Harry Bryan of Nisus drove over 800 miles from Tennessee with a huge roaster in-tow just to cook the greatest southern barbeque (New Yorkers are the best judge of good food from any where) for about 180 attendees. Helping out with the cooking along with Harry’s wife were Lynn Williams of Nisus and John Murphy of LiphaTech who helped arrange the sponsorship for this event.

NEW YORK -  The newly formed New York State Pest Management Coalition, consisting of all three New York Pest Associations (Long Island Pest Control Association, NYSPMA  and PPMANYC), held its first Seminar, Trade Show & Clambake at Queens County Farm in Glen Oaks, NY. All monies raised went to the NSPMC PAC to support our lobbying efforts in NY.  This marks a first time in anyone’s memory that all the groups came together.
