GREAT EXPOSURE FOR YOUR BUSINESS!
Wellness & Wealth by Choice
Children may only make up 24% of the population, but they are 100% of our future. Protecting our children’s health is now more important than ever. Parents take steps every day to prevent harm to their children. We use car seats, bike helmets and electrical outlet covers, just to name a few. It makes sense to protect our kids from unnecessary chemical exposures, too. We believe that practicing a “better safe than sorry” approach is more important than ever. Join us for a HEALTHY CHILD EXPO on Saturday May 25, 2013 from 10 am till 3 pm at the former Shea’s Golf Shop on 1101 West Portage Trail. No products sold at expo but plenty of door prizes and other giveaways. Expo is being sponsored in partnership with Healthy Child Health World.

Union Home Mortgage
UNION NATIONAL MORTGAGE CO. IS NOW UNION HOME MORTGAGE CORP. The name has changed, but the company and values remain the same. May 1, 2013—Today, Union National Mortgage became Union Home Mortgage. The change is small, but including the word “home” in the name is representative of how much Union Home Mortgage is committed to helping people achieve the dream of home ownership through both our retail and wholesale lending channels. The mortgage industry has changed quite a bit since the company was founded in 1970, but Union Home’s dedication to earning people’s trust, doing more than is expected, and keeping the promises it makes has allowed it to thrive and prosper, even through some challenging years in the housing sector. So while the name may be changing, the values that have shaped the company and made it a success remain firmly in place. These values and the continued trust of customers and business partners will guide Union Home Mortgage into the new era of homeownership.
About Union Home Mortgage Corp. – Union Home Mortgage Corp. is a full-service retail and wholesale mortgage banking company with a strong heritage/reputation for building solid, stable, long-term relationships based on honesty and integrity. Union Home Mortgage Corp. Ownership structure and senior management team remains the same. Bill Cosgrove, CMB remains the company’s sole stockholder.

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. To combat this, 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/
