Lakewood Ranch Toyota Goes Full Green... and Red

The new 78,000 sq. ft. eco-friendly facility became the first green-certified dealership in Southwest Florida. Its design emphasized Green construction as the driving factor from the project's inception. Recycled materials such as the facility's structural steel and aluminum were used in construction, as well as concrete and carpet tiles to parking lot asphalt.

Borroughs 2012 Great Chili Cook-off
Hot Times for Cold Weather

The average temperature in Kalamazoo, MI during the month of January is eighteen degrees, making January the perfect month to launch our first annual corporate chili cook-off.

Six participants entered, and lined up crock-pots of chili, each labeled with a number. Small cups were provided for the thirty tasters, then votes were placed in a container for tallying later. The eight degree weather outside only served to accent the fun. After everyone enjoyed a bowl or two of their top choice, Mari Blain was pronounced the official winner.

Honorable mention goes to the Borroughs IT Manager, Kai Stankey, who cooked up a fine pot of his delectable white chicken chili.
