are currently adding a series of 6-10 minute videos designed for the classroom, which allow a follow up zoom appearance for questions and answers. Occasionally other historic figures join the presentations providing a broader view of our nation's early history.
Twenty-five percent of our presentations have been to public and private elementary, middle school and high school students. George shares with them many of the events that surrounded the founding of this country, encourages them to be young women and men of good character, and inspires them to become involved and active in the communities and our country. He challenges the older students and adults to consider what “We the People” means, a call for every citizen to take an active role in civic affairs.
With Vern Frykholm’s portrayal of our first Commander-in-Chief and President of the United States, it is like speaking to George Washington himself.
He brings a convincing portrayal of George Washington wherever he speaks.
Vern consistently stays in character, and is entertaining, educational, and inspiring. Would you like a new way to learn more about this important leader and the times in which he lived and worked? Contact us now.

ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS
Vern Frykholm was inspired to portray George Washington after listening to Dr. Peter Lillback talk about his book, “George Washington’s Sacred Fire” in 2011 at the George Washington Inn near Sequim, Washington.
In July, 2012, Vern joined 50 other people to tour Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Dr. Lillback.
During that week they visited many historic places involving the American Revolution. The tour ended at Valley Forge, where Dean Malissa, the foremost portrayer of George Washington in the nation, presented his thoughts on the revolution. Vern was so impressed by his presentation, he became convinced that the State of Washington deserved its own George Washington.
Since then, Vern has made more than 400 appearances, talked to more than 24,000 people, and has been the keynote speaker at various state and regional conferences.
Vern’s goal is to present early America from Washington’s viewpoint with as much historical accuracy as possible. His presentations are not only educational, but entertaining and inspirational for all audiences: young people, retirees, businessmen, civic and patriotic groups, and veterans.
Thank you for your interest. Looking forward to further conversations.
Vernon L. Frykholm aka George Washington
Other presentations have been given to groups as varied as Rotary, Kiwanis and philanthropic clubs, Grange Halls, Retirement communities, Genealogical clubs, churches, and even private dinner parties.
