"Dear Drew, Jim and I want to thank you all -Eric, Karen, Patti- for the wonderful Red Sox trip. Our son Scott couldn't say enough about the great time he had. It sounds like the weather was just about perfect." Thank you again- Mr. and Mrs. M.

"I just wanted to say thank you one more time to you and your team for bringing Helen and Pauline on the Columbus Day weekend foliage trip in New Hampshire. Pauline recently passed away, but the two ladies talked about that trip often. They had a lot of fun together and you made that possible! Now Helen has a great memory to cherish. Thank you for the work you all do!"
