Edgerton’s Village Council met Oct. 17 to honor two longtime employees.
Donna Siebenaler and Laurie Fritch retired Oct. 26.
Village Administrator Dawn Fitzcharles released a note she sent to the women from herself and the mayor.
“Your leaving marks the end of an era here at the Village of Edgerton. I know we will all come to appreciate you even more when we try to fill the void that you will leave.
“Even more important though are the friendships you have developed over that time. On behalf of the Mayor and Village Council, I want to thank you for your superior performance during these past years to the Village of Edgerton, as we congratulate you on your retirement. You have been an inspiration to us all. We will all miss you very much.”

The Edgerton Chamber of Commerce and the Edgerton Elementary PTO are teaming up for Trunk or Treat.
This event will be from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 29 in the Edgerton Elementary School parking lot. Anyone and everyone is invited to decorate a trunk and pass out candy.
Organizers ask that a vehicle’s trunk be decorated no later than 3:30 p.m. so it’s ready when children arrive.
Light refreshments will be provided in the TOMS gym. Parking for those not decorating trunks will be available in the side yard of the old middle school (think parking for football games).
The event will lead right into the regular town-wide trick or treat from 6-7p.m., and there will also be a parade from the Village Hall (old high school) to the Fire Hall for costume judging starting at 7 p.m. Contact Shelly Rowlison at the PTO (567-239-6675) with any questions.
