Business Exchange/Sharing:

We went around the horn today and caught each other up on the last few weeks about holiday experiences and what is happening in our businesses. Happy to report that there were no new COVID-19 cases amongst club members and most everyone had a scaled down Christmas and New Year’s celebration.

Of note, Todd Anderson said his limo business won’t be growing much until employees start to return to offices. Mark Ahmann has a son sitting in a hotel room for 4 weeks before he can start basic training in Wisconsin. Chuck Shreffler has a son in Colorado awaiting a kidney transplant and just had some good news about when that will likely happen. Many more stories were shared as well.

Craft Talk:
