We Energies women assist at Habitat for Humanity project

A group of 10 We Energies women recently volunteered their personal time and talent to help with a Women Build Habitat for Humanity project in Milwaukee.

On two consecutive Saturdays in August, they painted the interior of a house under construction and prepared the exterior of an existing home for painting.

The volunteer activity was organized by the Women’s Development Network, one of our company’s affinity groups. The group has participated in other Women Build projects for Habitat by helping with dry walling, painting and other construction work for new homes, built in partnership with the homeowners.

2012 Cookie Book distribution schedule set

This year’s Cookie Book, which will be distributed in November, continues the tradition we started nearly a century ago and features family favorites submitted by our customers.

Many of the recipes are named after a beloved grandma for baking the best cookies. Grandma Diekelman’s Fruit Cookies, Grandma Strehlow’s Old-Fashion Caramels and Grandma Ewald Cookies are among the 36 recipes featured in the 2012 book. Three gluten-free recipes also are included.

The Cookie Book has been in the works since early June when recipes were reviewed, selected and tested. More details about this year’s book will be posted in early November, but you can get the distribution schedule today.
