The CFI would like to thank everyone that came by and visited its booth at the ICE Expo in Las Vegas January 30-31. It was great to see the many members who attended the show. CFI Member Jerry Valentine was one of the special speakers, talking about how to make big money off of small apartment jobs. Past CFI President Lisa Wagner was also on hand, speaking about marketing. Our raffle was a great success with over 145 hotel shampoos, conditioners, soaps and lotions collected for donation to Ronald McDonald houses throughout California.

Larry and Cathy Snyder from Magic Rug Cleaners in Palm Desert won the 32-inch TV. Brian and Kelly Ritchie from Mr. Steam’s Valley Steam Carpet Clean in Idaho, won the Dri-Eaz Dri-Pod, donated by Ray Burnsfield from Carpet Maintenance Supply. CFI member Charlene Locke from Sequoia Cleaning in Mountain View, CA, won the Water Claw spot lifter donated by Steve Kaufman from Proline Supply.
