This month we feature The Marble Doctor, a restoration company based out of Chantilly, Virginia. We present a report on the 2014 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium, an endeavor that we have supported for the past seven years, and FireUps.com is a web-based service that many fabricators have tried and found a marked improvement in turning visitors to their website into customers. As 2014 winds to a close, I would like to thank all the Slippery Rock staff, contributors, readers, and advertisers for their support as we conclude 2 decades of publication.
Send your letters and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your shop is doing something interesting – tell us about it. Your company could be the focus of a Slippery Rock profile next year. Have a very prosperous 2015!
– Larry Hood, Editor.
