Hello, April!

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
― John Holmes


Spring is among us!  Lots of warm, sunny days await us.  This month we have a feature on our Biscuit Baker participants from Empire, exciting news form Florida, and I think the quote above is a good teaser for our April Spotlight.  With summer coming up, I know there are all kinds of fun community activities planned, so please send them our way!  Pictures are welcomed too!

As always, thanks for reading.

Top of the Mornin’ To Ya!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!  I can’t believe it’s mid-March already!  Lots of great happenings coming to you this month.  We have a new Spotlight, a volunteer story from the Boulder office, and some really cute little league guys hanging out with our Happy Star! Please keep sending these stories our way as I would be happy to share them.  Wishing you all a fun and safe celebration today and hopefully everyone is wearing their green!

Welcome 2017!

“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all  who ever have.”

— Margaret Mead


Happy New Year!  I know 2017 is well underway now, but I hope everyone’s year is off to great start.  After reflecting on the wonderful accomplishments throughout the company during 2016, we have decided to give 2017’s newsletter a bit of a theme.  This will be the year of Philanthropy.  We are constantly hearing about regions, stores and individuals who are doing wonderful things for their communities and we want to focus on those stories this year!  We are starting out with a touching story about giving and hope, a Spotlight from one of our own who is incredibly involved in his community and a congratulations to a new store opening and to those who have given many years of service to our company.  Throughout this year if you hear of any great stories that apply to our philanthropy theme, please pass them along.  Thank you for reading!

Happy Holidays!

Glowing lights in the dark.

Wow, this year has really flown by!  As we come to the end of 2016, we can look back on a remarkable year.  We have had another successful run as a company, done our best to give back to the community, and also had a lot of fun along the way.  You will get to meet another special someone this month, celebrate anniversaries, take a look at some of our community involvement, and check out a surprise visitor to some of our stores.  We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we are sending peace and happiness to all of you out there this holiday season!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello October


I couldn’t agree more!  What an amazing time of year. Pumpkins, falling leaves, scarecrows, spooky gatherings, and my favorite- boots and sweater weather. Tune in this month for a new store opening, hurricane news from SC, an interesting Spotlight, and exciting baby announcements!  We hope everyone is having a wonderful fall so far and that you all enjoy a very Happy Halloween!  Feel free to send in your creative costume pictures.  As always, thank you for reading.
