Our church's family winter retreat at the George Williams College Conferece Center was a great experience. We returned to GWC after being at another location for a few years. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the hospitality, friendliness and flexability of the staff. The service was excellent and everyone was made to feel quite welcome on campus. There were no exceptions to that experience. What an incredibly staff. In addition, it is a lovely campus, and the renovations in recent years have made it even more so. GWC is a great location and we plan to return next year.

The Bruner family is really appreciative of the kitchen staff.  They have ALWAYS been courteous and helpful over the years; but this year we really felt they went all out for us!  We actually have one vegetarian in our group, and several who are leaning in that direction, and the kitchen staff went out of their way to tell us that if we wanted a vegetarian dish, to just let them know.  So, we appreciated the accommodations of our food preferences. 

AND they really made some delicious desserts for our two Bruner birthday celebrations!  Chocolate cake for Micah (age 4) and strawberry-rhubarb pie for David (age 31). The women among us especially appreciate how unflapped the kitchen staff is by huge numbers of ravenous folks going through the lines, and how untiringly cheerful and gracious they all are. Kudos to them all. Thank you, thank you!

I want to genuinely thank you for all of the additional behind the scenes work you put in to making our trip work as well. Those of you in the Admin Office/Building, and most certainly yourself, are a big part of what keeps us coming back to GWC. Without the type of people that you are, it would just be a place. The East and West Leyden Peer Leader groups have been coming up to your location for at least 20-25 years! What a history!

Thank you so very much for letting One Step stay at George Williams! If it weren't for your generosity, we wouldn't have anywhere to sleep. Thank you so much! We are so thankful for people like you!

Your friends,

The students loved the cabins you arranged and fire pit right by the lake. It was awesome. Thanks again for everything.
