To hold Card Drive to Recycle Holiday Cards. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to go green, or to “de-clutter” and get organized, Hamilton Appraisal Services, Inc. can help. Over 30 years ago St. Jude’s Ranch for Children started the St. Jude’s Ranch Recycled Card Program as a way to turn last years used Christmas cards into “new” cards for the coming season. St. Jude’s Ranch is a residential facility for abused, abandoned and neglected children. Once they receive your cards, they recycle them into new cards which they sell to help defray costs of the facilities. The Card Drive will be held at Hamilton Appraisal Services, Inc. at 1660 20th Street, Cuyahoga Falls 44223 to drop off your used Christmas, Birthday, Thank you and other occasion cards to send in as a bulk donation to St. Jude’s Recycle Card Program until January 31st, 2014. Rebecca Davey-Vivalo, Office manager of Hamilton Appraisal Services, Inc. said “As a way of “Paying it forward” we decided to host a card drive for such a worthy cause.” All types of greeting cards, including Christmas are accepted. Only the card front can be used, so please check to be sure the backside of the front of the card is clear of any writing, etc. St. Jude’s website describes the program is beneficial to everyone – customers receive fun, “green” holiday or other occasion cards they can feel good sending to their friends and loved ones, and the children at St. Jude’s Ranch receive payment for their work and learn basic job skills and the importance of recycling. – See more at: https://stjudesranch.org/store/ Hamilton Appraisal Services, Inc. has been appraising area homes for over 35 years with 10 residential home appraisers that work to assist area residents with their home appraisal needs for mortgage financing, tax appraisal, probate, bankruptcy, home valuation needs to name a few of the services they offer.

For those that have yet to hear, my brother, Dan, left us after passing away in a car accident recently. I know most didn’t get the chance to meet Dan, so I want to share a little about him. He was the second born of the four Vincent family children. He was the best guy – kind, generous and always smiling in his big man sized frame. He truly is my big brother. He was blessed to meet and marry the love his life, Victoria, just over three years ago. They have a daughter, Madison, and a baby to be due in March of next year. We’re all devastated by the loss of such a great Daddy, Son, Brother and Friend, but his memory will live on forever and we know he’s looking down on us to help us through. In order to help support his family financially, our family has put together a Memorial Fund. We’ve already been receiving great support from family and friends and for that we’re so thankful. I also wanted to extend the opportunity for you all to give during this holiday season. There is no doubt that you would have been a friend of Dan’s. He was one of those types that connected and befriended everyone. That’s what makes his absence even more difficult. If you’d like to know a little bit more about him, my brother and I made a website – www.RememberingDLV.com He was the best and you should get a glimpse why on our website. If you’d be so kind, please contribute to Dan’s family by writing a check to the Daniel L. Vincent Memorial Fund and send to any Huntington Bank or to PO Box 223 Garrettsville, Ohio 44231. If you’d prefer giving a contribution electronically, please visit the DONATE page on www.RememberingDLV.com. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have others in your life that may like to know about Dan, please share this email and his website. God bless and hug your loved ones extra tight.

EMS – Electronic Merchant Systems
In the world of payment processing, security is paramount. I’m sure you’ve seen the news lately, it seems you can’t go more than a few weeks without hearing about another big data breach where customer’s credit card info has been compromised. Which is why the Payment Card Industry, or PCI for short, has set into place a set of regulations and standards designed to maximize security and protect both customers and merchants alike. Failure to become compliant doesn’t just put your customers at risk, it endangers your business. The fees associated with a breach are staggering and often times leave merchants with no other choice than to shut their doors permanently. Call Adrien Coluccio today to learn more about your business’ compliance: 216.287.0081 http://land.emscorporate.com/CuyahogaFalls/
