  1. At A time when we are bombarded by activist on how business’s are grabbing money by the handfuls from the people, it’s time to see how two of many people and business owners step up. Every reference I heard from the sale results were in the term of how much college time they helped with. I am happy to spend my earned money on young people who are learning the values of working to become tomorrows leaders and shakers. Business’s like these made many life buildings skills available to me as a young man. I am proud that people see the value of continuous support of youth development. Hats off to all of you.

  2. Here, Here, Mr. Don! I second your comments.

    Spent Friday at the Portage Fair–it was grand. The young people there were working their hearts out and having a lot of fun.

    Made me feel proud to support them as well.

    Good to see the REAL AMERICA working!
