Hello, my name is Reid Schoonover,
I'm a resident of Clintonville and an artist, and this month it's my turn to be the Pigeon River Artist's - Members "Artist of the Month".   
I'd like to tell you a bit about myself, what I do and how I got here as an artist. Teaching Art was, and always has been important to me, I've taught art on all levels, from Kindergarten through College, (BA, in Art Ed. and MFA, a Terminal Professional Degree, in Fine Art). I have always made art in several mediums, though particularly in clay and wood, and yes, I do "throw" pots on a potter's wheel, a skill I learned long ago, and one I've been "practicing" for years'. Though working with wood has always come more easily for me. Perhaps because wood, unlike clay, doesn't have a "mind of its own" and must stay the shape I make it. Clay though always seems to want to return to its original state, just one big "lump", until I've "tamed" it (frown/smile here). As an artist with gallery representation (couple of links below) I work several hours a day in my studio to ensure that I have a fresh supply of work to send out. I've always considered myself fortunate to be able to work at, and at the same time enjoy, the teaching and making of art. And fortunate to have the luxury of deciding what to make as my art. It's made for a life rich with exploration, adventure and reward for me as an artist, and as a person. And while working as an artist is great, my wife Pat, who is also an artist, and I, wanted to reach out to other artists in our community, to anyone who might share an interest in art, so we started our local Pigeon River Artists - Members group as a way to bring local artists together, to provide support, resources, and an opportunity to come together as a more formal organization. And though our group is small in numbers, it's great to know and share with others here in Clintonville, the joy of creating in our own individual artistic mediums and styles. For me, art is and always has been, a way of life. So as I look back on past artistic work and accomplishments, I also look forward to more time in my studio, and to creating the art I feel compelled to make.                 
This is my "Artist Statement: " The work I produce is a conscious amalgam of a number of interests I have, and an attempt to reconcile these collective interests in a contemporary way. It is also an attempt, on my part, to produce work that is easy to use and live with, and yet provide visual stimulation, aesthetic pleasure, and encourage a conceptual linking to life and times long past."

Clintonville/Marion Rotary Club's Scholarship Fund
Thanks to the generosity of the owners and managers at Clintonville Culver's Restaurant, we added $792 to our scholarship fund. Culver's held a share day event where they donate 10% of the day's proceeds to a local non-profit club or organization. Thursday, June 10 was Rotary's day, and it was a busy one, resulting in $750 in shared funds and another $42 in tips. Here Rotarian Connie Mitchell, with a grandchild in her arms, Rotarian Ann Fuge, Rotarian Sue Aschliman, Culver's Manager Joe Williams, and Culver's Team Member Ava Mais celebrate the presentation of the funds to the club. Thank you Culver's and the community for your support!

The COVID-19 pandemic was the latest one that Seagrave has overcome with the support of the employees, the community, and the continued confidence of trusted customers.
 
“Seagrave owes its lengthy business life and success to an unbendable adherence to our core values of Safety, Longevity and Reliability in our products and in our business dealings.

Seagrave is working on ways to recognize its 140th year in business, celebrating its history, its workforce, customers, and partners in a long and successful journey.
 
“Seagrave will bring this special milestone to the forefront of our activities in many ways,” continued Parmeziani, “As we celebrate our past, rooted in the innovation driven by our founders, we keep an eye on the future as we return to bring innovation to firefighting by achieving a new patent award on our newest product - the HydroForce®,” concluded Parmeziani.
 
Seagrave designs, engineers, and builds its own aerial apparatus and custom chassis in a variety of models to meet the demands of diverse firefighting needs. Products include Custom Pumpers, Tankers, Rescues, Hazmat, Rear-Mount Aerials, Tractor-Drawn Aerials, Rear- and Mid-Mount Platforms, Articulating Water Towers, as well as Commercial Wildland and Brush Trucks.

Households Impacted by COVID-19 Can Apply for Housing, Utility, and Other Assistance through CAP Services

CAP Services, Inc. is administering grant programs for individuals whose income or resources were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Households in need of rental, mortgage, utility, or other emergency assistance should fill out a pre-application at www.capservices.org/covid or call 844-314-8004 for assistance in English, Spanish, or Hmong.
 
“Many households are still struggling due to a loss of income or resources during the pandemic,” said Nicole Harrison, President & CEO of CAP Services. “We want community members to contact us if they need assistance. Community members are working hard to recover, and we’re here to help.”
 
CAP has been working with the State of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Community Action Program Association (WISCAP), and Energy Services Inc. for the past four months to administer the Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance (WERA) program. CAP administers the program for Portage, Waupaca, Waushara, Marquette, and Outagamie counties. Households must be at or below 80% of the county median income, which is $4,954 a month for a family of four in Waupaca County. CAP has been able to administer $1,583,782.60 to 433 households. As the CDC’s eviction moratorium expires on June 30, 2021, this assistance will be more important than ever for housing stability in the region.
 
In addition to rental and utility assistance, CAP recognized that homeowners whose mortgages had become delinquent due to loss of income or resources during COVID were struggling. CAP partnered with the City of Waupaca to administer CDBG-CV funding for mortgage assistance and foreclosure prevention for households in Marquette, Portage, Waupaca, or Waushara counties. To apply for this assistance, applicants must have household income at or below 80% of the county median income. They can receive up to $5,000 in assistance covering mortgage arrearages and payments and utility expenses over a period of 6 months. Residents of Outagamie County who need mortgage assistance can contact LEAVEN, who is administering the program in that county, at 920-738-9635
 
CAP is also administering small grants up to $500 for households with income at or below 125% of the federal poverty level in CAP’s five-county service area Grants are available for housing and utility expenses that are not covered by WERA or CDBG-CV assistance programs, and for other household expenses such as child care, food, transportation, technology, or medical/health care costs. CAP’s emergency grants are open to all residents of CAP’s service area regardless of citizenship or immigration status.
 
Residents of Marquette, Outagamie, Portage, Waupaca, and Waushara counties are welcome to apply and can call 844-314-8004 for information in English, Spanish or Hmong, or visit capservices.org/covid to complete a pre-screening application.
 
CAP Services, Inc. is a private, nonprofit community action agency that has been advancing social and economic justice for people and communities in Marquette, Outagamie, Portage, Waupaca and Waushara counties since 1966.
