Get Prepared For Storm Season Right Now

Get Prepared For Storm Season Right Now

Spring is here, and with it storms and tornadoes. Now is the time to prepare for whatever Mother Nature throws our way. An Emergency Supply Kit is a good place to begin.
An Emergency Supply Kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.

Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them.
You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
Keep our number handy as well, 734-721-5699. If you suffer storm damage to your home or property, we can be there to take immediate action. We can help minimize secondary damages caused by severe storms.

Recommended Items to Include in an Emergency Supply Kit:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather
  • Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
  • Local maps
  • Phone charges with adapters to allow charging in an automobile
Home Prices Are Up, So Is Demand, Now’s the Time to Sell

Home Prices Are Up, So Is Demand, Now’s the Time to Sell

By Michele Jarrait
Realtor at Coldwell Banker

The March statistics are in for home sales in Garden City. Mirroring other suburbs, fewer homes came on the market in March of 2016 [43], compared to March 2015 [62]. What does that mean for the consumer? Shortages drive price sales up! Last year’s Median YTD [year to date] sales price was $75,868; the 2016 Median YTD in Garden City is $82,500! If you are thinking of selling your home, now is the time! Give me a call at 313-673-5806; let’s get your home on the market! If you’re a buyer, home prices are going up and there is no indication interest rates are going to do anything but go up as well! I’d love to help with your real estate needs!

GCBA Closes Out the Year With the Annual Holiday Mixer

GCBA Closes Out the Year With the Annual Holiday Mixer

Friday evening the GCBA closed out a successful 2015 with its final event of the year, we had our 2nd Annual Holiday Party, hosted by Gordon Chevrolet. Members invited Garden City business owners, potential members & supporters to the party. There was plenty of food and drink, and entertainment was provided by Kelly Walker Miller. Everyone even had a chance to get behind the microphone and sing a little karaoke. I was amazed at all the talent we have right here in Garden City!

I want to thank Gordon Chevrolet for opening up their showroom for us, and the donation of food and items to raffle off. A special thanks to Sheri Barber and her husband Bill for all your hard work in making this party such a huge success. It was amazing!

Thanks to Judy and the staff from The Golden Feather Restaurant for bringing your broasted chicken and all the extras. It was delicious!

And a huge thanks to all of the party goers for their generous donations of food for the Garden City Home Food Pantry, and toys for the Toys for Tots campaign. The collection boxes were over flowing!

In closing, we were happy to welcome some new members to the GCBA, including Garden City Hospital, Red Wing Shoes and You’ve Got Maids just to name a few. Thank you.

If you are a small business, large business, home based business, organization or someone who would like to just be an advocate for our business community, than please consider joining the GCBA. Become involved in some great events and help promote our business community. We are “business owners committed to working together.”

Join us at our next GCBA meeting, January 8th, 9am at the Straight Farmhouse Museum in the Grand Parlor. 6221 Merriman Rd. We look forward to seeing you!
