Evening Out At Iron Pigs

Thursday night, May 22nd, at the Iron Pigs game turned out to be  a rain free event despite late afternoon thunderstorms. The Executive Forum had a prime location in the "Team Box" overlooking home base.

A number of members, family and friends attended and enjoyed the amenities of having a private box.

By the time the game started at 7:05 pm we were all well fed and settling in with liquid refreshments. Part way into the game "FiFi stopped by for fun and pictures.

Even though the Iron Pigs lost the game 9-4, there were fireworks afterwords to make up for it.

Deb and Joe Corcoran Affiliate with Home For Heroes Program

The Deb and Joe Corcoran Team at Keller Williams Real Estate are pleased to announce that they are now among a select number of agents nationwide accredited to work with the Homes for Heroes program. Homes for Heroes, which has quickly spread across the nation with more than 1,000 affiliates in 47 states, connects the home-town heroes who serve and protect our communities and our country with a partnership of Realtors, mortgage lenders, title companies, and other affiliated service providers for the sole purpose of offering savings to local heroes when buying or selling a home. The program is open to military personnel, police officers, firefighters, teachers, first responders, health care professionals and others who serve our community and nation.

In addition to pairing local heroes with experienced agents and other professionals, the program offers significant savings to real estate consumers because the participating agents donate 25 percent of their commission directly back to the hero at closing. “Based on a $200,000 home, our heroes on average save $2,000 on their purchase not including the savings they’ll receive with our Friends of Heroes – local businesses that participate and give special rebates or discounts to our hero clients even after they close,” according to Joe. “The 25 percent discount will apply directly to the HUD statement of the buyer/seller.”


Deb and Joe decided to get involved with the program as part of their ongoing commitment to serving the Lehigh Valley community. Joe is a volunteer firefighter and president of Upper Macungie Fire Station No. 56 and Deb is a registered nurse with more than 20 years of experience at Lehigh Valley Hospital, as well as the fire department Treasurer.
