My name is Dale Banister. My partner in life, and this venture, is Kristine Pero. I have been part of the Green Lake area since 1972, when my parents purchased a cottage on Dartford Bay. Five years later, we left the Chicago suburbs to become full-time residents of Green Lake. After graduating high school here, I attended college in Madison. I then moved back to Chicago, L.A. and back to Chicago, again. I was under the impression that, in order to be successful, you needed to be in a "big city". Although it may be true that "big city" life pays better, nothing can be more satisfying than the quality of life in a small town, where it's "the good life" and most stress takes a vacation. It took six years, (I was young) but I finally realized that Green Lake was where I wanted to be and success was not all about money. That was 1987, and I have been here since.
My father, and grandfather, instilled in me that if you are going to do something, you should do it to be the best. I have always tried to live by that advice. Because of them, I can say that I strive to produce my best results and I would never deliver a product that I am not completely satisfied with.
At "The Sawdust Factory", Kris and I are focused on providing products and services with the highest level of customer satisfaction and we will do everything we can to meet that expectation.
