Let SERVPRO Help Keep You Warm at the Bus Stop This Winter

Community Let SERVPRO Help Keep You Warm at the Bus Stop This Winter Stay warm this winter with the help of your local SERVPRO

Staying warm while waiting on the bus is essential. Follow these three steps to avoid being miserably cold when the bus has not yet arrived at your stop.

 1. Plan Ahead

Decide what the shortest possible time is that is necessary to spend waiting outside for the bus. Arrive five minutes early, buses can arrive early and may not wait if you are not in sight. 

2. Dress To Keep Warm

Dressing appropriately for the winter cold means that you are wearing a hat, mittens, a scarf, warm boots, and a warm jacket. Thick clothing and lots of layers are ideal. 

3. Move Around

Doing cardio such as moving your body and jumping up and down helps generate some heat. A yoga chair pose can also generate heat. When standing, waiting for the bus, get in chair pose, bend your knees with your thighs as parallel to the ground as you can get. If you do this with your legs together you will stay warmer, then press your thighs into each other as hard as you can to generate lots of heat. 

SERVPRO On Ice

Community SERVPRO On Ice Franchise owner Suzie McGuire and the SERVPRO Storm Trooper had a blast at the hockey game.

SERVPRO of Vermilion County had the pleasure of participating in corporate night at the Danville Dashers hockey game held at the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville. Our SERVPRO Storm Trooper made his appearance and had a great time dancing and taking pictures with kids and adults alike. Definitely a crowd favorite!

Our table was set up with goodies for the crowd and numerous information pamphlets describing on our services. The highlight of the night was when we were able to take our SERVPRO car out on the ice during the second intermission and throw out SERVPRO t-shirts into the crowd.

It was a wonderful time for the SERVPRO staff and their families that were able to attend. All of us at SERVPRO loved being a part of this and look forward to the next event we are able to take part in.

SERVPRO Enjoyed Annual Peer Court Auction

SERVPRO had a great time at the Peer Court Auction held on Friday, February 9th.  The evening was held at Turtle Run, serving hors d'oeuvres for all who came.   The rooms were filled with baskets and items to be auctioned off as a fund raiser for the Vermilion County Peer Court.

The Vermilion County Peer Court began in 2007.  This is a unique program that includes bailiffs, jury members and attorneys who are same age as the defendants.  This is an entirely volunteer program that even includes local attorneys. The young Peer Court volunteers must be between the ages of 10 and 17.   The young volunteers begin as jurors and progress to attorneys.  

The auction is one of the main fund raisers, for this program.   It was great seeing how much our community pulls together for a wonderful cause.  

Danville Night of Lights

11/15/2017 (Permalink)

Saturday, November 11th was surely a night to remember for those of us involved in the “Night of Lights” in Danville. This event is part of the Festival of Trees sponsored by the Provena United Samaritans Medical Center Foundation, an event they put on every year. Weeks and weeks of planning, preparation, and late nights went into these floats displayed. With the entry also being free for those who bring a charitable donation of non-perishable food items, this was a very heartwarming way to bring Vermilion County and other surrounding counties into the holiday season.

There was a sense of pride we had the pleasure of sharing when we saw the finished product rolling down the parade route. Our float featured a cityscape of historical downtown Danville sporting staple businesses like Fischer’s Theatre, Kresqe’s, Alexander’s Sporting Goods, and Woodbury’s Drug Store. Keeping the history of Danville alive through our float was a huge to us. Our goal was to expose the roots of Danville, and bring a sense of nostalgia to those among the crowd. Bringing fond memories of Danville back to those who were lucky enough to experience them. With a huge turnout this year and great spirits in the crowd, there was a lasting smile on everyone’s face here at SERVPRO.

Take me out to the ballpark

Community Take me out to the ballpark Let's Play Ball

Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd, buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks, I don't care if I come back. You have the idea. Rock the Park was one of the last home events for the Dans this year. With the Blackhawks band on hand the park was "rocking". There's nothing better than minor league baseball in my opinion. What better place to observe a game than the stadium in Danville, Il where the last version of the Babe Ruth story was filmed. 

The SERVPRO crew invaded the stadium July 30, 2017. The season was wrapping up and the Danville Dans were trying to improve on a slow start. Terra Haute was the team that the Dans hoped to improve their home record against. This game would go extra innings before the bottom of the eleventh. The Dand won in walk off fashion with a home run that sent the visitors to the bus with a big"L".
