The Limon Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize Don and Helen Morrison on their 70th year of doing Business as D-J Petroleum.  Their love of family, dedication to their employees and the support to the community is a hallmark, due of recognition.  Don and Helen started in the Petroleum industry in 1947 and on July 1st of this year will mark their 70th anniversary.

A Chamber member since the 1950's, I asked Don what was the secret to his success.  "Blessed, luck and lots of good friends and hard work to earn respect" said Don.  It was apparent that you could also add dedication, commitment, diligence, conscientiousness, persistence.  Looking at some of the awards and honors that surround his office and the amount of years that his employees have been with him, is telling.  With a great smile and spontaneous energy, most people would be envious of, it was a pleasure to visit with such a long time resident and Chamber member.

Our interview began outside as Don and some of his men unloaded fuel tanks.  "Look dangerous" I said.  He smiled and reassured my safety.  Nearby, friends, businessmen and neighbors fueled their trucks and shared a morning greeting.  Something special here.  A relaxed atmosphere and dependable business that makes you feel "at home".

When I asked Don how long his employee's have been with him, he replied "30 years, 20 years, and 10".  "You have to like people or you won't stay in business" quotes Don from a flyer printed on his 50th year of service celebration.  It is evident there is a lot of love and commitment to all who come in contact with the Morrison Family and D-J Petroleum.

Thank you Don and Helen and your family, from all of us, your neighbors, friends and fellow business owners for your years of service to our town, Limon, and all who have passed through, we are grateful and honor you and your employee's for all you do.

The Limon Chamber of Commerce
