A Wonderful Family Vacation

The Resort Was Perfect
“Just want to send a note of THANK YOU!!! I’m still hearing from family about how much fun they had and how wonderful Cragun’s was. Here are some of the comments: “The resort was perfect, plenty to do, big rooms, good food, and on a great lake.” “I got 3 hours of complaining how they “didn’t want to leave Minnesota” on the drive back to the Twin Cities”. “I’m now hearing talk amongst the Charlton “grapevine” that we’ve found “The Reunion Place” and that a return trip makes a lot of sense in 2-3 years.” “What an amazing vacation we had! I went to work and told everybody who even slightly inquired how MN was and told them what a terrific time we all had! Nobody could believe it! I think they all thought I would come back looking like a giant mosquito bite!” Again, thank you so much for your help and even putting up with me. I get the impression we’ll be back.”
Dick Lafean, MN June 12, 2015

Great Detail Put Into Our Meeting
“Being at a secluded resort enabled our board to run free with ideas without the distractions of the office or hometown. We met all the goals of our meeting and had time to network with colleagues.

Thank you for the great detail you put into our meeting, you made the smallest of meetings turn into an event that we’ll remember for a long time.”
