 A note of thanks from a Co-Owner

John Simon recently shared with us how much he appreciated the courtesies and fine service from the Private Dining Room Staff at the Resort's Lincoln Restaurant where a dinner was held last month in honor of J. Stephen Simon who passed away in September. Steve served as legal counsel for the Board of Directors and cherished his many friendships with the members of the Camelback community. John and his sister Libby were most grateful for the opportunity to celebrate their dad's life at a place that was very special to Steve - Camelback Inn.
