North Bend Medical Center Holiday Party, 2010

Dear Lucinda:

We cannot thank you enough for everything you personally did to ensure the success of the recent holiday party for North Bend Medical Center physicians, staff and guests held in the Salmon rooms at the Mill Casino and Hotel this past weekend.

Your unfailing professionalism, attention to detail, and positive can-do attitude as well as your willingness to "go the extra mile" made it a joy to work with you over the past few months planning this event.

Again, thank you.

Traylor~Martin Wedding Reception

Everything was just perfect! The room was beautiful. It was tight with everyone in there, but I think it worked out just fine. The staff was very friendly and very helpful and I think everyone had a great time. Many positive comments on the food. It was really excellent.

Thank you again for all of your help and putting up with our anxiousness. I would definately recommend The Mill for a wedding reception venue.


Paynes Reception

Thank you so much! I loved the reception, it was beautiful and the cake was exactly how I wanted it! Mine and Jason's family had nothing but great things to say about the reception!


Coquille Class of 1970 Reunion

So nice to meet you Saturday night, Nicole. I would like to express how very pleased we were with everything. The dinner was fabulous, the service was way beyond good...really the best ever. The head person (the one we paid), sorry I cannot remember her name.... I can't say enough good things about her and her crew. Felt like I had made new friends by the time the party wrapped up. All the little extra things that The Mill did was so appreciated and made our event very special. Please extend my gratitude to Sue also, she was a huge help and kept it all together for us.

Bless you all,
Kaye and the Coquille class of 1970.

Leslie Traylor Birthday Party

Hi Nichole-

I was going to thank you today for such a wonderful event. The room was perfect, the bartender was great, and Cecelia took excellent care of us. I think Lesli had a great time and so did all of our guests.

I would not hesitate to plan and have an event again at the Casino, as we were very pleased!
Thanks to you, and Amy for making sure everything went so smoothly for us.

Take care!

Coquille Chamber of Commerce

Lucinda, Amy & Staff in the Catering Department:

On behalf of the Coquille Chamber of Commerce, I would like to sincerely THANK YOU for the beautiful cake, donated for the Annual Chamber Awards Evening & Chocolate Fantasy/Fiesta! This was quite a creation, but I have seen & tasted your creations many times. This was for our Chamber Evening so it was really special.
You received all the praise not only from the chamber attendees, but we saved the top creation showing it to all the seniors, who attend the Monday lunch program in the Community Center. Little by little, with everyone having a "little" taste, our beautiful chocolate flower has disappeared! But, I have pictures and enclosed a couple for your files.

Again, A big Thank you,

Fran Capehart, Chairman & Chamber Board Member

Thank You


Thank you for your outstanding support of our APAC last week. Everyone at The Mill Casino treated us very special and we will return in the future. The upgrade to room #761 made our hospitality room a hit.

Thank you again,
Bob Elliott

Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters

Dear Lucinda,

I want to thank you and your entire hotel staff for your efforts in making our stay at your facility August 6-8, 2010 such a positive experience. It was refreshing to see "everyone" so involved in making sure our conference was successful.

Of course you in particular, went above and beyond, from accommodating last minute requests, to insuring the timeliness of A/V set up, to assisting with banquets during our Friday night event; none of which went unnoticed or unappreciated. You exemplify the concept of a team effort.

You were organized, accommodating, and on top of even the smallest of details. Meeting rooms were ready and situated according to our requests. It all made my job easier.

Although it is difficult logistically for our 5-state group to make the trip to Coos Bay, if not for that factor I can assure you we would return soon.

On behalf of the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters, I want to thank you again for making our stay a memorable delight.

Thank you Sue,
Everything went very, very well!!!! We had a great time!!! I can't thank you all enough. The wait staff was fantastic, the food was out of this world and if we don't all gain at least five pounds from devouring what's left of that delicious cake it will be a miracle! I will be in to share some photos with you soon.
Thanks again,
Michelle and Vince


Hi Lucinda,

Gloria and I would like to thank both you and Nichole for arranging our generous stay at the Mill.

We were both blown away by the quality of the property, it's location, the sights and smells of the setting and bountiful buffet.

Your conference rooms are really versatile and it looks as though you can accommodate a large range of group sizes and needs.

I will be sure to recommend you to all meeting and event planners looking for a coastal option and hope you can stop by DirtFish on your next visit to Seattle.

Best Regards,

Doc and Gloria Doolittle


Amy & Nichole.
The evening has ended and the reunion has been a success!
The banquet area was just beautiful. Everything was arranged and on time!
Thank you so much for the special chair for one of our classmates. It really helped her.
I appreciate your patience and the excellent job you did for us!
Hugs to you both-

Davis-Polanco~Thornsberry Wedding


We can’t say enough how impressed we were with every facet of our wedding reception at The Mill Casino. Despite our continued procrastination and last minute changes you were able to help us pull off a memorable wedding reception. The devil is in the details and boy did you get those details correct! I was forced to look up the word “superlative” in a thesaurus to find the proper words to describe our experience with you personally and with the Mill Casino concerning our event. From your continued communication and support to the impeccable service we received before, during, and after the reception we give you our deepest thanks and appreciation. The food was fantastic, the drinks were excellent, the cake was perfect, and the service was magnificent! Rest assured we will act as future sales agents for you and never miss a chance to cheerlead for the Mill whenever any of our family, friends, or passersby happen to mention an upcoming event!

