As 2011 draws to a close, we’d like to pause a moment to thank all of our customers, partners and friends for
the part they played in making the year memorable. One of our great
satisfactions is in the relationships we form with people in the course
As is our custom, in lieu of mailing greeting cards, we're donating to
the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that gives hope, strength
and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
To understand why we've chosen this organization, you might enjoy
reading the stories of some Make-A-Wish children and youths at www.wish.org/stories/recent/.
Our wish for everyone is a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!
