Happy Holidays! I think we all are hopeful that 2021 will be a better year for everyone! 2020 brought a great deal of stress, anxiety, worry, and feelings of dread. I’m feeling cautiously optimistic that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. 

I try to be mindful and sensitive when broaching subjects to write about in my monthly article. I never want to sound gruff or offend anyone. With that in mind, I do need to address some topics that aren’t easy.

Have You Ever Dreamed of Being a Firefighter?

I am sure most little kids’ hearts beat faster when a fire engine goes racing past with its lights flashing and sirens blaring, and many want to be a firefighter when they grow up. I am also sure that a lot of grownups secretly will admit that at some point in their childhood, they harbored that “firefighter” wish.

The following Message is Courtesy of Chatham Emergency Services Skidaway Island Division:

Santa Claus and his elves will visit Skidaway Island on December 19 and 20, 2020. Santa will be escorted throughout Skidaway Island by the firefighters of Chatham Emergency Services and will be making scheduled stops to distribute treats to all the good boys and girls who live on Skidaway Island. Santa and his elves will be wearing masks and ask that those within six feet of Santa’s team to do the same.

A service area is a structure that accommodates the air conditioner handlers, garbage storage containers, and other ancillary residential equipment that may represent an unsightly appearance if left exposed. 

Service areas are exposed to the elements, requiring more frequent maintenance or quicker replacement than all other exterior features of the home. For this reason, it is important to occasionally inspect service areas to evaluate their condition and determine if the area is compliant with the applicable rules.
