Thank you so much for helping me with the tent. I loved my spot.  May I request (the) same spot for the upcoming events?

Also special thank you for your colleague who was checking on us periodically.  I was able to go to the bathroom.   I really feel that you (are) taking care of your business.

Thank you for including me in your line up for the Walk about Tremont. Despite the rain I had a good time. I am interested in next month but I may have a new day care signed up for that day and the times would overlap. I will let you know when the director makes her final decision.

If we have more level ground I would like to do a demo for my science program. It will be a chain reaction challenge. When I do this even the adults get into it.

Hi Jeanette,
Leslie told me to email you regarding this. I have been so impressed by and excited to be a vendor at the Old Firehouse Winery events that you all organize. I would absolutely love to be your back up LuLaRoe Vendor if ever needed.
I’m really eager and excited to do events all over, so if you ever have a need in any of the events that you arrange, please contact me. I’d love to do them all.
Thanks so much for your consideration, and for giving me the opportunities I’ve had so far. It’s been a great experience.

Dear Lisa,

Thanks for all your fantastic assistance yesterday, and your excellent help, work, talent & support with the Art Show. I went around and spoke to most of the artists, and even though some did extremely well…a couple told me they virtually “sold out” of some items…and others told me they just did fair, they all thought it was a terrific and well-organized show.

Thanks again for everything, my friend!

Hi Lisa,

I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to have space at the Polar Fest. The dogs were very comfortable and I think the crowd really enjoyed them. It was certainly a very dog-friendly atmosphere. We made enough money to cover the costs of 1.5 dogs. We can’t afford to buy booth space so your generosity is greatly appreciated. And, you helped us save another dog. Thank you, thank you!

On behalf of Weber’s Premium Custard & Ice Cream, I’d like to thank you, Right Reverend Mitred Archpriest John S. Kachuba, Pastor; Father Deacon Daniel Surniak and the European Festival Committee for inviting us to participate in this year’s festival. We thoroughly enjoyed the festival and appreciate all of the cooperation and assistance you provided both ahead of and during the event.
Unfortunately we had some rainy weather and what appeared to be a smaller crowd than last year , but it didn’t seem to dampen the spirits or enthusiasm of those who attended the festival. The food/ bakery items were excellent (especially the chicken paprikash and stuffed cabbage) and the entertainment (ethnic music and dancing) was very well done. Also, you, the Parish Staff and Festival Committee did an excellent job in planning, promoting and executing the festival.
It’s a shame the weather ruined what could have been a fantastic cultural experience. I guess we can only affect the aspects of the event that we have control over. Mother Nature definitely has a mind of her own and she exercises it at her complete discretion . Anyways, your team made a terrific effort and that’s what really matters!
Congratulations to everyone involved on another job well done!
We definitely look forward to participating again in your 7th Annual European Festival in 2016. Hopefully we can get the weather to cooperate next year, so we can see the festival operate in its full capacity and glory.
Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable Fall Season.

Dear Lisa,

On behalf of Celestial Treats Lemonade and Revolutionary Kettle Corn, I’d like to thank you, The Brookside Stadium Preservation Society, The Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation and The City of Cleveland for inviting us to participate in your Baseball Spectacular Show.

It’s a shame the weather ruined what could have been a truly SPECTACULAR event and commemoration of a great stadium and historical time in Cleveland history. We would have enjoyed seeing the show, baseball games and other related activities in their full glory and intended operation, but Mother Nature had a different idea. Anyways, your team and all of the other entities made a great effort and that’s all that really counts!

It was a pleasure working with you and everyone associated with the festival.

Dear Lisa,

On behalf of Revolutionary  Kettle Corn, I’d like to thank you for inviting us to participate in this year’s series of Arts & Crafts Shows at Geneva-on-the-Lake. We enjoyed the shows and appreciate all of the cooperation and assistance you and Ellen provided both ahead of and during the events.

We started the series out pretty strong with the show on July 12th, however, we kind of fizzled out as inclement weather, smaller crowds and personal circumstances unfortunately interfered with our momentum. All in all, the shows were well run and we felt they were worth our time/effort. Overall, they produced positive results and offered good exposure for our kettle corn product. It’s always a pleasure working with you and your fine tuned organization.

Congratulations to everyone involved on a job well done!

Hopefully you thought our participation enhanced your shows and you will invite us to return again next year. We would like to return and help make your 2015 shows an even greater success.
