We live in the Vintage Co-op in Ames Iowa and the staff at Independence Village have made 3 meals for us. They are truly ambassadors for their facility. Even with Covid they served a beautiful Valentine, St. Pats and last night a Luau. We had to pick up 2 but they brought one to us. We really enjoyed their friendship and hospitality. They went above and beyond. Thanks
