VOLUNTEERS BUILDING DOG PARK IN CASSVILLE

Dog park
The Village Board recently approved the final Cassville Dog Park design, an effort that was started by a team of enthusiastic teens.  Envisioned as a place that will be accessible to all, this park will be a recreational space where our families, teens, older citizens, disabled residents and their four legged friends can walk and socialize.

The Friends of Cassville Dog Park are now working hard to raise funds for the park, seeking donations, writing grants and planning special fundraising events.  It will cost approximately $20,000 to build this quality park, funded entirely by volunteers.

To help raise money we are hosting a Fundraiser on Saturday, May 11th from 11am-3pm.  We will have excellent food, Potosi beer & root beer, Live Blue Grass music, low cost rabies shots, silent auction items and lots fun too numerous to list!  We hope you can join us to spend time with friends and raise some money for our pooches!

Sincerely,
Sue Krause, Jennifer Jackson, Moria Kasper-Theisen, Caden Hartman, Isaac Okey, Tammi Droessler, Kendra Rouse & Kyle Klein

SHULLSBURG CREAMERY CHEESEMAKER TAKES AWARDS
AT US CHAMPIONSHIP CHEESE CONTEST

 

Billl stocker april awards 2019
SHULLSBURG, WISCONSIN – The United States Championship Cheese Contest, hosted by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association, recently announced the winners of their 2019 Cheese Contest, awarding Shullsburg Creamery’s Cheesemaker Arthur “Bill” Stocker both a “Best of Class - Gold” and a “Third Place – Bronze” for his Marbled Curd Cheese.
Far from a novice in the industry, Bill Stocker began his cheese making career when he was nine years old, working alongside his father, Arthur Stocker Sr., in the original Shullsburg Creamery Cheese Factory, which was built in 1937.

Arthur Stocker, Sr. purchased Shullsburg Creamery in 1972 from the founder, Tony Peterson, a native of Denmark.  Shullsburg Creamery, under the direction of the Stocker family, grew the business 100-fold over the next 30 years and sold assets to Midwest Dairymen’s Cooperative in 2006.
Today, Shullsburg Creamery is proudly owned by 100 family dairy farms and continues to manufacture, market and distribute its fine cheese throughout the Midwest and beyond.
This year’s contest experienced a record-breaking 2,555 entries.  A team of 60 elite cheese judges evaluated entries from 35 states based on technical merits, including flavor, texture, appearance, and taste.  Awards were presented at the event’s annual convention on April 18 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, initiated in 1981, is the nation’s premier technical cheese, butter, and yogurt competition and this year marks the 20th biennial event.
