2015 In The Works!

As 2014 wraps up and we look forward to a strong 2015. I am grateful to all the time and effort Kathy Parks and Will Keyworth have put into developing our great fleet. We will work to grow the fleet on the solid foundation you have provided us.


We are working hard to provide the inclusiveness and transparency everyone desires. A draft 2015 schedule has been posted and a survey will be sent out to fleet members to collect everyone’s thoughts.

More to come,
