Merry Christmas 2018

Note: This is our annual Christmas card and letter, sent to friends and family each December. Want to be added to the list for future years? Drop me a line!

Happy Holidays!

We hope this note finds you happy and healthy. We have had a year of ups and downs and wanted to briefly share some updates. 

Eric continues to operate his business, Why The Fuss? Technical Solutions, where he builds and maintains websites for local small/medium-size businesses and nonprofit organizations. He loves what he does, both for the independence it provides as well as the opportunity to continually learn new skills and technologies.

Eric had a great view for Game 1 of the 2018 NLCS at Miller Park

Away from work, Eric enjoyed watching the Milwaukee Brewers come oh-so-close to advancing to the World Series. He sat nine rows behind home plate for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series at Miller Park — a Brewers win and an experience he will never forget!

He continues to volunteer for various organizations and experienced a record-breaking year for Chilimania, an annual festival in Edgerton, Wisconsin, for which he serves as marketing coordinator and as a board member. He made several TV appearances in this role, including a six-minute segment on The Morning Blend which aired on Labor Day on WTMJ in Milwaukee.

Katie recently completed a Graduate Business Foundations Certificate at UW-Whitewater and is working on her MBA degree. It has been a very rewarding experience for her personally and professionally. She conquered a particularly difficult Statistics class and can see great personal growth, as well.

Katie is still working for UW-Whitewater (8 years!) and is proud of her hard work. She played a large role in the initiation of UW-W’s international alumni efforts with a very successful, and memorable trip to Hong Kong with University leadership in June.
