Social Buzz, May 29-June 2


Unfortunately, the kinks are still be worked out with the new platform for SocialSanford, so emails have been a bit wonky this week. Those issues have been addressed, so you should not receive another extraneous email. Thanks for your patience!

With that out of the way, SocialSanford would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our military men and women for their service and sacrifice on this Memorial Day. One thing that makes Sanford so special is the many military families who call our community home. We welcome and thank you!

Tip: Remember to use the hashtags #socialsanfordjobs and #socialsanfordgiveaways on Facebook for those updates throughout the week.
