The words About Us in a fancy font
About us is, for the moment, Carl and Jane and maybe a few others as soon as we get permission to add their names.  If you like to help others, mention our low prices on advertising and think about your volunteerism matching up with ours to see what fits and where.  You could be someone’s hero and not know it yet.

Ad Sponsorships – low cost, helps a nonprofit, helps your community:  We’ve been selling ad sponsorships since 2009 so businesses can get their name and phone number on our placemats while paying a reduced price.  If all you need is to keep your name out there, you can show your community spirit by promoting a nonprofit’s event,  mission statement, or need for volunteers.  We’re always looking for volunteers, for THEM!  Call our office to find out about volunteer opportunities in our service area… there are lots to choose from if you know where to look and we’ll try to help you find a good match.

About Carl and Jane: Carl was born and raised in Mercer County, PA, moved to California for twenty-some years and raised a great daughter, then developed the itch to move back to Pennsylvania.  Jane was raised in Karns City, worked for the federal government and large corporations in Hagerstown, MD, also world wide.  The two of us met through an Internet dating service and, it’s true, sometimes it does work out well.  One part of it is knowing what we are looking for and not being ok with anything less.  Jane and I agree that God was our matchmaker.

In the picture with us are Joey V and Lynda Reich from our Christian Business Partners networking group that meets every Thursday morning in Butler.  Joey is with Life Choices based in the Kittanning office and Lynda plus her family own and operate Honeysweet Apiaries in Butler County.

Jane and I volunteer a lot.  Our favorite organizations to volunteer with are Butler Co Humane Society, Community Family Fun Day (opioid awareness and recovery), Kids Day America, Helping Butler Co (Facebook group)

    Hi Carl,

    I spoke with you earlier this morning and I haven’t received the email yet, I checked both folders. Wanted you to know. Also I was doing a little research in the Oakmont area and Riverview High school put on a play and to help the cost they did placemats to the local restaurants. Here is the link, anyways when I called they said that if its not in their budget they won’t be able to do it again this year.

    Look at the post from Jan 24th of last year. Call the number on on the ad, they will be doing fiddler on the roof. This may get your foot in the door down there and we would love to advertise for it if oyu pick it up.

    Carl, Is your Community Calendar back up on the website yet? I had a lot of repeating events that I would leave on and just go in and edit the dates. I hope I don’t have to start from scratch with everything, like our bi-monthly Care and Share Shop, the bi-annual Pancake Dinners, the annual Thanksgiving Dinners, the semi-annual Deli Day, the seasonal ministerial events, the annual MLK Service in Jan, I don’t even know if I remember my password since it’s been so long. I’ve missed using the local4all site.
