Thank You - From Heather Berg


I want to thank each and every person who participated in the celebration of my 50th birthday party. I am so grateful to have such wonderful family and friends in my life. I had a wonderful time, reminiscing, and enjoying everyone’s company.
 
 I especially want to thank my husband & daughter for making this possible and for giving me another beautiful memory that I will never forget.
 
Special thanks go out to my wonderful parents as well; my Mom being 81 and my Dad being 84 for always being there for me and always being the rock of our family.

Thank you Aunt Janet and Uncle George for all the support you've given us through the years.

Also a special “Thank-you” to Barb's Village Square Restaurant in Corinna for hosting this celebration and providing world class food and service to the 50 + guests who attended.
 
Love and gratitude always,
Heather Berg




 
Touchdowns For Bronson
Remembering Bronson Caldwell
Walk to Benefit American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

On August 29, 2011 the unthinkable happened to my family and I - at the young age of 20, my youngest son Bronson, became a victim of suicide. Needless to say, the next few weeks were difficult to explain to anyone who had not experienced the devastation. The Berg's were there for my family and I from the moment they heard the horrible news and they continue to be there for us today. Heather went above and beyond to see that t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, and football flags were designed and created by the staff of Berg's Sportswear in memory of my beloved son Bronson. "Touchdowns for Bronson" was imprinted on each article of clothing, and the items were delivered in advance of the annual homecoming football game, which Bronson had played in throughout his high school years. The Berg's also imprinted 200 bracelets with the words, "Remembering Bronson", and made them available to be passed out at the homecoming game.
 
Shortly after the homecoming game, I was informed that a local walk was planned to raise money for the 'American Foundation for Suicide Prevention'. Though the pain I was feeling at the time, and still feel today was/is very "raw", I felt that by forming a team and raising money for the cause, I would be paying tribute to my son. I spoke with Heather and asked if it would be possible to get more t-shirts for those participating in the walk with me. Within a couple of days, 20 or more shirts were donated in time for the walk. Heather also arrived on the morning of the walk to offer her support. 
 

 
I didn't know what to expect on the day of the walk. I was still in a mental daze from the previous 2 months. After arriving at the walk site, I was pleased to see so many people there in support of all the mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters and other family and friends who carry the burden of losing someone they love to suicide. I began to understand that the walk wasn't only to raise money but also to raise awareness. It helped to listen to others who had experienced the same loss as me, and that I was not alone in my grief. Today, as time passes and the healing begins ever so slowly, I am faced with the fact that suicide is not something that many can talk about. It makes people feel uncomfortable, which is exactly why the awareness walks are so critical in reaching out to people and conveying the message that it's okay to talk about suicide, and it's okay to share feelings with others. If enough people are able to do this, then perhaps a suicide can be prevented. If we can begin to communicate these feelings, perhaps we can help others that may be faced with the difficult consideration of whether life is worth living. One thing is clear however, suicide touches all walks of life and we must break down the barriers and the feelings of guilt and shame and speak up when we need to be heard and actively listen when someone has something to say.
 
I was fortunate enough to have an extended support group of family, friends, and colleagues by my side on the day of the race. Thanks to their support, and the graciousness of my employer, who matched all donations, I was able to raise over $1,500 dollars in less than two weeks for this important cause. I will forever be grateful for the generosity extended to my family and I by the Berg's and others; some who were complete strangers, during the darkest days I will ever endure.
Respectfully submitted - Renea Qua

Employee Spotlight - Norma Dyer

Berg Sportswear would like to congratulate;

NORMA DYER!

70th Birthday

Norma recently celebrated her 70th Birthday! All gathered at the Covered bridge restaurant in Guilford, Maine for a nice meal and get-together with Family, Friends and Co-workers.
 
