Monday, November 5th: Good morning!
We hope you all had a great weekend! We had one of the crews wrap up last Friday and then today the 2nd crew is onsite completing their touch ups. Thank you again for having us at Maclaren this year! We hope you have a great rest of the year!
Wednesday, October 31st: Happy Halloween!
At least that’s what it seems like, but in all seriousness- enjoy the trick or treaters, maybe watch Halloween, Hocus Pocus or your favorite scary movie, and make sure to get your sweet tooth fix.
The crew is wrapping up on a few areas around the 1370/1372 Building and then we’ll be on our way. It’s been our pleasure to be onsite at Maclaren and spruce up the exterior of your buildings. We hope you have a great rest of the year!

It has been our pleasure being onsite over the last 3 months, although we could have done without all of the rain and delays it caused. We appreciate your patience and grace as we can’t control the weather – thank you!

Monday, September 17th: Good afternoon!
The border battle was a game for the books, but not where either is excited over a win or defeated with a loss. Instead, the green and purple teams ended their first show down of this season in a tie. Missed kicks, defense misses, and penalties piloted the game in a flip flop of emotions. The teams will face each other again on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, in which I’m sure both teams will be all-in to get a W!
