Dear Jay & Staff,

Thank you for sharing in our special day and making it just perfectly wonderful. You have done a wonderful job and have such a lovely site.

Thank you again,

The McHale's


Now that life is getting back to normal, Audrey and I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for making our wedding a very special affair.

You and the staff at the Crystal Rose did a first rate job in making every part of our day "Perfect". Everything from the decorations to the food and service were top notch. The best part of the day was not having to worry about anything.

Your managerial abilities in running the Crystal Rose are only overshadowed by your talents as a wedding coordinator. Your thoroughness and ability to stay calm in "all" situations put both Audrey and I at ease during our final preparations.

Additionally, we received numerous compliments from our guests on both the facility and the reception. This only serves as a testament to the job that you had done for us.

Please feel free to use the both of us as a reference in the future. We would have no other choice but to enthusiastically recommend anyone getting married to utilize both you and the Crystal Rose.

Thank You Again,

Audrey and Jay Charness

Dear Jay,

This letter is to thank you for helping me organize the "Casino Night" party that was held at Red Rocks Country Club on September 19th. Everyone I talked to with your company was most efficient, very nice, organized and very helpful.

The two gentlemen that set up the tables were great answering all my questions and then helping me distribute the prizes. We had so many comments how nice and congenial the dealers were and how much more fun it was than gambling in Las Vegas.

Jay, we will be having more parties like this one in the future, and look forward to working with you again.

To the Crystal Rose and Darren,

Had to let you know what an amazing job you all did on our wedding day. We were so pleased with everything, and especially you Darren. You were so friendly and accommodating. You took away any nerves or concerns we had about anything which really means a lot on your wedding day. We can't thank you enough for all your help, and truly feel that we made a new friend on our special day. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone who would like a very friendly and professional wedding. Things couldn't have gone any better.

Thanks Again,

Dear Darren and Staff,

Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for your superb service and endless patience. All of you created a flawless, wonderful evening and memory that we can now look back on fondly. Each and every one of our guests complemented us on how gracious, thoughtful, and attention-driven our wedding planner and staff were. For everything, we are extremely grateful and humbled.

Hello Darren:

I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude for your planning expertise! Brian and I truly enjoyed ourselves and had a phenomenal wedding experience (on August 5). You displayed such professionalism and poise during our event. Thank you!! The feedback we received from our guests was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed the ceremony and loved the food!

I recently received an email from some relatives that attended the ceremony. My new Uncle, Jerry O'Neil. from Connecticut. He would like to get the email of the DJ, if possible. He was quite impressed with him and wanted to contact him with some music questions. Sorry, but for the life of me, I cannot remember the DJ's name. Anyhow, if the DJ remembers our wedding, Jerry was the guest who sang New York, New York". The DJ was kind enough to play the 'karaoke' music for it. We would appreciate his email address, if that does not violate any rules.

Thank you, again,

Lana (Burns) O'Neil

To: Darren Ward

Darren, Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding day so special! I don't think it could have gone any better :)

Dear Brian,

In all the years and all the parties I have had and been to, this was the very best. Everyone had a wonderful time. The place is beautiful and clean. The whole staff was wonderful and fun. The food was extra great and the staff who worked the Blackjack tables upstairs made sure everyone had fun.

You, Brian, made it all happen. Your personality and attitude set the mood and you helped me stay calm. Even though everyone was late due to the Bronco's playoff game, you stalled dinner with no complaints.

Thank you Brian and all of the Crystal Rose staff for making our party so much fun and something we will all remember. The staff at Mademoiselle wants to have their Christmas party there from now on. There is no substitute for the best. So you will see us in the year 2000.

Thank You,

Dear Brian:

The wedding was beautiful and everything went well without a glitch!

It was a pleasure working with you and your staff in planning and hosting Doug and Shannon's wedding on Saturday, February 7, 1999. It's so good to know that we can have a quality celebration at an affordable price.

The food was delicious, with nothing but raving remarks about the Champagne that was served.

Thank you again for all of your hard work and expertise. Best wishes to you, it was a privilege doing business with you.

Hi Jay,

Thank you for the playing cards you sent me. Our class reunion at the Crystal Rose was a huge success and everyone had a great time. Darren and his staff did a fantastic job, and the food was wonderful.

So, thank you to you and your staff for making it such a memorable event for all of us. Everyone wants to have the next one there!

Have a very Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience we had with our wedding at the Crystal Rose.

The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was impeccable and the food was wonderful. Everyone was extremely pleasant and accommodated us in every possible way. The guests are still commenting on what a "really great time" they had. I congratulate you for developing such a "great place" for special occasions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Thanks again - you made my daughter's special day a really wonderful memory.


