Dear Patti,

I wanted to take this opportunity to extend sincere thanks and appreciation on behalf of NEARR for providing space, accessories and support to us on December 10, 2006. Gail let us know you and the staff was terrific and very helpful.  Having the opportunity to set up in a high visibility area was huge plus and contributed to the overall success of the event.
