 WISCONSIN’S BEST TASTE ON TAP

Officials of the Wisconsin Rural Water Association (WRWA) have found the best-tasting water in Wisconsin. On Thursday March 26, 2015 a state-wide competition was held in an effort to identify the best tasting water in the state and, hopefully, the nation.

The contest was held at the annual WRWA Technical Conference in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where over 1,200 water & wastewater systems and industry personnel met for four days exchanging ideas and technology through technical sessions and exhibits. At this conference, water utilities from around the state submitted samples of their water, straight from the tap.

The winner of the event was Village of Reeseville, whose water sample was chosen by the judges as the most appealing based on a variety of criteria. “Because of the quality of Reeseville’s water, we have a good chance of winning the national taste contest in Washington, D.C.” stated Wisconsin Rural Water Association Executive Director Dave Lawrence.

The competition is part of a nationwide “Quality on Tap!” campaign to emphasize the high quality, safety and, consequently,taste of municipal tap water. Winners of state taste contests will compete in a national contest at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.   This event is part of the Rural Water Rally, an annual legislative event for the 48 state affiliates of the National Rural Water Association. The Wisconsin Rural Water Association is a non-profit organization representing most of the water and wastewater systems in the state. Its mission: “Assisting, educating and representing our members in the wise use of water resources”.

Reeseville Post Office Asks Residents to
Help Stamp Out Hunger

Support the Nation’s Largest Single-Day Food Drive

Reeseville WI – On Saturday, May 9, the National Association of Letter Carriers, United States Postal Service, Feeding America and other partners are asking the people of Reeseville to help Stamp Out Hunger. The annual food drive has grown into a national effort that provides assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive.  In 2014, generous Americans donated 72.5 million pounds of food, feeding 30 million people.  This was the 11th consecutive year of at least 70 million pounds collected by letter carriers.  The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has collected well over one billion pounds of food since it began.

“We’re proud to support this food drive,” said Postmaster Terri Wolff.  “We’re asking residents for their support to help make this another successful year.  It’s easy to make a donation: simply leave a bag of nonperishable food items by the mailbox to help your neighbors in need.”

The need for food assistance exists in every community in America.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 50 million Americans are food insecure, meaning they live at risk of hunger. Perhaps most alarming is the fact that nearly 16 million children in America are struggling with hunger. In addition 4.8 million seniors face choices between paying rent, utilities, and having nutritious food.

To participate in the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing nonperishable food items such as canned soup, canned vegetables, peanut butter, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 9.  Letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to local food banks.

For more information about the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive, visit www.feedingamerica.org and

www.nalc.org/community-service/food-drive.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
