National Ceiling Fan Day Flyer 2014

National Ceiling Fan Day – 2014

We are gearing up for the second annual National Ceiling Fan Day (NCFD) on September 18, 2014.  Last year’s launch was a major success!  We collaborated with the American Lighting Association (ALA), ENERGY STAR, Alliance to Save Energy (ASE), and many others!

Hello! My Name is Zonix LED

This is Zonix.  Yes, this is still a good time. Hang on one minute while I turn down the radio. What’s that? Oh, what was I listening to?

My dad is a huge fan and I can’t remember a family road trip that didn’t include CCR jamming in the background.  Sure, I’ll tell you about my family.  I’m the youngest of four kids and my parents have been together since high school. My family is really close and we still get together once a week for dinner. I learned everything I know about cooking…
