Answer Four Simple Questions – October 2018

Answer Four Simple Questions – October 2018

It’s officially fall in Ohio. The weather may or may not cooperate; only time will tell. But the calendar tells us the annual changing from summer to fall is now behind us. Like it or not, fall is here, and that means different things to different people – the return of Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING, Ohio State football, changing leaves, sweatshirt weather, nights around the fire pit, apple cider, and more.

In addition to those reminders of fall, for me, fall kicks off a season of reflection. Because it is also the time of year that we begin the process of planning our next season, I ask myself, what’s working and what isn’t? How can we improve our programming? What new services can we provide, or in what ways can we better meet our patrons’ needs?

This year, I’d like to directly ask you those questions, too. I’d love for you to reflect on your Palace experiences in recent months or even over the past year. After you’ve done that, would you take a few minutes to answer four simple questions for me?

When you visit the Palace:
1) What’s working?
2) What isn’t working?
3) What programming would you like to see?
4) How can we better meet your needs?

I, along with the Palace Board, value your input and insights – the things only you as a consumer of our services can share with us. Please email your responses to or feel free to write them down and mail them to my attention at the Palace at 276 W Center St, Marion, OH 43302.

While I hope you have lots of great things to say about your visits to the Palace, I also hope you’ll share the things we can do to make those experiences even better.

In the past we have surveyed our audiences by distributing a post show evaluation form. This season we’re trying something a little different, and we invite you to offer your feed back by visiting the Palace website at Please be sure to take a few moments after each visit to give us your ideas and input. Your voice is important, and your input is valued.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.

Enjoy all the things that make fall such a great season…and that includes some wonderful Palace programming!

See you soon…
