The Chamber of Commerce will no longer be sponsoring the Village Wide Rummage Sale due to the lack of people willing to take over the reins. If you wish to still have your Sales, feel free to do so.  Hopefully by next year we will have some people to step up.  It’s a great way to get involved with your community.  The Chamber will dissolve if no one shows an interest. Don’t let this happen!!


Your junk or good stuff may just be what someone else is looking for.

June 2018 Chief’s Corner

Well it has been quite the eventful year already considering everything Mother Nature has been throwing at us. I’ve always said in regards to the weather in Wisconsin if you don’t like it, just wait an hour it will change. That has been very true with the temperatures and the amounts precipitation we have been seeing. With that being said please still remember to be courteous and cautious of that big farm machinery out there trying to get their job done to help feed America. The rain is not helping them accomplish that so we will be seeing them later than normal this year.

Speaking of spring/summer traffic motorcycle season is in full swing already, and many can be seen on our roads already. Over half of all motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle, so please watch for them on the roads. In most, but not all of those cases the driver of the other vehicle was at fault. Because of the size, motorcycles can be hidden in blind spots very easily. Taking that second look at a stop sign or before changing lanes just might save someone’s life. Yes, it is that serious and yes, it is that simple to just take a second look and make sure the maneuver you are about to make is safe for you and that other motorist. The person on that motorcycle is someone’s son, mom, dad, daughter, grandpa, grandma, best friend, etc..... When you approach or see a motorcycle try to not just see them as a motorcyclist but as a family member or best friend. Give them a little extra following distance or take that second look because you would want to see them and, spend time with them one day again. So please be courteous and share the road.


Our next BINGO night is June, 10th. Doors will open at 4:00pm and BINGO starts at 5:30pm. As always food and refreshments will be available for purchase from our very own Reeseville Community Center. If you haven’t made it down I strongly recommend stopping down to at least try the deserts they are top notch. Be sure to pass along the word to your friends and family so they can come join the fun! 

Current progressive BINGO Jackpot is over $2,500.00 plus a portion of what we take in June 10th. We will call 57 balls. The fire department would like to thank everyone for attending BINGO and supporting the fire department. We would also like to thank the volunteers that help with food and beverages during BINGO. Without all of you we would not be able to make this fun community night happen once a month. 

For an application, any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday of the month around 6:30.

Any other questions or to inquire about becoming a member of our family here at the RFD

Firefighter Joke of the Month

One day a boy went swimming in a lake. He soon got into trouble though and was starting to drown.

Luckily there was a firefighter by the lake who swam out and pulled the boy up onto the beach and began CPR.

A crowd gathered around and watched as the firefighter frantically pumped on the boys’ chest.

Water kept pouring from the boy's mouth. Each time the firefighter pumped more water came out. A short time later seaweed started coming out, then minnows, then more water started coming out of the boy's mouth. The firefighter feared this would never stop.

Just then, a paramedic arrived, quickly ran over to the firefighter and said, "Hey Chief! You better get that kid's rear end out of the water before you pump that lake dry".

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

Hello everyone and may God bless you all and your families.

 I understand that Mother’s Day has come and gone, but I would like to take this opportunity to give honor to whom honor is due. Romans 13:7

That just means that I realize the holiday selected for Mother’s Day is once a year. But the importance and critical nature of the meaning and essence of such a day lives on. So strongly do I feel about this, I am willing to say and believe some things, that may be, most uncommon.

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


I would like to dedicate this letter to my mother, and especially to my wife, Cherie Behymer. It is because of her example of a mother that brings a humbleness to my heart. If the bible teaches men how to become real men, God fearing men, whose role is to honor the women in their lives, the bible also teaches women to become honorable, God fearing women. This doesn’t happen on accident you know. Honor and Righteousness are not accidents! But men and women have allowed God to have rule in their hearts, to make them into such. It’s called a “Relationship” with the Creator of the Universe.      

Mother’s Day is a day that should be celebrated and honored every day. Not the “day” is to be honored, but the mothers and ladies of that day and our lives are to be honored in such a way as to encourage and honor the tremendous sacrifice they take on. Every consider the job description of a mother? Housekeeper, Councilor, Chef, Event Planner, Dishwasher, Chauffeur, Teacher, Judge, Accountant. As a “Domestic Engineer,” Insure.com estimates that if moms were monetarily compensated they'd earn about $78,000 a year. 

 Thanks is to be given to the mothers, the ones whom the gifts of life, the children, God has brought into the world through. For He says, “Lo, children are a heritage, and reward, of the LORD.

Appreciation is to be given to the one whom God has gifted us with. for He says, “Who can find a virtuous woman?  For her price is far above rubies.”

Families today are being destroyed because of husbands and sons that don’t know how to, or don’t want to at all, honor their mothers and their wives. I know this is true because I used to be one of those husbands, I used to be one of those sons.

Throughout the ages, mothers and females in general have been given the less honorable position. Women couldn’t even vote in America until August 18, 1920, with the passing of the 19th Amendment. In Jesus day a woman’s voice was not even allowed to speak in a religious court. Women could not be addressed by a man in public. Women were not even allowed to read the Holy Scriptures. Then Jesus came along and not just taught the world, but showed the world how to honor women. No matter how great or small they were. Whether we think they deserved it or not.

And one of my personal favorites, is when Paul comes along and commands husbands across the ages to, “love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”

What that tells me is that I need to get my eyes off myself. That tells me, she is to be honored, my mother is to be respected, my daughter is to be highly esteemed! My neighbor deserves to be treated with respect.

And may that honorable character in us last the year through, not just on Mother’s Day.

You know, families are a whole lot more wonderful and peaceful when, instead of attacking each other, we are honoring one another. There sure is more love in the home when we are encouraging and lifting each other up, instead of cutting each other down because of our pride and selfishness.

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church.  And I invite you to come and see a Man, a Savior, a King that changed our lives forever.  Sunday Service @ 10:30am / Wednesday Service @ 6:30pm 214 South Main Street, Reeseville      www.facebook.com/TheReesevilleRefuge
