Dave Megge, director of Kitchens and Baths at Carter Lumber, has a suggestion for homeowners who are thinking of doing a remodeling project: Gather ideas from magazines or online sources and build a scrapbook of styles, colors and features that you like. That way, a designer will get to know your tastes and preferences and be able to give you more personalized advice. Dave and his colleagues will be at the Carter Lumber booth at the Akron Home & Flower Show Feb. 24-26 at the John S. Knight Center. He’ll also be giving presentations at the show on how to build your dream kitchen. For more information about Carter Lumber, visit the website.
Russ and Connie Snyder, members and co-founders of the Silver Creek Treasure Hunters, talked about the array of coins, jewelry, artifacts and other valuables that they and fellow treasure hunters have found in the area. The club meets at the Biery House in Norton. To become a member, just pay $15 to join the Norton Historical Society, which runs the Biery House. Club members who find historical artifacts in Norton give them to the society; they keep all the rest of their finds. For more information, visit the Silver Creek Treasure Hunters Facebook page or call Russ at 330.786.6453. You also can ask Russ about treasure hunting while he mans the Tucker Building booth at the Akron Home & Flower Show at the end of this month.
Rachel Stevenson, a student in public relations and marketing at Kent State University, joined us for the show today and did a great job asking questions and even filling in for Andy by doing the introduction after one of the breaks. We hope to have her back sometime soon.
