Alfamiglia Nordest wishes to acknowledge two companies that gave us their generous support during the many months we worked to make the 2015 Convention a reality. They opened up their businesses to accommodate our monthly meetings and made our difficult tasks that much easier. We thank you both and wish you much success today and in the future.
