Family business to show appreciation for local hero
Semones Heating & Air Conditioning will demonstrate its appreciation for this community and celebrate the holidays by giving a new heating and cooling system to a local hero. Retired and active-duty military, law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical services first-responders who live in Woodford County are eligible to receive a furnace and air conditioning or heat pump system, including a 10-year parts warranty and a one-year labor warranty. The recipient of the new heating and cooling system will be announced at the Christmas Parade in downtown Versailles on Dec. 3. Applications - available at Semones Heating & Air (240 Crossfield Drive) or online: semonesheatingandair.com - are due by the end of business on Dec. 1, with a goal of installing the new HVAC system before Christmas. "I'm really excited to see how many entries we get," says manager Chris Semones. He and his dad, Phillip, talked about what their family wanted to do for the community this holiday season. And they agreed to pay it forward in a big way by helping a local hero. "It's really from the heart. It's showing our gratitude. And it's a good feeling to be able to help somebody out," says Chris Semones. His family has owned and operated Semones Heating & Air for over 35 years. In past years, they've collected food donations for the Food Pantry for Woodford County, and provided the labor to install a new HVAC system for a new food pantry building. With the majority of their business in this community, Semones says, "Our heart and soul is here in Woodford County .Versailles has been good to us and good to our business."
