About a month ago our Amarillo Technician, Billy Hill, entered a contest for our office to win a free breakfast and coffee delivered by the ABC Channel 7 Daybreak Crew for our entire team. On August 30th Billy got the call... ...and was on high alert for phishing scams!!!!!! Low and behold this was legit and on Friday, August 31st, the Amarillo Team enjoyed breakfast from Rosa's. (The Daybreak Crew started their holiday early and was unable to be there in person).
Hey Billy...thanks for thinking of the Team. And well done on that 'high alert awareness' for company protection - Ha! And Christina thanks for sharing. Enjoy the pics....
