Small groups of volunteers have been meeting often these last couple of months to prepare for the Bellringer. So much time and effort goes into this event to pull it all together by a great core of volunteers, who in turn recruit more volunteers for race day. There is no way this event would take place without them. “Thank you!” for the time you have already donated in putting this event together. And “Thank you, ALL!” for sharing your 4th of July with the Friends of the Mellen Library and helping to make their FUNdraiser a successful event.

“Thank you!” to Kendra Thewis for your annual Dairy Day Fun at the Library visit. This year the kids milked water filled gloves and saw how whipped cream is made. She shared dairy fun facts and an ice cream treat. The treat was compliments of the Chequamegon Dairy Association.
