  1. Yesterday, I got a call from XXX, a competitor in Massachusetts.  He had a lead for us from a Canadian company because they are totally maxed out and cannot take any more business.  I talked to the lady in Canada. She said she tried to place an order with her Canadian supplier and was told she could have plain RSCs . . . in November!   Wow.  These are crazy times.
  2. We are holding a raffle for potential employee to attend a Patriots game. It works like this:  Between now and September 10, anyone who applies for a job, and comes in for an interview has their name put in a hat for 2 Patriots tickets.   Hopefully this will at least get us some applications.
  3. Now, to be fair to the people who are already working here, I also bought 2 tickets for existing VPC associates. Every current VPC associate who shows up on-time every day between now and September 10 and has no unexcused absences will qualify to win 2 Patriots tickets for
