We’re feeling very blessed with this beautiful fall weather and especially grateful that the sun was shining on our annual golfing, fishing and clay shooting events this year.
We collectively decided each beautiful day had been ordered by our own, Judy Bayer. She would have been glad to see so many of you in attendance and relieved that we didn’t have to make alternative arrangements for inclement weather.
She had to do that on more than one occasion in her 15 years of hosting events for our company.
About ten years ago she agreed, for the first (and only) time to try hosting the Thank You dinner for our vendors at home, lakeside. Asking everyone to help her pick up five, six-foot round tables, fifty chairs, tablecloths and place settings and run them inside out of the pouring rain was not her idea of a successful event. It also made for a very intimate dinner…in every inch of the lower level family room! To date, it was the coziest event she ever hosted.
A few years prior to that, the golf event was scheduled and fully set up at South Brook Golf Course. With three holes completely underwater from the previous night’s rain, a clubhouse full of golfers, approximately 140 of them, she had to find a way to pull off the event. The local bus service was enlisted to shuttle everyone from South Brook’s course to Whispering Pine’s course for golfing and back to South Brook for dinner and prizes. It was a memorable day.
What she loved most about hosting was good music, hearing friends laugh with each other and making sure there was plenty of good food. We hope you experienced all of these things and enjoyed time away from your desk and busy schedules. We look forward to these events each year because it gives us the opportunity to say thank you, again, for your business.
We are truly blessed to have your loyalty and friendship.
On behalf of all of us, we look forward to helping you make the rest of 2016 a success!
