January Gift of Appreciation

We are always trying to find original ideas/gifts to send to our Interims to show how much we appreciate how hard they are working for us. And sometimes they offer up some good ideas, thanks to one of our very own Interims they suggested we send umbrellas with all this crazy weather. So we did just that and it was a great idea! Hope you all enjoyed them and stayed nice and dry :o)
