A note from Ruth DeHart at Renewal by Andersen:

“It was our good fortune to have exhibited at last Sunday’s CHRS House Expo at Eastern Market.  We had a very successful day at the Expo.   We were impressed with the number of attendees who visited the booth, the set up, and especially the interest your staff showed us during the show at Eastern Market.  It was a perfect venue… We had several emails and phone calls from Expo participants interested in our work in historically significant homes.  …  Please extend our thanks to all. ”
