Thanks so much for all of your hard work to put on the expo yesterday. I would say that it was quite a success. My wife and I made a good number of very fine contacts. Now for the follow up. We’ll have to see how things go from here. We’ll let you know. Compared to other events, this was a very good audience that you drew in.

by R.A.

It was very clear that you put a great deal of personal effort into bringing [our community] together for this event... The rewards of getting the business community together in one place is always difficult, and the values are basic requirements for a successful small business community.  Thank you for all the hard work you put into this...  You did a good job!
