A year ago, I decided I needed more full time year round work. After many temporary jobs, I now have been at a business called DD sling in Mequon for 6 months. We sew slings and tie-downs for trucks, trailers and manufacturing companies.

I am looking forward to  serving  on the pastoral council to help make our Parish the best it can be.
