When we think about our friends, Dave and Diana Johnson and their large loving family, it gives us a warm feeling to know they will gather this Thanksgiving to share dinner and celebrate the blessings of family and friends in the home rebuilt by hundreds of friends, neighbors and local businesses. The Johnsons have touched the lives and hearts of Central New Yorkers by their abiding love and faith, which they put into action by opening their home and hearts to children in need of a safe place and a family.

For the past year and a half we joined with members of the Syracuse Fire Department to plan a renovation of the home of retired Deputy Chief Dave Johnson and his wife Diana. The Johnson's were nominated by the Fire Department to the ABC television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”. When the show was cancelled, we reverted to “Plan B”, a remodel of the kitchen, bathrooms and basement area.
For more than a year we’ve been involved with Syracuse firefighters in planning an “extreme home makeover” of the home of Dave and Diana Johnson. We nominated the Johnson Family for the ABC television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” but the show was cancelled last fall. We knew that bringing the show to Central New York would be a long shot and committed ourselves to renovating the Johnson home if they were not selected.
This year was one of change and milestones for us. One of our valued employees, Jim Pitts, whom you’ve come to know and trust, retired after 17 years service. We wish Jim well, and a long retirement, as he travels across the country in his RV.

This summer, McClurg Remodeling & Construction Services joined with 12 other local businesses to build a deck for Judy Aguirre, a Baldwinsville mother who suffered a spinal cord injury, which caused paralysis, when she fell in her home.
Judy Aguirre, a wife and mother of two young boys, fell in her Baldwinsville home last September and suffered a broken neck which left her paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. For three weeks she was in intensive care and she spent another 10 weeks in rehab. Throughout her ordeal, her main worry has been for her husband, Xavier, and their sons Nicolas, age 11, and Diego, age 8, who attend Reynolds Elementary School.
