Fun and physical labor
 equal enjoying your job

Over the course of the past two weeks I have been a part of two wonderful fundraising events that tested my stamina, strength, and fun spirit. I’m talking about the E-cycle event and the Brewer Fun Bus.
 
At the E-cycle event I stood next to a dozen or so other volunteers in the bright sunshine and unloaded, hauled, weighed, sorted, lifted, and pulled around electronic items that partners of NATH-Frederick Place brought to Charter NEX Films on Highway 8 to recycle. Friday morning started out on the slow side as we had a business signed up every half hour to bring their recyclables. Then 11:30 a.m. rolled around and the public began to line up in the parking lot of Charter NEX Films and south on Highway 8 all the way to the airport entrance. This line of cars, trucks, and trailers was steady until 2 p.m. with partners telling us they were in line for 30 minutes or more. We never knew what to expect but were pleasantly surprised at the turnout. By 6 p.m. Friday, with little to no stopping we had managed to fill one and a half tractor trailers full of electronics that are now staying out of the landfills.
 
Saturday morning we started again at 9 a.m. with a line of cars waiting to recycle their electronics. This line never stopped until noon when the event was over. With our partners, Good News Project from Wausau, we filled almost 3 tractor trailers.  Bettina, project manager from Good News Project, told us that this was the largest off-site, two-day event they had done since she began working for Good News.
 
We will not know the results of this great first-time event for a while, but we sure know that this was a win-win for NATH-Frederick Place, Good News Project, and the public. We were asked several times by those attending this event whether we would be doing it again. It is our intention to continue this partnership with Good News Project and put the wheels in place to hold this again in 2019. Watch NATH Notes in the future for more details.
 
Then on Wednesday, June 27 th I got to join thirty-seven others in cheering on the Milwaukee Brewers, as we joined forces with our sponsor Ripco Credit Union to take our first ever Brewer Fun Bus to Milwaukee. Along the four-hour trip we sat back, watched a movie, and let Bob drive us to Milwaukee. We also did a 50/50 raffle and raffled off a great prize package from Ripco Credit Union. When we arrived at Miller Park, Bob got our bus in the front row and we were able to enjoy our lunch that was prepared by Dinky Diner. The game itself was fun to watch, even though the Brewers did not manage to pull off a win. It was a good feeling gathering back and the bus to have Bob drive us back to Rhinelander, On the return route we stopped in Oshkosh for dinner, raffled off 4 Brewer Cubs tickets, 4 tickets to the Milwaukee Zoo, and two passes and parking to EAA that were donated by Sports Radio 96.5. We also had another 50/50 raffle. We ended our trip by watching another movie and arriving at Home Depot where we had parked our cars around 10:30 p.m. It sure was a fun day at work. 
 
We do intend to have another Brewer Fun Bus next year and hope to make it a weekend game against the Chicago Cubs. Thank you to all who attended and hope to see more of you on the bus next year.

Fun times at a Brewer Game
A big thank you goes out to Ripco Credit Union for sponsoring the first Brewer Fun Bus for NATH - Frederick Place. Even though it was a close game, the Brewers didn't come out on top this time.

