Bob Smith, Jack Fitzgibbons, Taylor Strubinger, Bob Ready, George Cammann, Tony Kwedar, and Bill Ball (otherwise known as the seven elves.)

We fixed the holiday lights for Darien,
Wreaths from boxes we were a carry’en.
Replacing bulbs, fixing bows, blowing fuses
We did our job with no excuses.

So remember well the seven elves of SMA,
Working in the cold that November day,
We ask no praise, we did our task
But next year we might bring a flask!
