WE ARE #LOUISIANASTRONG!

Louisiana Strong Graphic

The flooding in South Louisiana that has taken place on August 13th has impacted thousands of people right here in our home town. Thousands of Louisianans are coming together to help strangers evacuate their homes and bring them to shelters. Families have been ripped apart, homes have been flooded to the rooflines with water and cars have been flooded and lost in 10 foot waters. But this will not stop the citizens of Louisiana. We will come out stronger than ever all while helping each other out more than ever. Here at All Star, we pride ourselves in supporting our local communities and truly believe that together we the people of Louisiana are an “ALL STAR FAMILY.”

Our entire staff is working very diligently to get our locations that have been effected, back up and running as soon as possible. Here is a list of all of the current standings of our locations:

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in South Louisiana, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Bike around the Neighborhood

If your kiddos are wanting to learn how to ride a bike, the summer is the perfect time to teach them! Biking around the neighborhood or a local park is an easy way to get out energy and enjoy the outdoors!

Fishing

Teaching your kids, or a friend, how to fish is so easy fun! It is an easy way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with friends and family all while learning a new skill!

Visit Your Local Park

Visiting your local park for the day is such an easy way to have fun with the kiddos and not shell out any big bucks for amusement rides or park food. Simply pack lunch, a few snacks, and sunscreen. Some local parks also have a water park area so on a hot day your kiddos will love to play in the water! Just make sure to bring towels and extra clothes!

Build a Fort in the Living Room

Growing up we all used to make forts in our living rooms. Now it is your turn to teach your kiddos how to make the perfect living room fort! Drape some old sheets over kitchen chairs or your couches. Put some sleeping bags and pillows inside and you are set! Eat dinner, watch movies or tell spooky stories! Whatever you do in your living room fort will sure to be some amazing memories!

Neighborhood Game Night

Designate one evening a week for some friendly multifamily competition (think kickball, softball, and capture the flag). Keep things fair by designating a different parent to ref and dividing into new teams each time, like dads and daughters versus moms and sons. This Neighborhood Game Night is sure to become a tradition!

Family Car Wash - ASAG, ASC, ASF

Hold a Car Wash

Park your car in the driveway and let your child give it a good scrub with a pot of water and sponge or with the garden hose. Get the whole family involved for added fun!

Play Local Tourists

Learn more about your city’s history, local shops and new restaurants. You can ask friends and family for new and exciting places to go around town, or use Virtual Tourist to help you along the way!

Start a Craft Class

Most crafts stores — including chains like Michaels, A. C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby — offer hands-on activities just for kids such as scrapbooking, box decorating, bead stringing, as well as projects using clay, pipe cleaners, and more! Some classes are free; others require a nominal fee — typically $5 or less. For more information about classes, visit Michaels or Hobby Lobby, you can visit your local craft store!

Volunteer Your Time

Volunteering teaches compassion and responsibility — it also keeps kids busy. There’s plenty little ones can do, like cleaning up a green space or collecting canned goods. You can also bring your kiddos around the neighborhood and help your elderly neighbors do day-to-day tasks such as watering plants, putting up groceries and much more! For more information visit your local Food Pantry or Animal Shelter to see if they would like some extra hands to help!

Twister Shaving Cream - ASAG, ASC, ASCN, ASDCJR, ASF, ASFL, ASH

Play Twister with Colored Shaving Cream

If you have Twister on hand, this is a fun way to spice the game up! The kids will love it and it is so funny watching everyone slip around! Purchase multiple cans of shaving cream and food coloring. Simply empty the contents of the shaving cream into a bucket, drop as many drops as you want of the food coloring and mix it together. Make sure to keep all four of the colors in separate buckets. Once all of the colors are mixed, scoop out a blob of colored shaving cream onto the correct dot on the Twister board. Then you are ready to play Twister! The food coloring will stain your clothing, so make sure to wear old clothes!

All of these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!

National Car Care Month

2016-04-11 National Car Care Month

April is National Care Car Month! “Why April?” you may ask yourself. In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your car ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your vehicle’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to vehicle safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

If you need assistance with any of these car care tips, we are more than happy to help! You can schedule a service appointment 24/7 by clicking here!
