Kitchen Views at National Lumber enjoyed hosting our first EM NARI Networking event on April 16 along with co-host Allstate Glass. Two of our PRO Force salesmen, who specialize in working with remodelers, were there discussing current building projects.

Many demonstration areas were available, including:
• Allstate Glass frameless glass shower enclosures and back-painted glass backsplashes
• Schrock and Dynasty representatives showed our vignettes of their cabinetry products and answered questions
• Häfele introduced their new cabinet lighting that is installed in our two new kitchen vignettes
• John Gendron, one of our Mansfield designers, introduced our new cabinet re-facing program
• Closet Factory showed their new finishes for custom closet products
Look for more photos in our Facebook and Google+ albums.
The night was filled with food, drinks and fantastic company. We had big winners too! Nancy from Masters Touch won a gift certificate to Closet factory. Dave from Home Repairs Carpentry in Norwood won a gift certificate to Allstate Glass, and Dave from Miller Construction won a Häfele tool kit and gift certificate for their product line.
But the biggest winner is the EM NARI scholarship fund. Annually, a scholarship is awarded to an immediate family member of an EM NARI member who is a high school graduating senior who has been accepted as a full-time student to an accredited college or university in any program of study. Thanks to everyone who attended we collected $800 for the scholarship fund.
Builders had a chance to see many of the new products going into kitchens now. Many of them feel the market for remodeling is strengthening. Adding these products to any renovation is sure to add value to a customer’s home.
