Six Pines Farms
My name is Garth Russell Sanderson. I went to Six Pines Farm on June 26, 2012. I really like to go visit Six Pines Farm and be outside. My favourite part of the day is going on hay rides, looking at the old tractors, going up in the tree house and petting the goats and sheep. I also observed a pot belly pig, a llama, chickens, geese, turkeys, dogs, cats, and bunnies. I fed baby cows some milk from a bottle.
When we walked on the trail through the bush, the tour guide said to stay on the trail because there was poison ivy in the bush.
A big thank you to all the Six Pines staff, who kept us safe from the animals and the poison ivy along the trail. Hopefully I will see them again next year.
Randy Caron works on the sort line and assists on the recycling floor, and also does general house cleaning. He does very well at all these tasks. Randy likes to cut grass and hopes to have his own lawn maintenance business some day. He also likes fixing bicycles in his spare time.
Keep up the good work Randy.

Hi my name is Jackie Miles. I work in Contract Manufacturing at Madison. I have been off for several months resting up after having some surgery and I am glad to be back with my friends and co-workers. I travel here with my best friend Jodi Berko on Winnipeg Transit. It’s almost shut down and I will be making summer plans.
Look what we built…. Les Burton, a development coach, had the neat idea to bring his table saw to Madison and offer training in woodworking skills to interested parties. The group started making wooden crates for carrying and storage. They then got wood through some amazing contacts at Windsor plywood and Home Depot, and decided to build a picnic table for the side courtyard. The screws used were recycled and they did the sanding and staining as well The project looks great and we now have a wonderful place to sit and spend time in the sun and shade. Thanks for all your hard work everyone and look for more home made surprises
Game Review—Sly Cooper 2
I’ve decided to start with the second Sly because it has a better concept. Being made for PS2 is no excuse for the first game to be too complicated for us to finish. The story is overshadowed as we focus on the bottles and have little interest in playing the game. The second game is better than the first. We better understand the attraction between Sly (the raccoon and thief) and Carmelita Fox (the cop). Sly and his friends, Bentley (the turtle) and Murray (the hippo) go on missions to get the clockwork parts out of the hands of a disco king wannabe named Dimitri, the self-proclaimed “Lord of the Sands” named Rajah, a crazy brainwasher named the Contessa, a caveman who dreamed of taming the north named Jean Bison, a small bird who got picked on because he couldn’t fly named Sandeago, and finally a dirty cop named Neyla.
Feel free to ask me for help with the game. It does have a warning that people with epilepsy should see a doctor before playing.
Good luck with the game.

Introducing New Team Members
Hi. My name is Grant Ross and I have been working in Contract Manufacturing since the beginning of May. Before I came to Madison, I had my own job delivering the Winnipeg Free Press. I used to get up at 2:00 in the morning, and work until 6:00am. I tried to have a social life in between my job and sleep. I have also worked the midnight shift at Superstore, in shipping. I am enjoying working during the day now, and doing lawn care in the Maples area. I have started working on the Madison shipping and receiving team, learning to move and wrap skids. Tom McDonald is working with me because he is our team leader. I like getting to know other people who are in my group and work here.
Let me know if you need anything.
Hi, I’m Kay.
I just started working in Contract Manufacturing as a Development Coach. My experience so far has been fantastic and the people are amazing. I like the mix of fun and work. I’m learning a lot about the people I work with and production.
A little about myself, I have a 3 year old daughter named Violet, I really like shoes, and I volunteer a lot with Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association. I recently joined the Madison Health and Safety Committee, and look forward to a great summer.
If you see me say Hi!
Hello from Florence, Dorothy, Raymond, Adam, Alvin, Ian, Cory, Carol and Dennis. We work together at the 360 Portage Avenue Hydro building. Some of us take a bus to Hydro from William, some come to Hydro from Madison every morning and others travel straight from home.
Our team consists of nine very motivated and hard working people. Six of us work at hydro five days a week and three of us split our time between Hydro and/or the University of Winnipeg, Plymouth and Madison.
We are always aware that we represent ImagineAbility when we are at Hydro and we practice good business etiquette. We work hard to present our company in a positive light and to do a good job. We are proud to be part of ImagineAbility.
