On Thursday, October 29th, 2020 Longview Pet Sitting, LLC held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Longview Chamber of Commerce to celebrate its official opening and offering of services to the greater Longview, Texas area. The event was attended by a number of chamber staff, chamber members representing the Ribbon Cutting Committee, my Wife Juliet (and co-owner of Longview Pet Sitting), my parents and best childhood friend who resides in Longview.
After Juliet and I set up a table with some light lunch items and refreshments, family, friends and fellow members of the chamber assembled for the ceremony. At 11:30 am Olivia Secord-Giddings of Farmers Insurance representing the Longview Chamber of Commerce REACH Team introduced Longview Pet Sitting, LLC and allowed Juliet and I to briefly talk about our business and the services offered. This was followed by another REACH Team member reading and presenting me with a letter of welcome from the Mayor of the City of Longview. Finally, before officially cutting the ribbon, a third chamber team member presented me with a plaque. The giant scissors are not just for show as they are actually pretty sharp.
I want to thank my Wife Juliet, my parents Dr. Joseph and Marilyn Bianca, my dear friends Derrick and Raquel French, the Longview Chamber of Commerce and the members of the REACH Team for your support in welcoming Longview Pet Sitting to the Longview Area and to welcoming me back to my hometown. Your participation and attendance made the ceremony a very special occasion.
