WOW….Jeff, we are still reeling from the overwhelming success of our first Back to School Bash. Originally, we had thought we might get 800-1,000 students/families but as you well know, we had over 4,000 people attend. The Whitsons’ crew did an outstanding job in feeding and anticipating the never ending crowd. You were more than prepared with the food and it just kept coming. Please extend our thanks to your crew who worked non-stop for more than three hours…I know they had to be exhausted. Your two refrigerated trucks had ample backup for the crowd that attended and the two serving areas at either end of the event kept the crowd dispersed throughout the designated area. This has to go down as one of the bigger events in the community.

Jeff, you and the Whitsons Group are truly an asset to the New Britain School District and to the city. Prior to this event, you just came off preparing all of the meals for several days at the football camp. And then yesterday, at the city’s celebration at being named an All American City, I kidded with you that it must be nice to attend an event where someone else prepared the food, only to have you tell me that Whitsons catered the city event. Whitsons is truly a gem for not only the school district, but for the city.

Please forward this email to your corporate headquarters. I am sure they know of the quality work you and your staff do, but I want them to know that you are a valued partner both within the school district and the city as well.

Best regards,


Paul G. Salina
Chief Operations Officer
New Britain School District
