Burgan Real Estate

BOARDMAN, Ohio – Burgan Real Estate is partnering with ServPro of East Mahoning County to offer free sanitization for anyone who buys or sells a home, or refinances through Market Title Agency.

“These are unprecedented times and fears of this virus infecting our homes and families are at the forefront of all of our minds,” saus Patrick Burgan, co-owner and broker of Burgan Real Estate. “The opportunity to purchase a new home or refinance with aggressive rates poses an opportunity for people to provide a better life now and long after these challenges of COVID-19 are behind us.”

ServPro of East Mahoning County was founded in 1967 and is owned by Andrew and Katie Dobson. The company offers cleaning and restoration services in Mahoning, Trumbull, Ashtabula, Erie and Warren counties in Ohio, as well as Lawrence and Mercer counties in Pennsylvania.

“The demand for our sanitization efforts has increased dramatically because of the impact it has on limiting the spread of this disease at our homes, where we are being asked to remain,” Andrew Dobson says. “To partner with a community leader like Burgan and offer this as a complimentary service is an amazing opportunity for us to use our local businesses to ensure we are doing everything we can to maintain the health and wellbeing of the people of our community.”

Inspired Catering by Kravitz

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Inspired Catering by Kravitz’s traditional Easter brunch and Passover Seder usually draw hundreds of guests to Mill Creek Park. But this isn’t a usual time.

With families spending more time at home and bans on large gatherings, Inspired is offering take-home meals for the two holidays. The Passover Seder will also include a virtual ceremony over Zoom led by Rabbi Frank Muller of Congregation Rodef Sholom.

“We wanted to be able to offer the same quality celebration meals that we traditionally offered at the community Seders and the always-sold-out Mill Creek Gardens Easter buffet,” says. Jack Kravitz, president of Kravitz Delicatessen and Inspired Catering by Kravitz. “People need some good quality items that they know are safely prepared so they can enjoy these seasonal special events and get their minds off while staying at home.”

The Passover meal is $149 and serves four. It includes, among other items, matzoh, gefilte fish, chariest, hard-boiled eggs and a choice of stuffed chicken or glazed salmon. Meals will be delivered or are available for curbside pickup at Kravitz Deli in Liberty April 8. Preorders will be accepted through April 5. Kits will also include information on how to take part in the Seder and four Haggadahs texts. 

The Easter brunch, serving four, is $100 and includes ham, barbecue chicken, quiche, spring salad, lemon cheesecake and more. Preorders are accepted through April 9, with pickup or delivery April 12.
