The LaFontaine Family opened their hearts to hundreds of children on October 18, 2016 at 9:00am at the ribbon cutting for the LaFontaine Learning Academy. We are so blessed to be able to show our support to the Whaley Children’s Center, a home for neglected children that have been taken from their parents for one of many different reasons. A safe place for the kids, the center offers security, love, and hope for the future.

November has welcomed us in with a chilly embrace (although knowing Michigan, we’re bound to have at least one more 85 degree headscratcher).

This month houses some pretty important dates: Black Friday for the bargain-hunters, Veterans Day to honor our soldiers, and November 18th, which we all know as being National Only-37-Days-Left-Till Christmas Day.

The Heart of Thanksgiving

But nestled comfortably in this month is one of our most time-honored traditions: Thanksgiving Day.

Many families will gather together around the table that day, sharing stories and laughs through mouthfuls of turkey, stuffing, and all the other staples of the holiday. It’s during these moments that we share in the company of our relatives, both loved and estranged (everyone has an Uncle Eddie in their family.)

Believe it or not, these moments are what make up this wonderful holiday.

October has arrived, and with it one of the greatest holidays to ever start with an ‘H’…….Halloween!

There are many things to love about this occasion: the spooky decorations, eating enough candy to help a dentist retire, the fact that it’s almost Christmas (although, people have been saying that since July).

Yet perhaps the most defining part of Halloween, is the large variety of costumes that people sport.

Here are a few classic “costume ideas” for your car:

Shopping for a vehicle online will never be the same again, thanks to Cat Mode – the newest feature on FamilyDeal.com.

Cat-Mode-LaFontaine-Family-Deal-Blog

Cat Mode, which went live today, allows visitors to FamilyDeal.com to change all the pictures of cars to pictures of cats with the click of the mouse.

Jason Stum, Digital Marketing Manager for the LaFontaine Automotive Group, stopped by to talk about this game changing feature.

“Cat Mode is here today due to one simple fact: People love cats on the Internet. You can’t log on to Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest and not see an endless stream of cute little kitties. It was a no brainer to bring this kind of cuteness to our own website. ”

When asked what the connection is between cars and cats, Stum explained.

“Other than the obvious similarity in spelling? I mean switch out an ‘r’ for a ‘t’ and there you have it. Cars to Cats, just like that. And that’s how easy it is to use Cat Mode, it’s just one click of a button. ”
