 Solving a Problem

A few weeks ago, my husband and I met with a general contractor. We talked with this professional about building an addition onto our small home. At this time, he informed us about a problem with our septic tank. We learned we would have to relocate a couple of septic lines before construction could begin on our home. Are you considering building an addition onto your house or business? Before you get too far along in this complex process, think about consulting with someone from a reputable septic service in your area. An expert from a septic service can inform you if your current septic tank will be large enough to accommodate the addition. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most common tasks performed by septic services. Enjoy!

3 Vital Things To Plan When Arranging A Family Reunion

Debra Chapman

Are you planning a family reunion to take place next summer? Are you trying to ensure that everything will be as fun and as enjoyable as possible? Family reunions can be great and something that everyone remembers for years to come. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to come up with everything that is necessary to ensure that your family reunion is a resounding success. Various aspects can be easily forgotten or overlooked in the excitement of knowing that you're going to be seeing relatives that you haven't seen for a while. Some of the things that you need to make sure don't get forgotten include the following: 

Lodgings: Make sure that everyone knows where they're going to be staying ahead of time. Simply saying that each family is going to be responsible for their own hotel needs may not be sufficient. As the organizer, it's up to you to find 2-4 suitable hotels in the area. Relatives who are coming in from out of town may not know which hotels are too far away or are in sketchy locations. Staying at the same hotels also helps everyone to arrange carpools to the family reunion and to various places around town.

Restroom facilities: Whether the main reunion is going to be happening at a relative's large house or at a nearby park, it's important that you make sure that there are sufficient restroom facilities for everyone. This includes renting portable toilets as necessary. When dealing with dozens of adults and children, having only two or three toilets available can be a disaster. Renting portable toilets helps to ensure that there are sufficient facilities for everyone. Modern portable toilets can include handicap-accessible toilets or family toilets for the use of parents with young children. You can discuss your options with portable toilet rental companies, like Five Star Septic Service And Portable Toilet Rentals.

Food and drink:  If your reunion is going to include more than around a dozen people, you need to make plans in regards to eating and drinking. You cannot simply descend on a restaurant of any type, without any warning, and expect everyone to be served in a timely manner. Without any advance notification, everyone will get their food at widely varying times. If you go to a sit-down fine-dining type of restaurant without a reservation, it could be hours before you're able to be seated. On the other hand, if you visit a fast food location, the first few people to order may get their food and finish eating before the last person even has a chance to order.
