CHIEFS CORNER

Now that we have the wet month of April out of the way things are going to hopefully start to dry up around here and warm weather set in to stay. This means time for spring yard work and cleanup.  Just a reminder there is to be NO open fires within the village limits. This is for your safety and the safety of your community. All fires must be inside a fire pit made of steel, stone or masonry material, and completely covered with a metal screen spark guard with at least one foot of concrete or mason block around the outside and underneath the fire pit. We are only able to burn DRY NON TREATED FIREWOOD no garbage, cardboard, treated lumber, plastics, etc.  The fire MUST be attended to at all times by a responsible adult eighteen years of age or older, until the fire is completely extinguished. If the smoke begins to cause a problem for the neighborhood please be aware of this and extinguish it immediately. This is right out of our village ordinances so you can be fined if the ordinance is not followed.  Please remember wind can change at any time. We do live in Wisconsin after all. But in case it does happen and the fire gets too big or out of control please CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY. Do not try and extinguish that fire yourself. Don’t turn a fun backyard campfire into a structure fire or medical emergency, because you are afraid to ask for help. We will be there to help.  The quicker you ask for help the sooner everyone gets back home with no loss except some wet campfire wood.

Every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke. In a year’s time, more than 135,000 Americans die from a stroke. That means one person every 4 minutes making it the fourth leading cause of death in the US. The month of May is stroke awareness month.

Use FAST to remember and recognize the following signs and symptoms of stroke:

•F: Face drooping. Ask the person to smile, and see if one side is drooping. One side of the face may also be numb, and the smile may appear uneven.

•A: Arm weakness. Ask the person to raise both arms. Is there weakness or numbness on one side? One arm drifting downward is a sign of one-sided arm weakness.

•S: Speech difficulty. People having a stroke may slur their speech or have trouble speaking at all. Speech may be incomprehensible. Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence and look for any speech abnormality.

•T: Time to call 9-1-1! If a person shows any of the symptoms above, even if the symptoms went away, call 9-1-1 and get the person to a hospital immediately.

What kid would not love to have a fire truck at their birthday party! We are offering to bring a fire truck and some of our very own firefighters to your house for your kid’s party! All you have to do is contact Fire Chief Nic Gay at 920 210-2510.

 Our Fire Department has a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members but we could really use YOUR help. Maybe you don’t like car accidents or going into fire or you are afraid of heights. We have a job for you too. There are many things and numerous trainings that it takes to keep a small town fire department operational successful and we would love to have you.

For an application or even any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday around 6:30 and just watch or observe.

YOUTH & LEARN TO HUNT 2017 PROGRAM AT TOM’S GUNS IN MARSHALL

 

We had 72 hunters. 27 birds. Not too many hunters on Sunday due to Easter this year. 

We have been taking kids out for over 20 years, but the last years we have had the pleasure of adding learn to hunt hunters too from 10-100 years old.      
If they've never hunted a turkey we will take them for their FIRST TIME HUNT. We could not give this opportunity without the wonderful mentors, land owners and donors.

After the hunt on Saturday morning, the Marshall Lions Club put on lunch for the hunters and mentors. Time to show off your turkeys.
Now soon on to the youth waterfowl hunt in September.  If you would like to join us, contact Tom’s Guns in Marshall.

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

To Reeseville, to our friends and neighbors of Dodge County, to the hearts that may be in distress and discontented. I pray that you will be blessed by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray that you will receive Hope and inspiration from what you will read below

The following is what the Refuge believes and preaches and is paid for by the Refuge Church.

On April 23rd the Refuge of Reeseville Church had its' annual Easter Celebration Service at the Community Center in Reeseville. What a wonderful time that was had. The food was fantastic, the music was excellent, and most of all. the souls that came is what made the day extraordinary. I would like to thank everyone that came and allowed us to bless them. Special thanks to the Teens for Life group that came to help serve and clean up.

After Sunday, I am more encouraged than ever before. Truly God is at work in many hearts, lives, and families today. Perhaps more today than at any other time in history. Because in Jesus Christ there is hope, there is forgiveness, peace, love. All of the things a broken heart craves. All of the things a disappointed and discouraged person is in need of. How do I know this? I have lived it, I have witnessed it, and God has said it! How do we know that He can do these things? How can we believe it if we don't see those things happening in our lives? I had believed many times in the past that God had let me down, that He had forgotten about me. Being very discouraged, very disappointed, even very angry at God. Things didn't seem to be working out the way that I believed I had been promised by God. But over time I have learned to submit to "not my will, but Yours be done."

Luke 22:42 Only later in life to be seen, that I had been quite impatient with God many times, and sometimes still am. Even thinking that God must somehow answer His promises to me in a way that I think He should, in a way that I think is appropriate. I learned that all of existence is not about me, learning that I am not the center of the universe.

Who am I that I should demand anything from Jesus? I know that I am not even worthuy that He should enter into my house. Luke 7:6 Who am I that I should expect special treatment, that he would somehow give in to my selfish fits, me that drinks iniquity like water. Job 15:16 Who am I to get frustrated with the Creator of the Universe because He isn't paying more attention of me?

Yes I am a child of the King of Kings. Romans 8:16 Yes, He loves me so much that He would die for the likes of me so I could have an eternal relationship with Him. John 3:16 Yes, He made to me many, many incredible promises. 2 Peter 1:4

And He is not a man that He should lie. He is not of this world that He wouild play games with my life and manipulate and lie to me and make false commitments. He is not of this world that He is filled with empty promises and hypocrisy.

No. No. He is perfect. He is our perfect Father, perfect in Righteousness, perfect in patience, perfect in Faithfulness. He is so perfect that I cannot even come close to fully understanding all that He is. He is. He is so much greater amd so far above me that I must learn to trust and obey.

And I assure you that any kind of suffering in this life will be worth it when we see Him face to face.

And that's what it means to be a Christian.

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church. We invite you to come to the Refuge.
