Merry Christmas Everyone! As I write this newsletter it is so hard to believe that another year has passed. We truly have been blessed this year. I want to personally thank all of you for those blessings. It is because of all of you that we have our Annual Customer Appreciation Bar-b-Que. We postponed it in November due to me having a heart cath. We have now set the date for Friday, January 23rd. It will be a drop in from 4:30-9:30pm. Dinner will be Lewis’ famous barbeque, cole slaw, baked beans, chips, hawaiian bread, sweet and unsweet tea, beer and wine and coffee. So make sure you come to our shop at 707 S. Pinehurst St Unit N, Aberdeen, NC. All the employees will be there and you can just sit and learn more about us and them.
Holiday Events: We will be closed for Christmas Day the 25th and 26th and New Year’s Day , January 1st. We will be doing services the days before and the days after to catch up. (ie: If you service is normally done on Thursday it may be done on the Monday or Tuesday before or the day immediately afterwards). I hope this makes sense to everyone.
Contract Renewals & Payment Questions: We are working on getting contract renewals out and should have them out to everyone within the next week. If you have any questions about them please feel free to call or email me at email@example.com. You can also call Janet or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, she is our bookkeeper and is the one that you can call to set up payment arrangements and billing questions.
Website: Our website has had a new facelift. New pictures of some of our houses have been added to it, yours maybe on there as well! Why don’t you go visit it www.littlemissmowitallnc.com. You can sign up for our facebook, twitter, pinterest, google, and or instagram page and be registered for a free drawing! If you go on our facebook page and register for our newsletter on there you can enter for our $200.00 gift certificate!
Rate increase: We will be increasing our rates by 3% this year. This is 1-2% less than other companies in our areas are increasing, for some of you this is the first time that we have raised our rates in 3 years, please call us if this is going to be a hardship on you. We would rather work with you than lose you as a customer.
Did you know? Did you know that we do outdoor lighting? If you have ever wondered what your house would look like with professional lighting at night call us. We are offering a free demo for select pre-qualified homeowners.* Call Dana to schedule an appointment at 910-944-9412
Moore County Landfill: The Moore county landfill will start charging a fee for dumping of debris beginning January 1, 2015. This fee is $15.00 per ton. We will have no other choice than to charge this fee to our customers. If you live in an area that allows us to place debris at the side of the road, we will not charge a fee to you. If we have to pick this debris up the rate will be $3.00 per service date. Some of the towns will be issuing receptacles. If we can fit the debris into the receptacles we will be more than happy to put it into them, however please be aware of the following:
A. If there is not a receptacle available on the day of your service we will charge a $3.00 service charge. It is each homeowner’s responsibility to make sure that the receptacle is outside where we have access. Please make sure that it is notated on the CONTACT INFORMATION SHEET WHERE THE RECEPTACLE IS LOCATED.
B. If the debris does not fit into the receptacle and we have to remove the excess debris there will be a $3.00 service charge.
C. We will not put the receptacle out at the road. We will put it back in the same place where it was left for us.
D. We will not bundle sticks nor separate debris. This takes labor which costs money and will cost more than the $3.00 disposal fee.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this and we can explain our thoughts and reasons. All HOA’s and Commerical Accounts will be assessed differently. Please schedule a meeting with Dana to discuss options if an agreement has not already been reached.
The Izzy Foundation provides services and support to those families with children who have debilitating diseases. The Foundation hopes to help families live, love, laugh and play. The Izzy Foundation is a nonprofit organization [501(c)(3)] based in Providence, RI.
For those of you that do not know Dr. Kurt Wohlrab, MD, with Pinehurst Surgical Clinic, was Izzy’s Uncle. This little girl touched this community greatly. It is through her and her Uncle Kurt and Aunt Julie and that the Annual Izzy Palooza is able to help many charities including the Sandhills Childrens Center. We are working with The Izzy Foundation & the Childrens Center in hopes of redoing the playground this coming summer. If you would like more information about this great charity please visit the izzyfoundation.org. We will be having a Donation Jar in January at the Bar-b-Que as well.
Do you have a Charity that you think we should donate time, money or materials to? If you do please let us know. Part of our request is that it has to impact our community locally. Call Dana to set up a meeting.
Thank you always for being great customers!
Dana, Lewis Robert & The Little Miss Mow It All Team
