        Jim Neal of "Preble Tents & Catering", says it’s time to bring down the curtain on this part of his extensive & busy life. For many years Jim Neal has managed his Preble Tent & Catering Business while he operated the Preble Hotel. We all remember his well known “Frog Pulls”. What Fun!!! After the closing of the Hotel, he continued for many years his successful Tent Rental and Catering Business.                Jim has contracted Marathon Auction Sales to sell to the walls his Tent and Catering Business. I will personally miss Jim’s dedication to my business. I have used his excellent services for 30 years. Now is the time to start an easier time for Jim so he can take care of his health.
