FS Construction Services remembers Veterans Day

Veterans Day: A Day to Remember

Here we are at the homestretch of the year where each day seems like it’s speeding towards the next one and each holiday and gathering seems like it’s going to overlap with another holiday or gathering. It is often an exciting, tiring, and busy time of year. This busyness can also get in the way of the thing that most people are trying to do at this time, which is slow down, relax, and take stock of things.

FS Construction Services Remembers Veterans Day

While Veterans Day is nationally recognized, it can get lost in the shuffle of everything else going on this time of year. It’s why we here at FS Construction Services like to always make a point to draw attention to it and express our gratitude for the brave men and women who have served our country. Many of them are our family, our friends, and our clients.

As we like to say, we get to do what we love because of the sacrifices of our veterans, and that is certainly a reason to pause, reflect, and be grateful for the freedoms we have been afforded. So I hope you will join us on November 11 as we offer our gratitude to those who have served, both near and far. We are thankful for your service and the sacrifice your service required.

FS Construction Services Season's Greetings

Season’s Greetings

Even though it may not seem like it, somehow it’s already December and we are quickly approaching the start of another year. As always, this past year was another busy one at FS Construction Services, and it’s hard to believe it’s already over. We hope that with the holidays around the corner you will be able to take a little time to slow down, recharge, catch up on sleep, and spend some time with the ones you love.
 

Season’s Greetings from Our Families to Yours

 
While this year often felt more normal than the one before, there is no denying that it has had its fair share of change and stress. And while we would love to say that all that change and stress will disappear when January starts, we all know it doesn’t work that way.

However, what we do know is that the family, friends, and clients we get to share our lives with on a day-to-day basis are a resilient bunch. We are thankful for the example of their hard work and dedication. It inspires us to keep going, keep growing, and keep serving those around us.

We encourage you to take a moment, whenever you can, and appreciate the small things, the good things, and even the hard things that you have had to press through. Soon enough it will be a new year with new tasks, new jobs, and new sets of obstacles and we will be right back at it. But for now, we are going to enjoy a little calm in the midst of all the busyness.

As always, we are here for any of your buildinggrain systemseed systemroofinggarage door, and painting needs. If you have any questions at all, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know.

Gateway FS Construction Services GROWMARK Scholarship

GROWMARK Foundation Scholarship for Agriculture Students

It will come as no surprise to any of our friends, followers, or clients that we here at FS Construction Services put a high value on the importance of agriculture and that much of our day-to-day work puts us in close contact with farmers and other agricultural specialists. So we are very excited to announce that GROWMARK, the company that owns the FS trademark, is once again offering the GROWMARK Foundation Scholarship for students pursuing a degree (two or four-year) or trade-school certification in an agriculture-related field. This $1500 scholarship is open to students in the class of 2019.

Amy Bradford, GROWMARK’s Corporate Communications Manager, said of the program, “GROWMARK and the FS member cooperatives are strong supporters of youth leadership education and this is one more way we can contribute to the future of agriculture.”

And we couldn’t agree more. Especially with such rapid changes in technology as we’ve experienced in the past couple decades, it is as important as ever that we encourage those interested in agriculture to study and help contribute to the continued growth and flourishing of such an important field.

Those interested in applying must complete an online application which will ask for the following: academic information, community service, leadership activities, and essay questions related to agriculture and cooperatives. Completed applications will be judged by a panel of agribusiness professionals. High school seniors or students at any level of higher education are eligible to apply for the GROWMARK Foundation Scholarship. Applications can be completed at www.growmark.com/scholarship and are due by midnight on April 12, 2019. Recipients will be notified by July 1, 2019. For more information, please visit GROWMARK or contact Karen Jones at 309-557-6184.
