A Special Plaque at a Special Location for the Jarred Williams Foundation

We have a long-standing relationship with Richmond-resident, Dwayne Williams, from the Jarred Williams Foundation. When he approached us to make a perpetual plaque in memory of his son, Jarred, we were honored. When we found out the story behind the plaque's final destination, we were pleasantly surprised.

Jarred Williams PlaqueI could write an entire blog post on this project, on the foundation named after him, and why a state more than a thousand miles away is allowing a plaque to be posted in Jarred's honor, but Sam Cook from the Duluth News Tribune did that already in his excellent article. He describes Dwayne and Jarred's time hunting in the Minnesota woods, and how happy Dwayne feels about the state allowing him to memorialize Jarred the way he is.

And then check out the The Jarred Williams Foundation, an awesome organization that provides financial support to families whose members are suffering with life-threatening and chronic diseases.

The Great Pumpkin Regatta 2010

On your mark, get set, GO!

Once again, we paddled in the Great Pumpkin Regatta, a fundraiser for the Pilot Program, administered by Linking Learning to Life. This year's event raised $21,000!

A shout out to our friend, Kurt Johnson, as paddler number 2. Thanks, you did a great job! Kurt is no stranger to community involvement: he serves as a Boy Scout Troop leader in Underhill/Jericho. Now he can add pumpkin paddling to his list of water sports expertise.

Here's a lengthy video, complete with shameless marketing footage:

The Giant Pumpkins Are Back, and So Is the Giant Pumpkin Regatta!

It’s starting to smell ‘pumpkiny’ out there! Not to mention our precious sun is going down earlier and earlier…fall is just days away! Luckily, Linking Learning to Life is staying busy with the start of our programs and planning for the 3rd Annual NEFCU Giant Pumpkin Regatta & Festival! Oh, it’s back and bigger than before, so save the date:

When:  Sunday, October 10th from 10-3…races begin at noon
Where: Burlington Waterfront Park
What: Pumpkin Regatta with lots of laughs and a fall festival including food and craft vendors, a tent full of kids activities, old school potato sack races, pet costume contest, pie eating contests, giant pumpkin photo ops, bounce castles, and more!
Rain or Shine? Both! So wear warm clothes! It can be brisk out there in October…

We are lucky to have the ongoing support of businesses like Sign-A-Rama to make this fundraiser a success. Last year we were able to raise $17,000 to help fund our youth leadership program, PILOT.  This year, our goal is $20,000 and we just may have surpassed that with the huge response from the business community wanting to sponsor and race giant pumpkins!
