In December 1975 our founder Gene Duffy published the very first Hummer. It was a quick four page heartfelt greeting from Gene along with updates and encouragement.
The Hummer has since become a longer publication with a broader audience of more than 10,000 across the country.
Subscribing to the Hummer is free! Just share your address with us, and we’ll start shipping you one every quarter.
