with a hearing aid.
Recently, the folks at Portage Valley Hearing, LLC in Pemberville wanted to show their appreciation for their patients’ patronage through the years and they did so with an appreciation dinner held Oct. 14 at the Riverview Banquet Centre in Pemberville.
Nearly 250 invitations went out three weeks ago to current patients. Each invitee was welcome to bring a guest. When the doors opened, Rebecca Krukemyer, audiologist and owner of Portage Valley, greeted the nearly 200 guests, who were then treated to dinner and entertainment by the HoffenHeimer sisters, a musical-comedy duo. Patients also had the chance to win prizes including a large flat-screen television.
Dr. Krukemyer thanked the guests for their attendance and most importantly for their patronage.
“Some people like what they do for a living,” Dr. Krukemyer said. “I love what I do for a living. Yet without these people, I couldn’t do it. I am truly blessed, and this is my way of saying thank you.”
The dinner was the second that Portage Valley hosted in less than a month. More than 200 people attended a dinner three weeks earlier.
