The big hand says….

I was sitting in our conference room waiting for a meeting to start.

Naturally I was watching the clock.

I noticed the clock was made in the U.S.

Made by members of our extended American family working at Chicago Lighthouse Industries.  I was amazed to learn that the workers who make these easy to read clocks will never be able to read them.  That is because all the workers at Chicago Lighthouse Industries are all legally blind.

Chicago Lighthouse Industries began making wall clocks in 1977 when they entered into their first contract with the federal government. These days they sell their clocks to the feds and to state and local governments.  Chicago Lighthouse Industries clocks can also be purchased at Office Depot, Sears and Office Max.

I am going to order a Chicago Lighthouse Industries clock soon.  I can’t imagine a better deal: a clock made by Americans who, despite their disabilities, go to work each day and support their families.  I hope you will join me in ordering a Chicago Lighthouse Industries clock for your home, your office and anywhere else where you need a quality clock.

Oh my God, is that the time!  Gotta go!
