Dear Mr. Maddux,                                                                 September 20, 2009
The Kemplin and Long families along with Derek and Holly would like to take
this opportunity to extend our sincerest "thanks" to you and your staff.  The
wedding reception went well and the food was absolutely wonderful, just as we
expected.  We are still getting compliments on the food and service!  Thanks
to you.  We appreciate how smoothly things went and your clean-up after. 
We were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the wedding reception.  Also, we were
happy to have some left-overs to enjoy, especially after all the stress of planning
a wedding.  Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 
                                                                               Derek and Holly Long

Bette and I wanted to tell you how much we appreciated your helping make our Red Hat
event such a success. The food was delicious, the desserts amazing and the service great.
We had several compliments from the ladies about how wonderful everything was. We look
forward to working with you again and hope you are too as we have to host this event again
 next September. Thanks again for the great service.
