    The Steps of Planning a Family Reunion

    Last updated 20 hours ago

    For close families who treasure one another’s company, a family reunion can be the highlight of a year, or even a decade. If you have been charged with the task of planning your next family reunion and you want it to exceed attendees’ expectations, then this brief video clip can provide you with some invaluable advice.

    Planning early, selecting a date or dates and a place strategically, and setting a firm budget that is not to be exceeded can help you get off to a great start. To choose activities that everyone will enjoy and make others in the family feel as included as possible, send out a survey to family members asking for their input.

    One aspect of family reunion planning that is important but often left to the last minute is the reservation of barricades, portable toilets, and other rental essentials that make a family reunion safe and comfortable for everyone. To arrange rental essentials for your Simi Valley, San Diego, or Los Angeles family reunion, call Cal State Site Services, Inc. at (888) 440-6122.

    The Advantages of Barbed Wire and Razor Wire

    Last updated 6 days ago

    Fences exist for a variety of reasons, and the materials one chooses for the construction of a fence should be capable of fulfilling that fence’s purpose. If you are looking to install a security fence, barbed wire and razor wire are two fencing materials that should be on your radar.

    Both razor wire and barbed wire are particularly effective at deterring people and animals from climbing fences, due to the sharp edged blades and pointed barbs for which they are known. Razor wire is generally a bit more expensive than its classic relative, barbed wire, and may also be slightly more effective at keeping human trespassers away from your property. If keeping cattle or other animals on your property is your main goal, barbed wire should be sufficient.

    Are you a resident of Simi Valley, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, or the Los Angeles area who is in the market for a barbed wire or razor wire fence? To speak with a skilled and experienced fence specialist about securing your property with a high-quality, sharp-edged fence, call Cal State Site Services, Inc. at (888) 440-6122.

    A Guide to Planning a Family Reunion

    Last updated 14 days ago

    Family ties are a lovely thing that are comparable to nothing else and tend to be rivaled by few other relationships. As children from one family grow up, relocate, and start families of their own, the time that many families get to spend together dwindles, making family reunions a rare and special opportunity for entire families to be together again. If you are looking to plan a family reunion, here are some tips that can help you make the event especially memorable for everyone involved.

    Start Planning Early
    If possible, try to choose a date and location upwards of six months before the reunion. This will give you time to put together an agenda filled with fun activities, reserve venues, secure portable toilets, and design and order shirts. It also makes it more likely that the turnout will be higher.

    Involve Others
    Start an e-mail thread that can be used for brainstorming, voting on shirt designs and planned activities, etc. If you are heading up the planning process, put together a survey to find out what those who attend would like to spend their time doing and how much they can contribute to the family reunion budget.

    Select a Theme
    A broad theme—based on your family’s cultural heritage, a favorite family sport, or a classic film that almost everyone in the family enjoys--can add some flavor to your family reunion. Consider activities and t-shirt designs that work with this theme.

    Don’t Over Pack the Reunion Schedule
    Family reunions should definitely include fun activities, but refrain from planning a jam-packed itinerary. A bit of downtime will allow family members to stay fresh and relaxed, as well as make the most of the activities in which they do partake.

    Regardless of whether or not you have family members in Southern California, Simi Valley is an ideal place for a family reunion. If you are planning a reunion in Southern California and wish to work with one reputable event supply rental firm for everything you need to make the reunion a success, Cal State Site Services, Inc. can help.

    Tips for Planning an Outdoor Carnival

    Last updated 23 days ago

    Whether you are trying to organize a successful fundraiser or just want to plan something special for your school, an outdoor carnival is a great option. Use the following tips to find all of the equipment and accessories that you need to put together an unforgettable outdoor carnival:

    Get Some Help
    Even if you are just trying to organize a small event, there are a lot of details that go into planning a carnival. You should start the planning process by gathering a group of people who can help you handle all of the details so you can put together a really great carnival.

    Decide on a Theme
    Deciding on a theme for your event can simplify the planning process. If you are throwing your carnival in September, for example, you might want to make it a harvest theme. Work together with your planning group to decide on a theme that brings your carnival together.

    Make It Safe
    Once you have chosen a location that works for your needs and applied for the necessary permits, you should think about safety features that will protect your guests while they enjoy the carnival. Set up some temporary fencing around the perimeter to block off the carnival area. Make sure you have some sort of insurance coverage in case of an unexpected situation.

    Find People to Work the Carnival
    Start your search for a carnival staff a few weeks before the event to ensure that you have enough people to man all of the booths. You might want to send out some flyers or social media posts asking for volunteers to sign up to help with the carnival so you can stay organized in the weeks leading up to the event.

    At Cal-State Site Services Inc., we bring you the fencing, barricades, and portable toilets you need to put on any kind of outdoor event. As soon as you know your carnival’s location, you can start to organize your fence rentals to prepare the venue for your event.

    Reasons to Add a Windscreen to Your Fence

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Make your temporary fence really work for you by adding a windscreen. Whether you are working on a construction site or setting up an outdoor carnival, windscreens provide additional aesthetic appeal and function for your fencing and your property.

    These features offer a neutral background that can make your site look more professional. They prevent people outside from seeing through the fencing, which helps you add both privacy and security to your property. As the name suggests, these fence features bring you wind and dust control. You can choose between green, black, tan, or royal blue windscreens to enhance your fencing.

    Whether you need fence rentals with windscreens, barricades, or portable toilets, Cal-State Site Services, Inc. can deliver. Our inventory has everything you need to protect job sites in the Simi Valley area, add privacy to outdoor events, and barricade unsafe areas. To learn more about our products or to order your temporary fencing, visit us online or call (888) 440-6122.
