Strong Start® is honored to be included in a special publication that will arrive in many homes in Kitchener-Waterloo the last week in March 2005. This top-notch publication profiles several businesses in the K-W area that are K-W success stories. TOP NOTCH…Profiles in Excellence is a partnership initiative between Impact Events Group and Bottomline Resource Group. Terry Scott White Photography captured the many great images. In keeping with their focus on community, Bottomline Resource Group donated space to profile a local charity. We are grateful to John Turvey of Bottomline Resource Group for choosing to tell the Strong Start® story and to Terry White for donating his services to capture the program in action.
