Good morning COMTO family,


I hope this message finds you well and gearing up for a wonderful holiday time with friends and family.


We are still making updates to the website but I wanted to share some info on our holiday events last week.

Our holiday social on December 15th was a very well attended multimodal affair.  In attendance: Nat Ford (CEO, JTA), Charles Spencer (South Atlantic President, International Longshoreman's Association), James Sheck (Walmart distribution center trucking fleet manager), Dan Pearsall (Premier Management Corporation), Melvin Clark & Renee Banks (GW Peoples Contracting) to highlight a few.

On December 16th we delivered the senior gifts. They were so very grateful for the Christmas presents from COMTO.  The holiday committee members (Sherman Rothwell, Cathy Hussain & Marguerite Williams) worked very hard to organize and facilitate a successful senior outreach initiative.

We had outstanding sponsor support to reach and exceed our goals; special shout out to our fundraising dynamo Martini, she reached out to non-traditional COMTO sponsors and raised over $2,000. She was presented a special token of appreciation (flowers) at the holiday social for going the extra mile.


Bob Prince is a consistent supporter of the Jacksonville chapter and was a gracious Silver Sponsor of our events. At the social we acknowledged his leadership as past Board Chairman and his commitment to COMTO. We also presented him a token of appreciation and announced his retirement after a long and impactful career.

Please let me know if you have any questions. On behalf of COMTO Jacksonville, I wish each of you a blessed and happy holiday season. See you in March!
