My "chafer" was my very good friend Tony Nicosia, who also provided the truck.  This bright yellow

 “I remember as a child sitting in the front yard of our home/business on Joor Road watching the cars go by.  Well, back then they were few and far between.  I have watched our little community grow into a thriving city.  As a lifelong Central resident, I am extremely proud to be a part of this thriving city.  I stood by my father’s side at CABA meetings and worked with my parents organizing the Christmas in Central Parade in its earlier days.
    Now a new generation of businesses has moved in to call Central home and CABA is now the Central Chamber of Commerce.  As the manager of our family owned and operated business that has been providing exceptional towing and recovery services to Central and surrounding areas since 1956.  It is with CENTRAL PRIDE I am a member of this fine group of business owners and leaders to make Central the best city in Louisiana”.
