10/11/2012 9:26:00 AM Take time to thank your local firemen
This week is Fire Prevention Week. It’s a week to honor the men and women who donate their time to ensure our safety in our homes and our businesses. These people risk their lives day in and day out. Oh and did I mention that they are volunteers? That’s right, every one of our local firemen are volunteers and all work at other full time jobs. Being a fireman is a thankless job...until Saturday. You can actually thank them in person. Saturday is Center City and Lindstrom’s Fire Prevention Open House. You are invited to come meet the firemen, climb on the fire trucks and be a fireman for a day. Center City’s open house is held at the fire hall and Lindstrom’s will be at City Hall this year. Chisago City Fire Department will be visiting Lakeside Elementary and Chisago Lakes Primary schools on Friday. There the kids will get to climb on the trucks and even squirt a real fire hose.
+ + + + + + + + + How many times have you gone to get your weekend Search Shopper and it is just too cold to walk out and pick it up. Or maybe it is raining and you are toasty warm inside. I have the perfect solution for you. How would you like the Search Shopper sent directly to your computer? I have been monitoring our website numbers and it seems there are a ton of people looking at the Search Shopper online each week. We have decided to make it easier than that for you! How would you like a Search Shopper sent directly to your computer at home or at work? We have made it easy as pie for you.. All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you on the list to get your Search Shopper electronically. You still get all the great deals each and every week and you save a tree. Obviously printing is eventually heading to electronic publishing, heck it already has in many areas, it is time for the Search Shopper to join the technology revolution. We will send you a email every Friday afternoon letting you know your Search is ready and waiting for you. Here is the best part, you will be getting to see the Search before it is even printed. How is that for fresh deals? It doesn't get anymore instantaneous than that.
+ + + + + + + + + Not sure if this is necessarily a good thing or not, but Wild Mountain opened its doors for the ski and snowboard season last weekend. Of course it is good news, but that just means snow in our yards will soon follow. Wild Mountain is the first ski resort to officially open this fall. Quite an accomplishment! This is the second time that Wild Mountain has been honored as the first ski resort to open in the nation. Wild Mountain has always been known for opening early. In fact, they have been the first to open in Minnesota for the last 35 years. Congratulations to Wild Mountain!
+ + + + + + + + + Please look in your Search Shopper this weekend. We have put together a really neat Education tab for you. If you have children that will be looking for post highschool education, this is the piece for you. If you are entering the job market in mid-life, it is a great piece for you as well. You will find great tips about choosing the right field and school for your skills. Please give it a read. If you need another copy, just give us a call at 651-257-5115.
