Jo treated us just like her own kids. It is scary moving to a new area and trying to buy a house! It is good to know you have someone that has your best intrest at heart!
It was hard for me to take the family dog that we adopted when my son was 5 months old to the "pound"! We had just moved into a rental house and were no longer able to keep him. I was afraid that our dog would be put to sleep, but the workers assured me that he would get adopted asap. The workers were all so loving and assuring, it made that hard task a little easier. We are in the process of buying a house, and one of the first things on my "to do" list is to head back over to this shelter and adopt a dog!
I like to go to Big Lots to browse and see what they have that week. You have to know your prices though, because sometimes you can find a better deal elsewhere. I found a camping set for my 3yr old son that was the best deal around. They sometimes have neat lamps, picture frames, and other home accessories. Like I said browse, but beware of your prices.
Need I say more, a 24 hour pharmacy! After rushing my son to the doctor's office and the doctor describing how vital it was for him to start his prescription right away, I was panicked to find the pharmacy I usually used was closed! Then someone directed me to Walgreen's pharmacy that is open 24 hours. What a relief!
Cato has what's in style THIS season and for very reasonable prices. They have a great selection of plus sized clothing. They also have shoes, accessories, and adorable home accents. I bought my favorite pair of jeans here, and we all know how hard it is to find a favorite pair of jeans! The sales associates I've encountered were all very helpful!
We looked into renting a box at the post office and found that renting a box at Pakmail was the same price, but the benefit is that we can receive Fedex, UPS and all other mail services at this location. I direct all of our packages here because I don't have to worry about being home to receive the package when it is shipped to my house, and I don't have to worry about the delivery service leaving packages by my door where they could be stolen or damaged by the hot weather. We will always have a Pakmail box!
Roosevelt is a school of choice, meaning that parents must choose to send their child. The school helps children who struggle in a typical classroom curriculum to develop skills to take out into the work force, and teach them work ethics that will help them get and keep employment. They offer horticultural sciences, culinary services, construction among other specialties. They have fundraisers for the school by marketing their skills... the public can purchase plants from the horticultural students, bbq meats, chocolates, and order catering from the culinary students, and purchase wood furniture from the wood working students. The teachers really care about their students, and their greatest reward is seeing their students succeed!
A church that is alive! Everyone feels like family! New Life offers plenty of fellowships for all different ages, programs for children, and many activities for teenagers. Roy Rehberg is the youth pastor and really has a heart for seeing the teenagers grow in the Lord. If you are in the Auburndale area, check out New Life!
I have been a Sam's fan for years. It is great to have the ability to buy things in bulk, especially for small business owners, or for churches. I've seen better produce sections than the one here, but it is probably this area... I've not found any produce that has impressed me... If you haven't tried the Sam's pizza and ice cream at the front of the store, you're missing out, the food is good for fast food and super cheap!
I am not a shopper at all, but I was relieved to find a vast selection of plus sized clothing at prices much more reasonable than shopping in a specialty store in the mall. The sales accociates who helped me were extremely helpful! They had a great sale, and I was very pleased with all of my purchases!
