Three cheers for Rimland parents Karen Muyskens Ryan and Tom Ryan who, along with their friends, recently held a Culver’s fundraiser to support Rimland. Culver’s is a family-favorite, national restaurant franchise known for their made-to-order ButterBurgers, their famous Fresh Frozen Custard, and their genuine Wisconsin Cheese Curds. Culver’s is one of many restaurants and fast-food establishments that partner with non-profits to help raise funds. Karen and Tom took care of all the details, including arranging the event with their local Culver’s and spreading the word to their friends and other Culver’s patrons. On the day of the fundraiser, Culver’s donated to Rimland ten percent of the bills of patrons who mentioned Rimland when they ordered. We would like to thank Karen and Tom for generously organizing this fundraiser and for raising $312.52 on Rimland’s behalf.
Our son is nonverbal, but by his body language, we gather that he is proud, happy, he feels accepted and important, and that he belongs to an extended family – Rimland. Rimland nurtures his self-esteem, structures his daily activities, and installs goals. He used to be crabby, but now we often see him smile.
