Who is Frances?
That’s usually the last question everyone asks, but we should probably tell you that up front. The ethos that Frances instilled in her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are the principles that drive this company. Born during the Great Depression of the 20th Century to immigrant parents, she was driven to live a life of service. She was a military spouse, a community leader and a newspaper columnist. Frances devoted countless hours to worthy causes ranging from the Board of Elections, the Girl Scouts and the PTA. She was the Polish Princess of fundraising for charities (that means she could throw one helluva party). She taught us the importance of fearlessness, of determination, of being resourceful, and she taught us the golden rule. Above all else, she taught us the meaning of family. When people say “the apple didn’t fall far from the tree,” I humbly say “thank you.”
