Look what we found in this old photo album!

Look what we found in this old photo album!

Remember the last time you stumbled upon a box of old photos, and how the minutes turned to hours as you went through them all? We were rummaging around in storage this week, and found two albums full of great people and memories.

It seemed like a prime opportunity to reflect on how far we've come as a company. But that's not what happened.

Instead, this album provided our team the chance to laugh at 90's fashion, and the questionable choices in hairdos, facial hair, clothing, and eyewear.

With that said, we are honored that several of the people who started with us way back then are still working here today. That makes this feel like a family, not just a business.

We're also quite proud of our building remodel. We purchased the building at 122 W. Prairie Avenue in 1992. In 2013 we completed a much-needed remodeling that included peeling off every single brick, and refacing it with new ones.

Now, on to the funny stuff.
