“My special thanks goes to the entire team that made our event so special. The catered food was amazing – all three entrees were prepared beautifully and rivaled any downtown restaurant in quality.  There were no shortage of comments from Dad, Mom, and our guests on how beautiful the venue was, how wonderful the staff treated them and how memorable the well coordinated event!  It was everything I imagined it would be!”
– Jan Durwood, Durwood Family event
