Opinion
Welcome back to a new business season! 
I love the fall season, it always feels good when you get to change from flip flops to shoes and to start over fresh, with tons of energy. 

We are going to start the new business season with a Bowling Kick Off Event on
October 13th, which is a great opportunity to meet and greet with old friends as well as network with new ones. I hope to see you there.

The months that are left of this year are going to be specially interesting and hectic, with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Finnish Independence day and Christmas season coming up. Not to forget  the biggest event in the United States this year, the Presidential Election.


Let's kick off the season!
Yours in service,
Peter Makila
Vice President
