Mid-Willamette Valley June Marketing Update

We have received a few testimonials in the past month, that we have been excited to share on twitter and linked in. Now it is our turn to return the favor...


Retirement Connection would like to give a shout out to Portland Badge and Sign Company for always being a huge help with our events. From posters, to flyers, to last second missing name badge replacements. Their  customer service is always impeccable and each project is completed with high quality materials and expertise. We highly recommend that your company consider Portland Badge and Sign Company whenever you are in need of a promotional product, marketing collateral, vehicle graphic, or name badges (anything from business cards to billboards- including car wraps). They will happily work with your team until you are 100% happy with your project. In addition, we are excited to share that Retirement Connection sponsors receive a 10% discount! Visit www.PortlandBadge.com for more information or call 503-639-8459.

Nugg et of Knowledge


The less specific you are about what you order. The more likely you are to get what you asked for.

- our waiter "Jerry" from a family dinner

Is it because you are too picky and looking for something to be wrong OR because you are easy going and easy to appease?
Traveling in the third world, you would walk in and ask " do you have food?" Here we enter a 5 star restaurant and need to edit, add and remove ingredients from the creation of a professional after we chose to enter their domain.  -Amy and mostly Lyman
Please contact us if you need additional copies of the Guide. They are available at no cost, and are the perfect resource for health fairs, workshops and your marketing packets.
