One of my regular lurkers mentioned to me that they just discovered that I was posting things under News on our website. Those items show up under the “Recent Happenings” heading at the bottom of the front page of our site. Unfortunately the recent posts there have mainly been of ECC friends we have lost this year including Richard Ford and Don Neidig. I also try and post occasional milestones and accomplishments there. Check there too if you want more of what’s happening at Easterday Construction. It may make more sense to put the posts here and link them from “News” so we have more consistency. The whole website is a continuing experiment, so change is constant!

Becky and I attended the Memorial Day service at the Fletcher Cemetery just outside Hamlet yesterday. It was a very respectful service and I was pleased that they had a reasonably good turnout with a spread of ages. Thank you to the veterans there and across the nation for their service. I spoke to one of the veterans that said he had war veteran family members in that cemetery dating back the the Civil War and the Spanish American War. That is a lot of history for a small cemetery in rural Indiana.
The service included reading a well written letter from Indiana State Senator Arnold, a traditional 21 gun salute and the playing of taps. It was all well done and we were glad we went.
Easterday Construction will be participating in Red Shirt Fridays again this year to show our support for our troops. All of our employees have been given red shirts like those to the right. Participation is voluntary, but on random Fridays all ECC employees wearing their red shirts get a $5 bonus. At the end of the summer, an equal amount will be contributed to Bugles Across America, a not-for-profit organization started by Tom Day of Berwyn Illinois to provide live bugle players for the funerals of service men and women.
Red Shirt Friday is a national not-for-profit organization that promotes recognition of those that serve in our armed forces and what they sacrifice for us. All of us at ECC are proud to show our support.
The Marshall County Visitors Bureau is promoting a contest to choose the best burger in Marshall County. Several Culver restaurants are on the ballot in round one, so now’s your chance to step up and vote for your local favorite.

I put a lot on the blog about the volunteer work I do… mainly because that’s at the forefront of my mind. But there’s no doubt that I’m not the only community minded employee at Easterday Construction Co., Inc. Pictured at the right are two other ECC employees, Julie Heise and Bob Cooper, at the Culver Relay for Life event. According to the website they were part of 432 participants raising nearly $42,000 in donations.
Julie is very involved in volunteer projects at the school with sports and cheerleading. Bob is a volunteer with Culver EMS and serves on their board of directors. We proud of all our employees that give back to the community. While they’re not doing this as representatives of Easterday Construction, they no doubt enhance our image with their efforts. Great Job!
