80th Birthday

Hi Nat, thank you and your staff for everything today. Everyone loved it. I have seen pics of the venue all set and it looked amazing. Can’t believe I chose today of all days to get Covid. People commented on how good the service was, food went down a treat and the last minute baker did a great job. Big praise from a room full of old country cooks. Can’t believe you have another event tonight! Thank you once again, Lisa, Kylie, Justin and Cory
