Curtis Lumber promotes top kitchen designer

HOOSICK, N.Y. -- Curtis Lumber announced the promotion of Jeffrey Hall to the position of lead kitchen designer, Eastern New York, Southern Vermont and the Berkshires Region at their Hoosick store.

Hall had previously worked for Haggerty Millwork Corporation in Bedford Hills, N.Y., where he was an architectural cabinetmaker for Fortune 500 companies. During his 20 year tenure, Jeffrey used a hands-on approach to build custom millwork from design through shipment and installation. He developed professional and personal relationships throughout his tenure and was frequently referred by his customers to family and friends for their personal jobs. His in-the-field background uniquely prepared him to design custom kitchens of all sizes and then be able to talk contractors through the installation process. During his current tenure at Curtis Lumber, Hall has designed numerous kitchens and has been featured in the company’s various television commercials. His wood knowledge is second-to-none and has led him to help customers choose the right wood flooring to go with the cabinetry.

Jeffrey has been recognized for his exceptional design skills by various local associations and has consistently outstanding customer feedback. Like all of Curtis Lumber’s design professionals, Jeffrey remains on the cutting edge of design by attending the NKBA’s premier kitchen and bath show KBIS.

Hall’s new role will help Curtis Lumber increase its Hoosick store’s ability to serve existing and new customers, while ensuring a superior customer service experience. Curtis Lumber’s Hoosick Kitchen and Bath showroom is one of the area’s largest and easily accessible from NY Route 7, just across the Vermont border.

BROMLEY MOUNTAIN -- On June 27, Bromley, Vermont’s Summer Adventure, is holding its first Pink Friday, when the pink-wearing, adventure park-loving crowd gets a better-than-half-off deal that will delight the masses and benefit the Vermont- New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure -- the Race for the Cure people -- all at the same time.

On Pink Friday, folks who don any article of pink clothing can purchase an unlimited Morning Mountain Adventure Pass, a $38 value, for only $15. That buys the pinked-out public unlimited access to all that the Mountain Adventure Park has to offer -- Bromley’s famous triple-track Alpine Slide, the Big Splash Water Slide Ride, the Giant Swing, Adrenaline Zip Line, Climbing Wall, Championship Mini Golf, the KidsZone for the kiddies and more -- from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The entire price of admission will be donated to Komen Vermont-New Hampshire.
