Other Terminal Events

Our new Christmas Tree was put up and decorated by Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store (Facebook & Twitter). As you can see it turned out amazing.

We installed new Dyson Hand Dryers in the restrooms of the Terminal Building. Combined these units will save us several thousand dollars in electricity over the old 14 year old units they replaced in their expected lifetime.
