Our newest plumber Billy Hanning Jr. took time off this past week to fly to Nova Scotia to play for the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team.  The U.S. National Sled Hockey Team defeated Canada, 3-2, to win the 2016 World Sled Hockey Challenge, making this the second consecutive year!

We are beyond proud of Billy and how hard he works on and off the ice.  While he said he wouldn’t actually wear the gold medal while on jobs, if he comes to your home make sure you congratulate him!
