Thank You Home Depot for sponsoring our 1st Quarterly Coffee!
Thank you to Colleen Weaver, Ron Gomes-Petrach, Troy Store Manager, Tom McPharlan, Troy Assistant Store Manager and their staff for a great reception! Everyone walked out with some great give aways (Mag lights, safety goggles, 1st aid kits, patio and garden lights, and more). Live demonstrations on new products were given (have you seen the new sticky mat to hand tile? Amazingly cool!), Behr paint products (they have great product to save weathered decks and for wet basements!), and super new drywall (you may never hang a piece yourself, but how important is it to know what your contractors are using?!).
Keep an eye out for the next MREI Member Only Quarterly Coffee!
