Happy Happy Happy New Year!

Happy Happy Happy New Year! 2015 is almost here!

Well, 2014 is almost gone, and 2015 is right around the corner. It is amazing how time flies as you get older. Just think about the late 90’s. Everyone thought that when year 2000 hit, that the earth would be no more. On top of that, if we did make it to 2000, there were the problems with computers not recognizing the year 2000. There were going to be all kinds of problems. Now, all of that is a distant memory.

Again, time flies.

flip-flopTonight, Staci, other family members and I, are heading out for New Years. Typically, I am catching some zzzz’s when midnight rolls around. Well, this year is different. I want to help my Aunt Esther fulfill one of her “bucket list” items. So, we are heading to Folly Beach for the “Flip Flop Drop.”

I am looking forward to this time. My Aunt has had a very tough year, and it is a privilege to be able to go with her this evening. (Check out Flip Flop Drop 2012 … http://youtu.be/BLUJdy9Pjdo)

And with that being said, I would encourage everyone to take time to spend some time with your loved ones. We are not promised tomorrow. Unfortunately, on Christmas Eve, we lost a very special lady. This is John’s (owner of Arctic Air) sister Millie. Millie was a hard working, caring, and loving person. You could always expect a call on your birthday from her. When she greeted you, you could expect a big hug and a kiss on the check, usually follow by the words “I love you”. And, you knew she meant those words. She will be greatly missed, but not forgotten. She touched many people’s lives.   Your prayers and condolences for the family are greatly appreciated.

We are looking forward to 2015 with great anticipation. As mentioned in my last post, Arctic Air has attained several goals that have alluded us for the past 21 year. Now that we have reached those goals, we have more in place. We are going to work to be better in 2015. What do I mean by that? We want to have better customer service, better response times, better marketing, and more training.

We want to be better for you!

Finally, we would like to express our gratitude for all of our customers, vendors, employees, friends and family members. Without your support, we would not be here.

So my final words to you for 2014 are “THANK YOU!”

AA says thank you2
