Library board member sought

Applicants from Sheboygan County are being sought to fill a member at-large vacancy on the Eastern Shores Library Board.

The county administrator’s appointment to the Eastern Shores Library System Board is subject to the approval of the full County Board. Applicants should send a letter of interest and brief resume to the attention of County Administrator Adam Payne at the Sheboygan County Administration Building, 508 New York Ave., Sheboygan 53081. Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6. The appointment will be confirmed by the County Board at their Aug. 19 meeting.

The new board member will serve the remainder of a three-year term that expires December, 2015. The board meets the last Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. at the ESLS offices at 4632 S. Taylor Dr., Sheboygan and at other member libraries at least six times per year.

The Library System provides travel expense reimbursement for attendance at Library System Board meetings. Interested persons must be willing to commit two hours a month for board meetings and another two hours a month for committee meetings.

The Eastern Shores Library System is a joint agency of Ozaukee and Sheboygan Counties which receives funds from the Wisconsin State Legislature to provide services to member libraries. It also receives funds from the two member counties to compensate libraries for service to residents of the two counties who have no local library service and to operate a bookmobile service.

The purpose of the Library System is to improve and extend public library service to all residents of the library system. It contracts with the 13 public libraries in the two counties and helps these libraries provide better library service. The Library System provides centralized services which make a member library’s operations more economical, more efficient, or more effective.

PFD raises money for MDA

Members of the Plymouth Fire Department raised $3,490.67 during the annual Fill the Boot drive on July 10 and 17 to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Sheboygan County area.

“For six decades, fire fighters have fueled MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases, and this year’s Plymouth Fill the Boot results are a perfect example of the true dedication the Plymouth Fire Department has toward supporting the families we serve,” said Fundraising Coordinator Bri Lodel. “We’re grateful for the support of these inspiring, selfless individuals who provide life-saving help that will fund research, advocate for children and adults affected by muscle disease, and rally our community to fight back.”

Funds raised through 2014 Plymouth Fill the Boot events will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Pilgrim Center in Green Lake. As the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s largest national sponsor, fire fighters fuel MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases.
