"To those who know MINISIS Inc well, The Collection (Historic New Orleans) has been a long time client and friend of MINISIS Inc. With the recent devastation from Hurricane Katrina, we send out our well
wishes to all of the staff at the Collection to pray that they are okay and that New Orleans will return to normality soon. We were overjoyed today to learn that Chuck Patch and Carol Bartels (and their
families) were able to evacuate the City before Katrina hit the coast and that they are safe."
