A belated Valentine wish, apology
Letter to the Editor
In response to Michael Fairchild's letter in Wednesday's Viewpoint, the McCandless Hall Council Executive Board would like to clarify the situation that occurred.
On Valentine's Day, many bouquets were delivered to McCandless Hall including one particular arrangement with no last name on the card. Other than "Mc," the place of delivery was not legible. Our desk workers called the florist and it was discovered that the flowers were supposed to be sent to McGlinn Hall instead of McCandless. The florist said they would take care of it by delivering a new floral arrangement to McGlinn.
A miscommunication occurred between the florist and the delivery man. The delivery man arrived at McCandless with the assumption he was to pick up the flowers and redeliver them. However, by this time, the flowers had been given out to a few residents under the belief that they were now unclaimed. The delivery man went on to inaccurately inform Michael Fairchild that residents at McCandless had dispersed the flowers without investigating the order.
The McCandless Hall Executive Board would like to apologize for the miscommunication between all parties and especially to Michael and his girlfriend for this unfortunate incident. We would also like to apologize to the women of Saint Mary's and specifically to McCandless Hall for the unsettling situation. We pride ourselves in our reputation as honest women of integrity and will continue to uphold that tradition.
McCandless Hall Executive Board
