builders buZZ BY Nick GreeN Green's Plumbing and Heating President, LRBA The home show was awesome! I'd like to thank all of our hard working volunteers that helped the show be such a success. Everyone had a very professional and good set-up, and we had some great seminars. Attendance was up, and I hope everyone had some good leads for business this upcoming season. Earlier in March I ventured down to St. Paul for Builder's Day on the Hill. I met with Senator Kent Eken, who as always was very receptive and firmly on our side. I also met with Representative Paul Marquart, and thanks to the FM Builders association was considerably more receptive to what we had to say. When we meet with our legislators at the capitol it adds a personal factor to the issues relevant to our industry. It insures our voices are heard through the chatter to help keep toxic legislation from interfering with our businesses and livelihoods. At the State level we continue to fight on against issues such as the sprinkler mandate and business to business taxes.

Amy Thielen with the audience at the Home Show. Our March meeting was on Radon with Dan Trantor from the Department of Health was well attended, with lots of information on Radon which is a big topic especially for homes that are being sold. Dan Trantor meeting speaker

V iew MY Brenda Eidenschink Hello everyone, Well March is over, for us at the office we can start winding down a little. We had 1357 people come to the show. I would like to say a special Thank You to everyone that contributed to putting on a great show. We have our Home Show Sponsor – Anderson Brothers Home Show Banner Sponsors – Olson Pool & Spas’, Hough Inc, Don Tietz Construction & B & M Electric Foltz Builders – for having our banner displayed on their property. Food Network Sponsors – Cullen’s Home Center, Whirlpool, Seven Sisters Spirits, Twin City Garage Door & KDLM Bag Sponsors for Admisssions – Bell State Bank, Bremer Bank & Midwest Bank Pro Systems- use of their TV for the cooking demo.

If I have missed anyone, my apologies. As you can see this is a group effort to put this show on. Most of these people have helped out for years. Please consider helping out next year if everyone pitches in a little it would lighten the load. Also I would like to thank all of the members of the association for your donation to the silent auction. If all of the money comes in, we should have raised over $8500. We already have 5 scholarship applications to look at and to contribute too. Our next meeting is coming up on April 10th and Anderson Brothers will be our sponsor for that night. Tom has told me he has a fun night planned for you. Please make sure to rsvp to us at the office. If you are thinking of having a trap shoot team in May, please let us know also. Have a great month... Brenda Eidesnchink

Letter from the editor March was a very busy month getting ready for the Home & Sport Show. All the booths on the Home Show side was sold out in February, and we had a long list if anyone cancelled. Brenda will be contacting everyone about securing their booths for next year before long, so if some on the list want to have a booth, they will have an opportunity. Brenda did an awesome job, and several people told SHARON me that as well as how great the show was. I really thought WESTERHOLM Amy Thielen from the Food Networks was a great idea and brought in more people. Next up is the meeting on April 10th that Anderson Brothers is sponsoring. Don’t miss it. Then May 3rd will be the Trap shoot and our annual picnic. That will be our last time together till September. I think it is a fun time and those that attend enjoy coming. Be sure and get your team signed up. I will be gone to California next week where it should be a lot warmer. Not long after I am back I will be out with another surgery, so the office will be closed a couple of times on Tuesdays. Then I should be in great shape and ready to start on the next course of events. Till next month! Sharon

DO YOU shOOt tRaP? waNt tO COme tRY? We have our Annual Trap Shoot and Picnic on Saturday, May 3rd, from 9 - 1. It’s a great time to get together and just have fun. We sell sponsorships for the stations for $50.00. If you are a sponsor of a hole you can come up with a fun idea for that station and we will need your sign. In the past we had a toilet that the shooters had to sit on, another had a lampshade they had to wear and so on. Please think about it and come up with an idea. Be sure and let Brenda know if you will have a team or just want to shoot. If you don’t shoot trap, come for our picnic on May 3rd. Bring a dish to pass. The LRBA provides hamburgers, brats and hot dogs. You can also let Brenda know if you are coming for the picnic so we know how much food is needed. Cost for a team is $125.00 or single is $25.00. There is usually openings to get on a team. Shooting starts at 9:00 a.m.
