Summer is finally here in Chicago, as we went from 60’s to 80’s with 100% humidity! So much for the season of Spring. I hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend and had a chance to reflect on those who have lost their lives defending our country. Another lighter content show but there was a couple of articles worth reading, printing out and forwarding. Next week is the Elevator U Conference which I’ll be at in College Park, PA. I look forward to the educational programs as well as seeing many of you who are planning on attending. For those headed out to the event, have safe travels.
