A Message from Mr. Westphal
Hello! I can’t believe the year is wrapping up already. I feel like I just finally got a good home office set up. I am looking forward to celebrating with you all at our Zoom Awards Banquet in a few weeks. Mr. Meeuwsen and I are working hard to wrap up the year, as well as to plan for the fall. We are hoping to resume business as normal, but are aware that nothing is set in stone yet. As always, we will keep you up to date with what we know and can share. Hang in there!
