Observed the last Monday in May, Memorial Day serves as a time to reflect on the brave men, women and service animals who have fought and passed while defending our country’s core values. Fighting to protect our citizen’s rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and freedom of speech, these heroic individuals made the ultimate sacrifice. While as of late Americans have celebrated this day by throwing barbeques, shopping closeout sales and traveling over long weekends, Memorial Day is meant as a time to reflect and honor members of the military who have passed while protecting us.
In honor of the fallen who have served our country!

Warmer weather brings with it an excuse to take a dip into a pool, ocean or lake! In addition to brushing up on swim safety, having family members trained in CPR can be crucial in the event of an unlikely emergency. You should also to be vigilant against unwelcomed pests and mosquitos lurking near pools of standing water around your home or outdoor space. Walking, not running, around wet/damp areas is always a good way to prevent injury to family and friends. Using paper or plastic drinkware around the pool or deck areas will eliminate the risk of broken glass and related potential injuries. Finally, maintaining a buddy system is critical in helping prevent avoidable water accidents at home or elsewhere.
Remember to have fun & be safe!

Spring Savings Home Maintenance
Take advantage of the longer daylight hours this springtime and tackle some much-needed home upkeep! Our homes are often our biggest investment, so routine maintenance should be performed to keep it happy and healthy. Open up your windows, “Marie Kondo” (clean out) your closets and show your house a little love, both inside and out! A plan could be to start outside and work your way inward. Rake away leaves and clear debris to see if your home is in good condition or has any cracks around its foundation. Be proactive and catch problem spots before they present issues in the future. Also, be sure to check pipes, heater/AC lines, dryer vents and windows as these can all allot for unnecessary wasted utilities which can present a cost savings for you, the homeowner! Happy Spring cleaning to you!
