IRES US. FAMILY INSP

FAMILY IS EVERYTHING Fisk Johnson, 5th generation SC Johnson A thought that is with me every moment of the day. As a father - as a 5th generation Johnson. For years, we've stated that SC Johnson is a family company - but I just want to explain what that really means. To start, it means that we don't report to Wall Street. The decisions we make come down to caring for you and the world we share -not what analysts want to hear. And, quite frankly, that doesn't always mean doing what's easy. But when I go to bed at night, I know what we're trying to do is right. It also means that all those products you've come to trust over the years - well you can trust that they're made with your family’s interest in mind. Trust that they're right for your house and our world. Times may have changed since my great greatgrandfather started SC Johnson, but the inspiration behind what we do remains exactly the same.

GREETING On behalf of the Village of Mount Pleasant, we want to welcome you to our community. We are proud to bring you the 2016 Community Guide, for all things Mount Pleasant. Through insight and vision we have witnessed a large growth pattern both in industry and housing development. As a village, we look to continue this pattern in the coming years. With a population of 26,375, Mount Pleasant offers a small-town sense of community while still allowing for easy access to larger metropolitan areas.

Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport and downtown is just minutes from our border, and Chicago is just to our south. The Village of Mount Pleasant is one of the fastest developing communities in southeastern Wisconsin. Located on the Western shore of Lake Michigan, the village offers a variety of indoor and outdoor recreational activities. Whether you are here for a short visit or a long-term stay, we look forward to helping you make Mount Pleasant your own.

We are an active, growing faith community committed to answer God’s call to prayer, formation and outreach to those in need.

All are welcome!
