  1. Suzanne –

    From my earliest days with the company, you stick out as one of the first to step forward and volunteer. You brought forth event ideas, and never lost sight of the importance of ensuring they were fun for the entire family. I’m very familiar with the great work you’ve done in the community – youre often the unsung hero making the events work in the background – but your efforts have never been lost on me. You’re an incredible volunteer – thank you! – Nathan
