and other groups with a good size member base but few
volunteers. While the potential for large profits from this
fundraiser aren’t very likely it can provide a steady source of
income for those group with very little effort.
What should you take when you hit the
streets marketing your new endeavor?
Here are some of the best places to go
to get started with signing up groups

• Local Public & Private Schools
• Local Rec Council
• Sports Leagues
• Clubs
• Business Cards
• Community Centers

• Anywhere you can help each other!
These days fundraisers use and to advertise. If both parties advertise it will be the most effective communication to all of your fans and theirs.
restaurant menu ideas for kids
Tips for Kid-Friendly Designs
Eating out is something people from a
wide range of demographics enjoy –
this includes children. In fact, with kids
becoming more attuned to the whole
experience of eating where they have
some say over what they’re having for
dinner, (which is likely to NOT be brussel
sprouts or broccoli) restaurant owners
are starting to notice them as important
consumers. This is one reason why many
establishments, and not just fast food
places, try to come up with restaurant
menu ideas for their young diners.
Layouting kids’ menus can be really fun
because you get to play around with
colors (even more than usual), and add
a sense of whimsy to the entire project.
Of course, there are still a few things
to consider when trying to create the
funnest menu ever.
Creating Kid-Approved Designs
One good thing to keep in mind is that
kids don’t like to be kept waiting just
like everyone else, but this is especially
true for children. Anyone who’s heard
“Are we there yet?” 746,000 times while
en route to grandma’s can attest to that.
Restaurant owners can make the wait
easier and more enjoyable for the kids
with the menus made especially for them.
Menus are best
for toddlers who
will like solving
the mazes and
drawing on
the menus.
Menus are
sort of like “real”
menus and are better for older
kids (ages 5 and up) who are likely to have
some say on what goes on the table.
What’s Inside the Menu?
Here are some tips:
As the designer, it is your job to create an
awesome menu but how should you do
it? Here are some tips that can help you
make a menu that kids can enjoy, and can
help their parents relax.
• Having photos of the special or favorite
menu items on the children’s menu is
a good idea. Some young visitors may
not read too well yet, and pictures can
help them choose their food.
Placemat-Type or Folded-Type?
• Menus are mostly expected to make
good use of colors but this rule is
emphasized in kids’ menus because
children generally love colorful things.
There are two particularly popular types
of menus: the flat placemat variety
which commonly has some puzzles and
activities, and the folded menus with
multiple pages.
• Activities are what kids like best.
Coloring pages, mazes and connectthe-dots are great for really little kids
while older ones might like spot-the-
difference, tic-tac-toe and trivia games.
If you’d rather have reusable menus,
you can add hidden objects or magic
eye games.
• Restaurants with their own mascots
can include their own comic or story in
the menu. A cute character can help
endear the place to children. Funny
stories will have kids giggling as they
wait for their meal while stories with
lessons in them will make sure they
take home more than just satisfied
Remember, if you have trouble coming
up with designs, try consulting your inner
child – he or she will be a really big help!

wisconsin gouda
Wisconsin cheesemakers proudly
carry on the tradition of making
fine Gouda, a cheese first produced
more than 800 years ago in Holland.
Both the age and flavor of Gouda
can be determined by the color of
the wax casing: Red wax suggests
mild; yellow or clear wax suggests
aged or flavored; and black or brown
wax suggests smoked. Wisconsin
produces Gouda in many varieties:
plain, caraway, smoked, reduced fat,
and endless—a version that is easier
to slice.
FLAVOR: Light, buttery, and nutty.
GOES WELL WITH: Crackers, apples,
pears, peaches, apricots, cherries,
and nuts.

Apples are one of those fruits people

do, and in the Northern Hemisphere
they’re harvested late summer through
Cabbage is bright and crisp when raw
and mellows and sweetens the longer it’s
cooked. The cooler the weather when it’s
harvested, the sweeter it tends to taste
(this effect is called “frost kissed”).
Beets are in season in temperate
Carrots are harvested year-round in

Broccoli can be grown year-round in
temperate climates so we’ve forgotten
it even has a season. It is more sweet,
less bitter and sharp when harvested in
the cooler temperatures of fall in most
temperate areas. Unusual varieties are
harvested during the carrot’s natural
season, which is late summer and fall.
True baby carrots - not the milled down

available in the spring and early summer.
Locally grown carrots are often available
from storage through early winter even in

harvest continuing through winter in
warm and temperate climates.
Cranberries, native to North America,
are harvested in New England and the
Upper Midwest in the fall.

them in late summer and fall.
Mushrooms (wild) have different
seasons throughout the U.S. Most wild
mushrooms other than morels are inseason in summer through fall.
Okra (early fall) needs heat to grow, so a
nice long, hot summer in warmer climates
brings out its best. Look for firm, plump
pods in late summer and early fall.
Radishes (all types) are so fast-growing
Eggplant (early fall) comes into season
towards the end of summer, but bright
shiny heavy-feeling specimens stay in
season well into fall.

Fennel’s natural season is from fall
through early spring. Like most cool
weather crops, the plant bolts and turns
bitter in warmer weather.
Figs have a short second season in late
fall (the first harvest comes in summer)
just in time for Thanksgiving.
Shallots are harvested in late summer
and into fall, and are at their sweetest
when fresh.
Garlic is another produce item that we

Kale is like all hearty cooking greens cooler weather keeps it sweet.
Lettuce (in warmer climates), like other
greens, bolts and turn bitter when the
weather gets too warm, making it inseason somewhere in the U.S. year-round.
It can also be grown in low-energy
greenhouses in colder climates through
the winter.
Pears have a season that runs from midsummer well into winter, depending on
the variety and region.
Spinach, indeed, has a season. It
varies with your climate - year-round
in temperate areas, summer and fall in
cooler areas, fall through spring in warmer
Sweet Potatoes are often sold as
“yams.” They store well and are available
from local sources year-round in warmer
areas; from late summer through winter
other places.
