ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING's Retired Heroes
Paint-It-Forward Event Names Four Local Winners

At ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING, they truly appreciate the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving our local community in their roles as police officers, firefighters, EMTs and retired military personnel. Over the past few months, they asked our local community - you! - to nominate retired heroes whose homes or meeting spaces are in need of a fresh coat of paint. (Sidebar: Thank you for all the nominations that were received. It warmed every heart working on this project!). It was a tough job narrowing down nominees, and due to the outpouring of support ALLBRiGHT received during voting for each finalist, they have decided to paint all four heroes' homes, making this the biggest Paint-It-Forward event ever.
The recipients of the 13th Annual Paint-It-Forward Event are:
United States Marine Corps Veteran Dominic Macaya
United States Marine Corps Veteran Ronald L. Graham
Retired Police Officer Marc Manfro
United States Army Veteran Kimberlin R. Bain

Paint-It-Forward's History of Serving Santa Clarita & Beyond
Josh Abramson started Paint-It-Forward in 2005 as a way to spread a little "painting happiness" to his local community. The Paint-It-Forward movement has grown to include painting contractors from all over the US and Canada and has collectively donated over $1,000,000 to deserving families and nonprofits in need.

Acorn Hardwood Flooring
Wins Prestigious National Award

The National Wood Flooring Association, the premier organization for wood-flooring manufacturers and installers, named Acorn Hardwood Flooring's remarkable multi-species statement floor, installed in a private estate in Thousand Oaks, their "Best Circular/Curved Application" Floor of the Year. Over 3,100 of the world's best wood-flooring installers are members of NWFA, making this award in a competitive category all the more prestigious.
"We are always innovating in craftsmanship and design," says Acorn Hardwood Flooring Co-owner Donna Glasnow, who operates the company with husband Greg. "To have Greg and our team be recognized for the tireless efforts is incredible."
The company's factory and appointment-only showroom, which have served the Santa Clarita Valley since 1979, are located in Sylmar, "but so many of our most loyal, beloved clients live in the SCV, it is home to us," says Glasnow. "We want our next award-winning floor to be right here, in Santa Clarita!"
The pair, which also own Aged Timber, a handcrafted wood-flooring manufacturing company, is already looking forward to next year's competition. Clients can visit the factory/showroom and select wood type (plank/parquet), wood species, texture, color applications and finish; all the work is performed in the factory. "As trends change towards higher-quality flooring that give homes a distinctive, beautiful ambience, we'll be doing more and more award-worthy work. We're so grateful to our clients who place their trust in us and reward us with glowing reviews and happy referrals," says Glasnow.
