Calzone and Boulet Volunteer and Sponsor Hydration Station for First Annual Zydeco Marathon

The teams from Calzone and Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness Institute had a great time on Sunday volunteering for the first annual Zydeco Marathon!

The Zydeco Marathon volunteers were so helpful, providing everything we needed to run a successful Hydration Station.
Check out all the water for the runners!

Dunn's Furniture and Interiors happily provided a tent for us to use at our station to provide a place of shade for the volunteers!

We were up so early to prepare for the runners - it was still dark outside while we were setting up!

Despite the very early start, everyone was thrilled to work together and volunteer. Refreshments provided by Coca-Cola helped!

Happy team photos!

Calzone and Boulet were so thankful for the experience to volunteer for such a wonderful and fun event. Sponsoring the Zydeco Marathon was something we will never forget!

Calzone Springtime Renovations

Cosmetic renovations galore are underway at Calzone. This includes freshly trimmed hedges, pruned trees, weeded beds and a recent fence-lift. Our fabulous fencing will be completed in time to welcome the Spring Equinox. With a new season springing forward, we are bidding farewell to the old and celebrating the new!

We encourage everyone to step outside and enjoy the outdoors while improving your fung shui. Fung shui is a powerful and ancient way to make positive changes in your home or work life. 

By altering how energy flows around and through your surroundings, you can promote happiness, prosperity and good health, and feel energized, positive, and passionate about life. The easiest way to begin is by transforming your home or workplace. Good luck!

Our dedicated carpenters!
