Quinn Bennion and Megan Carroll- Munoz with the DinoSOAR Service Award for the month of October!

The Hospitality Committee had the pleasure of presenting Quinn Bennion and Megan Carroll- Munoz with the DinoSOAR Service Award for the month of October! Quinn and Megan personally greeted around 6,100 people during a thirteen night run of the Hotel Vernal Haunt. They always greeted people with friendly smiles and took the time to talk with each group about what brought them to the Haunt, made sure to recommend other downtown business they should visit and gave them ideas as to other activities they might want to do if they weren’t from the area. Many a times, Megan led the entire lobby in the ‘Happy Birthday’ song to help someone celebrate their special day. Not only did they provide over the top service to the guests, but also to the 90 + volunteers.
Congratulations, Quinn and Megan!
