This Agent Gives Toilet Paper as a Close Gift

Every once in a while you meet a client or clients who touch your heart. Most of the time you needed
them more than they needed you.

Although I may still be “new” in the business, every transaction makes me grow and my knowledge of the business becomes more clear. In this particular transaction I learned about loans and how they can affect you and the client. I do find it important to do research and ask around before choosing your loan officer.

Today, I had the honor of presenting a set of keys to a very happy new home owner. This was one of those we hit it off right away and knew we would be friends forever type of clients… I’m not kidding!

These 2 pictures are are my happy moments in Real Estate. I will always remember the client who said he just used his “last dime” on his new house and wouldn’t be able to afford toilet paper… (You had to be there, it’s an inside joke and yes I really did buy him toilet paper!)

Congrats Carmen and welcome to Lake Arrowhead, I look forward to many fun days and nights in the future with you and Penny!

Mountian Top Days Parade ~ Running Springs

Who doesn’t love a good parade!  This Friday night August 1, 2014 there is a parade in Running Springs at 6:30.

OH AND I WILL BE WALKING IN THIS ONE WITH MY SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM, SO LOOK FOR THE ONES IN BRIGHT ORANGE!

Here is a cute blog about the parade from: http://joanmoseley.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/everybody-loves-a-parade-so-come-to-the-r-s-parade-on-august-1/

The world’s biggest parade is coming to Running Springs on Friday, August 1. Well, that’s a slight exaggeration but I knew it would get your attention.

The town’s biggest parade, however, may be more accurate and when it comes down Hilltop Blvd it should be a-maz-ing! Parade Chairman Jennifer Kellum has put hours and hours into organizing this parade and after last year’s Mountain Days Parade (that was the biggest in decades) she’s got another great parade planned for Friday night, August 1.

This year, to help the Running Springs Area Chamber of Commerce pay well over $1500 for the parade permits from Caltrans and the county and to pay hundreds of dollars for required help from the CHP this will be the first time in the parade’s long history that we are asking our parade participants to pitch in $5 to help defray some of the costs.

For the first time the parade has a “title” With so many things that have happened to our community in the past several years the title, “We’re Still Here!” pays homage to our community members and organizations who have helped each other when the huge landslide took out Hwy. 330 a few years ago following a horrendous storm. We’ve had a tough time financially with the down turn in the economy and several other factors that we have no control over. However, we’re mountain people and mountain people figure out how to survive when times are tough….whether that means the weather, the roads, the economy or just plain old “life.”

Don't these children look fabulous! You think they had fun being in last year's parade?  Hopefully they'll be in this one too!!

Thank you Joan Moseley for the blog, I could not find any other info on the parade except from your site, your commitment to community did not go unnoticed!

“A Vintage Circus Extravaganza” Lake Arrowhead Le Grande Picnic July 27, 2014

The annual Le Grand Picnic, July 27th, will be held in the MCH Rose Garden, overlooking beautiful Lake Arrowhead.

The event draws over 300 guests for an afternoon of music, great food and the opportunity to bid on both live and silent auction items. For the past two years, we have also included a Reverse Auction portion, structured to raise funds specifically for a much needed hospital equipment item.  This year the Reverse Auction will be raising money for an Omnicell Drug Dispensary Equipment to improve drug safety and security for Mountains Community Hospital patients. This single dose dispensing system protects patients and ensures correct dosage. The Omnicell Dispenser securely stores medications, so nurses only have access to the specific quantity requested. Local restaurants participate by donating food for our guests.

They provided lovely displays of their food specialities, to the delight of our guests. Tickets are $75 per person. all Susie Stuart at 909-436-3210 to inquire or make a reservation!
