It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is this weekend and many fall activities like school and sports are beginning. We celebrate American workers, including our own, and the contributions workers in the United States have made to our great nation. 🛠️
Terri and I are thrilled to share that our fourth grandchild (and third granddaughter) was born a few weeks ago in Nashville! 👶 Our son, Kyle, and his wife, McKinsay, are the proud parents of Mayla Jane Burnside, born August 8 at 7:08am, 5 lb 12 oz, 18.75” long. She is tiny and beautiful and a true miracle. We couldn't love her more! 💕

I hope the holiday weekend allows each of you to spend quality time with those you love, and the opportunity to let them know!

We had the privilege of delivering many baby items collected in our office and a check for $500 to the new Pregnancy Solutions office in Port Charlotte. They were extremely grateful for our generosity and care.

We are very proud of the way our ‘communities of givers‘ are reaching out to our community and making a positive impact. Thank you to the members of our staff who continue to seek and meet needs as we solve pest problems.
