Our Friends at Golden House are gathering School Backpacks - Can you help out?
"It's time to gear up for school, and we need some backpacks for our teens. If you would like to help our them prepare for the new school year, please drop off your donation at any time. Thank you!"
Golden House is a secure place, where victims of domestic abuse find compassionate, knowledgeable advocates, offering confidential, individualized help.
Would an extra bill coming every month of between $3500 and $9000 be a problem in your retirement?
70% of us will need some Long Term Care once we've reached age 65, according to the US Department of Health & Human Services. Those are not good odds to bet against. Just like a car accident; without car insurance, most of us cannot afford the costs of Long Term Care without LTC insurance.
Most people do not need as much of it as they initially assume, due to the changes in lifestyle when someone needs care.
There will be less cars, toys, travel, even less dining out when transportation becomes problematic; meaning the income you now use for fun and travel now, may be able to be redirected to the costs of LTC. Even if you do not want to spend down savings, the interest those savings can generate can help pay for LTC. Only the shortfall might come from LTC insurance.
There are significant price differences between insurance costs among the companies offering this insurance. That is why your best bet is to seek advice from someone not only familiar with the costs in your area, but also has access to many different insurance companies.
The time to investigate is when you are still healthy enough to be considered for coverage. Diabetes, bone density problems, cancer, memory or mobility issues can cause coverage to be unavailable.
Consider investigating with The Long Term Care Guy. They have been helping people with the costs of LTC for 23 years – it's all they do. Romeo Raabe - The Long Term Care Guy - can even be of some help to those already in care now, protecting some assets from the Medicaid spend down. Give them a call, and schedule a time to investigate your situation.
For more information, or, If you think you can't afford Long Term Care Insurance, or won't be able to afford Long Term Care when the need arises, give Romeo Raabe a call at 920-884-3030.
We spoke with Bob Walczyk, of Proko-Wall Funeral Home & Crematory, about their Gazebo and Memory Gardens:
The new landscaping at Proko-Wall Funeral Home has added a fresh look to a business that was established over 46 years ago. The gardens were designed to allow annual flower plantings in memory of family members who passed away during the previous year.
"This was the first year it has been done, and the turnout was amazing. There were almost 100 people representing 34 families we had the honor to serve.
Kathie Tilot, the director for the Center for Spirituality at St. Norbert College, gave a beautiful introduction followed by a group butterfly release in front of the funeral home.
Larry’s Bellevue Gardens supplied flowers, Proko-Wall supplied Memory Stones to be personalized by family members. Following the ceremonies, refreshments were served."
Within days after the flowers were planted, people started stopping by, looking at the flowers, and reflecting in the gazebo.
"We placed signage in the gazebo memorializing the loved one’s families have lost. All are welcome to come share the serenity of the gardens or say a prayer. The spring planting was a wonderful addition to the numerous programs Proko-Wall already provides for families after a death, and we think this event will truly be one that continues to grow."
The Directors, and Support Staff Members at Proko Wall Funeral Home & Crematory are here for you; in your time of need, or whenever you have concerns or questions.
For assistance in time of need, with prearrangement, or for further information, please call 920.468.4111 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), stop in at 1630 E. Mason Street in Green Bay, or visit Proko-Wall on the web.
As our Members and Readers will recall, last week was Grand Opening Week at Galley 57 Supper Club in Allouez. In addition to their weekly specials, Lobster Night (Thursdays), Perch Night (Fridays), and Prime Rib Night (Saturdays), Chef Andy treated all of his Grand Opening Week guests to a complimentary dessert of their choice.
We heard many rave reviews, and we'd like to share one with you now:
"Just HAD to stop in and try Perch Night! All I can say is: WOW! I definitely got more than I expected for the reasonable price I paid.
The waitress exhibited the perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness, and I even had the pleasure of meeting Chef Andy.
My Recommendation: Put Galley 57 on your "Must Go To" list, and then...GO THERE!"

Another Way Entertainment offers a variety of transportation services, for such needs as:
One Day Adventures
Naturally, you'll want to know what their previous clients think about their experiences:
"Another Way Entertainment was absolutely fantastic for our wedding day! Our driver was so wonderful and accommodating! The whole process from booking to the day of the event was so stress-free! I wish that I could give Another Way Entertainment 10 stars, instead of just 5!"
We were looking for an affordable, easy going transportation option for our wedding party and guests. Another Way Entertainment was it! From start to finish Galen was focused on us. We could decorate however we wanted, bring what we wanted on the bus, and had a driver who didn't mind going to the farm and having a big dog come on and say hi. Another Way Entertainment will give you a stress-free experience on your wedding day, letting you have as much crazy fun as you desire! Thank you!
The bus service was excellent! We had a great time, and it worked out perfectly for the hours we needed it on our big day! We plugged in someone's phone to play some music, and we were dropped off on time at our reception hall. You are by far the most reasonably priced bus service in town, and we loved that you (are) pay by the hour, instead of having a straight fee for hours that we wouldn't be using it. I have already recommended your company to others I know and hope that word spreads about how great your bus service is as well as how easy you are to work with! Thanks again for helping us in making our day perfect.
Take the safe route, 'n hop on the "party bus." Why risk getting a DUI when going out for a weekend of fun with your friends? Get on the bus and enjoy a safe alternative to drinking n driving!! Leave the driving to the awesome bus driver!
You can learn a lot about a business, by listening to what people are saying. It seems that a lot of people are saying good things about Another Way Entertainment!
If you are planning a group event, and would like a safe and fun way to get around town, contact Galen, and tell him the Green Bay News Network sent you.
