Hello Everyone ... It's Been A While ...



Hello Everyone!

This is Keith Ditmore, from Michigan.
My Parents are Curtis & Fritz Ditmore.

I haven't posted in quite a while ... Sorry ...

I started a new business is March and have been working 60 to 80 
hours a week ever since.
Actually I started three companies this past year, 2002.

I am President and Owner of 3D Personnel, Inc. as well as 3D 
Temporary Services, Inc., both are supplemental staffing services.
The Personnel company specializes in providing Machine Tool Skilled 
Trades Personnel, like Electricians, Pipefitters, Builder/Assemblers, 
Machinists and Welders.

The Temp Company specializes in Light Industrial/General Labor 
Personnel and Office/Clerical Personnel.
Between the two companies, we have 24 employees!

The third company that I started with the help of many family members 
and friends is called, "Kenny's Angels, Inc.", and is a Fund Raising 
Company that was started in Honor and Memory of my youngest Brother, 
Kenny Ditmore.

Last year we held a Charity Event on what would have been Kenny's 
32nd Birthday, April 7th, 2002. We raised over $10,000 dollars.
We donated $5,000 to MI-C.O.P.S. (Michigan Concerns Of Police 
Survivors, which suppors the surviving family members of Police 
Officers that loose their life while serving the community), $3,000 
to Animal Aid (They house animals that are about to be put down until 
they find them a home), $1,000 to the Detroit Fireman's Fund 
(Supports Disabled Firefighters and the Surviving Family Members of 
Fire Fighters that loose their Life while serving their community), 
and $100 to The Michigan Humane Society.

This has all kept me very busy and I appologise for not being a more 
frequent visitor to the "Ditmore Center". I promice to try harder in 
2003.

My family and I (Keith, my Wife, Ann and our Son, Wayne) were at the 
Ditmore Family Reunion that was held in Sweetwater, Tennessee back in 
1999.

We had a GREAT TIME then and are really looking foreward to this 
years Ditmore Family Reunion, July 25th, 26th & 27th, 2003 to be held 
here in Livonia, Michigan.

Ann and I are members of the planning committee, we helped to 
research and make arrangements for the Lodging and Banquet Rooms at 
the Embasy Suites Hotel in Livonia, Michigan. It is a GREAT Hotel, in 
a Gret Location and is currently being renovated throughout the whole 
facility.

We are really planning a lot of activities and fun family time.

There will be over 40 local Michigan Ditmores in attendance, but it 
will not be a success without the rest of you in attendance, so I 
really do hope you will all plan to attend, and send in your 
Reservations.

We can't wait to see you all in July!!!

Detroit is a GREAT and Safe place to visit with plenty of fun stuff 
to do while you are here.

Tigers are playing in town that weekend against Kansas City, at our 
new Staduim, Comerica Park. There are games Friday and Saturday
