Dear Bryant Service Club,
My sincerest thanks for the grand gift which arrived today in excellent condition. It makes me feel great to know that you still remembered me at Christmas time even though many miles separate us.
You are all doing a splendid job in doing all you can for us in the service whatever you do will never be forgotten.
Receiving your gift made me take “time out” to think about my days at Bryant and I do not hesitate to say that Bryant has prepared me to perform my duties in an excellent and efficient manner.
In return for your great generosity may I extend the season’s greetings to a grand Service Club and a great institution.
