Testimonials

  • "Our evening was a big success!  We held our 26th Annnual Historic Preservation Awards at the lovely campus of St. Anselm College.  The Conference & Event Services staff was great to work with and the Catering staff was extremely accomodating.  Our guests were truly wowed by the peaceful atmosphere, delicious food and elegant service provided in Davison Hall.  The Dana Center was the ideal setting for the presentation of awards and the large screen, in house sound and lighting systems and comfortable seating made for a perfect venue."
