Fort Mcdowell - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Heading home now after a free overnight trip at Fort McDowell
Casino, a fantastic casino in every respect along with their
resort hotel, We-Ko-Pa.

Employees so nice and courteous, always with a ready smile,
touching our hearts with their gentle hospitality, loving
the comfortable and friendly atmosphere they so aptly pro-
vide each time we stay there.

Fantastic food, plenty to do, free morning bingo offered, a
pleasant time together, playing, excitement and elation as
we hold our breath in anticipation of our number being
called.

Silver Platter with all their pictures from the past of
movie stars and musicians, looking at them all while eating
our meals.

Café 87, also a wonderful place to eat and talk with our
friends, reasonable prices and daily specials.

Altogether, the Fort is an exceptional Casino, everyone
should stop there and see for themselves how great and
wonderful it really is, while staying at the We-Ko-Pa.

Our senior center provides this opportunity, compliments
of the Fort, our rooms were perfectly suited for a relaxing
and carefree stay at the We-Ko-Pa.

It's staff always so good to us, friendly to a fault, an
excellent quality for a hotel to have, making it pleasant
to stay at, and being good for business too.

Thank you Fort McDowell for making our stay such a fantastic
experience, looking forward to many more visits with all of
you.

    Sounds like you had a great time. For those of us down here in South America, could you explain exactly where Fort McDowell is (what state, near what city, etc.) in case we should ever get the chance to go there?
    Oh, and by the way, did you know that you are mentioned in my poem POETRY HEAVEN?