Carmen Seiwell

Dear Crystal Rose Employees;

Give yourselves a big round of applause for the excellent job you did for the wedding reception for Pamela and Anthony. Jay, thanks for all of your patience with the 1001 phone calls you took care of. Chap, Debbie and Barney you guys are great, you really went out of your way to see that all of the guests were having a good time. A special thanks to Chap from Anthony Lee the young man who lost his daily planner (by the way he found it with everything still inside.) Jay with people like this working for you no wonder the Crystal Rose is a huge success. Thanks again!!!


Sharen Hartsfield

Dear Jay,

I'm sorry I didn't send this sooner, but I was still recovering from the wedding stuff. I really wanted to tell you what a wonderful staff you have and to thank everyone for making our wedding the perfect day for us. Cheena was really great. It didn't matter if I called her 3 or 4 times in the same day, she was pleasant and helpful each time. She really made me feel that everything was organized and well taken care of. Chap was super at the wedding. He stayed right up until the end with us even though he must have been dead tired. A real professional. Debbie and Barnie couldn't have been more efficient behind the bar. I never saw a line of people waiting for drinks and Barnie had to make something like 35 shots for last call. We had several comments on how great the food and service was. I think the girl's name was Rene who was so considerate and right on top of things as far as serving the cake and boxing things up for us. Please let everyone know that their hard work didn't go unnoticed. I will definitely recommend the Crystal Rose to my friends.

Thanks again,

Jim and Julie

Dear Jay & Crystal Rose Staff,

We want to thank you for the outstanding job you did at our wedding on June 21st. You guys did a superb job- your professionalism truly showed and everyone noticed! The food was wonderful - the setting perfect.

I still can't get over how perfect everything was, but it was. Through all of your efforts and hard work. Many people complimented you and your staff and the fine job you all did.

When we look back on this day, we will always remember how beautiful it was because of your attention to detail, and we just want to express our gratitude to you! Thank you so much!


Bradley & Wendy Keller


Thank you for everything, you were so great! Our wedding turned out beautiful and we have you to thank for it. Dwight and I had so much fun, like you told us to! You did such a wonderful job, we have got so many compliments on the Crystal Rose, the food, you, everything! We can't thank you enough for making our day extra special.


Dwight & Angela Lenox

Dear Mr. Byerly,

Please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation for the wonderful accommodations you provided for our 20 year high school reunion. We heard wonderful comments regarding your facilities and staff. Compared to the ten year celebration, you made the committee's job so much easier. Our classmates were very satisfied with the evening, and the casino was a huge success! We had many people ask if we would plan our 30 year reunion at the Crystal Rose. I only hope that you are still available in ten years.

Gratefully yours,

Toni Strecker

Dear Jay:

We had our annual Spring Fling party at your Hampden site on Saturday night. I just wanted you to know how pleased we were with not only the site, but also the food, table decorations and ALL your employees. The DJ, Wayne, was very nice and accommodating, playing great music and encouraging everyone to dance. Joe did an excellent job managing the evening. He was extremely helpful to me. Due to his attention to detail he helped make the party a success. A good time was had by all!

We will be in contact with you when we decide to plan our next party!


Judy Bently, R.N.
Director of Nursing

Dear Jay,

Please accept a most sincere thanks from me and the entire reunion committee for a job well done last Saturday.

The food was very good - - the staff service was terrific - - and the service provided by you and Brian was just great!

During the course of the evening many of the attendees informed me that they couldn't decide on whether to attend the function but were really glad they did as they had such a great time. Several people commented to me that they never heard of the Crystal Rose nor knew anything about the Crystal Rose until our reunion.

On a scale of 1 to 10, our committee rated your facility a solid 10! Please inform your staff of our praise.

Warmest personal regards,

Howard J. Leino, GRI

Dear Mr. Byerly:

I wanted to express our extreme satisfaction with your services at the Kerr-McGee holiday party. I don't believe the employees have ever experienced an evening quite as enjoyable at prior employee functions. In fact, by popular vote, we have scheduled the same theme for next year. I would like to know if you would be interested in providing the casino games for that event? We would also like to have Greg Rice back as our Disc Jockey for the evening. Again, my sincere thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful evening and I look forward to hearing from you.

Very Truly Yours,

Jeannie O'Neil
Planning Supervisor

Dear Jay:

We wanted to let you know that the evenings you have produced for our company have been received with more response and enthusiasm than any party/meeting that we have had in many a year.

