“Leaving off from a similar meeting at Restek Corporation last March, Murray Securus hosted a roundtable discussion in July 2015 at Clipper Stadium, home of the Lancaster Barnstormers, an International League Baseball Club.

“Below is a photo taken after our meeting. Attending were, from left to right, Chris Fitterling of Bollman Hat Co., Judy Stoner of Murray Securus, Walter Van Nuys of LB Water Co., Lori Townsley of Murray Securus, Brian Bledsoe of HB McClure Co., Leah Scarsella of Murray Securus Matt Pfeiffenberger, of Murray Securus, Mike Shuey and Pete Rose of Restek Corp., and Jeff Gelburd of Murray Securus.

“Our discussion centered on the balls and strikes of communicating the ESOP within our respective companies and developing a more robust employee ownership culture.

“After the two and a half hour meeting, we then took in a game to see the Lancaster Barnstormers take on the Rockport Blue Fish.

It was a fun night for us all.”
