Starting Summer Right
What We’re Doing in May
May is a busy month here at Herrman and Herrman. The month kicked off with our 2nd Annual Cinco de Mayo fiesta, which will have come and gone by the time you read this. It’s always a wonderful day with plenty of food and fun, and this year we included a food drive to benefit The Food Bank of Corpus Christi. As part of the festivities, we brought in a dunk tank for “Dunk Your Attorney.” Hit the bullseye with the baseball, and, well, you know what happens next! We also brought in a mariachi band to set the mood and had a bounce house for the kids. We’re already excited for next year’s event. On Saturday, May 13, the fun continues with Lemonade Day McAllen. We’re sponsoring the event which is put on by the McAllen Chamber of Commerce. It’s a great event that teaches kids all about entrepreneurship. Not only do kids get to set up their own lemonade stand, but they also will learn how to brand their business, including setting up a website and developing a standout menu. In short, this isn’t your father’s lemonade stand. Of course, the day after Lemonade Day McAllen is May’s other big holiday: Mother’s Day! We’ll be giving away a special spa package through our social media channels, so if you aren’t already subscribed or haven’t liked our Facebook page, you may want to get on that. The giveaway will also be tied into Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, which we’ll be focusing on throughout May. Locally, and around the country, more people ride motorcycles starting in May and through the summer. Because more people are out on the motorcycles, statistically more people are injured and killed on motorcycles during the summer months. It’s a tragic reality, but it’s always worth the reminder. So many motorcycles accidents (usually with cars and trucks) can be prevented through awareness. Save lives by looking
both ways before moving through an intersection, and check and double check before changing lanes, passing, or merging. Blind spots are particularly deadly. Never make assumptions when you’re on the road, either as a motorcyclist or motorist. Visually confirm every move you make, and then confirm it again.
Later this month, in honor of Armed Forces Day on Saturday, May 20, we will be sponsoring the Beach to Bay Marathon in Corpus Christi. The marathon, a 26.2-mile relay race, is one of the largest relay races in the country. It starts on North Padre Island and works its way through Naval Air Station Corpus Christi before ending in Cole Park. At six legs, it’s great for both families and teams, but if you’re a solo runner and you want to participate, event coordinators will help you out. You can find more information at the Beach to Bay website at beachtobayrelay.com. Once we move into June, keep your eyes on our social media pages. We have a few more giveaways planned for next month, including tickets to Schlitterbahn and a Father’s Day grill package. You could say we’ll be kicking off summer in style. I hope to see you soon, and I hope you’re have a great start to your summer.
