It’s our end of the month prize pack giveaway everyone!  There’s $100 on the line along with some great goodies that will be given away at the end of the show today. To become eligible to win simply sign up for our e-newsletter. On top of the elevator news videos I’ve been putting out online, I’ve got another week full with commentary and articles. Plus I get to get up on my soap box today regarding a couple of articles that are in the show notes. Special thanks to NAESA International and James Runyan for allowing me permission to reprint his article.  Another great article comes from San Francisco where an elevator company says enough is enough to an alleged slum lord who refuses to make the necessary steps to make sure his elevators are safe. Now that's what I call being an elevator advocate!

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!

It was great to see those of you who came out for the EESF Chicago Cruise last week. I was impressed at the support from many of you who traveled near and far to support the EESF! I personally would like to send a warm thank you to everyone who helped make the event a success! We raised enough money to educate over 56,000 kids. We look forward to next year’s event when we hope it will be a little bit warmer and sunnier! Light on content this week but a couple of articles worthy of sharing with your colleagues. Next week there will be no show as I’ll be on vacation. I’m looking forward to a week off in the Northwood’s of Wisconsin where I’ll be enjoying the great outdoors with my family. Thanks for listening to the show today everyone, be safe out there!
