We hope that many of our members and wholesaler allied members are recovering from Superstorm Sandy and we want to reaffirm our commitment to assisting them in any way we can. Many businesses have been lost and many are still in the recovery phase. Our thoughts and prayers are with every business affected by the storm.
During such a devastating time, it is wonderful to see people working together and helping and supporting each other. Although I personally was very lucky and had no storm damage, I just said goodbye to two friends and their three cats that resided with me for the last five weeks. You can see this support and commitment from people all over the state.
