Greetings from the Ashery!

We’ve got about 9 ½ hours left in the decade as I’m writing this. Whenever I think of 2020 my mind goes in a different direction – my eyesight. Going into 2021 a year from now we will be able to say in more ways than one, “hindsight is 2020”! ☺

As I look back over the past year I’m once again grateful for God’s faithfulness. Through the good and the bad God is good. I know it personally because I have experienced his goodness.

In November we had a really exciting thing happen here at the Ashery. Every year our local Chamber of Commerce chooses 4 businesses from the area representing Small, Medium & Large sized businesses of the year. In our 40th year, the Ashery was awarded the Medium sized business of the year award in Holmes Co. What an honor!

This award really needs to go to you, all our faithful customers, many of whom have become friends over the years. Your support is what allows us to keep our doors open with a desire to impact people through tasteful experiences. The real reason we are where we are in life is because of what others have done for us – something that a thank you somehow just doesn’t do justice to.

The next group of people that this award is to is our wonderful employees that come to work with a desire to serve. Thank You to everyone who has made this possible,

Welcome 2020! Let’s do this again, see you all soon.

Happy Trails, Curt
