One good deed leads to another as the Clintonville Rotary Club parleys a $75 donation they had received, into a $150 contribution to the Compassionate Connections Center here in Clintonville.
The club regularly participates in the Tadych's of Clintonville's Register Receipt Program. For every $7,500 in Tadych's receipts they collect, the store redeems for $75 that may be used to support local charitable organizations.
The Rotarians have been actively collecting receipts and turning around and giving the money back to local non-profit organizations. But, this time they we able to sweeten the pot by applying for matching funds through a Rotary District 6220 program, doubling the amount to $150.
Rotarian Connie Mitchell (left) presented the check to Executive Director Leah Wojnowiak (right) at the center, Tuesday.
Our program for this week's meeting was Dr. Jon Pahl who presented information about the Pigeon Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District. Pahl, a resident of Clintonville, recently joined the Committee and serves as its secretary. The presentation included background information on how the group was formed and some of their current initiatives. Pahl talked about the possible development of a swimming beach and of dredging to remove accumulated sediment.
Barista Takeover!
Hey guys! I’m Emily and I recently started to work at the living room just this summer. I typically work weekends and am currently a junior.
I’m very glad to have applied here along with having an amazing opportunity to work with the most sweetest coworkers. I love getting to know our regular customers, meeting new faces, and making new drinks. Coming into work here is a blast and I’m always learning something new everyday. The environment here is absolutely amazing, it’s the most “home” feeling a place could get. Whether it’s jazz or country music playing, I’ll have random bursts of singing quite often (usually out of tune though). I can’t wait for the holidays and to see what’s in store for the winter
My name is Brad Krueger. I've been with the Pigeon River Artists for several years now. 
My main interest is working with wood. There are several techniques that I enjoy working with, as well as many I'm interested in trying. I can say my interests come to me naturally since my great-grandfather was a blacksmith in Caroline, my grandfather was a talented cabinet maker/woodworker, and my dad did woodworking as a hobby.
My first passion is to build furniture of all types, like the photo of the table here. I have built dining tables, small tables, shelves, cabinets, and other types of home furnishings. For each project, I use a new technique such as dovetail or mortise and tenon joinery. I also like to use different finishing types besides usual staining like dyes or oils.
I also do artistic pieces using laser etching, and wood burning,. A small laser allows me to etch pictures and patterns into wood, leather, slate and other materials. I can also use it to cut some materials with a higher accuracy than conventional methods.
The Lichtenberg Pricess is also known a fractal burning. This process uses electricity to burn pattern into wood. The pattern usually resembles tree branches, lightning, or the roots of a plant. It is always interesting to burn a piece and then finish the end product. 
I also have interests in restoring or preserving antiques in wood, metal and other materials. I find antiques to be fascinating, not only for the history behind the piece, but also because of the workmanship that went into it without the modern tools and equipment we use today.
No Boundaries Nutrition loves giving back to the community!  

This past March, No Boundaries Nutrition owner, Tracey Mengert, celebrated with a special Dr. Suess Birthday Party at the nutrition club and the funds raised went towards reading programs at our local elementary schools. 
Tracey met Associate Principal, Peg Mischler, from Rexford-Longfellow Elementary School to make their first donation. 
It’s a great feeling to be able to bless others with the gift of reading. 
“Oh, the places you will go.” ~Dr. Suess
