The year was 1970. The median household income was $8,734. A first class stamp cost six cents and a gallon of gas broke the bank at $0.36. Sideburns were of epic proportion as mutton chops and bell bottoms, belted men’s sweaters and gobs of light blue eye shadow were all the rage.
Two men joined the predecessors of Cooperative Resources International (CRI) in 1970 and are still going strong. Congratulations to Thomas Handrich and David Quick on reaching the 45 year milestone in your tenure!
Oh what fun it is to peruse the files looking for
old dated experienced photos!
1975 brought the Apollo and Soyuz spacecraft take off for a U.S.-Soviet link-up in space, three men were found guilty in the Watergate cover-up and President Ford escaped two assassination attempts. It was also the year Willard Gowdy, George Shue, Matt Silbernick and Robert Young joined our team. Congratulations on 40 years!
Ah, the 80s! The number 1 song on the Billboard chart for 1980 was "Call Me" by Blondie and the Winter Olympics were held in Lake Placid, New York. It was the same year the following individuals joined our ranks.
