I recently came across an original Mission Statement written by my husband Ron when Spirit Creek was taking its first steps in growing from a hobby to a business. I thought it should be shared.
He has held true to his words all these years. I am very proud of him for building a business out of love and to be a part of the love that Spirit Creek Walking Sticks gives to so many.
