“Everyone had a wonderful time, thanks to all the extra effort you put into our group.  Believe me it didn’t go unnoticed.  I have done this enough to realize all the little extra things take a lot of time  & effort. Everyone was so surprised It was a perfect Mystery Trip.  I know I will do well on my next one because this was such a success.  I told you we would bring good weather & it was perfect when we were there.  There was just enough chill in the air for the parade to make it festive. Thanks for the ornaments, all the pictures the extra snacks, floats, tree & decorations and for setting up so many sites.  Everything was greatly appreciated.”
