Renee Mosier and Ermina Karim at Good Morning SLO. May 26, 2016.
C&N Family in the Community

Renee Mosier, wife of Carmel & Naccasha partner Dallas Mosier, was asked to speak at Good Morning SLO in May. Renee spoke about the ‘cash mob’ she has organized to help local businesses. She alerts a group of people (friends, family, business associates, and their invitees) to meet at a local business at a specified time and date. The ‘mob’ shops, eats, drinks, and generally get to know the business. As a secondary benefit, the gatherings can provide social and business networking opportunities for the attendees.

Renee was asked to speak about her experience in hopes that more people would create similar groups and help their favorite local businesses. Great job Renee!

Many thanks to Norcast and SLO Fire

Our block of Marsh Street is closed to through traffic during the construction on San Luis Drive. Recently, a delivery truck was going too fast to make the turn at the Road Closed sign and decided to use our driveway instead. He whipped in to the driveway, failed to notice the overhead lines and snagged them. SLO Fire was here almost immediately and let us know that the truck was caught on the phone and cable lines, but not power. One call to Norcast Telecom Networks and Jeff Buckingham appeared on the scene. Jeff worked with SLO Fire and the truck was moved. Many thanks to Jeff and the Norcast team, SLO Fire, and SLO PD. They were amazing! Just another reminder to do business with a local provider.
