To Bill Watson
President, PJ Association
    Thanks again for such a heavy lift at the reunion and rodeo last week. Of all my time in across CCT and PJ events, nothing compared to what you pulled off!

Getting a venue where we could hold the Summit for senior members along with the reunion and rodeo events on site was amazing. Having times for those to flow together was epic too, and from what I saw, made the summit, reunion, and rodeo be even better together.

To the Officers and
Directors of the PJA
    I have seen tremendous leaders guide our PJ Association over many years. The great ones have brought it to new heights. That is what we are seeing today: new heights because of great leadership, professionalism, and personal responsibility.

That does not happen by chance; it happens because of commitment, purpose, and dedication. PJ excellence to PJs. It's an allegiance .

Life Member, PJ Association
To the Officers and
Directors of the PJA
   In late 2015 I was approached by Bill Watson to develop a new website, a member database, and an e-commerce store for the PJ Association.

A significant undertaking and not possible without the insight, patience, persistence and attention to detail given by Bill Watson and Ryan Beckmann. My gratitude extends to all of the Officers, Directors, and Members for their trust and confidence in Webcraft 360.
