Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We hope the holidays have treated you well and another year finds you in good health and happiness.
We would like to send a big Thank You to all of our wonderful customers and vendors that make doing business such a treat.
Green Connection has been undergoing a few changes with the New Year. The current owners, Gary and Margie Schaefer, have decided they would like to close this chapter of their lives. They are driving off into the sunset to enjoy their retirement in style with their new Freightliner Van. As for myself, I will be taking the reins as the new owner and look forward to writing my own chapter with Green Connection.
Many of you know me, but for those of you who don’t, here is a bit of my background. I have enjoyed working for Gary and Margie and Green Connection for the past nine years. I started doing exterior flower maintenance and have worked my way through the operations position and into sales and design. In addition to my experience at Green Connection, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Horticulture from Colorado State University and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Alaska Anchorage.
The transition should be smooth with very few changes. I am delighted to say that the staff will continue on with me, as most of us have known each other for many years now. We all wish Gary and Margie the best and will miss them as our Green Connection family gets a bit smaller.
Thank you very much for your business. We are looking forward to continuing to serve you.
