On Saturday, March 5 the 17th 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 in the spacious 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. Admission is free and open to the public and there is no charge for the programs.
Starting at 9:30 a.m. Marcus Lumber will present the program "Save Dollars on Heating Your Home." This program is for those who are tired of raising energy bills month after month. You'll learn how you can potentially reduce those costs at the Cherokee Home Show.
The Marcus Lumber Plumbing and Heating department will be discussing how they can help you learn more about heating your house in the most effective way possible.
As your local certified Lennox dealer for over 40 years, Marcus Lumber will address everything you need to know in order to maintain your current equipment, plus explain what is available for new, more efficient equipment options.
All attendees will receive money-saving offers on new equipment as well as offers on how you can save money on maintaining your existing equipment for the fast approaching spring time.
From 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Rhoadside Blooming House will host the program "Perennial Gardening: Tried, True, and a Look at What's New!"
This program will take a look at what is happening with perennial gardening. Thinking outside the box gives some great options. Newer varieties give you bigger splashes of color. Come with questions -- and Rhoadside will take time for Q & A's.
From 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. Nulle Construction 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.
Kevin Nulle, owner of Nulle Construction & Radon Mitigation in Ida Grove, will explain the effects of Radon in your home and how a mitigation specialist will control Radon when found in your home.
From 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Marcus Lumber Company is back to present their second program "Decking options: Which one's right for you?'
Having a deck in your backyard can be one of the most relaxing places in your house. But getting a product that is low maintenance but still looks authentic can be challenging and confusing.