Thank you also to Dinky Diner for providing the "Lunch Boxes" and beverages for the bus, and thank you to Sports Radio 95.6 for their advertising and other raffle prizes.
I would like to thank Frederick Place for all the wonderful things they do for our community and for the people in need of their service.
My sister Jackie won two tickets for the Brewer Fun Bus on the Frederick Place Facebook Page! She invited me as her guest to go with her, and one of my other sisters bought her ticket for only $ 95. W hat a deal!
We had such a great time on the bus and at the game. Even though the Brewers lost, it came right down to the bottom of the ninth inning. They even had to look at the review to make sure the runner at first base was out before they called the game. So it was a little nail-biter right to the very end, but nevertheless it was a great game. We enjoyed ourselves!
On the bus raffles were held from Sports Radio 96.5 and Ripco Credit Union. All the proceeds from these raffles and two 50/50 raffles went to Frederick Place. The first raffle was from Ripco Credit Union, and I won it thanks to Becky giving me her tickets! I couldn't d have asked for a better birthday gift. Here is what was in that wonderful gift - two large thermal totes, two water bottles, four can koozies, a pizza cutter, a two-person portable hammock, plus some chip clips and this beautiful garden globe ball.
Thank-you Ripco, I love everything and will put them all to good use!! - Tammy Mueller
Faces of NATH
by Susan Statezny
I’ve known for weeks whose success story I was going to share with you this month, but as my luck would have it, everything went to hell, and I forgot all about Faces of NATH until I returned to work two days ago. So, on the day I should have submitted my prose to my amazing grammar fixer, I had not written a line. I tend to be a “procrastinating perfectionist,” which means I complete my piece three days before it is due, obsessively review it, make changes, and reluctantly hit send at the last minute always feeling it could be better. The thought of writing, reviewing, and making changes in a day or two left me panic stricken. There was no way I could do justice to the amazing woman I had planned on profiling in such a short window of time. Thankfully I had an “aha” moment and knew what I would share with you.
For those of you who do not know, my daughter Anna also works at Frederick Place which is really cool. Cool until we both unexpectedly need to be away. Last week we had one of those unexpected events. Anna had been dealing with a multitude of health issues for two weeks and by the time she gave in and went to the ER, she was a very ill young lady. She quickly received definitive diagnoses of mono and strep throat. Secondary to these illnesses and their duration, Anna’s liver was not functioning well as evidenced by the yellow tinge to her skin and the whites of her eyes. Her overall condition was serious enough that the hospitalist was not comfortable monitoring her here, so the decision was made to transfer Anna to a hospital with a specialist. There was even a discussion about sending her to Madison on the chance her liver continued to get worse - which truly freaked me out. In the end she received an ambulance ride to St. Clare’s in Weston. She spent three days there receiving fluids and not eating anything so her liver could take a break from its part in the digestion process. Anna continues to have increased energy every day but still has a long road ahead of her. She also learned a valuable lesson, and I’m betting she will never again hesitate to go to the doctor.

As luck would have it this all happened when Jamie was in Wisconsin Dells on a long awaited family vacation. Becca was already facing four 12 hour shifts, and Tammy D. was on a long stretch of covering house hours, brat sales, and fundraising. Tammy Modic (aka: Tammy, FL, Fearless Leader) had her usual crazy schedule along with two full days of the long awaited e-cycle fundraising event. Anna Mae, our go to gal for picking up hours, was working at her other job. Even with all of these factors, I received a text from my fellow musketeers while in the ER, letting me know my hours for that first night were covered, and I should focus on being Anna’s mom. Thanks to Tammy’s creative scheduling and the willingness of our Fred Family and extended Fred Family, all of our hours were covered by the employment of longer shifts, split shifts, Anna Mae’s crazy shifts, and help from our extended Fred Family. The “insane hours” award goes to Anna Mae. After working her 12 hour overnight shift she went straight to Frederick Place to work a morning shift. When I called her crazy, she replied that she would do anything she could to insure I could be with Anna. Anna Mae was also our rock when we were in the ER. Her presence made both of us feel less anxious and comforted. Jackie Schmieder, a board member and night owl, worked part of an overnight shift which gave FL a break before her marathon fundraiser day. Our wonderful intern Melissa no longer lives in Rhinelander but drove two hours both ways to cover a 12 hour shift. Jamie was out of town and unable to help, but I know without a doubt if she’d been in town she would have pitched in. We also received support through texts, emails, and virtual hugs. When I returned to work, Tammy shared that this temporary crisis was a testament to the amazing team we have, and I couldn’t agree more. She also shared that the only complaint she received was that they couldn’t do more!

Anna and I are truly blessed to be part of this amazing team. We are not a team because we work together; we are a team because we are dedicated to each other and the work we do. We are a team because we respect, love, and care for each other. We are a team because we go above and beyond to help each other out. We are a team because we have each other’s backs. We are a family because, as Springsteen’s song goes, “We Take Care of Our Own.”

Thank you, ladies, for taking care of Anna and me. I cannot find the words to truly convey how much your love and support means to us. You are all like stars in the sky. We couldn’t see you, but we always knew you were there.
