First visit to the DOD / Hotel complex !!!Dec
10, 2001 Update
I made my first visit to this facility on Dec 7, 2001. I was invited by CAFA to their Ceremony where Quinsigamond College was added to the membership, and Gov Jane Swift, Olen Bielski (CAFA Director of Business Dev), and Town officials presided. The group then toured the new DOD / Hotel facility and enjoyed lunch in the new facility.
