THANK YOU Classic Lanes for everything you did in the aftermath of the Sikh Temple shootings. Al will never post a sign telling people about the 37 straight hours he stayed on-duty nor will Classic Lanes boast about the double hit they took by way of food and drink donated and business lost during those days. The selfless and humble actions of Classic Lanes has set an example for me and, if I may be so bold, to all businesses in Oak Creek and members of the South Suburban Chamber of Commerce.
As an attorney, I am going to use a bit of legalese to set a Challenge to recognize the citizenship of Classic Lanes and give back to our business colleague:
Martin Law Office, S.C., a Wisconsin corporation with its principal office in the City of Oak Creek and a member in good standing with the South Suburban Chamber of Commerce, hereby challenges all corporations with a place of business in the City of Oak Creek, all members of the South Suburban Chamber of Commerce, and any other corporation, to match its gift of $250.00 for the benefit of Classic Lanes. Said gifts are to be used at the discretion of Classic Lanes.
The willingness of any business to answer this Challenge can be made publicly by posting a comment to this article or privately by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Said Challenge will remain open until 5:00pm on the 21st day of September, 2012. Martin Law Office, S.C. shall post a weekly reminder of this Challenge on the Oak Creek Patch and through the South Suburban Chamber of Commerce list serve. Martin Law Office, S.C. shall keep a private log of all corporations who have responded to this challenge. Beginning on the 24th day of September, 2012, Martin Law Office, S.C. shall contact all corporations that have responded to this Challenge to provide information on donating said funds.
