 S-Helper Service
Open House 2002


On Saturday, March 2, six members of the South Jersey S Gaugers made a trek to the open house event hosted by Don and Robin Thompson of S-Helper Service. We were treated with some excellent discounts, an informative seminar on maintenance,  and a buffet table that was kept full throughout the day. We were even invited to participate in Rogers birthday party! In appreciation, we have devoted some of our WEB space to report on the event. Many thanks Don & Robin!
