I will worked there when I was in High School. That was back in 2000-2001. I loved that job, the staff that I had to deal with were very nice and I enjoyed working there. I live in Delaware now and we do not even have a LJS. RIP LJS of Quincy. You will be missed.

Maybe they should try letting people, business's and organizations know about the survey. As a 25 year old business I have received nothing regarding GREDF but that's not unusual.
