VILLAGE PHARMACY

 

50% Off Remaining Merchandise

          After 38 years in business, Jim & Joan made the decision in November to close the Village Pharmacy in Reeseville.   While the decision to close

our pharmacy was a difficult one, it was exciting to work with Shopko to ensure your prescription needs would be met without interruption and at  the level of care to which you’ve become accustomed.  All hard copy and electronic prescription information is available at Shopko Pharmacy 200 Commerce Drive, Columbus, WI. 

            Remaining merchandise at the Reeseville location will be offered to the public starting at 50% off the retail price and with increasingly greater discounts as we get closer to closing our doors forever.   

            Jim and Joan thank everyone for their loyal patronage.  It has been an honor serving the community the past 38 years.  Merry Christmas to all

and God’s Blessing for the future!

DODGELAND HIGH SCHOOL FUNDRAISER

            Students and staff at Dodgeland High School raised $1,415.81 to benefit The Gathering Source, a food pantry and community resource center that serves all of the Dodgeland School District. Shown here are (from left): Lori Horton, Dodgeland Student Council Advisor; Emily Gruenwald, Student Council Vice-President; Trae Otte, Student Council President; Jeff Sauer, Dodgeland High School Principal; Laurel Lunde and Sharon Snow from The Gathering Source.

            The Dodgeland Student Council held a week-long fundraiser to benefit The Gathering Source, a food pantry and community resource center located in Reeseville that serves the Dodgeland School District.  They set a goal of $500 which would buy food for 1000 meals through the food pantry.  However, by involving the entire high school and staff in competitions, working concessions at basketball games, and soliciting donations, they were able to raise $1415.81, collecting almost three times the amount of their goal.

            Student Council President Trae Otte and Vice-President Emily Gruenwald presented a check and food that had been collected to Laurel Lunde and Sharon Snow from The Gathering Source at an assembly on Friday afternoon.  The highlight of the assembly was watching Principal Jeff Sauer take two chocolate cream pies in the face from competition winners.  The students held a coin war throughout the week and the president of the winning class, Junior Niki Patel, tossed the first pie after she turned down a good-natured “bribe” from Principal Sauer. The staff met their challenge of raising $500 and secretary Barb Buss was elected to throw the second pie. The entire junior class will also receive a cookie reward this week for winning the coin war.

            “I’m very pleased with the students and the way they stepped up to this challenge. We did the math, and this donation will feed a family of four two meals a day for almost an entire year. The students and staff should be very proud of themselves. This is a great accomplishment,” said Student Council advisor Lori Horton.

THE GATHERING SOURCE FOOD PANTRY AND RESOURCE CENTER

Thanks to all for the donations and support during 2014.  We registered many new families and kicked off our Community Education Series and Services.  Energy Services was made available for energy assistance applications.  The Dodge County Aging and Disability Resource Center presented a class on Medicare Part D along with other options available for senior health care.  The Wisconsin Nutrition Education conducted cooking classes and Wisconsin Family Ties hosted clinics on some of the challenges of parenting.  We look to continue, improve and expand this in 2015.

We couldn’t do what we do without our community support and partnerships.  We collect Box Tops and Labels for education to support Dodgeland and they recently had a fundraiser for The Gathering Source.  This coming year, we look to expand this partnership to include student service projects for the Dodgeland Community.  We are also very blessed to have our churches and businesses support The Gathering Source through volunteers, food drives, and donations.   

Volunteers are still needed to shovel snow at The Gathering Source.  Please contact us at 920-927-1702.

Lunch and Learn - Wednesday, March 14th at 11 am.  Pattie Carroll, UW Extension Family Education Coordinator will kick off our Financial Education Series with Budgeting Basics.  Lunch will be served.  To register, contact The Gathering Source at 920-927-1702.  Space is limited, so don’t delay.

Mom and Me – Monday, February 2nd at 9 am.  Our Library Director, Kay Kromm is hosting a play group for preschoolers and will include parenting topics, crafting, and snacks.  Anyone interested can contact The Gathering Source at 920-927-1702 to register.

We no longer need plastic grocery bags.  We had an overwhelming response to our request for grocery bags and have enough of these to last for quite a while.

Used Ink Cartridges – Don’t throw out your used ink printer cartridges!  Please donate them to us to help offset our office supply costs.

Box Tops and Labels for Education - We continue to collect these for Dodgeland Schools.  You can drop them off at the library or during Open Door at The Gathering Source on Wednesdays from 9:30 to noon or Saturday 10-noon.

Million Pound Challenge – This is a program which provides food through Second Harvest to The Gathering Source.  For every hour of exercise you pledge, The Gathering Source receives 10 pounds of food from Second Harvest.  You can register at www.princetonclub.net/mpc  There is no obligation.  Feel free to stop in during Open Door or register at the Library.

Food Pantry continues on Tuesdays from 10-noon and Thursdays from 5-7. 

Healing Hearts resumes Wednesday, January 7th at 4:30 pm.  This is a biblically focused “Women for Women” group and covers a wide range of topics.

Weather Related Closings will be broadcast on WBEV.
