In October 2000, the Con Forms’ team wanted to make a unique holiday contribution to the local Salvation Army by building an oversized red kettle to support their donation efforts.

With the welding and engineering experts on our team, they dove into constructing (what was at the time) the largest Salvation Army Kettle in the country. Many of our team members donated time and effort to construct and prepare the kettle for the 2000 Grafton Salvation Army Christmas Parade. It also made an appearance in that year’s Holiday Parade in Downtown Milwaukee.

Con Forms’ employees kicked off the donations, and the kettle accepted contributions tossed in from the parade attendees.

The kettle’s current whereabouts are unknown. Let us know if you are a Grafton history buff and have any ideas about where it may be found.

Please think of those in need in your communities and support a local charity organization this holiday season.
