Visitors at the 2012 Ripon Area Home & Leisure Show had the chance to talk directly to business owners and representatives about home and property improvements.
Although it may not feel like it, spring is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking about home makeovers and projects. The Ripon Area Home & Leisure Show on Saturday, March 16, is the ideal place to get ideas on what to do and how to get it done.
Builders, contractors, landscapers, decorators, and other area businesses that cater to homeowners will be on hand to display their products and talk about their services.
Also on hand will be a representative from the Fond du Lac County UW-Extension office to speak about how to find out if a home is safe from radon gas. That presentation will take place at 11 a.m. Radon test kits will be available for purchase after the presentation.
The Home & Leisure Show will be held on Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Royal Ridges Conference Center, Westgate Drive and Hwy. 23, in Ripon.
"There are so many businesses right in our own backyard offering products and services homeowners will be looking for as they start sprucing up their homes this spring," said Paula Price, executive director of the Ripon Chamber of Commerce. "Having these businesses all in one place at the same time is an easy, convenient, and no-pressure way for consumers to find out what is available and to meet the people who provide those services. It's important to our local economy to support area businesses, and this is the perfect way for folks to find nearby businesses that can provide what homeowners need."
Visitors are encouraged to take their time at the show and gather all the information they need. For their convenience, lunch and snacks prepared by Royal Ridges will be available for purchase.
There is no admission fee to attend the Home & Leisure Show, but people are encouraged to donate canned goods, cereal, or $1 per person to the Community Thrift Store and Food Pantry at the door.
The Ripon Area Home & Leisure Show is sponsored by the Ripon Chamber of Commerce, CENTURY 21 Properties Unlimited, Hometown Broadcasting WISS/WAUH, Comfort Suites Royal Ridges, and the Ripon Commonwealth Press/Express.
