Here is testimonial from one of our clients:

We’re very lucky to have this first-rate space available for our neighborhood association meetings.  We have used the space for social events, formal presentations, and more interactive meetings.  Deb anticipates our needs so we can focus on the meeting itself, not the logistics.  And the occasional last-minute change or unforeseen issue is taken in stride and good humor. We couldn’t ask for a better place for our meetings.
