Lilac City is alluring

The purpose of this letter is to express gratitude to the people of Spokane. I am the Hawaii director for Cardon Outreach, and I occasionally travel to Spokane, where many of our corporate offices are located.

When my team visits Spokane, we always leave talking about the possibility of someday having a home in Spokane. Although both Hawaii and Spokane are beautiful places, the criteria that cause us to dream of a home in the Inland Empire is one we feel extremely qualified to gauge, and that is Aloha.

My team and I look forward to coming to Spokane because we genuinely like the people there. While I am sure I’m not the first to feel this way, I felt compelled to write and thank you for another fabulous visit to the Lilac City.
