    "Rendezvous ’14 will be held in the 300 year-old port city of Mobile, Alabama, a city rich in history. Mobile has flown the flags of six countries: France, Spain, England, the United States, the Confederacy, and the short-lived Republic of West Florida. This gracious southern city has the country's oldest Mardi Gras celebration, beautiful waterways, fresh seafood and so much more. Founded in 1702, Mobile offers a unique Southern experience you won't find anywhere else." SHS

    PSLS President Adam Crews recommends that all field crews carry proper personal and employment identification. He also suggested that field personnel have clothing and vehicles clearly bearing the name of their company. Having clear marks of identity may help homeowners feel more secure in dealing with strangers. As Crews pointed out, it is free walking and driving advertising.
