Back in June, 2008, we had set up a great private party for
swingers. The plan was to have it at a local bar, the owner was going
to close it for just our group. Lots of us had plans on eating dinner
at the fine-dining restaurant above the bar, and many had rooms
reserved in the hotel. The owner knew what type of group we were, and
had no problems in having us.
Shortly before the party, the local Borough Council President

The NCSF Incident Response team found out what had happened,
contacted the local paper and helped them understand what we were
trying to do, and how this affects us. My husband and I (as the party

our behalf, and for that, we are so thankful to them! Thanks again you
guys! You're wonderful!
