Proud of Bridge View Center

Ottumwa Courier

---- — This past weekend, educators from around the state of Iowa and the Northwest Regional Director from Canada attended a convention held at the Bridge View Center.

The women educators were members of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international society that promotes personal and professional growth of women educators and excellence in education.

We found Bridge View Center to be an excellent venue. The inside tables and chairs provided a location to talk and reflect between sessions. The 165 attendees marveled at the view, the outside benches and the lovely river walk. The food was outstanding. The chefs and wait staff provided excellent, friendly service. Larry Gawronski, Aphton and the entire Bridge View staff were easily accessible, helpful and pleasant throughout our three-day convention. Mark Eckman, director of Ottumwa Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, assisted us in showcasing the Ottumwa area.

Our state Delta Kappa Gamma president, Northwest Regional Director and numerous attendees told us the convention site could not have been any better. Ottumwa should be proud of this very special facility. Thank you, Bridge View Center.
