Guests speakers at our Earlybird Rotary club meeting this morning, Thursday October 6th, were the owners of the Velvet Sheep Farm based right here in Sheboygan; Joshua and Kelli Dolan.  A quaint Bed and Breakfast sheep and goat farm owned by two self proclaimed city slickers who always knew they wanted the agrarian lifestyle.
Thanks to a generous $1,000 sponsorship from Advanced Comfort Systems, Inc. and Carrier, Early Bird Rotary was able to donate $1,500 to the 31st Annual Coats for Kids community service campaign, for the purchase of new winter coats.
This sponsorship, combined with individual donations from Early Bird Club members and the Tom Bartz family, will be used to purchase new coats for Sheboygan County residents who would otherwise go without.
Thank you also to club member Mike Reinbold and Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home for many years of service to our community through their sponsorship of this program.
If you would like to donate a new coat to the campaign, or know someone who is in need of one, go to