Norma has been the office manager at Berg Sportswear for 22 years. She is responsible for ALL accounts receivable, accounts payable, Payroll, Human Resources, etc.  and any other surprises Bob and Heather throw at her. She keeps a watchful eye on ALL. She truly is a dynamo in the office. She never misses work, is never late, never sits still, and never complains. To think she does all this at the age of 70 is truly a blessing. The younger generation of ANY age should think twice before they say, “they are too tired” or “can’t” do something or “can’t learn something” at work. She even stepped into the computer age with us! Learning emails, computerized bookkeeping, computerized checkbooks etc.
 
Norma has been an integral part of Berg Sportswear’s success just about from the beginning. Thru the “Ralph” days and now the “Bob” days. Neither Ralph or Bob could have enjoyed the success of Berg Sportswear without the amazing support and contributions of Norma Dyer!
 
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Bob and Heather Berg.  



Customer Spotlight - Melby's Market and Eatery
Berg Sportswear
Customer Spotlight 
“Melby’s Market and Eatery”
North Waterford, Maine
1-5-12


Berg Sportswear would like to congratulate MELBY’S MARKET of North Waterford Maine on being selected to our “Customer Spotlight”!
 
Owner / operators Paul and Kay LeGare have been customers of Berg Sportswear since 1985? Or so.

Why are they in the Spotlight? Paul and Kay have taken one of our designs and really “RUN WITH IT”. They have sold approxamatlty 180 dozen of our “Wicked Pissah” T-Shirts! Yes, this is a very popular design but Melbys has taken it to a whole new level.
 
 
Keep in mind. This is just a small local general store tucked in the woods of North Waterford, Maine. No Beaches, no tourists attractions just a bunch of peaceful roads and trees.
 
   
Paul and Kay work tirelessly. They are constantly merchandising their store and displays. Changing things around, different signage and props etc. The explosive sales of the Pissah T-Shirt are a direct result of the LeGare’s constant merchandising and hard work.

I encourage you to go visit this hidden treasure called MELBY’S MARKET and EATERY! Not only do they sell T-Shirts. They have a Full inside eating area. The desert treats are delicious! All food is home cooked on the premises including their world famous “Buffalo Burger”.
 
Once again, congratulations to the fine folks at Melby’s !  

- Bob Berg, Owner

Thanksgiving 2011

The Lovely Ladies of Berg Sportswear


Catherine, Norma, Heather, Jen, Cheryl, Jennie

As per tradition, Berg Sportswear takes the time to thank their hardworking employees this holiday season by providing a tasty turkey for everyone to take home.  The turkeys were purchased at P&L Market, a local market right here in Corinna Maine.

Happy Thanksgiving To All!!

Moving on Party 6-17-11
On 6-17-11 Berg Sportswear recently took time to say thanks to one of its own.

Sym Buzzell

       
 
Sumuria Buzzell who has been the embroidery supervisor for the last 6 years, recently accepted a new career change in North Carolina. So the Berg crew took time to have a little get together. Sym was the guest of honor and as such was awarded the “Lobster of the Day”. “Sym” will be greatly missed as she did a super job, and really made the embroidery dept. hum along at full speed. Good luck in your new surroundings. Thank you Sym! 

    
                                  Christian Roderiques                                   Escargot
 
Berg Sportswear provided lunch for all employees. Fresh lobster rolls and crabmeat rolls, were the main course, and escargot (yes snails!) were the appetizer. The lunch was purchased at Central Maine Shellfish, a local seafood store right here in Corinna, Maine.

Marcia & her "Horse Dolly"

   
 
   
 
We also made another presentation. Marcia Meagher a long time employee of Berg Sportswear was presented with a "Custom Tricked Out” horse themed dolly. Now you must understand that we have 10 or 15 dollies at our facility. BUT, this was absolutely Marcia’s favorite, and was not to be lost or otherwise used harshly, IOW, she never let it out of her sight. Now, Marcia is quite the horse nut. So we took the 2 wheel handcart and added: Handmade leather handles, a solid steel mural of a horse, real spurs from a horse saddle, a riding crop, a custom palomino paint job, and the initials M.M. etched in the base. Needless to say she loved it! The cart was made by Christian Roderiques another fine Berg employee.
 
And that’s what’s happening at Berg Sportswear!
