President's Message
November 2016


Hello Friends,

On November 8, we held our annual product show at the Plumber’s Hall and what a great night it was! There was a lot going on this year. We had around 20 vendors showcasing the latest technologies in the plumbing field, the L.U. 130 Turkey Raffle, and flu shots! I want to thank all the vendors and members who helped with this event. Brian Mazzocchi did a great job as usual, coordinating the whole event. It takes a lot to host an event like this with over 200 people shuffling through this event. The vendors went above and beyond this year, with raffle prizes ranging from big screen TVs, sporting event tickets, tools, and other great plumbing related products. It was a great night and everything ran smoothly, thank you all again!

Winter is fast approaching, and don't forget there's a few things you need to do around your home. Reverse your ceiling fans so that warm air near the ceiling will be pushed down. Turn off exterior faucets. Nothing is worse than a flooded home from a problem that could be easily avoided. Be sure to check your outside drainage areas, unless of course, you would like an ice skating rink in the yard. Insulate your water pipes. This will not only help them from freezing but it will help on your energy bills. Make sure everyone in your home knows where your water shutoff is located, this will really come in handy if a pipe bursts to limit damage.

Get them while they last, the 2017 Union Sportsmen's Alliance 52 gun raffle calendars are going fast! Contact me for details.

Sincerely, Randy Olson
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter
