Congratulations to John Morrison and Ron Lofgren who are retiring from the Western Division Board and were recognized for their many years of dedicated service to the division recently at the Western Division’s summer meeting. John and Ron were committed to the division’s success and to the education of the next generation of professional pest control operators. Following is a little background information on them:
John Morrison has worked for D-Bug, a family owned business, for 35 years and has seen the company grow from a small family-owned business established in 1939 in Latrobe, PA to a company that offers expanded pest control services to customers in 10 counties. He has also been a guiding force in PPMA’s Western Division for many years, serving as the Governor for the division, and as President of the Pennsylvania Pest Management Association from 2008-09. After a dedicated career in the pest control industry, John’s looks forward to spending his retirement traveling with his wife, Judy, fishing and spending time with his grand kids.
A key to the success of any organization lies in the management of its finances and the Western Division owes a large degree of its success to the financial savvy of its longtime treasurer and board member, Ron Lofgren. Also a pest management professional, Ron has owned Professional Pest Management Systems located in West Newton since 1983. Ron is looking forward to spending more time gardening in his retirement and spending time with his wife Deborah and his family.
Kudos to both for their achievements and devotion to the industry. Enjoy your well deserved retirement!
