Creating a personal connection with our customers and the local community 3rd Qtr 2016
Hello %%First-Name%%,

What better way is there to celebrate this 4th of July than spending time with friends and family watching fireworks? As the colors light up the sky, we will be thinking of the many men and women who have fought bravely to preserve our freedom. We wish you a very happy Independence Day, with deep gratitude to all of our veterans.

Reminded of our company's origins and heritage, we also celebrate our 25th year in business. We hope you will join us for an Open House on September 22nd, and come build with us as we raise awareness and support for a new affordable home in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Oakland County (details below).
Many thanks,

Steve Ramaekers
