March to College Kick-off

Rose Paving has always felt that supporting charities and reaching out to the community is extremely important. That is why, 18 months ago, we joined the initiatives of Center for Companies That Care that launched a ground-breaking student mentoring program, AIM High, to ensure that 100% of participating students will graduate from high school, enter college, and gain the skills needed to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace.

A critical factor in college matriculation is a long term relationship with at least one adult person who believes in the student. Center for Companies That Care has facilitated this relationship by implementing a four-year mentoring program matching low-income, urban students with corporate mentors. A group of employees within a company will formally mentor one student through high school graduation and into college. We currently sponsor 3 students and are participating in the March to College, an annual fundraising event.

In addition to fundraising, The March to College includes a timed 5k walk / run to encourage healthy living, and a college fair, to help students set sites on college early by exposing them to information about area colleges and universities. Our company goal is to raise $3000 this year.

Nite at the Net

nite at the netThe Hinsdale Racquet Club and Catholic Charities recently held their annual ‘Nite at the Net’ charity event.  This year it featured Chicago Blackhawks Coach “Q” Joel Quenneville, who emceed the event.  The ‘Nite at the Net’ is two hours of drills, food and drinks, along with a silent and live auction.

The net proceeds benefit the Neighbors in Need fund which offers help and hope to families that are facing an imminent crisis that threatens their access to basic human needs, like food, shelter, clothing, or electricity.  The numbers just came in and over $64k was raised this year.

This year our President, Ed Campbell and his two sons, Eddie and Charlie participated.  Everyone had a great time and workout at the same time.

Flag Dedication Ceremony

flagdedication_pics1Our Bridgeview, IL-based team, along with the local Marine Corps League, performed a ceremony last month on Friday, November 14, 2014, to dedicate our new flag and pole to all the men and women that serve our country.

The ceremony consisted of several parts including the presentation of the flag, the acceptance and dedication of the flag, and the raising of the flag. The Marine Corps League, comprised of 2 riflemen and 2 flag bearers, along with our CEO, Alan Rose, and several members of management, including Jose Valdez, Branch Operations Manager and former Marine, and were in attendance to witness this special ceremony. As “Old Glory” waved proudly in front of Rose Paving corporate headquarters, all in attendance stood to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Similar flag dedications are planned for each of Rose Paving’s U.S. offices in 2015, and all will likewise honor our nation’s service men and women.

Did you know?

  • The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.
  • The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
  • When a flag becomes frayed or worn to the point it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
  • When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height.

You Sign…We Give—AGAIN!

Fundraising for the ASPCAThe trade-show season is in full swing and that means another year of networking, relationship building, and…fundraising!  Like last year, we are supporting the efforts of a worthwhile charity during our annual, multi-event fundraising campaign.  However, new this year, we selected the charity based on feedback from our loyal Facebook fans.  In October, you voted on our Facebook page to elect Animal Welfare as the cause to support.  As a result, the charity benefiting from our “You Sign…We Give” campaign in 2014 is the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®).

Fundraising for the ASPCA kicked off at the CAI-Illinois Conference and Tradeshow on Saturday, February 1st, in Rosemont, Illinois, and will continue throughout the year at events in California, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. Next up is the RFMA Annual Conference in Dallas on February 16-18.  Attendees are encouraged to visit Rose Paving’s booth #1015 during exhibit hours and autograph a banner in support of the ASPCA.  At the end of the year, results will be tallied from all events and Rose Paving will donate $5 to the ASPCA for each signature obtained.

“We are excited to serve as an ASPCA Business Ambassador and help raise awareness and funds to support its mission, which is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States,” said Chris Tanner, Rose Paving senior vice president and partner. “After a very successful fundraising campaign in 2013 for St. Jude®, we are thrilled to continue our efforts in 2014 for another worthy cause.”

Founded in 1866, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is the first animal welfare organization in North America and serves as the nation’s leading voice for animals. More than two million supporters strong, the ASPCA’s mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, the ASPCA is a national leader in the areas of anti-cruelty, community outreach and animal health services.

For information and ongoing updates about this campaign, follow us on Twitter @RosePavingCo or like Rose Paving Company on Facebook.  For information about the ASPCA, visit aspca.org.
