Greetings everyone, looks like we are finally going to get some nice weather for all of our projects we currently have underway!
Our April Kentucky Derby event at Harrahs Casino in Joliet turned out to be a really fun evening, with a large turn out of 150 people! Greater Illinois Title’s horse took the win in the races and Dick Searl’s won the $2500! Mark Scaggs was the highest ticket seller with 56 tickets! Thank you to all of our sponsors and Committee Members who participated in making the this years Kentucky Derby enjoyable, as well as successful! See photos on page 7.
The Train Crawl is our next event! Friday May 20th we will Ride the Rock Island line from Joliet and make stops in Mokena and Tinley, and then head back to Joliet. Be sure to sign up for this fun and social event!
After the Train Crawl will be our Annual Golf Outing on June 15th. We are more than half sold out so please register ASAP! We are in need of sponsors in all categories!
As much as we enjoy the social aspect of our association, help is needed from time to time to protect the building industry. Recently, NAHB sent a strong message to the Biden administration to take immediate action to address the issues that threaten to derail the current housing and economic expansion.
Members were asked to sign a letter to be sent and thanks to the effort, more than 10,000 signatures were received on the letter from members and home builders associations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. Many people called, emailed, and the communication outreach efforts have paid off. View the final letter with the signatories on nahb.org/letter.
In closing, I’d like to remind everyone that we’re in a long term membership drive. Members can earn up to 4x the spikes and the SSHBA will earn as much as $2,000 for new members gained this year. We stand by our motto “Build With a Member” so if you work with anyone not a member, this is a great time to bring them on!
Thank you and God Bless you all.
