Pinot's Palette

Went to Pinot's Palette on Friday night...We had a group of four of us and I must say that was the best entertainment money I have spent in a long time. They actually made an artist out of me (I struggle drawing stick people) and forced us into having a blast in the process. Our instructor D was awesome! They were well organized and on top of things. I highly recommend this place for a fun evening!

A 5 STAR PLUMBING

I've met Robert several times at Trust Acadiana functions and through Louisiana Special Systems we've done some work at his business, but I MUST share this story about my experience with his company Tuesday (Jan. 7) night. 

I, with limited tools, a multi-meter, a couple of screw drivers, a butter knife and some duct tape, undertook the job of repairing my ill mother's hot water heater. After my fruitless efforts and at a loss of what to do, I thought about Rob and Trust Acadiana.

I called his number and his answering service picked up and said he, the OWNER, was on call. I sheepishly asked if she could ask him to give me a call. 

Within minutes my phone rang with Rob on the phone. Not only did he graciously offer to assist me with what i thought was a faulty element, but he stayed on the phone with me for 30 minutes or so and instructed me through the troubleshooting steps. 

Rob had kids to put to bed and I'm sure a ton of other things to do but without hesitation he stayed with me on the phone as I struggled to troubleshoot. In the end, ONLY through Rob's help, I was able to identify and correct the problem, repairing the hot water heater and providing my ill mother with hot water and peace of mind. 

If you think this is a Public Service Announcement for 5 Star Plumbing, think again. This is a true story and without Rob's help I would have ended up spending hundreds of dollars repairing and or replacing a hot water heater.

I definitely owed it to him to spread this great news amongst our 240 members. We are blessed to have 5 Star Plumbing as a part of our organization.

Personally, thanks Rob. I sincerely appereciate your help last night.

"This condo is fabulous! The furnishings are modern and up to date and the balcony views are fantastic. There is plenty of room and we loved the fact that there are two separate living areas which worked out well for our family. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great getaway."

CLASSIC AUTO SPA

Many thanks to the folks at Classic Auto Spa!  I happened to have a cancelled meeting and an hour to chill while in Lafayette.  I went to see my new friends (met during the Annual Crawfish Boil), at Classic Auto Spa.  First, the value is excellent for the services performed (I would drive from Branch even if I was paying in real dollars).  Second, their workers are very courteous and helpful.  Derek and Mark, you know I'll be spreading the word!!!

VALLET WINDSHIELD REPAIR(PARTNERS ONE MEMBER)

Major props go out to Jeffery Vallet of Vallet Windshield Repair for coming the the speedy aid of Trust Acadiana's Executive Director, Rick Watkins. As Rick and his wife were travelling through BR on vacation, they picked up a nasty rock ding in the line of sight. Before it had a chance to split further, Jeffery met them at Taco Boudreaux's, repaired their windshield and shared lunch with them. Now THAT'S what I call PARTNERS!

UNIQUE GLASS

I recently had two windows in my home that need to be replaced. The first place I looked was in the Trust Acadiana member directory. I called Shane with Unique Glass and I am glad I did. He came out to give me a price quote, ordered my glass and kept in touch with me throughout the process. Shane delivered everything he promised. I am not sure if I would have found Unique Glass without Trust Acadiana, but I will deifinitely be using them for future glass needs.

TOLEDO BEND VILLA

My friends and I stayed at the Villa at Cypress Bend last weekend. It was perfect! There were 4 of us and we each had our private bedroom and bath,wonderfully decorated. The view of Toledo Bend was beautiful from all of the windows in the great room. The kitchen was well equipt, we prepared all of our meals during our stay. It was difficult to leave on Sunday and I have plans to visit again very soon!

JUMP ZONE LAFAYETTE

It's so refreshing to receive excellent customer service. I just got off the phone with Ciel at Jump Zone, inquiring about a birthday party for my grand daughter. I had quite a few questions and Ciel was at the ready with a courteous and informative answer for each one. The entire transaction, from my initial call to receiving the electronic invitations took only 5 minutes, but I must say it was one of the most pleasant 5 customer service oriented minutes I can recall.Robin and William are indeed fortunate to have Ciel as part of their team.

FONTENOT'S AIR CONDITIONING & HEATING

I would like to give a well earned kudo to the folks at Fontenot Air Conditioning ... New trust acadiana members.Called in Cade and his team today about two AC units at my home. Cade answered personally and within 30 minutes his technician Jacob was there. They took care of the problem !BUT the most important thing is that Jacob communicated with me via cell phone about every aspect if the call. I was out of town but had total confidence in this team because they sincerely cared about the service they were providing.

I just wanted to pass this on to all members and to Fontenots Air Conditioning.

Give these guys a try!

1-800-GOT-JUNK

I want to thank the guys at 1-800-JUNK for hauling away all my old stuff- like a wrought iron gate, children's riding toys, super old rusted gym set and lots more other JUNK! A Whole Truck full! The best part was that they walked all around the garage and yard to get everything- I didn't have to spend 3 days hauling it all to one spot myself. I feel such a sense of relief at getting de-cluttered. They were very professional! You NEED to call them!
