Carrier Dealer Hall of Fame Weekend

Monday, January 13th, 2014

In early December, Michael Purl, Mickie Purl and Brian Driggs were invited to attend a special weekend in Indianapolis to celebrate the Carrier Dealer Hall of Fame honorees.  Michael Purl was inducted into the Carrier Dealer Hall of Fame in 2010 (see video below).  Michael was nominated & chosen for his business accomplishments as well as his extensive list of community service activities and leadership roles.  It has been a wonderful honor and experience for Michael and Mickie Purl and for the Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning team.

The weekend consisted of attending the Indianapolis Colts football game as special recognized guests, Carrier hosted dinner party, business meeting, and a tour of the corporate plant facilities.   It was a wonderful weekend and a great opportunity to visit with all of the past and present Carrier Dealer Hall of Fame honorees.
