A Visit from St. John's Lutheran

I enjoyed a visit on Wednesday from Joshua Mose (former student of mine), Principal Peter Lemke (former college classmate), and their students from St. John's Lutheran-Jefferson. The kids said they were in favor of the cursive bill. Glad they are on board!

Need to Recycle Your Lamps or Fixtures?

When replacing expired light bulbs, it is best to not throw them into the garbage. Many light bulbs and related lighting products contain harmful substances that should not be simply placed in the trash. Due to space restrictions at the Municipal Service Center, the City of Fond du Lac no accepts these for proper disposal. Some types of these items can be brought to Riley Electric in Fond du Lac. They are the only known provider of this service in the area, and for a small fee, will properly dispose/recycle them. We thank Riley Electric for providing this service. You may learn more information on their website.

Smart911

Smart911.pngBack in April, a fantastic, innovative technology came to Wisconsin and Fond du Lac County that can help dispatchers and first responders reach those in need much more quickly and efficiently. With Smart911, you can provide these people critical information you want them to know in any kind of emergency. When you call 9-1-1, your Smart911 Profile displays on the screen and the responders can view your addresses, medical information, home information, description of pets and vehicles, and emergency contacts. You can provide as much or as little information as you would like. Smart911 is a national service, meaning your Smart911 Profile is visible to any participating 9-1-1 center nationwide at places you travel to. Smart911 has already assisted many first responders and residents in the Fond du Lac area. The product makes a positive difference in potentially saving a life.
