Favorite LOTH memory

favorite LOTH memory

My favorite memory at LOTH was reaching my career milestone of 30 years of building LOTH to what it is today. While 2020 may have altered the celebrations, I enjoyed the virtual socially-distant events hearing from friends, family and business associates who helped us achieve so much after three decades. The custom Cincinnati Reds jersey was a bonus!
