In the open­ing night awards party at NAFA I&E on April 23rd at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City,  seven fleet pro­fes­sion­als were hon­ored with NAFA’s First Annual Fleet Excel­lence (Flexy) Awards. After the final award was announced,  the exu­ber­ant audi­ence of over 1,600 dined and then rocked to the music of  South­side Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. It was a rockin’ great evening!
