Kline, who attends Thomas Edison Middle School in Meriden and will be entering Middletown High School in the fall, is working toward his Eagle badge project. When he learned of Santiago’s situation, he made quick work of returning enough bottles and cans to purchase the $500 scooter at a discounted rate from Estate Treasures on Main Street Extension.

There are a lot of plants for beginners, too. For example, perennial flowers will return year after year and can be a good low-maintenance option. If you like to have a one-and-done experience, consider some annuals so you can change the look of your yard each year when you replace them.
Hire a good honest mover. Beware of moving scams that can run anywhere from bogus “moving deposits”, to bait-and-switch estimates, to overly-complicated contracts. Estate Treasures and Services is a family-run business that is simply pay-by-the-hour. No funny business, although we like to have fun!

They can help you while you shop and also give you valuable information, such as when new merchandise comes in and where to find something that just came in.
