12 — Say you saw it in The Real Estate Browser of Lynchburg — Volume 10 Number 5 America the Great By Drew Howard , President, HomePro, Inc. It is that time of year to start planning vacations, weekend getaways and simple relaxation around the home. We as Americans sometimes forget what a great country we live in. I know we are privileged to live in the Commonwealth of Virginia. To share the rich history of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and countless others who laid the groundwork for what we enjoy today. I typically write articles on home inspec- tions, radon testing, mold testing/indoor air quality, home maintenance, and safety pre- vention around the home. This month as we approach another summer, I would challenge you to get out of your comfort zone and help a neighbor. There are many elderly people that may not have the extra money to have the shrubs trimmed, yard mowed, or gut- ters cleaned out. Take a few extra minutes and see if they have exterior lights that might need new light bulbs. There might be that one chore that they have neglected simply because they did not want to ask anyone. On a Saturday afternoon take a summer meal to them. On Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, fly Old Glory. Take pride in your home, neighborhood, and community. Never look down on someone for the neighborhood or home they live in. All homes share the same purpose, and that is to raise families in this great country we call America. Take time this summer to get to know your neighbors. Be that neighbor who sets the example for others to follow. America is not dead, and the human heart still has compassion. If you have any home related ques- tions please do not hesitate to call me. Consultation over the phone is always free. Have a safe and enjoyable summer. I look forward to helping you anyway I can.
