Village Board Moves Forward On Administrator Position
By Andrea Hansen Abler
The Campbellsport Village Board talked at the end of its Monday, Nov. 14 meeting about a village administrator position. Voters voted in favor of creating an ordinance to come up with the position in the village.
It was not listed on the agenda, but Brandon Serwe brought up the issue.
"I guess I assumed it was going to be on the agenda after the election," Serwe said.
Village President David Krebs stated that the agenda was created before the election, so he thought they would talk about it during the an-nouncements portion of the meeting.
The first thing the board has to do is come up with an ordinance creating the position and then approve it. Then, they will need to figure out how to fund the position.
A personnel committee meeting was scheduled for Monday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. to begin working on the ordinance. Once that is approved, the finance committee will move forward on the feasibility of funding the position.
Campbellsport VFW Post Disbanding
By Buddy Brown
VFW Post 8339
It is that time for our Campbellsport VFW Post 8339 to disband. Over the past few years, our membership has diminished to only two or three members who attend our monthly meetings. With no new members, we cannot even have a legal meeting.
We have decided to donate our treasury to the Fisher House at the Zablocki Center in Milwaukee. This will help other veterans and their families who use the hospital.
We would like to thank all of our past members for your support. If you would like to join some of the other VFW's in the area, we are sure they would welcome you with open arms.

Children's Activities Thanksgiving Week At The Campbellsport Library
By Andrea Hansen Abler
The Campbellsport Public Library is offering a variety of free activities during the week of Thanksgiving for kids of all ages.
New readers are encouraged to register to practice their reading skills to either Taz or Aspen, trained therapy dogs, on Monday, Nov. 21, in the evening. Adults should call the library to sign up readers of any age for a free 15-minute reading session with one of two therapy dogs sometime between 5 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Children can bring their own book from home in to read or they can choose a book from the library shelves.
On Tuesday, Nov. 22, schoolage children are invited to the library after school at 3:45 p.m. to make farout galaxy jars. An after-school snack will be provided.
The Wednesday morning story time program on November 23rd will feature stories and games about turkeys. Preschoolers are invited to join us at 10:30 that morning.
Everyone is invited back to the library that Wednesday at 1 p.m. to watch Kubo and the Two Stings. This animated film tells the story of a young boy named Kubo who must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past. Free popcorn will be handed out.
