Homecare – 52 Years In The Making!

Happy New Year! This year we were particularly excited to ring in the new year as 2012 marks our fifty-second year of operation.  In honor of our birthday, we decided to take a look down memory lane at what was happening in the year of our founding – 1960.


In 1960…

  • Elvis returned home from Germany after being away on duty for the previous two years.
  • The 1960 Summer Olympic Games began in Rome, Italy.  The US Men’s national basketball team would go on to capture their fifth straight Olympic Gold medal.
  • The average cost of a new home was $12,700.00, the average annual income was $5,315.00 and the average cost of a gallon of gas was 25 cents.
  • Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho was released. After terrifying audiences across the country, the film went on to be nominated for four Oscars and to win a Golden Globe award.
  • The first televised presidential election debate was held between Senator John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon.
  • Pittsburgh won the World Series over the New York Yankees in a 4-3 series.
  • Harper Lee authored the Pulitzer prize-winning novel, To Kill A Mockingbird.  The book would later be recognized as a classic example of modern literature and would be made into an Oscar-winning film in 1962.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you for the past 52 years – we look forward to many more years of providing remodeling and renovation solutions!
