I just wanted to tell you how nice everything was last Saturday for Megan and Brian’s reception. So many guests mentioned how delicious the food was, especially the crab cakes (please tell Chef Larry!). I have to tell you that the Civic Center staff was wonderful! Many guests commented how friendly and helpful they were! One staff person even brought out two bottles of cold water for Megan and Brian when they left to go on their honeymoon! That was so kind and unexpected! (They had a 1 ½ hour drive.) I even received a card in the mail yesterday from my Aunt and Uncle saying how nice the reception was and how friendly and helpful the Civic Center staff was!
