Honors Employees during 5th Anniversary Celebration
GENEVA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ohio (September 15, 2009) — The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake continued to celebrate its fifth anniversary with a record-breaking August. The Lodge, which opened its new ourdoor Terrace Grill this summer saw a 13-percent increase in overall operating profit this month. Food and beverage sales increased by 31 percent while retail sales grew 2 percent.

“We are ecstatic that in the current economic climate, The Lodge was able to achieve a record breaking month this August and have its best month ever since opening in 2004. This continues to reinforce our belief that the investments made by the county such as an outdoor pool and outdoor dining terrace help The Lodge attract new guests and give past guests a reason to return,” said General Manager Jeannette Petrolia.

“I am encouraged that The Lodge will continue to be a catalyst for growth of the hospitality industry in the county and Northeast Ohio," said Petrolia.

In honor of this achievement, The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake recently recognized 14 associates who have been with The Lodge since it opened in 2004. A special celebratory luncheon with State Representative Debbie Newcomb was held in their honor at The Lodge on Sept. 1.

Associates who were recognized for their five years of service include: Jim Brainard, Geri Chappel, Kellie Emmett, Darla Greene, Phil Grof, Charlene Horgan, Sandy King, Kim Nagle, Eric Ogrodnichek, Joanne Parada, Kimberly Patrone, Kim Petrowski, Austin Stouder and Scott Williams. The Lodge is committed to providing employment opportunities for local residents, and is proud that 12 of the 14 honored associates are Ashtabula County residents.
