Today was packed with people from the NS promoting what they are up to. I want to start with a great story about a young lady named Elizabeth Raymond. Elizabeth called in and won some Lake Loot a while back and then got teary while we were talking to her. You can hear the rest of her story (it is a good one) below. Here is a pic of Elizabeth, her husband, and the crew from Assuntas.
Thanks to everyone who made our gift to the Raymonds possible: ASSUNTAS, SPORTSMAN WAREHOUSE, SUGAR LOVE CAKES, CASTAWAYS TROPICAL DAIQUIRIS, FINNANS FAMILY PHARMACY, GREAT AMERICAN COOKIE AND MARBLE SLAB CREAMERY
