Friday, October 5, 2012 is Manufacturing Day. Here's something even cooler than that. As part of Manufacturing Day, companies who manufacture their products here in the USA are opening up their facilities for tours and/or presentations. Talk about bringing it home. This event brings you, the consumer, in to the very place where the products you buy are made. That is very exciting to me. To see if there's an event near you, click here. It sounds like a good field trip.
