To the Editor:

The 23rd annual Quail Unlimited Banquet was held February 26, 2011 at the Dixie Chopper Business Center. It was a huge success and a very enjoyable evening.

We do, however, sincerely apologize to the Putnam Inn for the error in the banquet program listing them as the dinner caterer. The Dixie Chopper Business Center food service staff was responsible for this catering and we thank them for their efforts.
