“I cannot express how pleasurable you and the entire Carousel staff have made this daunting task. I appreciate the hard work, experience and detailed eye that you and everyone representing the Carousel have been during the long planning process.

“Kim, thanks to everyone at the Carousel for helping us conduct another very successful Rotary Youth Leadership Conference. There were virtually no problems and when we needed anything it was provided quickly and with a smile…We enjoyed all five buffet meals and the Friday night pizza. The buffet line was always ready ahead of schedule, the food was delicious and bountiful and the staff was very attentive. Having directed summer camps for over 30 years, I know it is rare for teenagers to compliment camp/conference food but the evaluations from past RYLAs have always been very positive about the food…I have always enjoy working with you Kim (I believe this is my eighth event at the Carousel) as you are very diligent in requesting information from me in a timely manner… Thanks again for providing a great place to conduct youth events. “ Dan Tabler (Rotary Youth Leadership) “We had a blast! Kevin was very polite anything we ask he provided for us. The staff was wonderful food was served on time. Kim was so wonderful she worked with me throughout the year .My hat is off to her. I look forward to next year.”

“We were extremely happy with and grateful for the expert knowledge and assistance from Kim Heffner during every step of the planning of our reunion. She was prompt, courteous and respectful in responding to our endless questions and concerns. She was always willing to guide us in the right directions and keep us on track. She was honest and upfront with her clarifications, suggestions and explanations of every aspect of the planning which gave us great comfort and confidence in her opinions and abilities. Danielle Bellante was equally competent in pulling together the activities on Friday and Saturday nights and the Sunday morning breakfast. Everything was perfect from the decorations and room set-ups to the food, and catering services. Every activity came off without a hitch. At dinner, there were seamless transitions from the hors d’oeuvres to desserts, and it was a real comfort knowing she was there and knowing that everything was taken care of. All of the committee members were able to relax, have fun and not worry about a thing—which we did. We have had nothing but compliments from our fellow classmates, praising the success of the reunion, and we are still receiving thank-you notes, emails, and telephone calls from them. We attribute this success to the expert care and attention from Kim and Danielle. On behalf of Central High School’s Class of 1964, we extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Kim and Danielle for making our 50th reunion such a great success. It was such a pleasure working with both of them. They are truly experts in their fields and are definitely assets to your organization.”

“The wedding coordinator Danielle worked very hard to make our day special. We didn’t hire a wedding planner and all I had to do was give Danielle the contact information for all our other vendors and she took care of everything. I also made all the centerpieces myself and Danielle and her staff put them together and made sure they were ready for the evening. Any special requests we had, including menu changes and guest accommodations, she made them happen. They do offer a food tasting and we thought the food was good. The wedding went off without a hitch and we all had a great weekend!”
- Kimberly Bellan (Bride)

This was our first time staying at the Carousel and it will NOT be our last. We were so pleased and had such a nice time, we will be renting a condo there next year and bringing more family! The staff is very nice and the rooms were very clean and taken care of. There is SO much to do for kids, our 4 year old was thrilled by the indoor ice rink. Good location and right on the beach. Cant wait to go back!
