Tips for Moving IN

Moving is such hard work, both physically and mentally. Often times we forget the little things involved with moving. Luckily for you, we did some brainstorming and came up with a list of helpful tips to make moving into a new home that much easier!

Break down the cardboard boxes. This will make it easier to either store them or recycle them.

  • Change your address. Yes, this seems like common sense, but it is often overlooked or forgotten about!

Change utilities over into your name.

Do a walk through of the unit to ensure any and all pre-existing damages are on file.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself of emergency locations such as the hospital, police station, etc.

Keep our office phone number and emergency maintenance phone number handy.

Keep extra light bulbs & batteries around; it is your responsibility as a tenant to change lights, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, etc. as they go out.

Do not leave garbage bags or furniture by entry ways or exits, even if temporary.

There will most likely be a few more things to remember during the moving process, but this should be enough to get you started! Good luck, have fun, and enjoy the process!!

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our office at (509)697-4874.

 

Graf Christmas Party 2017

Once again, the Graf Christmas party was a huge success!

The food was delicious, white elephant was unpredictable, and everyone had a wonderful time. Nothing like a little company bonding around the holidays!

We would like to thank our bosses for making this possible!

Yakima Rocks

Have you heard of Yakima Rocks?  If you are like me, and don’t know what Yakima Rocks are let me fill you in.

Apparently, there is a group called Yakima Rocks. This group gets together and literally just paints rocks in all kinds of fun and exciting ways. Once the rocks have been painted, they go disperse them all over the Yakima valley. When someone finds these beautifully painted rocks, the idea is to take a picture with it, post it to the Yakima Rocks FB page and then re-hide it for someone else to find.  Click here to check out their Facebook page.

Neat right?

Well, today after lunch I was very pleased to find our very own GRAF rock! A mystery person came by while we were out and dropped it off on the front desk. So keep your eyes peeled because this freshly painted rock will soon be hidden!

In fact, we actually want to make a game out of this. If you find our Graf rock, take a picture and bring in the rock to our office. Upon bringing it into our office, you will receive a small prize!

Happy rock hunting and good luck!!

We Won!!

We have some exciting news to share with all of you!

Graf has won the 2017 Christmas Lighting Contest! We are so blessed to be honored this award from the Selah Chamber of Commerce, City of Selah, and the Selah Downtown Association.

Thank you so very much!

12 Days Till Christmas!

There are only 12 days till Christmas!!!

Are you all ready? Do you have some last min. shopping to do? Is your tree up?

We are certainly ready here at Graf. The holiday cheer is contagious around here. You will find beautiful decorations every which way you look, gifts for the employee children under the tree, and hear some good old fashioned Christmas playing in the background when you come to visit us. 

Toys for Tots

There will be lots of happy children this Christmas, that’s for sure! Up to this point, we have been able to collect an amazing amount of Toys for Tots! We will be continuing to collect up to the week before Christmas.

The cool thing, is that not all these toys have been donated to us. Graf had set aside a jar for the employees to donate money. Last week, we were able to finally go shopping for some toys. The grand total that was collected from Graf employees to be spent on Toys for Tots, was a whopping $300!!!

WAY TO GO TEAM!

Don’t forget, every little bit counts. While you are out holiday shopping this season, maybe you will happen to come across something that you know a small child would absolutely love. As previously mentioned, we will continue to be collecting Toys for Tots donations up until the week before Christmas.

 

 

Update:

Selah Food Bank has just informed us that our donations came in weighing a grand total of 769lbs!!!! That is absolutely incredible! This amount of food will help feed so many families. Great work everyone.

Best Wishes

It hasn’t quite been the same around here the past week. One of our own, Tryneil, has decided to explore a new career path.

As sad as we are to see her go, we wish her nothing but the best on this new journey!

Tryneil was with our Graf family for a little over four years. Each and every day she was successful in bringing a smile to all of our faces, encouraging us to do our very best, and excelling in every aspect of her job.

Thank you for being awesome, you will be missed!

Winner!

As November nears the end, so does our canned food drive. If you remember, we decided to make a friendly completion out of this years food drive, Graf vs. CWI. Thanks to all of your help, team Graf was able to pull off the win!

Although we enjoyed the competitive edge, in the end the only thing that matters is that we were able to collect many non-perishable items to donate to those in need. Together, we were able to collect piles and piles of items that were all donated to the local Selah food bank.
