The Food Was Great,
And It Was An Inside Job
ISA 'N DATA ... It was
such a lively party
that guests at the re-
shindig by Best Western Execu-
tive Hotel & Suites, 12 Mile just
west of Orchard Lake Road (the
former Clarion Hotel), were
greeted with cheers and hand-
clapping by staff members as
they walked down the aisle into
the fun-festing party room.
Tinsel all over in a Hollywood
motif ... Balloons, three-piece jazz
band (when it wasn't playing
jumpin' standards), prizes, food
and drinks galore, three carica-
Five interesting food stations
... pasta, shrimp and seafood,
roast beef and turkey carving,
hors d'oeuvres with chicken and
beef brochettes, wine and cheese
and lavish dessert table.
One gal asked another, "I won-
der who catered this tonight?" ...
and was shocked when informed
that Best Western had done the
entire party itself ... That's how
good everything was.
Also a birthday cake for Best
Western, which is celebrating its
50th year ... starting out a half-
century ago in California and
growing from a small lodging
chain into the biggie of today,
spread throughout North Amer-
ica, South America, Europe, Asia,
Africa, the Middle East and
South Pacific, with 282,000 guest
rooms in 62 countries.
Thanks to local guys 'n gals
like Bruce Bussey, general man-
ager; Marlene Asselin, director
of sales; Elizabeth Nolan, food
and beverage director; Laura
Nickel, catering director, and a
host of others, the new Best
Western Executive Hotel &
Suites is getting much acclaim.
It is operated here by Trans land Community College on Or-
Inns Management with fine folks chard Lake Road, just south of 12
