Department Of Good Works

Maybe it should be called the North Fond du Lac Department of Good Works. Two members of the Village’s Department of Public Works were recognized during the Village Board meeting this week for stopping to help the mother of a child that was going through a medical crisis. Village Administrator Chuck Hornung says Brian Rebedew and Kevin Gruber were working in the northwestern corner of the village when they saw the woman pull over on Prospect Avenue. They could tell something was wrong and they quickly went over to help the woman whose baby was suffering through a medical emergency. Rebedew even lent his jacket to the woman so the child didn’t have to lie on the ground. They provided the woman with what help they could until an ambulance arrived. Hornung says things turned out fine for the baby. He feels recognizing Rebedew and Gruber was the right thing to do because they went over and above their normal duties.
