As you know, Monday, January 18, is a Company holiday as Frederick Wildman & Sons pauses to join the nation in remembering and celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his immeasurable contributions to the character of our country.
In his eloquent words and in the peaceful, compassionate life he lived, Dr. King gave our nation an inspired and encouraging vision of non-violence. He had a clear purpose for his life, and it guided how he lived and treated others. We would all do well to think about and learn from his powerful example of a life driven by peaceful action toward change.
The Dr. King holiday should encourage kindness and patience in how we treat one another. It should also shape how we might consider the unique and often unspoken personal experiences and challenges of our employees, friends, families, fellow citizens and the customers and communities we serve. And it reinforces the virtue of our own Frederick Wildman & Sons values of respect, excellence and community.
Please join us in a commitment to make a positive difference.
