NKBA Rocky Mountain Chapter Newsletter  
October 1, 2015 
Dear NKBA Members and Friends,
Did you know that October is Kitchen and Bath Month? The NKBA created Kitchen & Bath Month in 1982. With children back in school and families not yet overwhelmed by the flurry of activity around the holidays, October is the most popular time of year for homeowners to remodel their kitchens and baths. If you are an NKBA member, there is a plethora of social media marketing material on the National's website for you to use as a new marketing message.

Thank you!
Melody Highman
VP of Communications
