NEXT BINGO GAME IS AUGUST 12TH

 

 


 


           

AUGUST Chief’s Corner 2018

 

Wow July sure flew by quickly. Just like that it's that time of the year again to celebrate the annual corn roast, August 11th at Reeseville Fireman's Park. Rock the Foundation DJ, refreshment, food stands, and kid’s games start at 2:00pm. Followed by the famous chicken dinners, and free sweet corn at 4:00pm. The Playlist live band will be starting at 7:00pm, and fireworks provided by Spectrum Pyrotechnics at 10:00pm. Raffle tickets are available at the event, and now by contacting any fire department member. Please come out and enjoy yourself, spend time meeting the firefighters, other members of our community, and eat some free sweet corn. Please remember this is a fundraiser for our fire department to help us purchase the safety gear, and equipment required to help you so NO CARRY INS WILL BE ALLOWED.

 

Congratulations to Tatum Beyer for winning the Reeseville fire queen competition, and Jami Zechzer for becoming the new Reeseville fire princess for 2018.

 

Bingo report from 7-8-18 The progressive pot was not won so is back on the rise again. It currently is at $226.00. We will call 49 balls and half of the progressive card sales will go into the progressive pot.

Bingo 8-12-2018 will be our next bingo night. Yes, this is the day after the corn roast so please come, and help keep the firefighters awake, and running for those winners as it will be a very long weekend for all of us. Doors will open at 4:00pm and Bingo starts at 5:30pm. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase from the Reeseville Community Center.

 

August 15-19, 2018 will be the Dodge County Fair at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, WI.

A few safety tips to help ensure you have a safe fun filled day at the fair:

-Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, it is usually hot during the fair -Wear closed toed shoes, you will be walking among many people, animals, and kids getting on and off rides. Sandals and flip flops often get caught or cause you to trip.

-Wash your hands frequently especially after petting animals. Refrain from eating or drinking while around the animals. Hold hands with small children when near the animals. Startling animals by touching or screaming children can result in serious injury for everyone involved including the animal. They are not used to having this many people around them either.
-Be mindful of how much deep-fried food you and your children eat. It typically doesn't mix well with rides.
-Keep a very close eye on your children. It is very easy for them to become distracted with everything going on between the animals, bright lights, games and rides, which may put them in harm’s way.
-Have a separation plan. Talk to your children about staying put if they get lost, and to look for a police officer, firefighter, or a fair official. Or if they are old enough set a safe meeting place. Always as a precaution have your child carry their parent's name, and cell phone number in their pocket.
-Report anything that doesn’t look right to the proper authorities. Know where the fair office is and where the Sheriff's department is staged under the grandstand. Chances are if something doesn't look right or safe to you, it isn’t, report it.
-Help everyone stay safe, and most importantly enjoy the 2018 Dodge County Fair.

Firefighter Joke of the Month

A Preschool teacher was teaching her class about firefighters one day. She asked the children what the purpose of the Dalmatian dog was.

"They use them to keep the crowds back" one youngster said "No" said another, "he's just for good luck"

A third child brought the argument to a close when she said very firmly "They use the dogs to find the fire hydrants!!"

We had fun at the library in July making wind socks, bird feeders and slime.  We raced boats, potted plants and soaked the lawn with water fights. We had fantastic fun and are grateful to our sponsors for making this possible.  All the kids that reach their reading goals will be receiving a new book of choice to keep.  And we were able to add over 150 new children’s books thanks to a grant from the Watertown Community Health Foundation. 

 

 TalkReadPlayTime

Coming in September, the Reeseville Library will be piloting the early literacy program, TalkReadPlayTime.  This will be a playgroup for children birth to five and their caregivers that will meet once a week for six weeks.  We’ll be using the PIWI (parents interacting with infants) curriculum.  Watch for more details as we gear up for this exciting new program sponsored by Every Child Thrives and The Watertown Community Health Foundation.
