Three Dog Night, the Parade of Homes and Harvesters
Whether you care to admit it or not, some of you out there participated in the rock and roll decade of the ‘70s. One of the most successful bands of that era, Three Dog Night, had a big hit with song lyrics that included the memorable line, “Well I’ve never been to heaven but I’ve been to Oklahoma.”
Could be, too, that you’ve reached a point in life where those distant memories of your youth have been replaced by the more pressing thoughts of hedging one’s bet on the afterlife. Performing works of mercy is certainly one way of increasing your odds of meeting old St. Peter at the pearly gates. Volunteering at a food kitchen or a homeless shelter are examples of works of mercy, and poignant reminders to those of us in the homebuilding industry that we are indeed fortunate to be in the business that we are in. Which leads to a special note about this year’s Parade of Homes. The president of Bickimer Homes, Tommy Bickimer, is captaining the Home Builder Association’s Team Kansas for this year’s Parade of Homes fundraiser benefiting Harvesters Community Food Network.
Harvesters stocks the food pantries of dozens of nonprofit organizations in our community. The employees of Bickimer Homes strongly believe in giving back to the community in which we live and work. Help us support the remarkable work of Harvesters. Whether you own a Three Dog Night album or a Pearl Jam cd, please consider a donation during this year’s Parade of Homes and, who knows, maybe at the same time increase those odds of meeting St. Peter at the pearly gates.
