Fox Appliance - Recommend!

Since moving to Marion and buying our first home, my husband and I are always looking for different service people who we can rely on and who are reasonably priced!  Recently, our dryer stopped working, so we called Fox Appliance.  This is actually our 3rd time having them out for various projects (once our dishwasher stopped heating, once our fridge door was broken), and I can honestly say that the $59 service fee for coming out is worth it!  They are quick, professional, knowledgable, and very friendly.  We called Friday, they came out Saturday morning (as promised), called Saturday afternoon with the cost of the parts needed, and came back Monday afternoon (with ordered parts - I have no idea how they got there so quickly!) to install & fix.  I'm doing laundry again!  :)

Have something you need done?  They service most brands of appliances.

Do you have a service person or contractor, etc. you love?  Let me know!  Post it in the comments below.

YMCA Soccer & Volleyball Registrations


YMCA soccer registrations have begun - they're taking them now through March 15th for U6 & U8.  Fees are $25 for YMCA members and $40 for non-members.  Games are at Ballard Field this year (on 18, right before you get to Marion as you're driving in from 69).  Practices begin week of March 31 (spring break week) and games start April 12.

My oldest played soccer last year and had a great experience so we will be signing both our kiddos up this year!  To register, stop by the YMCA in Marion to complete an application and pay your fees (by check or credit card).

Looking forward to being OUTSIDE again!

YMCA is also taking volleyball registrations through March 15.  Same fees & dates as soccer - $25/members or $40/non-members, starting week of March 31.  Volleyball is for 5/6 grade or 7/8 grade.  Stop by YMCA in Marion to register.
