Looking ahead in 2020

January 7, 2020

As we continue in our quest to support and advocate on behalf of business, entrepreneurs, and community, it’s time to look ahead to 2020. It’s a time for reflection and planning for improvement and change. We celebrate the end of many things and the beginning of others.

We have tried to build on what Don and Tom started here years ago. Our philosophy is somewhat simple, we try to work hard every day and provide straightforward communication with our customers. We tell our staff, ‘treat our customers like we ourselves would like to be treated.’
