We Recycle Standing with our Drilling Industry Yesterday ~ Today ~ Tomorrow See you on the trail . . . Look for the Red Jackets at The South Atlantic Well Drillers JUBILEE in Myrtle Beach, SC. With Pen - Computer in hand . . . Veronica I. “Ronnie” Jones, 850-547-0102 Gosh, here it is heading into the really hot part of the year. Hard to believe, it was just yesterday the temps were in the 40s and 50s, and now they are nearing triple digits. I think we all need to be sure we take some time to “hydrate” ourselves with WATER before, during, and after we venture out into such temperatures. SAFETY is always a MAIN CONCERN here at WorldWide and we hope you keep it a top priority for your families as well as your employees. A BIG “Congratulations” goes out to the Florida Ground Water Association, the exhibitors, and the attendees for making that event the tremendous event it was. For those who missed it, this voice of experience was very impressed with the turnout. I’m personally happy to see so many people getting their lives back to normal. Smiling faces make the world go ‘round and are contagious - spreading happiness to so many people. Sheryl and I were pleased to have so many people stop by to visit with us, and to hear how they have been doing and what they are eagerly looking forward to. HAPPINESS! Next up for the WWDR Team is the South Atlantic Well Drillers JUBILEE, Texas Ground Water Association Convention, and of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t put a plug in for our own event in Branson - The Second Annual WorldWide DownHome DrillFest™ . It is shaping up to be quite extraordinary this year. How ever many you choose to attend, and which ones are on your radar, just go and enjoy yourselves. You deserve it! As we say here in Florida, “It’s your turn!” Wondering what that fancy bike is doing parked here? Well, it’s waiting for you to take a ride and journey along with the WWDR Team. We have so much in store for you in the upcoming months and OF COURSE, years to come. Stay tuned!
