What's Happening In Our Office

On Wednesday, September 15th, we joined Coldwell Banker for United Way Day of Caring in which Dyann Crayne, Arlene Reynolds, Mark Scroggins, Rod Ericksen, Dennis LaVoie and Bianca put in a hard day of work to help a 63 year old grandmother who is raising her two grandchildren. 
     The day consisted of a lot of weed-eating and raking, and in the end we had wonderful fellowship together.  Mark tried to teach Bianca how to spit sunflower seeds while Dyann and Arlene made their own fun!
