The home show is coming for you

Annual chamber event aimed at helping you whip your household into shape

Pests beware

Pests beware

When Steve Stewart pokes his nozzle into backyards, pests get nervous.

And life at home starts to get better for people.

Stewart, owner of Ladysmith’s Antex pest control, is just one example of the wide variety of businesses and organizations gathering at the Aggie Hall this weekend to showcase products and services aimed at making your home a better place to live.

Gutters, air conditioners, knives, mortgages, countertops, deck covers, even jellies and jams — you could be surprised at what you might find at the annual Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce-sponsored extravaganza.

Never mind just stopping by to find a solution to your household dilemma. Chances are good you might discover something you never knew you needed.

“Time to get your house in order before summer arrives,” chamber spokesperson Jacquie Chellew said. “This year’s show is shaping up to be a great one with dozens of professionals eager to share their expertise by showcasing their products and services.”

A number of outdoor vendors have been added to this year’s show and community groups like the Ladysmith Fire Department and Citizens on Patrol will also involved. Admission is free, and visitors can enter into a number of prize draws.

The show runs Friday April 10 from 2 to 8 p.m. and Saturday April 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check the flyer in today’s Chronicle, the chamber’s website, or call 250-245-2112 for more information.
