“I would like to take this opportunity to both thank AND compliment everyone at HFFI for their hard work on the Historic Pub Tour this past weekend. It is near impossible for us to believe this was the first such outing as it was so perfectly arranged and executed! We thought all the speakers were knowledgeable, articulate and extremely interesting. Again, to ALL of the HFFI associates that planned and participated—we’d like to extend our thanks and appreciation for a job well done!” -HFFI Member
