Happy Friday and welcome back to another edition of TGIF, a special blog post for Fridays!!
Is it just me or does it feel like this the best time of the year right now? The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and everyone seems to have a little extra pep in their step. And why not, the spring is full of wonderful colors, many chances to get outside, and the warm weather brings the best concerts, events, and fun outdoor activities.
Last weekend Heartland Homes pledged to plant one tree for every person that visited our model homes during the Earth Day weekend. Despite the unseasonably cold weather, 137 of you answered our call and in recognition of Earth Day and as a special thank you, we are going to double that number!!! By the end of the year Heartland Homes will plant for our future because of you!!
Tomorrow marks the first day of May and that can only mean one thing: Paint Season!! Time to lay down the drop cloths and bust out the white overalls, but before you do join us for a special PPG Color Trends presentation. We are hosting two events. Both are sold out, but you can still reserve your spot on the waiting list. To learn more about this event follow the link to our previous post: Color Trend Presentation
