The gentlemen who came to the office were very friendly and helpful.

Your driver was GREAT!

- Warren Copenhaver – Fayetteville

The event was extremely profitable for city residents. The young man was prompt arriving and setting up. residents lined up quickly and there was a constant flow of traffic. The only thing that I really would change would be a larger vehicle. There were quite a few residents that were turned away because the truck was full. All in all, I would count it as a great success.
