As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
Congratulations to D. Volk for winning the Kenny Chesney tickets last night in the raffle held for Homes for Our Troops. We raised $655, and it will be added to the proceeds from tomorrow's 9-Pin Tap bowling tournament.
Kenny Chesney - 2 tickets to the Miller Park, Milwaukee WI tour stop (Saturday, May 18) are being "52-chance raffled" to raise funds for:
"Homes for Our Troops, a national highly-rated non-profit, non- partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004. They are strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious injuries since September 11, 2001.
It is our duty and honor to assist severely injured veterans and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and to coordinate the process of building a home. Since inception, administration and fundraising costs are only 9.6 % of revenue. Through your generous donations, the homes Homes for Our Troops provide to our veterans are given at no cost."

This is not just another raffle. It is a way to show kindness and compassion for humanity. It is a way we all can play a part in something bigger than ourselves. It is a way to honor our armed forces by contributing to their stability.
Only 52 cards will be sold - $20 each OR 2/$35 (Great seats!)

There is more to May 18, 2013 than people realize. It is our day of awareness for families and friends, who have lost a loved one to suicide. “When guns fall silent and ceasefires are agreed, wars live on in the minds of the men and women who fought them. And a killer still stalks them, more deadly than the enemies they once faced.[i]” These statistics are staggering. The rates are climbing every year. “349 service members in all branches of the US Military committed suicide in 2012, up 15 percent from 301 suicides in the military in 2011.[ii]” Like soldiers, teenage deaths due to suicide are the number three killer taking the lives of our youth ages 15 - 24.[iii]
