Dear Anne, Kathi and Tammy,

Thank you so much for making our special day perfect.

We loved the food, the room was so pretty and even though it was pouring rain and the wind was howling, you still kept the magic alive and made our special day much more memorable.  We will never take for granted your calmness under pressure and willingness to work with us and our budget.

We truly appreciate all that you’ve done for us, and hope that you continue doing such an amazing job so that other couples can enjoy the Hawthorne just as much as we did!

To the Staff of the Hawthorne Country Club,

On September 19th, our daughter, Meagan Sorensen, was married and had her reception there at the Hawthorne.  I feel I must express my appreciation for the quality of service I and my guests received.

From the initial meeting, before we decided upon your facility, to packing up our belongings at the end of the night, we were treated cordially and calmly… a big help during such a hectic time!  Everything our daughter had wanted for that evening was provided, and always with smiles and courtesy.  The room was beautifully decorated.. the balcony couldn’t have been prettier.. the coordinator was patient and understanding…the waitstaff was professional, very helpful and extremely pleasant..and the dinner was excellent!  My husband and I have heard from several of our guests regarding the wonderful atmosphere and cuisine.  We are telling everyone of the memorable experience your staff provided on such as important day.

And because you make everything so perfect, our memories of that important day are nothing but joyous ones.  In this time of cutting corners to make a profit… the Hawthorne Country Club remains a high quality, professional, friendly establishment.  Our thanks to everyone involved!!

Dear Anne,

I cannot thank all of you, Kathi, Tammy and you, as well as the rest of the staff, for making our daughter Courtney’s wedding the “wedding of her dreams”.  Your expertise in planning such an important event, your suggestions and more importantly, your ability to listen to what Courtney and Jeremy wanted and your response of “we can do that” was what makes you at Hawthorne stand out above the rest.

We loved that you made us feel like our event was the only one (and yet we were one of three events that night).  Everything was wonderful – from the food, to the room and the way Tammy was there to make sure all went smoothly.  I cannot speak highly enough of all of you and will always think of Hawthorne when any important event needs to be planned.  Thank you so much for being there for our very special day.

To the Hawthorne Staff,

To all who did such a great job at our wedding, thank you.  Everyone had a great time.

The room looked beautiful and everyone was so very kind and gracious.  Very professional, I felt like I didn’t even know what was going on and didn’t have to because your staff handled everything so well.

To Everyone at Hawthorne,

Dean and I would like to thank all the staff that helped make our reception perfect.  The food was great.  The bartender was efficient, Peter was awesome and Kathi was a lot of fun.  All of you made a stressful planning experience much more pleasant.

Thank you,

Isolina and Dean D.

Dear Kathi,

My family and I were more than pleased with the care and kindness that was taken in preparing the lounge for my daughter’s bridal shower.  It was simple yet so elegant.  There was also positive feedback about how delicious the food was, and your staff did an excellent job.  They were very polite and friendly.  Thank you so very much for making this occasion a memorable time that family and friends can look back at with a joyful smile.

Wishing you happiness always,

Juanita B.

Dear Anne and Ashley,

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for such a great job!  Kaitlin’s shower was fabulous!  You were great to work with, the staff was courteous and the food was great.  All of that and the view was spectacular!!!  Best of luck in the future and I would highly recommend your “new digs”.

Thank you,

Kathy L.

Dear Anne,

Just 24 hours later, we’re still glowing from a magical evening we’ll never forget.  Mike’s party went off like clockwork from the moment we entered the room and that doesn’t happen without a lot of work well before the moment.  Everything was seamless, sparkling and just sensational.  Plus, it was a blast.

We’re so appreciative,

Rachel and Mike

Anne, Pete, Tammy & the Staff of Hawthorne Country Club,

Christopher and I thank you all with every ounce of ourselves for facilitating a beautiful day.  Anne, you never missed a beat (even at the very height of my stress!)  Pete, what a blessing your personal touch was on the room and décor.  Everything you did well exceeded my vision.  Tammy, we were so thankful to have had you there to help us transition from one moment to the next!  All our guests were so pleased with everything, we really could not have asked for more of you all.  Chris and I will forever refer you to everybody we know for any of their function needs!  Thank you so much again; it was truly a pleasure to spend our day at the Hawthorne.

Happy Holidays,

Stephanie and Christopher M.

To the Hawthorne Staff,

Rick and I cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful job done for our wedding 10/17/09.   Our day was perfect and your team only added to our delight.  Thank you again for all the hard work and support when planning our event.  We couldn’t be happier.


Katie B.


Thank you so much for making our day a special one.  Right from the very beginning you were so helpful, friendly, fun and professional in planning our wedding reception.  The day was breathtaking, the service was impeccable and scenery – well no words for it!  Every one of the staff members were easy to work with and did everything with a smile.  It is so nice to have calm people to work with, especially when you’re so stressed out! Ha

Thanks for making our day unforgettable,

Michael and Suzanne R.

Dear Anne,

We would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for making Angela’s wedding day a dream come true.

We can still remember our first consultation with you Anne and how helpful you were through the entire process.  Your suggestions and opinion were truly appreciated.

Sunday evening when we arrived, Peter was there to greet us.  Words cannot express how helpful he was and how he paid attention to every detail.  Everyone told us how delicious the food was and how beautiful everything looked.

Once again, thank you so much.

Hi Kathi, Anne and Pete:

Just a quick note to thank you very much for all you did to

make Saturday night go so smoothly.  You were all great to work with, the room was beautiful with the up-lighting and candles and the

hors d’oeuvres and dinner were delicious.  The staff was very professional.  (Please give a special thank you to Grace who was most accommodating).

We will absolutely consider Hawthorne again for any off-campus events that may come along.

Dear Kathi,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your hospitality in hosting our COM Gas Energy Seminar.  Many of the attendees commented on the quality of accommodations and service.  Many of our vendors noted that they participate in many seminars and that Hawthorne Country Club was one of the best in terms of facilities and service.

Commonwealth Gas is proud of the excellent customer service we provide to our customers.  Kathi and Hawthorne Country Club provided the same excellence as host for our seminar.  We are looking forward to a continued relationship and will recommend your facility to others.

To all of you at Hawthorne,

To Hawthorne Country Club Management and staff:

On behalf of the Greater New Bedford Workforce Investment Board and guests I would like to thank you for the great service and accommodations we received during our Quarterly Board Meeting and Strategy Session held on September 25th.  Your staff allowed such a successful meeting by ensuring that our needs were met thus allowing us to focus on the content and activities relevant to our retreat.  Our room was set up in a way that maximized the use of our audio/visual equipment while allowing our members and guests to access food, drink and restrooms in a way that did not disturb the rest of the group.

The food was well received and available throughout our session. Drinks, especially coffee, were readily available and refreshed in a timely manner.  Numerous attendees commented on the high level of service and your staff’s ability to continuously replenish food and drink without disturbing the ongoing session.  Having participated in numerous sessions and events similar to this occurrence, I can say that it is always a welcome addition when a host site staff can carry out their responsibilities without ongoing instruction and numerous requests for specific needs.

Again, on behalf of the Greater New Bedford workforce Investment Board staff, Board members and guests, I truly thank you for your contribution to our successful event.  We will continue to make use of your facility for similar occasions as well as suggest your facility to others.
