You were amazing, Christine.  Thank you again for all you did.”

“Thank you for your production of the most elegant Annual Meeting in the history of the Rachel Carson Homestead Association. You have moved the benchmark on the road to continuous improvement.

I appreciate your attention to detail and design sense. You were able to create a wonderful ambiance within the limits of the situation.”

“What a wonderful event you produced tonight. Great evening, inspirational women, fabulous food.

We were talking in the car about how we can assist Bartko, and how through this exposure to our collective expansive contacts, they will surely succeed in reaching their expanded goals. The three sisters comprise a formidable base of non-profit experience…and now with this exposure and what’s to come, they can now influence a much larger and deserving community of women. I am very honored to be part of this group and would like to be part of the founders support group you are organizing.

One of the best outcomes of my design practice has been the people I have met along the way who are no longer simply clients and associates ….but friends. I am so pleased to have been able to build that with Melanie and with you.

You outdid yourself tonight.”
