►   Happy Birthday to Jim on Monday, August 21st!

►    Customer Feedback:  Bruce M. of Bennington says, “The week before Labor Day weekend (of course!) I noticed that the pool filter pump has failed.  The filter and pump were already installed when we bought our house in 1993, so they were ancient.  I called Seasonal Specialty and spoke to Kristine.  She told me I could come in and look at some replacement equipment options.  I decided to replace both the filter and pump, given their age so she helped me pick some new ones out.  Kristine then scheduled a service appointment for installation of the new equipment.  The next Friday (two days later), Paul and Ryan showed up and did a great job removing the old filter and pump and installing the new ones.  Everything has been working great since.  From start to finish, your people all did a wonderful, professional job.  I couldn’t be more pleased.  THANK YOU!”

►   Advertising, specials, department promotions, and sales continue from last week: August Clearance Sale and Final Sale. This month’s color is Light Pink.

►    Have a great time at the party tonight (Saturday 8/19).  Remember, we can’t cancel for rain, but you can go there, have the barbeque and ice cream in the tent and get passes for the activities on a sunny day.

►   Pool Closing Schools are beginning.  Wednesday August 23rd is the first Above Ground Closing class and August 30th is the first Inground Closing class.  Please encourage people to register.

►   Submitted by Kristine: Reminder!  No steps should be in front of hot tubs with water in them!  I work a small amount of hours and twice in the last 2 months I have had to move steps that were in front of the Spirit and 545.  Please keep an eye out!

►   Submitted by Anne-Marie: Sean from Uno’s, who I’ve worked with on the weekend catered meals for many summers, has offered to buy us a free lunch!  I’m planning to have it brought it on Friday, August 25th.  It will be a surprise selection!
