For The Love of Liberty

As we celebrate the 4th of July, its easy to get caught up in all the barbeque's, fireworks and social gatherings andDeclaration of Independence forget the reason why we celebrate this day; our independence. Like Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and Adams, Rhyme believes in liberty and freedom. Being an independently owned, local business, we can appreciate the freedom we’ve been given to run a business that has its own unique culture and beliefs.

The Declaration of Independence and Constitution defined who we are as a country. Like those important documents, a company’s mission statement defines who they are and who they want to be. Rhyme’s mission statement reads, “At Rhyme we pledge to provide an atmosphere that promotes personal pride and teamwork, with a driving commitment to listening, learning, respect and fairness with our employees, vendors, and clients.”

A major part of our mission is doing whatever we can to have a positive impact on our communities development, whether it’s volunteering our time at local fundraisers, coaching and mentoring youth or providing scholarships to high school graduates. Here are some examples of what we’ve been able to accomplish in the first half of 2015.

Building for Life Campaign

Divine Savior Hospital, located in Portage, WI, is investing in a new 106,000 sq. ft. Wellness Center called La Vita. The new Center is set to open late 2015 and will be a place where all residents can go and focus on bettering themselves. Rhyme is proud to be a major supporter of this journey to a better, healthier community.

Rhyme Time Scholarships

Six Rhyme Time Scholarships were awarded this year, making this our largest group ever! Six students from Monroe, Janesville Parker, Evansville, Janesville Craig and Portage High School were selected. Without the tremendous support we receive at our annual fundraiser, the Steve Ennis Memorial Golf Classic, we wouldn’t be able to continue growing the Rhyme Time foundation, so thank you everyone for your support over the years!

The Fourth of July is a day to pay homage to the Founding Fathers, a day to honor the brave men and women who have fought and died to maintain these freedoms. We thank you for your service.

  • National Preparedness Month: Preventing Heat Illness at Work

    September is National Preparedness Month, an observation with the goal of raising awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters or emergencies that could occur at any given time. Understanding how to prepare for, react to, and respond to emergencies is an important safety skillset to have as we deal with emergencies each and every day. Most of us are taught in school how to react to tornados and earthquakes, however there are many other areas that can pose a threat to us that we often aren’t taught about or know the importance of. One such area is heat illness, a condition caused by strenuously working in the heat.
