Remember trying to stay awake for hours on end as a kid to watch an appearance by your favorite actor or musician? It was likely the only time that par- ents actually let their children stay up way past their bedtimes and the kids certainly weren't going to let that go to waste! Some years later, there were even "slumber parties" whose theme revolved around the telethon. It was an event! This coming Labor Day will boast the marathon for their 48th consecu- tive year in fundraising. Howev- er, the telethon will reduce the hours from the decades long- standing 21 1/2 hr marathon to only 6 hours. This is also the first year that the telethon will only be shown on a "single net- work." Not only is the number of years staggering in and of itself, but the millions of dollars raised during those years is simply as- tounding. In 1998, the marathon was the first to be broadcast via Internet simulcast worldwide, opening yet new doors! In the early years, the tally of dollars raised was counted by hand, now of course, it is electronic. And what of Jerry Lewis him- self?. Jerry was a beloved comedi- an of his day. Who could ever for- get the antics of Lewis and his side kick, "Rat Pack" member Dean Martin. Born in 1926 in New Jersey, Lewis first found fame as part of a groundbreaking nightclub act with his partner, Dean Martin. The comedy team of Martin and Lewis made their screen debut in "My Friend Irma" in 1949 and starred in 16 films together through 1956. He then flew solo in dozens of films after that! Little wonder he is ap- propriately crowned the "King of Comedy"! But Lewis, as with all comedians, has a serious side, one of a humanitarian. Lewis be- gan making local and national televised appeals on behalf of the newly founded Muscular Dystro- phy Association (MDA) in the early 1950s. He has been the or- ganization's national chairman since 1952 and has served as the "number one volunteer" of the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon since 1966, raising more than $2 billion for the cause. In 2011, the then 85 year old Lewis stepped down as the "major host" and it has yet to be announced who will be the host of the 2013 marathon. Things certainly have changed! Where does all of that money go? Children and adults with muscle diseases benefit directly from dollars raised during the Telethon through such services as: Specialized care at more than 200 MDA clinics and more than 35 MDA/ALS centers Free flu vaccinations Assistance with obtaining and repairing all types of durable medical equipment, including wheelchairs, leg braces and com- munication devices Support groups for individuals and family members MDA summer camp sessions for thousands of children Ongoing public education and up-to-date information. Research is another important piece of the puzzle. Without re- search and striving for greater understanding of these diseases, there would be no advancement in treatment! Minnesota's own Mayo Clinic has been a contribu- tor to some of these studies as well. So where does Casey's Gener- al Store fit into all of this, you might ask? They are sponsoring a fundraiser by asking for a do- nation of $1.00 for a medallion. It takes $800.00 to send just one child to summer camp for a week. But wait, there is a coupon attached for a Buy 1 Get 1 Free for any 20oz. 7UP product! You can also donate $5.00 for a medallion and you will receive a coupon for a Buy 1 Get 1 Free of 12 pack of any 7UP product! You get a great deal and help out a great cause, in a single swoop! The Richmond Casey's Gener- al Store is very active in its fundraising efforts for deserving charities, which also includes the fundraiser for Gillette's Chil- dren's Hospital. Casey's has re- ceived an award for their work in 2009 for the MDA Summer Camp program and has been rec- ognized for many others! Help Casey's send a child to camp! Our local MDA Summer Camps are held at Camp Courage in Maple Lake, MN, right in our back yard. Camp Courage hosts many different kinds of camps based on the diagnosis of the campers. These children are af- forded the opportunity to inter- act and make new friends with kids experiencing similar types of challenges, making their dif- ferences seem rather small. most will carry their camp expe- rience with them the year through, until the next year, if they are so lucky as to attend camp again. The promotion runs through the close of the MDA Telethon Labor Day weekend! Out and About! Still time to train for the Maple Grove Triathlon - Dare to TRI Event.

Fred Teal of Teal's Manage- ment, Cold Spring, MN, was in- ducted into the Minnesota Gro- cers Association Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding service and exemplary contribu- tions to Minnesota's food indus- try. The award was presented by MGA Board Chairman, Glen Gust and President, Jamie Pfuhl at the MGA Annual Conference in Brainerd, MN, on July 28, 2013. The event was attended by more than 400 members of the food industry. Fred Teal was introduced to the grocery industry when his parents purchased a Red Owl grocery store in Cass Lake, MN in 1942. Teal grew up working in the store; he swept floors, bagged potatoes, stocked shelves, and worked for many years as the store's meat cutter. In 1953 the store was renamed Teal's Super- market. He joined his father George as a full-time employee in 1960, and after his father's re- tirement, he took over and began purchasing additional stores. By the early 1990s the family busi- ness had expanded to include multiple store locations across Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, and spanned three generations. Now in business for over 70 years, Teal's Management is en- tering its fourth generation and has grown from a family compa- ny with one store and twenty employees to an operation of 10 stores with 700 employees. Though retired, Teal continues to guide the family business and enjoys spending free time on his cattle farm and hunting. Teal and his wife Connie have been married 56 years and have 5 children, 12 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. Fred Teal has earned respect and admiration for his outstand- ing commitment to the communi- ty and food industry. The dedica- tion he showed his employees and his outstanding work ethic made this induction to the MGA hall of Fame a well deserved ac- knowledgement.
