Patrick McKenna Coming to LME

Landmark East School is pleased to announce, Patrick McKenna, comic, TV and film personality is coming to the Valley.

On June 14th he will be joining us as the keynote speaker for our Graduation and Closing Ceremony being held at the Al Whittle Theatre on Main Street in Wolfville.  Patrick is perhaps best known for his role as Harold Green from the Red Green show and his five years on the hit show Traders. But it’s his work on the award winning Canadian documentary “ADD and Loving IT?!” that brings Patrick the most personal satisfaction. Patrick was diagnosed in his forties and now uses his ADD experiences and hilarious perspective to tour universities, conferences and PBS stations throughout North America promoting the benefits of ADHD testing in children and adults.

ADD & Loving It?!

Comedians Patrick McKenna and Rick Green seek a diagnosis for Adult ADHD and learn the facts from an impressive array of experts (some of whom have ADHD themselves!) including medical researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists, professors, and award-winning authors. Along the way Patrick reveals how his life as a husband and father are affected by ADD and even shares personal moments as he and his wife Janis work on the steps toward his diagnosis.
