INTERSOURCE — School of Thought

Summer is receding. Only the late bloomers, the Asters, the Goldenrods, the Toad Lilies, are showing their true colors. But, wait, so are the kids. Kids in their newly purchased stark white tennis shoes and fresh haircuts. New backpacks, colorful notebooks and pencil cases sit in the corners of bedrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms, in anticipation of the first day of school. Parents are counting the minutes —unless they have kindergartners, in which case, they are fretting them.

Another season come and gone.


INTERSOURCE, too, is looking ahead to a new season while also sporting our own version of white tennis shoes — we’re talking polished new employees! Tom Gross and Kelly Dahlman come to INTERSOURCE with a bounce in their step and a zest for making new relationships and providing excellent customer service. Read all about them here and be sure to say hello the next time you are in.



Playing Hooky

The summer provided many great opportunities to cultivate new business relationships and solidify existing ones. Fun was had along the way:

While the rest of us were plugging away at work, Sue Kimal (Commercial Account Manager) took a day to hang-out with the President —the president of IFMA (International Facility Management Association), that is. INTERSOURCE was the President’s Golf Cart Sponsor at this year’s IFMA Golf Tournament which meant Sue got to deck out a golf cart with INTERSOURCE paraphernalia and tool around the course with the IFMA president, who happily sported a carpet flapper dress custom made with tender loving care by Sue!


The Golden Rule

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. INTERSOURCE always tries to operate by this maxim, and by once again supporting the Design for a Difference (DFAD) movement, we hope we are succeeding.

Please stay tuned to learn more about this year’s DFAD efforts, led by Lucy Penfield of Lucy Interior Design (last year’s regional winner of the DFAD contest). DFAD has evolved to become a community driven movement that brings together socially conscious interior designers, showrooms, and other businesses to give back to those that give. This year, Bridging, a local nonprofit organization that provides furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty, was selected as the lucky recipient of a space remodel for their Found It! Estate Store where all proceeds benefit Bridging and its mission. Please save the date for a great evening dedicated to revealing the space makeover and to showcasing the vignettes designed by local award-winning designers. It should be a magical evening!

Thursday October 29th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. More info to come.
