Eli’s Featured at Cafe Borders in June; Stop in and pick up a paper back edition of My Life By Bill Clinton

Long summer days are a perfect time to visit Borders Books & Music. There are three great reasons to visit Borders in the near future:

1. Borders is featuring our Turtle Brownie and a small premium coffee for $2.99. A great treat and a great deal.

2. Through June 19th, Borders is offering 25% off the regular price of one item. Visit the Borders web site at to print your coupon.

3. Vintage Books just released the first paperback edition of My Life by Bill Clinton. In the earlier editions, it was unclear where Bill Clinton visited on Thursday, March 12th, 1992 in Illinois. Now it reads:

In Illinois, I visited (Eli’s) Cheesecake with black, Hispanic, and Eastern European immigrant employees to highlight the company’s committment to giving all employees who hadn’t finished high school access to a GED Program. I met a new citizen from Romania who said he would cast his first vote for me.

Thanks Bill and Thanks Borders for featuring Eli’s.

Be Sure to Vote today!

In Illinois, this is has been a very quiet election. With so much attention
devoted to the surrounding states, Illinois was determined by both parties not
to in play, so we received almost no visits from the President or Senator Kerry,
while our friends in Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan were hard pressed to avoid

Hillary Clinton visited our bakery. It was the week before Super Tuesday and
hard fought primaries in Illinois, Michigan and the South. For his last event in
Illinois, Clinton came to Eli’s to tour our bakery and learn about Eli’s U., our
on site GED program. That week was considered the turning point in the campaign
and resulted in us bringing giant Eli’s Cheesecakes to the Presidential
Inaugurals in 93 and 97.

Today is a great day for American democracy. Take advantage of your right to







A very historic election on November 2nd and a very interesting map, which I
wnated to add to the Blog.
