Not everyone was so fast. Gary Lamb, Eric Johnston, Mark Davis, Sandy Childress and Brian Seidel are rewarded for their efficiency by having to wait on the rest of us.

The developers and project managers on hand organized us for an efficient checkout process.

We got everything loaded up and Mollie delivered it to the people who will distribute it in time for Christmas. We love being a part of the Upstate community, and it's great being able to offer some assistance to others here in Greenville.
