Center Stage primarily supplies Photography and commercial services during May to June each year. Our innovative practices benefiting the bride resulted in the company growing more than initially envisioned. Due to our human resources and quality equipment we are gradually expanding beyond the wedding season.

January 1988Present (26 years 9 months) Mexico NY

All of my engraving career has been inspired by the concepts of Arts and Crafts Movement and the work of William Morris. I engrave by hand with a hammer and chisel or a hand burin. True hand engraving does not involve machines.

Home Care (EISP). The purpose of this program was to "keep people out of nursing homes" Unfortunately, the net result was to put people in nursing homes by discouraging home care by available and willing sons and daughters.
Although people have good intentions, government does not always work as intended.
