 Terri Watson and her staff are the best at meeting your needs. We recently needed a place and they exceeded what we wanted with very little notice. If you have an upcoming event give her a call, you will not be disappointed.

Dear Terri,

We were grateful for the use of your facility for the repast following the funeral service for our Mother, Eleanor Warren on November 9, 2017. We appreciate your professional courtesy. We received many positive compliments about your facility and the convenience of the location.

We were pleased with the service that we received from you and your staff and we will highly recommend Gateway Event Center to other family members and friends.

Thanks again for everything.
