On Saturday, March 6 the 16th Annual Chronicle Times Home Show will feature information and products to improve homes and lifestyles.

Exhibits from various vendors will be on display from 9 a.m. to 3p.m. Saturday at the Conference Center at the Cherokee campus of Western Iowa Tech Community College. A variety of presentations will also be offered throughout the day.

Lunch will be served by Hy-Vee from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meal includes BBQ beef brisket sandwich, chips, cookie, and pop for $5.

Admission is free and there is no charge for the programs.

From 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Kevin Nulle, Credentialed Radon Mitigation Specialist, will present the program "Radon and your home"

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that causes no immediate health symptoms, but long-term exposures can cause lung cancer. It comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil.

Simple test kits can reveal the amount of radon in any building. Buildings with high levels can usually be fixed with simple and affordable venting techniques. Nulle, owner of Nulle Construction & Radon Mitigation in Ida Grove, explains the effects of Radon in your home and how a mitigation specialist will control Radon when found in your home.

From 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. Marcus Lumber Company will present their "Roofing Seminar."

This free program is a 30 minute "Roofing Seminar" where you can and sit in and learn valuable information about roofing materials. This seminar will explore alternative roofing solutions that provide a more unique and longer lasting component of your house's value. The roofing industry has changed a lot in the last five years, so come to the "Roofing Seminar" and learn about numerous roofing options including granular metal shingles. Free gift to everyone attending the seminar.

From 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. it's "Room to Bloom!" If you love the containers you see in garden centers and magazines and wish you knew how to design them yourself, now's your chance.

Join us for a fun and entertaining hour as John Beier, horticulturist and owner of Rhoadside Blooming House in Cherokee, shares his knowledge about and love for plants and prepares us for a very colorful spring and summer.

We invite you to come and see what's new for 2010 in remodeling, redecorating, home repair, health and more.
