When people work together great things can happen!
For over a month we have been planning and organizing a charity bbq event to help raise funds and donated items benefiting Herizon House, a not for profit organization who provide free confidential services 24 hours a day and provide a place of safety, support and empowerment for abused women and their children. Herizon House is committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence in the community.
Yesterday was the day of our 2015 Helping Hands Charity BBQ for HopeEvent and although considering the possibility making the difficult decision of cancelling and rescheduling, we decided to move forward with hosting it as planned.
Despite the rain, wind and cooler than normal weather and a very well- built tarp for shelter, we are very grateful to those who volunteered, attend and donated items to make this event a huge success!
We are dedicating this blog to these individuals who have worked incredibly hard at helping us make a difference in our community. This event is just an example of how when people work together, great things can happen!
We are a dedicated team of individuals focused on continuing to find ways to make our communities better and helping those who in difficult times, need help the most.
Our nieces Olivia and Alessia who have been working so hard at helping us create and decorate a donation bin for the Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program. These 2 girls did an INCREDIBLE job and we all had so much fun working together.
Every gift is a gift of hope. Your donation makes a difference in the lives of women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse that are provided a place of safety, support and hope at Herizon House women’s shelter.
You can help the lives of abused women and children in your community.

Flagstone steps, walkways and patios need occasional maintenance and repair, usually to renew the mortar between the stones or in the case of stones laid without mortar, to level those that have tilted or sunk.
The work is not complicated, but it can be strenuous if moving stones is required.
Areas of cracked mortar between flagstones should be repaired. (Individual cracks, unless they are several inches long, can usually be left alone.)
Moisture seeping into cracks and repeatedly freezing and thawing will eventually cause further cracking, and weeds sprouting in the fissures can do the same thing.
Although a thousand dollars might not get you as far as some remodeling shows on television would have you believe, even this small amount can do a lot. This is especially true if your current space functions well-no loose parts or leaks-but is in need of a facelift. Here are some useful ideas to consider:
Keep your towels dry and toasty with a heated towel bar. You can find some for $100 or less.
Upgrade your shower head to one with multiple settings, including a massage or pulsating setting.
Improve your lighting and ventilation with a combination light and exhaust fan. One with a heat setting will keep you from getting chilled when you get out of the shower.
Update towel bars, hooks, toothbrush and toilette paper holders, and cabinet hardware. Add matching shelves to your towels and toiletries.
Replace the vanity with a new wood model that has a stone counter.
Add a new mirror and faucet. Consider keeping your current vanity but replace your toilet and faucet and add a new vinyl floor.
Add a set of sconces on either side of the mirror or medicine cabinet.
