Shout out to John Meyer, Brian Stanelle, Leigh and Mike Duescher, Cathy Hinkle, my kids and I, Al Klingeisen, Jim Hill, and of course the awesome girl scout troop and moms that accompanied us to allow for splitting up the bridge crossing clean-up work! All in, it took about 2 hours, and we cleaned up 330# of trash!! That included 5 tires, a SnapOn toolbox with drawers, and miscellaneous other garbage. Afterwards, there was a nice big treat of Cravings cookies for everyone! I’ll be sending a thank you note to the troop mom that reached out to me.

Other things to mention….please pay dues if you haven’t yet. Everyone who ordered trees should have them now, thank you Al for going to Sheboygan to pick up the order!

Our next event will be our brat fry at Robs Market in Manitowoc. Al wants people to do the money handling, customer service side of it if anyone can do so. Thanks to everyone who wants to help fry! Or come and support our efforts! Date=April 30…9-2:30+/-.

Checks were written out to Bob Schuh and Woodland Dunes. I took our check to Woodland Dunes this afternoon and presented it to Jim Knickelbine, Director. He was thrilled by our donation and wanted to thank FOBR for it and the hard work we also put in.

Thanks everyone!


A check was presented to Bob Schuh by Al Klingeisen for $250 from the Friends of the Branch River Watershed in order to allow Bob to build more bird houses. If you are a family looking for something for the children to do outdoors, this is the group for you. Children as young as just walking can have fun in this group. Check them out on Facebook for more information.
