awesome group of professionals! Now that I will be working from my home office with no travel on the horizon, cranking it up with the GAPPP Professionals locally is the ticket!!

It was a pleasure to be invited and to attend the President's Dinner -- My wife of over 64 years and I enjoyed every minute. The 1960s started with
a few of, and I write this truthfully, gathering to start a friendship-organization. There were in the organizing Group several outstanding
leaders -- They had foresight and I enjoy thinking that They were the
basis for the strength of the height that GAPPP has achieved today.
Atlanta Novelty was started 1918. Walter Richard sold calendars and pencils with ads. Marc Morris Adv. Spec. 1958 - Bought Atlanta Novelty 1961. Margot, Our Daughter, owns AANC. 2018 - 100 Years.
Thanks so much.
Marc Morris, CAS (And proud of it)
