Joining Bill Shaw were CIF Vice President Kelly Broderick of Dedoes Industries, Treasurer Cheryl Boswell of DCR Systems, Trustee Petra Schroeder of Collisionista, Trustee John Bosin of Collisionist and John's wife, Elaine Bosin. Everyone agreed that the work was invigorating, deeply satisfying and fun.
CIF intends to continue these outreach efforts and will ask other industry members to join them. As Shaw says, "The sense of purpose is profound, the camaraderie excellent and the work itself is soul-satisfying. It's the perfect break in a week filled with meetings, conferences and exhibits."
