September Meeting - Communications, Computers, Cloud
Presented by our own:
Deb Schindler Boltinghouse

We work most often with companies that are moving, remodeling, expanding, and those just wanting to enhance their technology solutions. We do this by providing premise or cloud solutions for phone systems and data networks. Surveillance, WIFI, and cabling solutions including voice, data and fiber are also part of our core strengths.

 

We are in the top 5% in our industry with our NPS-Net Promoter Score so our service and installations are customer friendly. We have been in business 34 years and know how to ask questions to ensure you are getting the best solution with the understanding of your goals.

                                 Thank You's 
As we discussed at January's Members Only meeting, in addition to allowing time periodically throughout the year for formal 'thank you's' to our members, the com-munications team will also offer a monthly opportunity for you to share your Thank You's so they will be received timely.  This will be done for members only and a reminder will be sent with the monthly e-mail to notify of the meetings; and then your Thank You's will be included in the 'reminder'e-mail for that month's meetings as a link.  Please send your Thank You's to Brenda Bowers and Marilyn Drane for this purpose.

MEMBER BUSINESS CARDS 
If you are interested in having your business card published here each month for all who access the website to view, please send a copy of your business card to the Com-munications Team - Brenda Bowers and Marilyn Drane.  Your card will be published on a first-come, first-serve basis for the remainder of the year.  The cost is $100 and needs to be paid (not eligible to be paid on the website) to Emily Forsythe, our Treasurer.

Mary Jane pulled Number 1!  That meant she got to go first AND could pick anything she wanted after all of the others had chosen/stolen their gifts!  She started with the ergonomic toilet step, after it was stolen (by Suzy Johnson), she chose the Aloha package, and then her final steal was the teak mask from Brenda.

So, these were the members who were not challenged for their selection...they took these 'lovely' gems home (or the photographer did not capture all of the commotion at the end and missed the stealing going on )

Even though some tried VERY hard to 'sell' their pick to someone else -   P-L-E-A-S-E!!!!  (NO takers! )

Then, there were those that couldn't keep a gift - someone kept stealing their gift.  A gift was not eligible to be stolen more than three times.

And the ULTIMATE, MOST FUNNY event of the evening had to be when people tried to steal Nan's 'perfect' gift for her.  (Some did succeed at stealing it!)

In her own, tactful manner, Nancy left the perfect hostess gift by donating her gift, the Pilgrim Lamp, to Mary as it went perfectly with one of her paintings.  Voila!!
