Open Year Round

Dear Clark, and all staff at The Manchester Inn,

Just wanted to Thank You all from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter Stephanie's Sweet Sixteen party on February 3rd unforgetable! We had hoped it would be good, be this exceeded our expectations.

Your help and suggestions with the preparations was outstanding and every request was answered with a "no problem, we can do that!" The food was delicious and plentiful (even with 50 hungry teenage mouths to feed!) and the theatre show was funny and entertaining. The "auditions" part of the American Ideal show was an hit! Everybody had such a great time, that they are still talking about it. Who knew a whole basketball team could turn out to be talented singers as well! Many of the kid's parents asked us about the show and we are sure to send them your way. Your staff was so helpfull and efficient and I hope we did not leave you with too big of a mess.

Again many thanks for all your help in making Steph's Sweet Sixteen a total success, and we hope to be able to attend many more of the mystery dinner shows in the future.

Joyce and John Petit
