Dear Clients and Friends,
Curtis Pest Control is proud to mark a momentous occasion—our 30th anniversary! Some of you have been with us since the beginning and your loyalty has truly been a blessing. You have watched us grow and change as a family. You were there when Jim started and ran the company, his beloved wife Marta worked as his secretary, Kevin and Heidi started and raised their family, and Alan and I went from newlyweds to married 30 years this past June. You wished Jim, then Marta, well when they took their much deserved retirement many years ago and as Alan was handed the reigns and became our Vice President and Operations Manager. You welcomed me when I came aboard as Alan’s office manager close to 17 years ago and you wished Kevin well when he too retired several years back.
Being a small business is exceedingly rewarding. You aren’t just numbers and figures to us. Likewise, we aren’t just nameless, faceless, people to you. Because of that many of you have become dear friends who have allowed us the privilege of watching your lives grow and change just as ours have. Being a small business can also be challenging—sadly, the pandemic confirmed that. With the severely crippled work force, exceedingly slow supply chains and higher priced goods, it led to many having to either limit their services, or much worse, permanently shut their doors. After all of the hard work it has taken for us to reach our 30th anniversary, we can’t begin to imagine being in the position of having no choice but to close. It has indeed been a sad time for many American small businesses, which makes us even more thankful to be the exception.
Lastly, it would be remiss to not give credit where credit is due—our loyal clientele. Throughout the years your loyalty has been the one constant. Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning, or recently chose us to provide your service, we are grateful to still be going strong because of you. We are thankful beyond measure that during this difficult time for all of us, we have so many thoughtful and understanding clients who recognize we are all truly “in this together” and have continued to support our business. I may be a wee bit biased, but I think our clients are the best! So as we move into the New Year, we wish each and every one of you a year filled with good health, love, peace and joy.
With a grateful heart,
CPC Office Manager
