One thing that many homebuyers will need is Homeowners Insurance.  Where do you start?  Certainly you can ask friends and families for a referral.   I can recommend a fabulous agent. I will admit I am one of those people who doesn't adapt to change in my personal life very well, so I hadn't really given much thought to shopping around to see if I am getting the best rates.  A very dear friend of mine began a career with Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance, and asked for my business.   Not only can she offer Homeowners policies, but automobile, renters, life insurance and more. I did have her review the coverage's we had with a competitor and provide me with what she could do for me.  I was shocked with the savings, it was a no brainer, to switch from my previous agent of 15 years to Teresa Ca...

Well it's Halloween once again.  And I no longer have little ones at home (the picture above is of my kids in 1993), so I am looking forward to all of the little Trick or Treaters that will show up at the door tonight. Last year our standout trick or treater was Elvis!  Once we dropped the candy in his bag, his response was "Thank you, Thank you very much"  & he had it down!  We also had the usual array of ghosts, goblins, witches, devils etc.  Fortunately the weather is going to cooperate, it will be warm enough for the kids to display their costumes, without the winter parka!  And for those of you who live in the Beech Grove area, be sure to take you kids to the Beech Grove Senior Center, located at 602 Main Street in Beech Grove for a Costume Contest.  The contest is from 5:30 to 6:...

The annual Beech Grove Promoters Club fall festival started last night.  We have had great weather, so hopefully there will be many visitors to the event. I did want to make you aware of a Food Drive which is taking place during the festival. Bill Boone, a fellow Greater Beech Grove Chamber of Commerce member runs Servants Heart. The goal for the food drive is to collect 10000 food items in 4 days.  Food items that are needed are canned vegatables, fruits, soups, peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti sauce, canned meat, pasta meals and cereal just to name a few. Servants Heart served their 2000th family in July of this year.  They serve an average of 250-300 families per month, and they need our help. So if you visit the Fall Festival this year, be sure to bring a few non-perishable items an...

I wanted to share with you information about a wonderful business on the Southside of Indianapolis.   As a member of the Greater Beech Grove Chamber of Commerce, I have the opportunity to meet many different individuals.  At our monthly meeting in June, Melody Stevens, the Executive Director of Handi-Capable Hands Incorporated spoke to the group. I was impressed with what I had learned about the business, and asked Melody for the opportunity to come in and meet with her, take some photos of the associates, and learn more about what they do.  I was able to do so on Wednesday, July 2nd.  On this day, the group had just completed a 20000 piece mailing.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and meeting with the associates.  I was greeted with sincere smiles and handshakes.  After taking several sh...

    As a member of the Greater Beech Grove Chamber of Commerce, I diligently try to attend all functions.  Today was our monthly meeting and we had a fabulous speaker, Melody Stevens from Handi-Capable Hands, Inc.  Watch for an upcoming post about what ther services she & Handi-Capable Hands provide.    Today I learned about some various programs that our provided by our local library.  The library has a Summer Reading Program for children.  You will also find that the library has therapy dogs that come in for children to read to.  This is a great program for children, who struggle with reading, and get discouraged by adults or other children correcting them.  The kids can snuggle up and read to the dog, and the dog is not going to correct them.  This is a great confidence builder for c...
