Our newsletter, the Reporter has been around for over 40 years and we recently updated the look! Check it out by clicking HERE and let us know what you think.
In the current issue, Chris Ruttger updated everyone on what’s new around the resort. We also wanted to share that with you here.
We have learned from previous generations the importance of reinvesting in the resort, and one of the Reporter’s functions is to let you know what is new each year. As always, we have been busy over the winter. Public restrooms have been improved, the elevator lobbies have been redone, many guest rooms and hallways have been repainted, and many more projects to repair, recarpet, reupholster and otherwise upgrade facilities are complete or nearing completion. The Garage, Auntie M’s and the Fine Line are getting ready for exterior paint jobs. A spring project is to remodel several of the cabin bathrooms. Our crew is working with a local cabinetmaker, and they plan to tackle some of them each spring. There are also improvements to the golf courses, marina equipment including a bigger and better ski boat, and some behind-the-scenes improvements.
Another regular Reporter function is to let you know what’s new with our staff. Most of the familiar folks are here to take care of you again. Last year’s new additions, Golf Professional Dave Sadlowsky and Pastry Chef Sam Shaw, had very successful first seasons, and we’re excited to have them. In this issue, you will read about new Director of Sales Rene Ashmore. She has a strong background in group events and is a great addition to the staff of professionals who cater to organizations holding meetings and events with us. Be sure to check ruttgers.com regularly, and sign up to receive email updates and news.
