Oaktree Environmental Services

In 2007, former US Army veterans, John New and Steve Kreis, recognized the need for improving the quality of services available to the public in the area of wastewater treatment and hauling. Armed with the knowledge and experience of providing great customer service, they set out to form a strong brand that stood for loyalty and integrity.

In 2008, Oaktree Environmental Services, Inc. was formed and began acquiring and consolidating small, family-run septic and portable restroom companies with the goal of providing great, consistent service at a fair price.

From 2008-2012, Oaktree has seen consistent growth and provided jobs – bucking the industry trend. Being a veteran-owned organization, Oaktree gives back to the community veteran organizations through free and discounted services. We also support local youth programs and schools.

In 2011, Oaktree Environmental Services opened its second office in Newport, PA to offer Perry County residents the same great service that Cumberland County residents have come to rely on. Oaktree attributes its continued success to providing great service at a fair price.

Oaktree Environmental Services is a full-service provider of septic system services including tank cleaning, repairs and installation. We also sell and rent the cleanest portable restrooms available for your events.

Thank you to our customers for their support over the last four years as we have strived to exceed your standards for customer service.

The Marketing of Carlisle : Part VII

by Charlie Andrews

Where Do We Go From Here?

The responsibility for this community ultimately falls to our Borough Government. That does NOT mean that they do it all. We all share in the responsibility for this effort and it’s implementation. It does, however, mean that the Borough has the responsibility to show leadership in this effort themselves and through their appointees.

I would suggest a moderated, strategic planning meeting, hosted by the Borough at a public place in the downtown. The critical participants are the Borough of Carlisle, Cumberland County, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Carlisle Association. Other individuals or organizations such as the Historical Society, Dickinson College and others deemed necessary should also be included.

The object of this meeting is to design a specific action plan and assign responsibilities, with the ultimate goal of reshaping the Downtown Carlisle Association into a true marketing office. This office would be responsible for promoting and marketing Carlisle to the outside world, with a view to attracting people to Carlisle and its downtown for shopping, tourism, recreation, education, and culture. Concurrently, efforts should continue for attracting and recruiting quality merchants to the downtown.

I think a moderator would be helpful in keeping the meeting on track. Some of the objectives of this meeting might be:

• Establishing of a committee responsible for moving this forward.
• Outlining the scope of responsibilities of a rebuilt DCA.
• Identifying initial funding sources (to cover first 5 years).
• Identifying tasks and entities responsible for them.
• Establishing of a timeline for completion of actions.
• Establishing of any other subcommittees needed.

Thank You for . . .
taking the time to look this over. This document is meant to bring attention to a serious situation in our community. None of this will change overnight, but it will change, to first stop our decline and then to move us forward. Carlisle is a beautiful, historic and charming town with tremendous potential to thrive, and not just survive. This effort requires some courage and effort, but we have nothing to lose and the world to gain.

Sincerely,
*

Serendipity Antique Gallery

Serendipity Antique Gallery

Rick & Jane Wire have been collecting, buying and selling antiques and used furniture since 1995.  They moved to Carlisle in 2005, and have become very active in the community including Carlisle C.A.R.E.S. Homeless Shelter.  Rick & Jane became very good friends with Mary Roell, owner of Bedford St. Antiques where they rented space for 2 years.   In July of 2012, they had an “ah-ha” moment when they stumbled across a vacant 12,000 sq. ft. building that had the perfect location and could also accommodate in-house auctions, something that no other Antique Shop in the area could provide.  The fact that it was a mere 6 minutes from their home made it a no brainer.  This was it!  On August 1, 2012, Rick & Jane opened “Serendipity Antique Gallery”.  The Gallery features Antiques, Collectibles, Jewelry, Coins, Silver & Currency, Primitives, Industrial, Quality Used Furniture and the LARGEST selection of Antique furniture in Central PA!

•       Located just 3 miles off Rt. 81 & PA. Turnpike coming into Carlisle

•       Lots of parking
