Big thanks to all of the volunteers that assisted with ACE17 Philadelphia Booth in Chicago

Special thanks to our Betsy Ross impersonators: Christine Gunsaullus, Entech Engineering and Mona Cavalcoli, NJ-AWWA

Special thanks to Scott and Sue Hughes, Gannett Fleming for assisting at the ACE16 Opening Session.

Here’s a special note from Christine at ACE16

Good afternoon my water friends-

You were amazing!! Really amazing – I am so proud of the way you all sold the ACE crowd on how great Philly is.
We had no idea if the Betsy Ross costumes were over the top – turns out, people are REALLY nice to you when you’re in costume!
Getting people to pose eating a HUGE cheese steak seemed daunting… until you asked, and almost everyone did it! Please e-mail me any photos you took of this or other things at our booth – thank you Madeline and Jim for sending yours already. We’ll compile them into a video shortly, but you can see some highlights on my Linked-In page.

And the “Can You Speak Philly?” quiz and Liberty Bell pins were a huge hit. Our lofty goal was to give out 4,000 pins in 3 days, and we nailed it! I only have about 50 left to share with our friends at home who’ll be at ACE17 but couldn’t make it to Chicago. And that speaks to you all working so hard, engaging with the attendees instead of waiting for them to approach you, and putting a smile on so many faces.

In addition, we’ll be putting out a Call for Volunteers this fall via e-mail to all PA, NJ and Chesapeake members, and start recruiting several hundred helpers for next June.

Finally, let me know if you have any ideas on how to make ACE17 great! Mona, Don Hershey and I were already chattering away about things we’d like to do, because AMAZING things happen when passionate people come together and collaborate.

So thank you SO MUCH for sharing your passion for Philly this week – it was awesome!!
