October Chief’s Corner

Well the weather seems to finally have changed and we seem to have our typical fall weather finally here. With that comes the colors changing and leaves falling. Just a reminder to village residents you cannot burn leaves within the village. For all of the township residents please be very careful if you are trying to burn they leaves blow around very easily, and in the fall wind can gust, speed up, or change directions very rapidly Remember to get your burning permits if you plan to dispose of your leaves in this manner and also call it in to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department dispatch center at 920-386-3726.

 

The Reeseville Fire Department would like to thank everyone for their donations to the RFD Pancake Breakfast and for attending. Special thanks to the Quad County Runners ATV Club for making the pancake breakfast a stop on the George Miescher Memorial poker run also held that day.

 

Help us spread the word!!! Sunday November 12th RFD will be having BINGO at the Reeseville Community Center again. We thank everyone that attended the first one. Things went very well and we received a lot of positive comments how much fun attendees had. Prices for BINGO will by listed at the door. Doors will open at 4:00pm to allow more time for everyone to get a snack and get situated before the fun begins. BINGO will start at 5:30pm. Come on down and try your luck at some BINGO, or even just try it out for the first time. There will be food and refreshments served by the Reeseville Community Center, prices will be posted at the Community Center. Bring your wife down, let her play some BINGO while you, relax, watch some Sunday night football, and enjoy some social time and drinks at the bar with friends and neighbors of the community. We have put a lot of time, and efforts into making this community event happen; we hope to see you there. We will be hosting BINGO once a month, the dates are set as; Sunday, December 10th2017, January 14th, February 11th, March 11th, and April 8th, 2018 same time same place.

 

November is very important month deer hunting!! No we will get to that later. November 5th daylight savings time ends and we get to set our clocks back one hour to get that extra hour of sleep but more importantly it’s time to change those smoke detector and carbon dioxide (CO2) alarm batteries. Please don’t put this off or use the common excuses I’ll do it later tomorrow or next year I don’t have batteries, it’s too cold or too much work to get the ladder out. Just help us help you by being safe and be alerted before it’s too late.

 

November is also the big month for deer hunting. When it comes to firearms the Wisconsin DNR has put together four basic rules of firearm safety. 1 is treating every firearm as if it is loaded, 2 is always point the muzzle/barrel in a safe direction, 3 is always be certain of your target and what is beyond it, and  4 is keep your finger outside of the trigger guard until you’re ready to shoot. Tree or ladder stands also have a great deal of dangers surrounding them. Surveys tell us that one-quarter of our bow/gun hunters have experienced a fall or near fall from an elevated stand in the past. Less than half of Wisconsin deer hunters use a safety harness every time they climb. Published research indicates that risky climbing behavior can catch up with you the longer you hunt. Wood can rot, tree steps snap, railings fail, and climbers slip. None of hunters that wound up in trauma center in our study considered these possibilities when they began their climbs. The DNR also has a list of safety rules that should be followed to ensure a safe and successful hunt.

 •Always wear a full-body harness also known as a fall-arrest system. Connect to your tether line and keep your tether line short. The tether is designed to keep you in the seat, not to catch you after you fall.

•Always have three points of contact while climbing into and out of the tree stand: This means two hands and one foot or two feet and one hand at all times.

•Always use a haul line to raise and lower your unloaded firearm or bow into and out of the stand. You can also use the haul for other things like a heavy backpack.

•Use a lifeline when climbing up and down, this keeps you connected from the time you leave the ground to the time you get back down.

 •Be aware of suspension trauma: Suspension trauma can happen in less than 20 minutes and can be fatal. Attaching an additional foot strap to the body harness will take pressure off your upper legs should you fall.

•Select a tree that is substantial enough to support your weight.

•Read, understand and follow all of the manufacturer's recommended procedures.

•Do not alter your equipment.

•Use a short tether between you and the tree when seated in the tree stand.

•Let people know where you'll be hunting, where you'll be parking your vehicle and when you intend to return.

•Carry a cell phone with you so you can call for help if you are injured after a fall.

 

November 23, 2017 Happy Thanksgiving from the Reeseville Fire Department

 

Remember when we were younger? Everyone played the role as a child or wanted to grow up to be a superhero, a police officer, a doctor, a nurse, or a FIREFIGHTER!! Now is your chance to be that real-life superhero to the children in our community. Maybe you think you don't have time? Maybe you have some fears that you are fighting? Maybe you think it’s not your job? Maybe you think you can't do it?  These are excuses, and nothing more than that. Volunteer departments like ours, and throughout the state of Wisconsin are in need of people. We will give you the training you need to overcome these obstacles. We are being faced with less and less people willing to volunteer, and with no volunteers what happens the day no one answers the call? I never want to see that happen. We here at the RFD have very busy schedules with work and family just like every one of the citizens we serve. We do the best job we are capable of to try and keep this community safe, and have adequate fire/rescue coverage, we need your help. If you are, or have considered serving your community what better way.  If you are a motivated, dedicated, always willing to learn, not afraid of hard work, we have a job for you! If you have any of these qualities we are pleased to announce we are accepting applications at this time. Our Fire Department is our family, and we have a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members, we could really use YOUR help. Even if you don’t like car accidents or going into fire or you are afraid of heights, we have a job for you also. There are many tasks that it takes to keep a volunteer fire department successful and we would love to have you.

 

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

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

 

Upcoming Events

Thanksgiving 2017

Sunday, November 19th at the Reeseville Community Center, the Refuge of Reeseville Church will be hosting its’ Annual Thanksgiving Celebration and Dinner. The Refuge has some of the best cooks in Dodge County, so come and enjoy great food, fun, friendship and hopefully a short message.

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

 

Psalm 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Here we go again, Thanksgiving is upon us. Here is another one of those holidays that we may celebrate once a year. But being thankful is a full time, everyday effort. Which really isn’t too hard. There sure is a lot of little everyday things I have found to be thankful for. I am thankful for the Panic Button on the key fob. I still might be searching for my car at Walmart. I am thankful for the warning bell that tells me the key is still in the ignition. And of course, how about Freedom and Family. Yes, we all know that.

So I have a question…what happens to a people and a nation when they cease to be thankful?

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.

It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

John Adams. Assistant Author and Signer or the Declaration of Independence and Second President of the United States.

Either the founding fathers were idiots or they were very wise and perhaps, even, divinely inspired.

Have we lost something as a society or are we truly “civilized” and more “enlightened” today?

 

There once was a Nation, that called Freedom its’ home. Pillars of Justice. Foundations of Religion and Self Governance. When the Christian made the finest of Statesmen and the Bible was revered.

And the people knew Whom to give thanks to, because they have read and believed that every good and perfect gift comes from above. James 1:17

Humph!! What foolish nonsense that is!  We are so much more civilized today! This is 2017!

Something happened. The people began to forget from where they came. The Bible is now sits on the shelf instead of being taught and learned.

The ones who actually believe the bible have become as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. They have all become fools.

And the One that Blesses loses the desire to bless.

The people stopped being thankful. They stopped being thankful and ceased to look outside themselves. They have become self-centered and greedy. A society that has lost  its’ appreciation for their fellow man, and will eventually for every human life except their own.

 

I hope we have not come to that. But I admit, sometimes I need to remind myself to be thankful and I pray that we can all be thankful for what we have and who we have.

Psalm 107:1  O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

How beautiful is that? How beautiful the family that God has placed before us! How beautiful the children! And may we never forget Who it all comes from.

Truly this is the LORDs’ doing, and it is beautiful in our eyes. Psalm 118:23
