In the curtained-off confines of a photo booth, revelers adjust a digital screen’s controls, then mug for the camera wrapped in feather boas, eyes obscured behind sunglasses. The props and the booth come courtesy of Switek Entertainment, whose photo booths and chief disc jockey—who spins under the name DJ Switek—energize crowds at Michigan wedding receptions and parties. The company also draws on connections to Comfort Limo, Tramontana Photography, and other area businesses, matching hosts with party essentials, such as guests who can put their hands in the air for the entire duration of an event.

As a former police sergeant, Turner Cooling and Heating owner Steve Turner is well-suited to interrogate home heating and cooling systems and identify signs of trouble. As you might expect, all of Steve’s employees undergo thorough background checks to ensure his staff is composed of only the most trustworthy, credible candidates, and the hand-picked professionals are experienced with many different brands, including products by Comfortmaker, Lochinvar, and Munchkin. All services––including heating, air-conditioning, humidifier, air-purifier, and water-heater repairs and installation––are backed by a one-year labor warranty, and the crew is available 24 hours a day to help with middle-of-the-night emergencies or sparse turnouts at last-minute surprise parties.
The lawn care industry has changed since Jim Zylstra, founder and owner of Tuff Turf Molebusters, started caring for yards in 1985. Since founding Tuff Turf in 1993, Zylstra has kept pace with technology while protecting the environment with eco-friendly, EPA-tested granular fertilizers and pesticides. Today, he custom-builds riding fertilizer machines, replacing them every other year with more advanced models, and customizes his fleet of trucks so that each is suited for a specific service. Tuff Turf’s staff of eight full-time technicians—which includes two full-time mole specialists and one gas technician—offer a full range of turf-protecting services such as lawn care, animal and insect control, and tree and shrub fertilization. Tuff Turf demonstrates a commitment to safety and sustainability by cultivating associations with GreenCare for Troops and the Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association.
