Thank you so much for replying to me so quickly. I am relatively new to purchasing things on the web. I placed an order with your company for two reasons. The first being the superior quality of your reasonably priced diploma frames. And the second, your value of customer service.

From Abraham Lincoln to Barack Obama - Presidents Who Have Visited Knox College

I don’t know if Knox College holds any kind of record for the number of Presidents who have visited its campus (nine), but the list is impressive. The college, located in Galesburg, Illinois, has a rich and fascinating history, and Abraham Lincoln is a big part of it.

Honoring a former Rye High School Athlete ~ September 11

In the course of my workday, there are many times that I come across amazing, interesting, and even surprising facts about the schools we work with. This time, the information was about a former high school student and athlete who attended Rye High School (Rye, NY).  He was one of those killed on 9-11.

Let’s Throw a Graduation Party!

Once the graduation ceremony is over, and the (decorated) grad cap and gown are no longer needed, and the diploma is either in hand or soon to be mailed (remember to frame it)…it’s time to celebrate!

It’s best to make party plans ahead since there’s lots to consider. 

Ryan, a marketing intern at Church Hill Classics, is graduating from Ridgefield High School in Connecticut, and plans to attend Virginia Tech in fall 2012.  He and his parents are already getting prepared for his upcoming graduation party in June.  His preparations follow…

College Colors Day – A Start to the School Year

What colors are you wearing September 2?  I only ask because September 2 is College Colors Day!  When I was first told that the employees of Church Hill Classics would be participating in “College Colors Day,” I immediately wanted to find out what this day is all about. I went directly to the College Colors Day website and saw “Step 1: Wear Apparel Representing your Favorite College on Friday, September 2, 2011.” The point is, according to the website, “W ...

Tornadoes and Tuscaloosa

A Connection with Sigma Alpha Epsilon! The stormy weather which brought a barrage of tornadoes that struck the south in April, hit a chord with me because of the fraternity SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON which was started 155 years ago in TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA. Of all those locations in which tornadoes touched down in the south, Tuscaloosa was one of the most heavily hit. My connection was a blog I posted earlier this week about a son and father - Mark  and his dad John – who had each joined this very frat ...

Father and Son Fraternity Bond

“Years ago, when my father passed away, I found his fraternity certificate in his papers. Because he had kept it for so many years it had special meaning to me,” said Mark Corbett of Connecticut. “We shared the bond of father and son as well as being members of the same fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon. It gave me the push to search mine out of the basement. For a time they both sat together in a folder in my desk.”

It's "Earth Day" All Year Long for These Employees

Some of their efforts include recycling bottles and cans, donating leftover matboard, and collecting used up toner cartridges, conserving on paper use, and collecting paper to be recycled. Sally, who works in our Accounting Department, volunteers to take co-workers’ empty bottles and cans in the company recycling bin off to be recycled each week. “I take the [items to] recycle home every Friday,” explained Sally. “The town picks it up Monday morning.  I have been doing th ...

Keeping "Green" at Church Hill Classics

Being "Green"...what does that mean? "It's not easy being green," is a line from a Kermit the Frog song, and although it is focusing on something other than the environment, being ecologically "Green" takes lots of work too, and is something that Church Hill Classics strives for. Recycling efforts at the 47,000 square foot facility in Monroe, Connecticut, include a variety of ideas and practices, and employee participation. The latest environmental change at Church Hill Classics is the use of ...

Decorating for Christmas in Miniature!

Dollhouse collectors have everything or nearly everything that real houses could have – comfy stuffed sofas and dignified wing chairs, framed paintings, oriental rugs, electricity, and patterned wallpaper.  With Christmas coming, decorating for the holidays is also something that dollhouse owners do for their dollhouses – but it’s all in miniature, of course! According to Susie Vallon of Whimsies Dollhouse Shop in Greenwich, CT, “Miniaturists do indeed love to decorate their dollhouses for the various ...
