“ I just wanted to say thank you on a great job you did at Koodaideri village. The roof went down as planned and they made it look easy. The generators were placed into their location without a hitch. All the guys had a great attitude and work ethic. Our power went down so they had to endure a hot night without any running water but none of them complained. Once again thank you and pass on my thanks to everyone involved in the job.”
