Keep your pipes warm and happy

Greetings Daviess County resi-dents! I hope you have been able to stay warm and out of the snow and ice we’ve been having a lot of this winter. Seems Mother Nature is reminding us this year of what winter is like after having a couple of mild winters in the books over the past few years. In my news column this time I would like to share about upcoming programs and preventing and thawing frozen pipes. Don’t hesitate to call, stop by, or email me if I can be of assistance. Until next time, stay dry, safe, and warm.

Parent’s Night Out Series Starting Soon

Are you having trouble communicating with your kids? Is it always a battle to get them to bed or to clean their rooms? Take time out of your busy schedule and invest some time in your family by learning some new communication and discipline techniques at the next “Parent’s Night Out” series sponsored by Purdue Extension with funding from the Daviess County Community Foundation.
