It is with great happiness I report the results of our Holiday Do Gooder Pie sale to support and raise awareness for Laughing Bear Bakery We sold 87 pies in December. Which means St. Patrick Center will be getting a total of 87 pies! (We already sent 50 pies over to cover them for the holiday week!) A huge thanks to all of you that bought pies and to Civil Design Inc. for splitting the cost on an additional pie to be donated. 100% of the proceeds from all sales were used to buy more pies!
The re-cap of our November/December Do Gooder Pie sale shows we will end up purchasing over 410 pies during this holiday season from Laughing Bear. They put ex-offenders back to work making tasty pies. Please, please look for their baked goods when you are out and about. It also meant you, our incredible customers, the Civil Life and Civil Design ended up being responsible for 115 pies donated to Peter & Paul Community Services and 87 to St. Patrick Center. Both of those organizations do good work providing programs for our areas homeless.
This is a huge bright spot in what turned out to be a below average sales year for the Civil Life. However, it reminded me, all of our staff here and all of our incredible customers that together we can do a lot of good and that it takes all of us working together to make this crazy world a better place. Thank you for being our customer. Thank you for believing in the Civil Life.
We wish you the best in 2019! Stay tuned to the Civil Life. 2019 will be our best year yet!
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
