T

he beautiful weather on Memorial Day Weekend might have kept some people away from the Truckee Home Show but the CATT booth was plenty busy! During the two days of the show, approximately 300 CATT Building & Remodeling Guides were given out and a new record was hit—60 Job to Bid forms were given to local homeowners seriously thinking about a remodeling project! Big thanks to JD Hoss (JD Hoss Hardwoods and Carpet) for interviewing CATT Executive Director Pat Davison on live radio at the show. JD owns KTKE 101.5, a Truckee FM radio station, and was very generous with the airtime for CATT. Pat talked about the importance of using CATT members for construction or remodel projects and also described some upcoming CATT activities. And thanks are also due to Meridian Concrete for providing CATT carpenter pencils— these pencils are always a curiosity to those who don’t know what they are and eagerly sought by those who do.
