Fourth of July traditions

July 3, 2014
Tomorrow is the day when we celebrate the United States and all the wonderful things about it. In our hometown of Warroad, Minn., we throw one of the best Independence Day parades around–and we continue on a tradition that our founder, George Marvin, started. George believed that every child deserved some pocket money on the Fourth of July, so he decided to provide nickels to the local children. We’re still handing out the nickels, along with a free ice cream cone.
And that’s not the only tradition Marvin holds dear. We handcraft our products in America, sending top-quality windows and doors from Warroad to the world. We’re proud to be where we are and proud to build the products we do for our customers. Happy Fourth of July!
