Making Strides to End Breast Cancer Fundraising Total
Great news! We’re pleased to announce that we raised a total of $5,532 for the American Cancer Society for their Making Strides to End Breast Cancer event. Thank you to everyone that gave money; raised money or participated in the walk. Jay and Todd matched our employee’s contributions and kicked in $1,000 to get us to our total. Our team was the 6th best fundraising team in the city of Milwaukee for the event.
Together we can make a difference!
Our thoughts turn to soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and sadly to those who may do so in the future - so that the cherished American freedoms are preserved. With that we’d like to offer this poem in honor of Memorial Day:
A Litany of Remembrance
In the rising of the sun and in its going down, we will remember
In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we will remember
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, we will remember
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer, we will remember
In the rustling of leaves and I the beauty of autumn, we will remember.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we will remember.
When we are weary and in the need of strength, we will remember.
When we are lost and sick at heart, we will remember
When we have joys we yearn to share, we will remember.
So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now part of us, as we remember and will never forget.

Shrimp and Fish Ceviche - by Rosa I
2 Pounds raw shrimp

2 Pounds Roma tomatoes (Red)
2 White Onions (medium)
1 Onion (medium)
1 Bunch of Cilantro

Wash and peel the shrimp then chop into small pieces with fish. They seamlessly blend with lemon juice in a large frying pan and cool. Let stand 2 to 3 hours until they are white. (I cover the pan with plastic) Then wash the tomatoes, onion and cilantro. Finely chop, then mix thoroughly, add the Clamato, Ketchup, and a little salt. Served on toast is added a few pieces of avocado salsa Valentina to taste. MMMMMM!! And eat it to that. Serves 6 people.
