Home show coming to Tecumseh’s Smith Recreation Center
The Lenawee County Association of Home Builders (LCAHB) will be bringing its 29th annual Home and Better Living Show to the Tecumseh community April 5-7. The show, which runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will be held at the AJ Smith Recreation Center. Past shows have been held primarily at Siena Heights University.“We’re excited about being able to bring the show to Tecumseh and we even had exhibitors who wanted to be a part of it because it’s in Tecumseh this year,” said Judy Carlisle, Executive Officer of LCAHB. The association has been in Lenawee County for 46 years and is a member of the National and State Association of Home Builders as well. “We’re excited to kind of re-introduce ourselves to Tecumseh since people have always had to drive over to see us in the past.” Carlisle added that the recreation center is the “perfect venue” for the show, which expects to fill 78 booths with exhibitors to include member companies as well as others who want to showcase their services.“We hold this every year because, number one, we want to showcase our builders’ talents as well as their businesses, and to support our members,” Carlisle said. “We also enjoy the opportunity to show people who attend the event what our members can do for them.” She said it’s also an opportunity for networking and support among the various service providers in the county.Several builders and remodelers will be present, along with carpet and flooring installers, landscapers, water system companies and window installers, to name a few.“Most of the companies will show off their latest and greatest new things including new products they have on the market,” said Carlisle. “A lot of them will run specials during the show so there will be discounts and drawings throughout the weekend.”Visitors will also have opportunities to chat with vendors and perhaps pick up ideas for their own projects.“One of the things about the show is that it provides an opportunity for people to find reputable licensed contractors, and our members adhere to a strict code of ethics,” Carlisle said. “People can be assured if they hire one of our members they will be happy with the results.”Admission for the event will be $1 per person, and kids 12 and under are free. The show will take place Friday, April 5, from 3-8 p.m.; Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.“We’re also very grateful for the partnership with First Federal Bank who is helping to make this event possible,” said Carlisle. “They are our major sponsor and the folks in the Tecumseh office have been terrific to work with so we can make this a great show. I can’t say enough good things about them.”To reserve a booth or obtain more information, call 264.2545.
