We like to celebrate the area’s distinctive character as well as our building’s unique historic charm. We were excited to welcome John Gurda,” said Bill Eason, director of sales and marketing. “Our dining services team dove right in to support this popular event by preparing appetizer and beverage pairings, and guests had the opportunity to visit with Mr. Gurda.
