Amanda and Paul
Thank you so much for your patience while we navigated through the process! On a personal note, the Chase Center was an awesome venue for our employees. This type of program and venue made them feel worthy to be a school nutrition employee. They were treated like royalty! Thanks for making it an unforgettable experience. Thanks for your cooperation and assistance!
School of Nuturition
I know that others will send their thanks, but certainly I need to send this really heartfelt acknowledgement of your "above and beyond" work on our behalf. 2014 HMA was a wonderful success! YOU made it possible for us to successfully execute our plan for this truly authentic interaction. Also, the servers were just fabulous. It was so quiet during the conversation that we could hear ourselves breath! The wine flowed beautifully, and folks at my table were just intoxicated with how efficiently everything ran. We got many compliments which we are obliged to pass along to you. We can never do better than the wonderful support that we get with you .
