Chairperson’s Message by Pam Magner

When I was a kid, my brother hated going to the dentist so much that he skipped an appointment and let my mother think he had gone. She dropped him off and he pretended to enter the office. As soon as she drove away, he walked to the 7-Eleven a block away and played video games until he had to meet her outside the office building. I shouldn’t compare the Home and Garden Show to the dentist, but sometimes I think exhibitors similarly dread it because it means a lot of hard work and extra hours. However, just like the dentist, the end result is worth the discomfort. Even if you don’t see a sales bump, it’s important to be seen by the public, both as individual companies as well as an industry as a whole. The building trades are often maligned due to some less than reputable enterprises and sensationalized news stories. The Home Show is a great way to present ourselves as the professionals we are! I hope exhibitors take the time to realize how beneficial the Show is to their businesses, and maybe those who don’t exhibit will consider doing so next year. I would also like to extend a thank you to all the volunteers who transported 4,379 lbs. of food from the main entrance to the Food Bank House. Your time and effort is always appreciated. Our March meeting will be at the new Cornhusker Bank at 84th and O Street. I enjoy taking these tours because they represent the tangible outcome of the building permit numbers we see every month. Our next meeting will be at the HBAL office with Ron Petsch from SCC speaking about their Residential Construction program. I hope to see you as we learn about how SCC is helping prepare individuals to fill the needs within our industry.

Thank you to our Food Bank House Volunteers! Tom Barrett Karen Barrett Mary Kay Bielenberg Megan Dreyer Miles Dreyer Kristin Donnelly Nichelle Evans Andrea Forrester
