New Mission Statement and Team Logos!

New Mission Statement and Team Logos!

re:TH!NK has exciting news to share! The Leadership Council took time this past summer to discuss the current and future state of re:TH!NK and has updated the mission statement to reflect our current and potential priorities.
The mission statement is now more reflective of the kind of organization and the kind of work we are involved with re:TH!NK effectively engages the community in creating a healthier environment and opportunities to improve quality of life in Winnebago County.

Along with our updated mission statement, each team now has their very own team logo! Team members gave input on final selections from a cohesive color palate. As re:TH!NK grows and evolves, so can our teams and their logos.

A big thank you to Melissa Pingel, a member of the re:TH!NK Alcohol Action Team, for all her work this summer. Melissa completed three alcohol environmental scans this summer helping the team ensure all festivals and events were covered. With the results from these scans, the team meets with event organizers to discuss how we can collaborate to ensure that alcohol is being served and sold in a safe way. Some of the recommendations from these meetings include requiring all attendees over the age of 21 who will be consuming alcohol to wear wristbands and providing CHEERS responsible beverage server trainings to event staff. Thanks to Melissa for all her work and dedication to the team!

The Menasha Police Department is a member of the re:TH!NK Alcohol Action Team. Recently, they have become an active member in bringing our local CHEERS! Responsible Beverage Service Training to Menasha. Staff at the Menasha Police Department were very excited to have the opportunity to bring this new training to the area, so local liquor license holders could get further training how to responsibly serve and sell alcohol to patrons.

Most recently, the Menasha Police Department held their first CHEERS! Training in April. Officer Daniel Hoernke has helped spearhead this effort, with support from Chief Styka, and through the expansion of the CHEERS! Program, we had over 40 individuals attend representing over 10 establishments at the first training. It is through these efforts that we hope to create a safer alcohol environment in Winnebago County. We thank the Menasha Police Department for helping us in our efforts to expand the CHEERS! Responsible Beverage Service Training and for being a strong partner in building a healthier and safer alcohol environment in our community!
