A Few of My Favorite Things

UMA Safety Seminar

John, Jeremiah, and David attended the UMA Safety Seminar in Annapolis, MD at the beginning of December. John was a presenter. You see how animated I can be in a video. Well, Jeremiah tried to capture a “still” photo of John doing his presentation, but it was next to impossible! (Just think what our family conversations can be like!)

I am proud our small company can give back to this industry. It is definitely one of my favorite things about this business.
