Toast to staff at Country Club

On behalf of the Baesler family, Brian Reece and myself, I would like to extend a “well done!” to the stellar staff at The Country Club of Terre Haute for its masterful job in making our annual wine tasting event a rousing success. Hat tip to Shelby for her culinary expertise; the food was delicious.

Every autumn, Baesler’s Market partners with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to raise money for cancer research. In the past we have utilized other fine venues for our fundraiser, but the Country Club dovetails perfectly with our needs. My only question for Bob was: Why didn’t we think of this venue years ago?

Becky Woods and Randy Hutts (the general manager) are a class act. I should think it a daunting task to coordinate an event involving 300 people; especially one in which food and wine are the main focus. I know, for me, it would pose a logistical nightmare. But they make it appear effortless. I suppose that speaks volumes about their marvelous managerial skills. At Baesler’s we know a thing or two about providing quality customer service, and we appreciate it when we find ourselves on the receiving end.

Great food, great wine and a great venue all contributing to a very worthy cause; it doesn’t get much better than that. (Special thanks to Gwen Hicks and Patty Wiely of the local Komen affiliate for the sensational way in which they decorated the place.)

In fairness, I can’t credit the Country Club staff for the gorgeous autumn trees or deer grazing on the golf course that greeted us as we drove up to the building, but I suspect that’s about all that did not bear their professional stamp that evening.

Next year, I will sleep easier the week before the event knowing that things are being left in their (very) capable hands. Lastly, thanks for finding us a terrific piano player on such short notice. Steve McCullough can tickle the ivories with the best of them.
