Long-time friends of Pretty Lake Camp, Disability Network Southwest Michigan, returned to Pretty Lake for their annual holiday celebration this month! The organization rented the Retreat Centre for four hours over lunch and requested that Chef Jai prepare her amazing Pretty Lake Paella from the catering menu, in addition to a salad bar! The Paella is a great option for groups who have many different dietary needs because it is free of the most common allergens and it accommodates both meat and vegan diets alike. We provided coffee and tea, while they brought in their own cold beverages to go with lunch.

Disability Network also requested the use of our wireless PA system, which is the best way to assure that everyone is audible and is able to be heard during an event. Using a microphone system like ours, with four handheld mics and the option for two additional head-set or lapel microphones, is one way to make sure that information at your event is accessible to all who are in attendance. We also provided a custom room set up to make sure that folks had plenty of space to move about Retreat Centre comfortably.

After coordinating a previous retreat with us, Disability Network HR & Program Director Mona Khaled said this about their experience with us: “The Pretty Lake staff member responsible for hospitality, Paul, coordinated all details for the event perfectly and accommodated last-minute requests in such a kind way, ensuring that all details were in place to make it a wonderful day for all. The room was set up beautifully. Of course, the gorgeous view of nature and the ability to go outside for small group work and breaks was amazing.” Read Mona’s full review here.

We are so grateful to be able to continue to serve Disability Network Southwest Michigan in an accessible way that keeps them coming back, and we’re looking forward to doing so again!
