On October 1, Laser Image will celebrate our 28th year in business. It’s not easy sustaining a small business for nearly 30 years. But with the support of our wonderful customers, the many fabulous people who have worked at Laser Image, and the encouragement of friends and family, we have sustained and continue to thrive. Many heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped Laser Image grow to a ripe old age … for a business!
Being in the printing industry, I’m mindful of our responsibility to provide a sustainable product. Richard’s blog post – Why is Apple purchasing woodlands? – tells the story of the technology giant investing in a program to conserve and protect forests and to sustain working forests. I hope you follow the link to the broader story, to learn more about paper as a renewable resource.
Laser Image focuses some of our resources to help sustain important organizations in our community. On September 25th, we will join others in honoring Ray Buchanan of Stop Hunger Now at the “Packaging Hope” celebration at the Duke Center for Performing Arts in Raleigh, NC. Ray has spent a large part of his life providing sustenance to those in need in the US and around the globe, and Stop Hunger Now gives all of us a way to participate in that effort through their meal-packaging events. Laser Image will join with area Rotary Clubs in January 2016 at the MLK Day Meal Packing Event – a day organized to bring together service clubs, businesses and individuals with the goal of packing 100,000 meals, for local consumption, before the day is done. Watch for further information on this event in future Notes from me.
