5 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Retreat Venue

Posted by Jack Shitama on Thu, Feb 26, 2015 @ 12:02 PM

I’m not a meeting planner, but I’ve been involved with planning dozens of events from as small as a few people to as many as 350. I’ve also served as director of a hospitality operation for 15 years. I've learned that planning a successful event goes far beyond finding a location that fits your budget.

These five questions will help you get the kind of impact you are looking for.

Posted by Megan Shitama Weston on Mon, Dec 17, 2012 @ 12:12 PM

When I was in college one of my roommates taught me to crochet, but I lacked the motivation to work beyond a thin strip of crocheting - until I learned that one of my friends, who was pregnant, was experiencing contractions too early in her pregnancy and had been admitted to the hospital.

Camp Craft: Nature Photo Frame

Posted by Megan Shitama Weston on Mon, Dec 10, 2012 @ 13:12 PM

Arts & Crafts time is always a highlight during our “School’s Out, We’re In!” (aka “SOWI”) program here at Pecometh. While we’ve done several different projects over the year, one of my favorites was creating a photo frame using a combination of ornamental bits and pieces we provided and an assortment of things the campers found on a nature scavenger hunt! This craft would be a great way to entertain kids when they're off school, or it could even be adapted as a way to create a keepsake on a family vacation.

Auction Dinner Update - and Autumn Recipes!

Posted by Megan Shitama Weston on Wed, Oct 17, 2012 @ 16:10 PM

We had a great time at our Auction Dinner on Sunday! We were blessed with a beautiful fall day, a fantastic turnout, and we raised over $12,000 to support our ministries.  The Riverview Retreat Center was filled with many of our faithful supporters… gathering by the fireplace… getting competitive over the Silent and Live Auctions… and enjoying the food! In fact, so many people raved over Chef Chris’ autumnal menu that we had to share a couple recipes.  Who knew that a spinach salad could be so inspired?  And while more than a few people raised their eyebrows at the sight of brussel sprouts with dinner, once people tried Chef Chris’ grilled brussel sprouts with bacon we saw more clean plates than raised eyebrows.  Whether or not you were here to enjoy the food this weekend, we hope you’ll enjoy these yummy fall recipes!
