My last minute latest endeavor is now out of my hands. Whew!! It ended up turning out just great. A few really cool people (15) donated and we were able to come up with 261.38 (incl. myself). I think that is pretty damn good!!! And this morning I hope some people in Racine and Mount Pleasant had a happy little surprise.
I was able to send 24 kringles to Racine Police and Fire, 11 to Department of Public Works and 5 to Mount Pleasant Police and Fire. I called a couple days ago to get a ball park number of employees. And hopefully I distributed them appropriately. They are sending an assortment. They, by the way, is O&H Bakery (Douglas Ave.). I was helped by Mary and Sheenan. Both were very helpful in pulling this off. Not to mention, they donated the delivery charges and gave me 10% off. I can’t thank them enough. GO THERE!! Not like I really have to sell O&H to Racine though. Why would anyone go anywhere else???
I also sent this poem with the kringles…(now, keep in mind it was 6:30am, my eyes were half mast and my head was still on the pillow. Don’t expect Emily Dickensen…)
Cold temps and chaosThrough winds and snowAbove and beyondTrue colors did showHelping the strandedAnd endless plowingPlease do knowWith gratitude were bowingJobs often thanklessWith tiring hoursPerhaps you all haveMagic super powersFor you are these treatsFilled with our thanksYOU ROCK we yellFrom the tallest snow banks
