    Hey Auburn NY ! Where the heck ya been?
    Geo. at Hannibal here ! Bought a new truck at Auburn Chevy recently !

    For finding out who is looking for bids on plowing.........
    Check the local newspapers in the legal notices.
    Thats where I see the post office, fire dept.,vfws, etc..... asking for bids on plowing their lots and such.

    Also post here in the networking forum...... Call a company called On-Site in Baldwinsville NY..... They hired a few guys I know from Liverpool for subs last year.

    Drop me a e-mail at sonjaab@ aol.com for other tips !

    BTW: Don't forget the snowplow BBQ in Poughkeepsie Oct 30th this year !
