Thanks to the Library for hosting “Pockets Full of Fun” last month. About fifty people attended and it was fun for adults as well as children. Watch for events like this.
Sorry-water bills were late getting out. Weather was a big factor. The due date is correct on the stub (3-23-18). Please ignore the date in the lower left hand corner of the bill.
Some did not see the letter sent out last fall explaining why you saw an increase in your bill. The large increase is actually the sewer portion of the bill. Because of the one and a half million dollar lagoon project required by the DNR it was necessary to increase the sewer rates.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

“SAD EASTER BUNNY”
Last year there was no Easter Egg Hunt, mostly due to lack of funds.This year we can get the funding, we have ladies willing to stuff the Easter eggs. BUT we need your help. Mary, who has done such a great job organizing the event, has another commitment that weekend. We need YOU to step up and help with the event. We also need YOU to don the bunny costume. If you can help, please call 938-2514 as soon as possible so we can get the word out that the Easter Bunny will arrive.