Thanks again for making this wonderful day for us so very special!

Woods~Kusilek Wedding Reception


We want to thank you for the wonderful job you did as events coordinator at the wedding reception of our daughter Amy and Patrick Kusilek on August 19th.
Getting into the reception room early to decorate was important to us and you really came through on that!
We also appreciated the attention to details such as the timeline for the evening which worked perfectly.

Arzie~Ledesma Bridal Shower

Hi Sue, home late last night from a week of camping in Oregon along the Coquille River with my brother and family, had a wonderful time!

I can't thank you enough for everything, the cake was amazing and Cecilia really took care of us with the set up of the napkins and the food, which was super yummy.
Everyone had a great time, thank you. I'm sure you will be seeing us again next year sometime when its time to plan for the baby shower.

take care

It was nice to meet you on the night of the North Bend High School 50th year reunion. I wanted to be sure to thank you and The Mill staff for being so accommodating and friendly. You helped make the reunion a very special night for many people. I was impressed that you actually were there to make sure everything was ready. Thanks.

I also want to say what a privilege it was to work with you over the last 2 years in helping with the planning and the final production. I look forward to working with you and the staff next time, whenever that may be. Please let all of your staff know how much they were appreciated.

Just a note of t hanks for all your help on our recent trip to North Bend.

The Seafood Buffet on Friday night was fantastic.

We checked out of our motel Saturday and returned to the Casino. It was a beautiful day. We all enjoyed the canoe races, Indian dancing and drumming and then a very good lunch at the Plank House.

Thanks again and hope to visit again soon.

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hospitality, both during and after the event. The presentation went great, everyone enjoyed the food as well as the venue. Kathy and her staff helping last night were fantastic; they made sure everyone was happy and had what they needed. The evening beyond the event was great as well. The room was very
Comfortable and had a great view. I wanted to thank you for the bottle of champagne; it was perfect to help wind down the night.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Sue -

Thank you for the email - and thank you for all of your help planning our big day. The wedding week was a huge success. Evan and I (Mr and Mrs Amanda Hanlon (hee hee!)) are so happy with everything the Mill did for us. We can't thank you enough.

Thank you for the pictures of the very delicious cake, and don't worry about the scissors or string. We considered those lost :)

Thanks again, and happy holidays to you too.


Illinois Valley Senior Center

Dear Mr. Close,

Sometimes it is approprioate to mention to management a certain atmosphere that surrounds guests at your property. This happened to 35 of us on the 6th-7th of December when we bussed up to see Shore Acres and enjoy your facility.
It is hard to believe that we used so much of the property in such a short time but from the gift shop to the Plank House and on the floor of the casino, the staff was absolutely incredible. Lalita, who works in the casino was better than anyone I have ever encountered in her position. She actually came up to us and offered us the EXACT drinks we had previously she remembered, we will never know. She is quite the asset!
Your hotel staff was courteous and worked well under pressure. Always smiling. I ordered 4 mini cakes to bring home while eating dinner and as promised, they were ready by noon the day of departure. They were beautifully done and delivered with that, by now, famous Mill Casino smile. Is there training for that?
From developing thr group to the cookies and cider, Sue Karolyi was so professional and on her days off, Nichole took right over knowing exactly what our needs were. As the group leader I was so impressed with the entire operation. The harmony created by the consistency in the vision that upper management has created here is admirable.
Thank you for an enjoyable stay. Please pass our kudos on to everyone we encountered. It was such a pleasure to stay with you.

MPI Board

Dear Lucinda and Sue:

Thank you both so very much for your excellent and superb hospitality during our recent MPI Board of Directors Retreat: Sunday, May 20 – Tuesday, May 22, 2012. You and your team at the Mill Casino Hotel and RV Park did an amazing job! The rooms are great, the food was FABULOUS and your staff were so gracious!

I have spread the word to other colleagues about the excellent experience. I, myself plan international meetings – and seldom do meetings in Oregon, but you can be sure – I will recommend you to any colleagues in a heartbeat!

My husband and I do have an RV, and we will stop by this summer for sure!

Thank you so much again,

Hi Amy:

Just a few words to describe your banquet staff’s performance at last week’s luncheon…

Never before in the 12 years I’ve been doing this event have we ever had as incredible (and unexpected) a turnout as the one we had last Friday. And Cecelia and her crew stepped up to the plate and did an incredible job making sure that we had sufficient place settings and food to feed the additional people that showed up unexpectedly.

Thank you for your assistance in making this event so successful!
