South Minneapolis Housing & Home Improvement Fair - March 2009 - Page 3


Welcome W

elcome to the 15th Annual South Minneapolis Housing & Home Improvement Fair! We hope you will enjoy browsing the many exhibits by local contractors, financial institutions, real estate agents, neighborhood associations, non-profit and government agencies. Each of the exhibitors participating in today’s event are committed to maintaining the quality of housing and improving the quality of life in South Minneapolis. While you are here today, we hope that you will take time to attend one of the many quality seminars presented by South High Community Education. The keynote seminar titled “25 Ways to Save More and Spend Less in 2009” will be presented by Star Tribune Dollars & Sense columnist John Ewoldt from 11 a.m. 12:15 p.m., in the auditorium. Other seminars on a variety of topics will take place between 1 - 2:15 p.m. in classrooms on the north side of the exhibit area. New this year is an “Ask the Expert” area where experts from varied fields will answer your questions

directly at the North wall near the kitchen. Don’t forget to enjoy a snack from our tasty new Hot Dog Bar located in the kitchen. Each of the contractors participating in today’s housing fair has maintained a reputation for quality work. The South Minneapolis Housing Fair does not, however, endorse any particular contractor. We recommend that you obtain several bids and check with the City of Minneapolis and/or the Minnesota Department of Commerce to verify if the contractor is licensed, bonded and insured. We also encourage you to ask contractors for references and check them before deciding on a particular contractor. To check on a contractor’s license status, call: • Minneapolis Business Licensing: (612) 673-2080 • Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry: (651) 284-5065 or visit www.doli.state.mn.us The South Minneapolis Housing Fair is a neighborhood event and wouldn’t be possible without the time and efforts of countless volunteers. Please take

time to visit your local neighborhood booth while you are here at the fair. Each neighborhood association has developed unique programs to address local housing needs and may have additional resources for you to consider.
