Upcoming Remodelers Council Meetings

Chairperson’s Message

September 6

by Pam Magner

Just like that, back-to-school is the “season” upon us and I start daydreaming about crisp cool mornings! The heat seems like it came early this year but I’m sure August will make a play for hottest day of the year. Lately, I’ve been running from one jobsite to another hoping that my car’s air conditioner will actually be cold before I have to stop at the next one. I’m usually disappointed! I’m not, however, disappointed in the economy and how I hear everybody is booked for several weeks/months. (Unless, of course, I need to schedule them in two weeks.) I hope consumer confidence rides this wave for a long time! Once again, we do not have a meeting in August but be sure to attend the HBAL Hog Roast on August 11 at Matt & Tracy Kleinschmit’s acreage starting at 5:30 p.m. If you are interested in learning more about Nebraska Sales and Use Tax, HBAL is offering an educational breakfast from 8:00-9:30 a.m., on August 16 at the HBAL office. The Remodelers Council Golf Tournament is on Friday, August 25 at Holmes Golf Course with a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start. There is still time to register a team. Enjoy the warmth and abundance of summer! I hope to see you at our meeting on September 6!
