R&R Insurance has proudly supported the United Way for many years. Our West Bend office is one of seven Washington County organizations recognized as pacesetters. Collectively those seven organizations have raised over $201,000 in 2013! The ad on the right was in the West Bend Daily News.
R&R West Bend has raised money through various activities such as a candy fundraiser, Ugly Christmas Sweater contest, hosting 3 office lunches, and basket raffles to name a few. One of this year's highlights was participating in the United Way's Kickoff Campaign where 61,048 macaroni meals were packaged by 528 volunteers ... in 1.5 hours! This was enough to help 6 food pantries in Washington County!

This weekend is the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson - and what a celebration weekend it will be for Milwaukeeans.
There will be thousands of motorcycles converging on Milwaukee, so it's good to know the rules of the road for motorcycles and how to drive safer around motorcycles. Here are a few key points from this great article by Mike Rodgers:
- When making left turns, look for traffic...then look AGAIN for bikers
- Let them swerve
- Stay back
- Make a conscious note
Have fun and be CAREFUL out there this weekend!

R&R's own Riley Enright has a featured article in the Milwaukee Business Journal as a sales executive with an active and healthy lifestyle.
"I've always been considered a fairly energetic individual." Anyone who has worked with Riley know that truer words were never spoken! Riley's active lifestyle outside of the office has been a great example when speaking with clients about their own wellness initiatives: "to best explain it, to best understand it - live it."
After growing up in a family of 10, fitness and being active has always been a part of Riley's lifestyle. As an adult, what had started as a few casual bike rides has now grown in to biking three days a week, with 50- to 60-mile weekend rides, plus running and adding tennis in to his regular routine.
Not only is Riley riding for his own well-being, but he also rides for charity. The Firehouse 50 in Cable, WI is one of the largest and oldest citizen races in the Midwest and raises money for the Grand View Fire Department. And in an effort to raise money for the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation, Riley rides from Door County to Milwaukee.
Great job, Riley!
