PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - December 2022
Good afternoon team! Fall blew by and winter is on its way! I hope everyone had a good Veterans Day and spent some time reflecting on our fallen. It is a great profession that we chose for ourselves and it is day to remember all the great men and women who we served with that are now in Fiddlers Green.
