President’s Corner April 2019

Greetings fellow Skalleagues

A BIG Thank You to Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park and Cameron O'Connell, Group Director Sales and Partnerships for their wonderful hospitality and beautiful wildlife setting. We were greeted by some permanent residents such as Giraffes, Zebras and Elephants to start our evening out right.

The hors d' oeuvres were tasty and plentiful and dinner was delicious, the drinks were top shelf and the service was excellent. An added treat was the two complimentary tickets each guest received from Zoo Tampa to visit the park again in the future. We call that Winning!

Speaking of winning, congratulations to Andy Brouillard on winning the 50/50 cash drawing and thank you for donating much of the winnings back to SKAL Others won a Jewelry Ensemble by Carol Eaves, Art by Kathleen Slaven and a Gift Basket from Zoo Tampa.

We would also like to congratulate, long time member, Peter Krueziger and the Bon Appetit Hospitality Group on winning the Clearwater Regional Chamber's 2019 Large Hospitality Business of the Year Award.

Our next meeting will be Monday, May 13, 2019 at Wyndham Grand Hotel in Clearwater Beach. We are excited to visit one of our newest hotels on Clearwater Beach.
