Thank you so very much for allowing MediGold to have access to your meeting rooms. Everyone at the Welcome Center is always very helpful. All of the hard work is much appreciated.
Thank you for making our 13K Lions Tropical Convention such a success. Your staff went above and beyond to help us work out every detail, and then let us decorate and take over the Welcome Center for two great days of food, fun, fellowship and Lions appreciation awards.
I would like to thank you for your outstanding assistance with our recent Rural Tour town hall meeting in Zanesville. Things went very well, due in no small measure to your involvement, and we appreciate your efforts very much.
