Great job again, Mary and the Green Team…

We do events like this all over the country – Chicago, New York, Toronto, Atlanta and New Orleans and in my 39 years of event production, nobody does it better!

Bill Burke

Green Mary – you and your crew are unbelievable. You all busted your butts all day long at the 4th of July which is a very long day and were still smiling at 11PM.

I can’t thank you enough.

Green Mary is a Certified Woman-Owned Business

“This is the true Joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it what I can.”

-George Bernard Shaw
