Plumbers Take on Tanking Economy
|Plumber Olympics Pipe Cutting Event|
SARASOTA -When Florida's economy slides from boom to bust, businesses suffer. Skilled tradesmen, like plumbers, are usually among the first to get pulled into the downward economic spiral. Yet, folks at one Sarasota plumbing supply company see the financial adversity as an opportunity to build community. To life morale, owner Seth Koplin sponsored the Second Annual Plumber Olympics. H e created the games in 2008 to lift the spirits of his customers at Plumbing Supplies and Specialties. If morale was low in 2008, it's really tanked this year. That's all the more reason to repeat the games though with a few cut-backs.
