--- As a recent Oregon resident, I met with Cathy recently. She is such a very nice person and very knowledgeable about the area and the businesses. The gifts, coupon, etc. are great! I look forward to visiting the participating businesses. Thank you Cathy!
--- I moved to Oregon in 2017 after living in Lake Mills for over 20 years. I happened to see a posting on the Oregon Community page about a Welcome Lady. People commented about Cathy Grender and how wonderful she was, so I decided to give her a call. I’m so glad that I did! Cathy and I made plans to meet one morning for coffee so that she could give me my welcome bag and she could go over everything in it. Talking with Cathy was like visiting with an old friend. We met at the Firefly (my first time there- definitely not my last) at Cathy’s suggestion. What a great place, and wonderful first impression! She went through the welcome bag with me, and not only were there A LOT of great coupons, gift cards and gift certificates, but she was able to tell me about my options for garages for my car and vets for my dog. Cathy was extremely helpful, and I’m lucky to have met her.
--- When my husband, infant daughter and I moved away from our family and into the Oregon community, we weren’t sure what to expect. After meeting with Cathy, The Welcome Neighbor, we felt we had moved to a wonderful place and were excited to explore everything it had to offer. Oregon is lucky to have The Welcome Neighbor service and even more fortunate to have someone like Cathy as the face of the community. Her smile is contagious!
The Close family:
--- We met with Cathy a few months after moving to Oregon after hearing from numerous people she was such a great resource for newcomers. Our meeting at Oregon’s local coffee shop was informative, fun, and warm-hearted. She is so kind, sweet, and truly knows how to make you feel welcome. Cathy is such a great resource for great local businesses for any and all those necessary things in our everyday lives such as a good car mechanic, restaurants, hair salons, and many others. We would highly recommend meeting with Cathy to anyone new to the Oregon area!
Oregon Hometown Pharmacy:
--- Oregon Hometown Pharmacy has been a customer of Cathy’s for a number of years. She has helped our customer base to grow by sharing her love of Oregon to all the new folks she meets. She shares her knowledge of our hometown pharmacy because she knows we are so much more than the sign on the out side of the building. A number of our customers have shared that they would have never left the chain pharmacy world if Cathy had not shared her own personal experience with quality and caring that we provided our customers. Cathy and Welcome Neighbor is definitely a quality business and one that we will continue to utilize.
Tony Antoniewicz from Pure Integrity Homes Team:
--- Upon starting our Real Estate Team, The Pure Integrity Homes Team, in 2012 we knew that the new residents we assisted in bringing to the Oregon area needed a way to feel comfortable and welcome. The relationship that our Team had created with the new resident needed to be passed along to someone locally that would inform the new resident on all the amenities that Oregon has to offer. We immediately knew that the Welcome Neighbor service that Cathy provides was exactly what we were looking for and we could trust Cathy with continuing the relationship that we had started. We've never been disappointed nor worried and see Cathy's passion to build her service as always what is best for Oregon and the residents. Thank you for your continued support of Oregon businesses and taking such great care of our clients!
