We always try to speak up when we get great service from a local business. Today our museum hosted a tour of over 100 students and teachers from Mexico!! It was a wonderful event, expertly implemented by dedicated staff, volunteers, and docents. And one of the highlights was an amazing lunch provided by Gatherings of Merritt Island. This dynamic catering service provided all-homemade balsamic herbed chicken, macaroni and cheese, dinner rolls, salad (with three homemade dressings), brownies and cookies, plus set-up and tear-down for a very reasonable price. Plus the kids and teachers absolutely loved the meal and kept trying to sneak seconds!! Kudos to Gatherings Event Planning and Catering for their professionalism, flexibility, and flavor. It won't be the last time we use them! And kudos to our volunteers and docents for executing a flawless tour, class and activity for 100 people! If you're local and looking for a great place to send a group -- remember The American Space Museum! If you're looking for a top-notch caterer, remember Gatherings! ... See MoreSee Less
