We are excited to host this event and cannot wait to see you all there!


The executives have been discussing a possible field trip to watch a live magic show, together as a group. A possible venue would be watching Greg Frewin's amazing illusion show in Niagara. We would need to know the amount of people interested in joining and an ideal timeframe to schedule the adventure! Anyone can join, we can plan to rent a bus to take us all down together. We were thinking sometime in the summer.
