To The Supervisor at Alley Pond,
Good morning. My daughter’s 4th birthday party was held at Alley Pond Environmental Center this past February. I am writing now to thank all of you and especially the educators that co-lead the group. They were wonderful. All of your staff were so easy going yet guiding for us. No one seemed to get ruffled by the almost 20 4-year-olds running around. The patience they had was amazing. They kept the party moving yet were not rigid. The animal exposure was great.
The teachers explained everything so carefully and at the right level. The hike was wonderful, even given the record amounts of snow we had just the day before. How wonderful that the trail was plowed andshoveled; I never expected that. All in all we had a great experience, and all of my guests have been calling to compliment me on a wonderful party, so I wanted to pass along the thanks. It was a pleasure.
