Yesterday marked the 20th Anniversary of the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City. Celebrating with the theme: 20 Years of Legendary Service...Embracing the Past, Focusing on the Future! the party was a culmination of a 20-day countdown. The countdown was full of fun facts and interesting information, as well as the creation of specialty desserts and menus for guests to enjoy. A commemorative challenge coin was also cast to celebrate the anniversary. The tradition of the challenge coin began with the U.S. military during World War I and was handed out by Top Brass as a token of belonging to an elite group. Only 500 were cast for the 20th anniversary, a gift guests are sure to appreciate.
