Resolution in Appreciation of Community Volunteers

On November 3, 2015 the Village Board adopted the following resolution in appreciation of all the Community Volunteers:




THE VILLAGE BOARD of the VILLAGE OF NEW GLARUS, GREEN COUNTY, WISCONSIN does hereby extend its sincere gratitude to the many community volunteers that work tirelessly and devote their time and talents to not only help with the various festivals, recreation programs, and tourist attractions, but also keep the community looking beautiful.  There are so many individuals that go above and beyond to make sure the flowers are planted and water, the weeds are pulled, the festival grounds are set up and manned during the festivals and cleaned up afterwards, in addition to a variety of “unseen” tasks that get taken care of each and every day.

Every volunteer works very hard for the community and their commitment is truly appreciated by both Village staff and board alike.  The Board wishes to express its appreciation for the commitment of time and talent provided by all the many volunteers who help to make the Village of New Glarus a better community.  Thank you!!                                                                                       
Roger Truttmann, President
