Dear Mike,
Our thanks to you and your band are long overdue.
You once again gave us a great selection of dances and good guidance and good music. A good time was had by all and I have had many people tell me how much they enjoyed the dancing. It was, as hoped, great for getting everyone involved.  We had a wonderful day all round, and are very appreciative of your part in that.  Thank you.
Until the next time ....
Kindest regards,

— Caroline Mason
