SCORE Success Story - Warwick Ice Cream Co.

When I think back on the past several years and reflect on the dire circumstances my company faced as a result of many factors, I think first of the guiding light of SCORE and its army of caring volunteers. When everything else seemed hopeless and all that had passed seemed to be near an end, I was able to look forward, to see a shining beacon of hope and knowledge called SCORE. The people of SCORE stood ready to assist in any way possible. They showed knowledge and compassion in a time of desperation and uncertainty.

If not for the help, guidance and encouragement of the people of the SCORE organization, it was doubtful if the Warwick Ice Cream Company would survive in its present form. The knowledge and dedication of the SCORE personnel is a great resource for any person in business today. The level of knowledge and commitment that they bring to each meeting is unprecedented. This is a great resource for the small business owner in the face of economic recession and business cutbacks and layoffs. 

In an environment when it seems like all normal avenues for small business have been closed and all resources exhausted, the SCORE organization brings hope and encouragement to the small business owner. 

I would like to take a moment to make special note and personally thank SCORE counselor, Paul White. In a time when things seemed almost hopeless, Mr. White was a steady source of knowledge and encouragement. People with this level of dedication and skill are seldom seen reaching out a helping hand to others. I believe it to be truly remarkable that I had the opportunity to work with such an amazing and dedicated person. My time with Paul White is quickly coming to an end as Paul and his wife begin another chapter in their lives. We wish him and his family the very best in life and would like him to know that he will always have a special place in our hearts. We reserve a place of honor for him in the history of the Warwick Ice Cream Company.

Thank you Paul, and thank you SCORE for the great things you have done for me and my business. Getting to know Paul these past 5 years, I have a feeling that he is not quite done helping others. I am sure that there are more good things to come from such a dedicated and honorable man. I think it is fair to say that Paul White will be forever a member of the Warwick Ice Cream family. He has shown us what it truly means to reach out and make a difference to others. Good luck and God Bless.
