March 2020 – Bulletin


Some of our customers have asked how our “Bulletin” began. Actually, our newsletter originated at the time of the Arab Embargo in 1973-1974, when nobody really knew what was happening in the oil industry. Our intentions at the time were to present facts to our customers and interpret them, to the best of our ability.

As time went on, we added other newsworthy information about our company, its personnel, policies and services. We also included information on the many energy saving products that sud-denly appeared on the horizon as well as ways to reduce heating costs.

Over the years we have found that the “Bulletin” has served as an excellent means of communication with you, our customers. Your comments and sug-gestions over the years have been adopted to further enhance the interest for everyone.

So, all in all, we started this to fill a particular need in 1973 and have kept it go-ing ever since. We feel this is still a useful tool for sharing information with you and filling those needs—or at least we hope you get to read our little blurbs. 🙂


Remember to check your statements carefully. Some of you may have had a change to your monthly amount. If your amount changed and you pay on-line automatically, please remember to make that change with your bank as well.

Replacing an older heating system certainly has an impact on household budgets, but Rand-Handy Oil can help you take advantage of rebates on your new boiler, furnace and tank. Equipment rebates are still available through the Mass Save program and through a program operated by the Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association (MEMA), and the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA). Since 2017 when these programs began, we have helped our customers save hundreds, sometimes thousands, with equipment upgrades. Call us today for more information.

Ever wonder what you can do to help your local schools?

  • Make a cash donation rather than a purchase. All PTA groups welcome donations of any amount. Many schools have set up non-profit educational foundations that accept tax deductible donations.
  • Ask your school for a copy of its wish list. Most schools are thrilled to accept donated items and services of all sorts.
  • Support fundraising ventures that promote volunteerism and the community. Money you spend on school car washes, auctions, road races, etc.. Are often nearly 100% profit for schools.
  • Inquire about being a volunteer. Schools yearn for over-50 adults to read stories, do occasional office work, monitor hallways, and visit classrooms to talk about a talent, job or even a trip.
  • Become an activist. Write to your local legislator, ask your local PTA about educational rallies, or gather some friends and try to gather more financial support for education. Every voice counts.
