Making 'lemonade'

Making 'lemonade'

On Jan. 2, Soft Trac was one of 26 businesses who suffered the loss of their main office due to a fire that destroyed the building at 500 Route 1 in Yarmouth. While we were determined that we would not let the fire distract us from our mission of giving back to our community by helping nonprofits, we were forced to embark on a journey of rebuilding the company. It is with a grateful heart that we acknowledge the help and support given to us by our customers, vendors, business associates, the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce, our former landlord and his staff as well as our many personal friends and family.

There are too many people to acknowledge individually here, but you know who you are. Everyone from Art and Rob, who made certain that we had a chance to retrieve what we could, to the friend who delivered homemade cookies or gave one of us a hug, to the associate who offered us space to conduct business while we rebuilt, or the vendor who replaced our business cards and letterhead at no cost, to the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce staff member who made certain that we knew of available donations. Your thoughtfulness will not be forgotten.

You will all be happy to know that Soft Trac has turned the "lemons" into "lemonade." Our new office space at 361 Route 1 in Falmouth provides us with more space to conduct our business. An open house is planned for mid July.
