REMEMBER THOSE LETTERS BBO ENCOURAGED US TO WRITE TO EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION FOR THE SUPERB JOB DONE BY THE HOTEL MANAGEMENT AND STAFF IN HOSTING OUR REUNION?  SUCH LETTERS -- ESPECIALLY WHEN SINCERE AND SPECIFIC AND NOT JUST FILLED WITH PLATITUDES -- WILL NOT ONLY BE HELPFUL TO THOSE WHO PROVIDED GOOD SERVICE, THEY WILL ALSO GO A LONG WAY TOWARD ENHANCING OUR REPUTATION AS A FIRST-CLASS OUTFIT.  THEY ARE MOST MEANINGFUL WHEN THEY INCLUDE, AS BBO SUGGESTS, "AT LEAST ONE SPECIFIC STORY ABOUT THE GOOD INTERACTION YOU HAD WITH ONE OF THE EMPLOYEES OR THE QUALITY OF THE DINNER. A HOTEL IS REALLY ABOUT STAFF ATTITUDE." PLEASE SEND YOUR LETTER OF APPRECIATION TO:
