Landmark Construction & Remodeling and volunteer tradesmen pause while working at Santa's Hide-Away-Hollow, an 80-acre "North Pole" near Cleveland. Hide-Away-Hollow, which offers terminally ill children and their families a chance to celebrate Christmas at any time of the year, is relocating from a small residential area and should reopen full time in a couple of years.
Landmark Construction & Remodeling crew -- outside the company's offices in Chagrin Falls, Ohio -- prepare for a Vendor Appreciation Day & Open House. Tradesmen, suppliers, architects, bankers and Realtors were invited to learn more about the company. Twenty handpicked vendors received appreciation plaques.
