Wow, how time has flown this summer! We are at the beginning of August and the supposedly “lazy days of summer” are more than half-way gone! Here, at Inter-State, we just wrapped up our summer sales meetings, and are gearing up for the next Fall season already. As our company met, not only in preparation for the next year, we also celebrated the amazing things the employees did last season. While in a state of reflection, I started thinking about the fun ways we not only recognized our employees, but also how we recognized our customers and supported causes that have meaning to you!
