At this star-spangled Fourth of July celebration, there was plenty of red and white, and the sky provided all the blue.

The Bonduel Fourth of July celebration drew hundreds of cheering revelers Tuesday to downtown Bonduel for a parade and holiday event under picture-perfect weather conditions.

After weeks of rainy summer weather, spectators welcomed the chance to sit under sunny skies and bask in the festive occasion.

“It’s just beautiful,” said Gary Boerst, of Lessor, who grabbed a spot on some church steps with his wife, Susan, to watch the parade.

The parade through the center of town along Green Bay Street kicked off a daylong celebration that was scheduled to include live music, games and fireworks. It was the 106th presentation of a holiday celebration that has made Bonduel a crowd favorite on the Fourth of July.

FEMA awards $456,307 to Stockbridge-Munsee

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency has released $456,307 in Pre-Disaster Mitigation funds to the Stockbridge-Munsee Community in Wisconsin for the construction of a community safe room and the purchase of seven emergency generators.

“The Pre-Disaster Mitigation program enables communities to implement critical mitigation measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of loss of life and property,” said Janet M. Odeshoo, acting regional administrator of FEMA Region V. “The construction of this community safe room will protect the lives of vulnerable citizens by providing a secure location to seek shelter from tornadoes and other high-wind events. The seven generators will be permanently installed at critical facilities throughout the tribal reservation, ensuring that essential operations can continue during power outages.”

Bonduel names new high school principal

Bonduel School District officials have found a familiar face to take over as high school principal.

Mark Margelofsky, who had been the district’s middle school principal, has been named to move into the high school position this fall.

He will succeed Jane Wonderling, who resigned after three years at Bonduel High School to take a school district superintendent’s job elsewhere.

District officials have approved a restructuring under which the middle school principal’s job was being eliminated in the fall. As a streamlining measure, sixth-grade students are being consolidated within the elementary school, while seventh- and eighth-grade students are shifted into the high school.

The restructuring was decided in the aftermath of both Wonderling’s resignation and the retirement of Bonduel Elementary School Principal Peggy Jones.

Name released in fatal crash

Authorities Friday released the name of a 41-year-old Appleton woman killed in a crash in Shawano County on Thursday.

Naomi Gregurich died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash on state Highway 29 in the town of Herman just before 11 a.m. near the intersection of Rangeline Road, according to the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department.

An initial evaluation of the crash suggests that a 2013 Ford Focus operated by a 31-year-old Shawano man had been travelling east on Highway 29, crossed the median and struck a westbound 2008 Saturn being driven by Gregurich.

Two juveniles travelling with the woman were being treated at area hospitals, as was the driver of the other vehicle. Initial reports were that they did not have life-threatening injuries.

Aid was provided on-site by a passerby, Gresham Fire/EMS and Shawano Ambulance Service.

The crash is being investigated by the sheriff’s department and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

Bonduel parade marshal highly decorated veteran


Photo by Carol Wagner Bill Kuhnke will be the grand marshal for the 106th annual Bonduel Fourth of July parade. Kuhnke holds the medals he received during more than 14 years of service with the United States Army Airborne Corps. His uniform still fits.

William “Bill” Kuhnke served in the U.S. Army Airborne Corps for 14 years, 10 months and 18 days. He was planning to stay in the service, but had to leave and go on disability when he was wounded in Vietnam.

He is the grand marshal for the 106th annual Bonduel Fourth of July parade, which begins at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

“It’s an honor,” Kuhnke said.

He grew up in the town of Maine and enlisted in February 1952 at 17 years old. His brother was serving in Korea.

“I thought he might need some help,” Kuhnke said.

He reported to Fort Sheridan, Illinois, then to Schofield Barracks in Hawaii for 16 weeks of basic infantry training. That was followed by jump school for three weeks at Fort Benning, Georgia. Kuhnke was assigned to the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg in North Carolina in August 1954.
