Words of gratitude from Byrum & Fisk

Posted on: November 21, 2018 | By: Olivia Adams | Blog

It’s been a busy year for the Byrum & Fisk team and we are grateful for all of the opportunities we’ve had in 2018 to make a difference in communities across the state.

From running winning campaigns to helping our clients fight for a better, more sustainable Michigan, we are truly fortunate to have helped play a role in these important issues, efforts and campaigns. We want to thank our clients, colleagues, friends and families for supporting us and our work this year.

With Thanksgiving upon us, we thought we’d share a few words of gratitude as well as some of our favorite Thanksgiving foods (because if you know our team, we love to eat and drink!)