Your entire staff is very congenial and the service is tops. The food selections are just great for a large group. Very tasty and nicely presented.

Your "Casino Night" is a super way to get everyone involved. First time gamblers have more fun than they thought possible and those who "know the ropes" have a great time playing for "high stakes". All in all everyone has a super time and we get many requests to do it again.

You can depend on us to book your services in the future.


Russ Lynn

Dear Jay,

Our Volunteer Recognition dinner was a great success largely because of the terrific service and delicious dinner, and the beautiful setting that the Crystal Rose provided.

The office has received several calls and notes from our volunteers, thanking us for this special evening. I am sure that we will again plan next year's event with the Crystal Rose.

Wishing you continued success!


Judy Page
Executive Director

Dear Jay:

We had such a good time at your Lookout Mountain facility last night. We want to thank you and the staff for a very special treatment that we feel our guests and ourselves received.

Sandy and Michelle were certainly prepared and made every effort to help us have a great event. The facilities were excellent, the food was very good and the entire staff went "out of their way" to make our guests comfortable.

I believe you may very likely get some additional business because of favorable impressions made.

Thanks again for helping make our Prison Fellowship Volunteer get together a definite success.


Forrest Hubers
Prison Fellowship

Dear Jay:

On behalf of the 1970 Graduating Class from Lakewood High School, I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff and particularly Judy Page for our successful 40's party which took place at the Robin's Nest, August 1, 1992. I apologize for not thanking you personally for extending the use of your facility an additional hour during that particular event.

We will keep your establishment in mind for any future events and I will be more than happy to suggest your business to others who might be planning some type of party or event.

Sincerely yours,

...Crystal Rose Staff--

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for hosting a wonderful party! Everyone mentioned it was the best event in years. We Look forward to having you entertain us again. The Death for Dinner Crew was brilliant! Thank you again Crystal Rose.

Dear Jay:

I had to drop you a few lines to let you know what a wonderful success our Volunteer Recognition Dinner was last week. Since I was responsible for organizing the event, many of the volunteers came to me with their praises for the job well done by your people.

The service was terrific. Everything was taken care of in a timely fashion without it ever feeling like any servers were hovering. The wait staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. I couldn't have asked for any better service than we received. I also received many happy comments about the food; everyone was pleased.

Jay, the evening could not have been possible without the generosity of the Crystal Rose. We all had a great evening; it was thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you for the support you've shown some of your community's finest volunteers. Please pass our thanks along to your wonderful staff.

Attention: Jay Byerly

We would like to thank you for hosting our annual employee Christmas party.

Your cooperation and flexibility in helping us establish a date, menu and price are appreciated. It was nice to be able to call one person and have all the details taken care of in such a professional manner.

Our employee comments concerning your food have all been positive. Apparently you have the best mashed potatoes around!

Thank you for going above and beyond what was required.

Dear Jay:

I'm writing to express my pleasure at the service and quality of food provided to my recent program at the Jefferson County Nature Center.

We just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you and your whole staff for just a wonderful evening at The Crystal Rose. You were a big part in making our 10th Anniversary Convention a huge success. Please thank Debby and her husband personally for arranging and supervising the whole evening whereby everything went off without a flaw. Also thank Darren Ward for taking care of our last minute needs.

The accommodations, the food, and the service were just marvelous. Every person from the bartender, wait-staff, chef, dealers, disc jockey were great. And of course, the Casino Night Theme was what really got the people going. Thanks a lot for talking me into trying your theme party idea. It was a big hit.

Bill & Pat Guerin

Dear Jay,

Thank you for the great job with the Ball Corporation holiday party in late December. The client was extremely pleased with the Crystal Rose and we at the Sheraton Denver West felt the same.

We will continue to use Crystal Rose and give referrals to you whenever possible. Your service is always wonderful and your staff is delightful. We hope that you will continue to refer clients our way also, and we can continue to uphold our networking relationship.

Please don't hesitate to call if you need anything and we will do the same. We are here to serve and greatly look forward to working with you in the future.


Carol Zeilger

Dear Jay,

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed Casino Night at the Crystal Rose, during our 1998 Tradebank International Convention. When David Prinster first mentioned to me the idea of Casino Night, I wasn't quite sure. But after experiencing it first hand, I would recommend it to anyone. You and your staff are to be commended for the top quality service you provided to our group. I heard many people say that Casino Night helped make our Convention the best function Tradebank has ever had. The food was fantastic and your dealers were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Again, thank you for a wonderful evening and if ever I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call on me.

You can depend on us to book your services in the future.
