Get Kids Off The Couch
Join us at the Spanish Fork Sports Park (Volunteer Drive) on June 18th from 9am - 12pm!
For the second year in a row SERVPRO of Provo / N. Utah County is participating in the Play Unplugged program sponsored by the Spanish Fork / Salem Area Chamber of Commerce and we couldn't be more excited.
The mission of the program is to get kids outside playing rather than wasting their summer in front of the TV. Local businesses sponsor badges that can be collected by kids after they complete the activities associated with them.
Last year SERVPRO sponsored the Marshmallow Hunter! Kids had to build their very own marshmallow guns and then hone their skills at our practice range. We had a pretty good turn out with some pretty decent shooters.
This year SERVPRO is encouraging kids to participate in the jolly ol' game of golf. We're all set up to have a putting green and a mini driving range for kids to practice keeping their heads down and their shoulders squared. We're providing clubs, balls, and tees... silly shorts are optional.
If you've got kids that would like to participate in some fun activities come on down to the Summer Kickoff Party in Spanish Fork (Volunteer Drive Sports Park) on June 18th.
From 9:00 am to 12:00 pm there will be all sorts of attractions, games, prizes and treats! Hopefully we'll see you there!
Myths and Facts
'Tis the day fer the wearin' of the green.
We all know that March 17th is synonymous with avoiding pinches, large amounts of alcohol being consumed, and people demanding physical affection based solely on their heritage.
Did you know that St. Patrick's Day is actually the death anniversary of the first catholic missionary / bishop in Ireland? It wasn’t his first trip to Ireland however, because as a young boy Patrick was captured by Irish pirates and was sold and worked as a farm hand for 6 years before finally returning home where he studied to become a clergyman.
The shamrock is associated with St. Patrick not because it’s lucky, but because he often used it as an illustrative parable to teach the Irish natives about the Catholic concept of the Holy Trinity.
Over the years some facts have been lost in the media and new traditions have been created around St Patrick’s Day. The same thing has happened with mold (which is also a green-ish hue). Mold has been portrayed as a silent killer when in reality it’s just an allergen. Mold is by no means something you want to spread on your corned beef sandwich, but unless you’re allergic to a specific strain you come in contact with you won’t see any permanent damage to your health. It does have an odor to it and it’s usually a sign that there has been some water damage, so it’s best to have a professional look at your situation.
May luck be in your corner and mold!
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
