Thank you, Arnoff!


We are happy to report that we have settled in nicely to our new offices

at 205 South Avenue, Suite 200, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. The smooth transition

was due largely to Arnoff Moving, who were professional, courteous, and FAST.

We couldn't recommend them more. Thank you, Arnoff!
