“The Groovy Gig was so much fun - the ‘70s food was a hit, the facility was perfectly set up and we enjoyed a great evening! The Trusted Choice Honors was another successful event. from the start of the reception - the elegant food, attentive service, the auditorium - to the end of the evening, our attendees were treated to a wonderful experience! You make it look easy... Your combined efforts create a wonderful experience for all that attend. I know that working with Scheman will be positive for me, low-stress... You are helpful with advice and suggestions so that choices/decisions may be easily made.” - Joyce Johnson, Human Resources, Employee Relations for McFarland Clinic
