Dear Cookie and Team:

It’s Tuesday afternoon in Vernon Hills. There are 10 inches of snow on the ground, 4 more falling around me right now while I shovel my driveway to clear a path for the mailman. The UPS driver rolls in and delivers a package that I expected in few days from now. It is IT….. my order from FlagPro, and it proves beyond doubt that….Santa is …… a Cubs fan! Thank you so much for the ULTRA prompt delivery before Christmas. I know you can’t pull this off every time, but this is a story that will certainly make the rounds around my neighborhood and at work.

Happy Holidays to you and your family- you made mine!
