Red Cross blood drive

The Red Cross Blood drive on Wednesday, June 5 at Deerfield High School collected 36 units of blood, saving 108 lives. The Student Council would like to thank all the new high school donors and community members who turned out. Due to your donations this year, the Red Cross offered $700 in scholarship money. Please mark your calendars for the next drive on August 8 in the commons at Deerfield High School.

Cemetery Walk

The Cemetery Board of East Koshkonong Lutheran Church would like to thank everyone who helped with the Cemetery Walk – Stories from the Stones on Saturday, May 25. It was a great success. We had visitors from local neighbors in Cambridge, Deerfield, Edgerton, Fort Atkinson, Janesville, Rockdale, Stoughton, to Brooklyn, Hartford, Madison, (WI) and even North Dakota. Our greeters welcomed our guests, gave out list of East Koshkonong Veterans, and a cemetery map; storytellers shared stories, charts and pictures of their ancestors; our bakers far exceeded our expectations with a generous supply of cookies; Steve Gill recorded the events of the day; many hands and strong backs set up tables, water coolers, bulletin boards, and manned golf carts. Koshkonong Prairie Historical Society showed the film “Kaskeland: Queen of the Norwegian-American Settlements– Koshkonong Prairie, WI”.

West Koshkonong also had storytellers at their cemetery and St. Paul’s Liberty provided a handout of their Cemetery pioneers. Ron Anderson was at the Anderson farm to share stories of church pioneers.

Our church family is truly a family in action. God’s work is through our hands. THANK YOU to all for sharing God given talents and skills.
