For Lessard Builders, our decision to team up with CNU Fitness as partners in The 8th Annual Dancing with the Delaware Stars was natural. CNU fitness is passionately involved in contributing throughout our local community. It was this shared passion for being locally focused and Delaware minded that led Christina Lessard and Sean Floyd to join together to support Dancing with the Delaware and the Greater Dover community. dancing-with-de-stars-image
