January is a special month for us as everyone recuperates from the Holidays and begins to think about the year ahead. We are making some exciting plans for the year ahead and wanted to share some with you. We have changed our name to reflect our retreat side of our business and are developing new logos, and literature to reflect the change.
We just launched our improved version of our website. Check it out at www.monteagleinn.com and let us know what you think.
Jim and all of the Staff
