It’s been a special day here at Christmas Place. Early this morning, staff of Christmas Place, The Inn at Christmas Place, and The Partridge & Pear Restaurant gathered at our new fountain for a special dedication.
As you may know, we are a family-owned business. In August this year, we suffered the very untimely death of our president, Keith Biggs. Keith was a very creative and compassionate leader who daily shared with us his vision for the future of the company. He encouraged every one of us to achieve our best, both for the company and personally. We really miss Keith’s presence around here, but share wonderful memories of the too-short time he was with us. More than just a boss, he was our friend.
If you ever visited any of our properties, there is a very good chance you met Keith and he served you without your ever knowing he was our president. Making the spirit of Christmas real for every guest was one of his passions. To commemorate his role in our present success and his inspiration for our future growth as individuals and as a company, staff and his family decided to dedicate our new fountain courtyard to Keith’s memory. The plaque is completed, and it will be mounted to a marble base with a permanent installation by the fountain. We unveiled the plaque this morning, and want to share the message with you.
Keith lived every bit of that dash between his dates, and we feel blessed for having known him.
