NEW LIBRARY DIRECTOR ANNOUNCED

            The new Reeseville Public Library director, Kay Kromm, started in her new role mid-November.  Kay grew up in Reeseville working for her father at Reeseville Ridge Nursery. After graduating from Dodgeland she earned a bachelor’s degree in Forest Ecology and Management from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

            For the last eight years, Kay has worked for the Nebraska Department of Agriculture in the Entomology and Pesticide Programs.  This work was fulfilling, however after starting a family Kay and her husband wanted to return to Reeseville to raise their daughter close to family and friends. Kay is quite excited about the career change.  She is looking forward to giving back to the community of her youth.  She hopes that her science background will bring a unique perspective to the library.  She is also very excited to utilize her creative skills to develop new library programs and continue the current favorites.  Please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself over the next few months. 


 THE REFUGE

            The Refuge would like to thank the community for their support in making our first annual Thanksgiving Dinner a huge success! We were able to bless 84 people with food and fellowship. The Lord has given us all so many things to be thankful for. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!


THE GATHERING SOURCE FOOD PANTRY AND RESOURCE CENTER

    As the end of the year draws near, we at The Gathering Source have much to be grateful for.  We were able to expand our community education and services by offering parenting workshops, cooking classes, coupon classes, a seminar on Part D Medicare Open Enrollment, hosted Energy Services to take energy assistance applications and were able to bring Coffee with a Cop to Reeseville. 

   Along with the expanding need in our communities, we have been blessed with the growing support of the individuals in our communities, businesses, churches, and organizations who volunteer, fund raise, donate, and support our mission with their good will.

   We look forward to 2015 with a renewed commitment in our partnership with our communities and helping those in need.  We will be expanding our community education and services starting with a series on “Budget Basics.”  Look for more seminars on couponing and grocery shopping.  We will continue to present cooking classes and parenting workshops. Please stop in and sign up for these upcoming classes so we can plan around times that are convenient for most.  Check out our Facebook page or thegatheringsource.orgfor upcoming events.
