Absolutely Beautiful

As a member of the historical committee of the Homosassa Civic Club I was the first to contact you regarding our historical markers. Every one I spoke with was very nice and gave me all the information I needed. The markers we have received, in my estimation, are absolutely beautiful. Thank you very much.

Great Job

MPC took my rough material and did a great job laying it out. They waited until I reviewed the draft and approved it before quickly developing my signs. Thanks MPC.
