Jeff is a very personable young man who seems to be devoted to making his
Holiday Inn one of the finest. He has up-graded the restaurant, provides a training

its nightly entertainment - a spot which once caused considerable friction with the
Town* The former lounge area has been converted into a meeting and banquet facility
which will accommodate as many as 200 guests.
There used to be problems with persons who were not guests of the motel, parking

to maintain cordial relations with the Town and the townspeople. He says that he "wants
to work with the Town, not against it."
