SERVPRO of MC/Romeo's Recent Community involvement
Recently the team here at SERVPRO of Marine City/Romeo has been actively involved in various local holiday festivities such as a fundraiser for the Algonquin High School and Marine City's Merrytime Christmas.
For the band fundraiser we set up a holiday themed display in downtown Algonac. This afforded us a wonderful opportunity to display our creativity and teamwork as we came up with ideas for our display. Everyone pitched in a little bit of time and we were able to get a wonderful display set up along St. Clair River Drive. Not only was it rewarding to give back to the bands but we were also able to put our name out into another community. We were so glad to be able to support another local group that has impacted the lives of so many students at Algonquin High.
Another local event in the blue water area this holiday season was Marine City's Merrytime Christmas. This event celebrates not only this tight knit community but the small businesses that make it happen. Small, locally owned businesses that participate are able to sell their products and advertise to the community. There is caroling,food and much more! It's a great time for all of the businesses in the area to come together and celebrate the holidays.
