►    Customer Feedback: A Seasonal Service and Repair Report Card was received from Steven C. in Groton, MA. He rated us Excellent on all points. “I used your company approximately 3-4 years ago with a pool problem no one else could fix, and you did. I have purchased all supplies and equipment since then from you.”

►    Advertising, promotions, and specials all continue from last week: “August Clearance”

►    Remember, the Safety Reward Party at Kimball Farm is next Saturday, August 15, starting at 5PM. That means those of you working at the store that day may get there later. I’m sorry, but that’s why we don’t eat until 6:30 to 8:00.  Park in the event parking lot, come into the event area, and check in with the Kimball Farm employee. He or she will check you in. Remember, you work for Gull Group (that is who we really are) and you will get a stamp or a wrist band. You can hang out there, or go play a game or something. Come back by 6:30 to 7:00 for dinner and ice cream. After that, and the One-of-These Award, you can go back to play!

►    An unusually large amount of people declined to come to Kimball Farm, and a large amount did not bother to answer us. So we ended up with not enough people to have the event we promised (we can get you passes, but not for an event or as much). So I paid for more people than we have coming, to keep the event. So, I can get some additional people at the last minute. If you want to come and you did not reserve seats, let Rose know right away.

►    Chlorine deposits were all correct last week. Returns and warranty items were all good, also. Great job!

►    Remember, the first Above Ground Pool Closing class is Wednesday, August 26th.

►    Seasonal News should be arriving in mailboxes any day. If you get one at home, please write on it the date you got it, and put it in my mailbox so I can track delivery time and quality.
