To whom it may concern,

Please extend our thanks to all the employees of the Seaside Convention Center; we were thrilled to have our 162nd Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of Oregon at your facility. The venue was especially suited to all our needs, and the Conference was an overall success. We received glowing praises from all who attended, including visitors from as far east as Maryland and north as far as British Columbia/Yukon and Alaska.

Everything we needed was provided, and the staff was consistently helpful and courteous at all times. The sound and video systems were exceptional, and you provided help with those at all times when it was needed. You performed the setup and breakdown of tables and rooms with all expediency and left us plenty of time to decorate prior to each dinner.

Additionally, your Catering Specialists, Oregon Fine Foods, Inc. should be highly commended. Rosco Rotella, your chef and food service coordinator, along with Sharon and Kelly, and the bar manager, did an outstanding job. Many comments were received about how friendly and courteous the food servers were, and they were there instantly when something was needed. The staff, both from the Convention Center and the Caterer, helped to setup and decorate the tables at each meal. The no-host bars provided at the dinner banquets were also exceptional. Every meal served was hot and delicious; the steaks were tender, the fish cooked perfectly, the lunches wonderful, and all at reasonable prices.

The Seaside Convention is truly an outstanding venue; I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is considering it for their event.


Sincerely and Fraternally,
Richard A. Martin
