COS' 40th Anniversary

To Our Loyal Customers and Friends,
To Our Dedicated Staff Members and to My Supportive Family
Always at this time of year, I take inventory.  And today, as we celebrate our 40th year in business, I confirm once again that without you, this celebration would not be possible!
We may not be celebrating with any fan fare during these tough economic times, but we have YOU!  And as a result, we can still acknowledge the special occasion because you help make it so.
February 05, 1973 was a perfect day!  My heart was full of thanks.  For the opportunity that was before me and for all the day had brought.  Today, 40 years later, the memories of starting out, the trials and tribulations begged a question in my mind.  Was it worth it?
Yes - it's been worthwhile.  February 05, 2013 was another "Perfect Day".  I've been blessed to have met so many people, one of which was you.  The days to come will not be as long as the days gone by, and I will be enriched further, knowing I can count on you.  And so, THANK YOU - for remaining loyal, for allowing us to continue servicing your needs.  To those of you that work here, who support me, my heartfelt THANKS!
And most of all, to my family for loving me and supporting me through the good times and the bad and the sacrifice you make every day.
