At the end of our life, what matters more than how charitable we have been throughout our life

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so...

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so important to raise up great children that become productive members of society. The best way to raise children is by example. The way that we live as parents is likely what they will become. I am convinced that philanthropy and helping others is the key to living a successful life.

I am Ryan Van Wagenen and originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and now spend a great deal of time in Denver, Colorado. I have lived my whole life in Utah and Colorado and love the people in these regions.

Danger Zones - Driving in Colorado

Fatal crashes may have one cause or multiple contributing factors. The number of drivers in Colorado involved in deadly accidents while using alcohol or drugs has steadily increased in recent years. Even so, careless/inattentive driving is the leading contributing factor among drivers in fatal crashes.

Recognizing the growing problem of distracted driving, federal transportation researchers in 2012 started categorizing Careless/Inattentive Driving as a separate contributing factor. For more information and patterns over the last seven years check out the interactive map here: knowledgeinitiative.org/interactive-crash-map

    Interactive Crash Map - Deadly Colorado Drivers
    Have you ever wondered where the most drunk driving accidents occur in Colorado? How about the roads where you might be more likely to encounter dangerous distracted drivers? The map above makes it easy for you to see the Danger Zones in Colorado by tracking reports of fatal crashes related to alcohol, drugs and distracted driving.

A note from our President and CEO, Andrew Schuman: “With every new year comes new opportunities. Last week, Hammond’s Brands announced that Old Dominion Peanut's manufacturing facility in Norfolk, Virginia will be closing so that we are able to better serve the future needs of our customers. Part of the Old Dominion Peanut operations will move to the Hammond’s Brands headquarters in Denver, Colorado. We will also transfer some production to a third party under a long-term co-manufacturing agreement, which will allow us to bring some great new product segments to market in the near future, in addition to our current products which will continue to be produced to our 100 year old recipes. Please rest assured that closing the plant does not mean the end of Old Dominion Peanut Company. We believe it is the beginning of an exciting next chapter of our business. Please direct questions to media@hammondsbrands.com."
