“Spotlight on Family is a feature in the Mouse River Journal that focuses on one family. This week Dennis (Pinky) & Phyllis Zimmerman were in the spotlight. They were born & raised in the Anamoose area. Phyllis attended school at Roosevelt #1 & Dennis attended Rossevelt #2. They left Anamoose & moved on in their careers. But after Phyllis retired from full time nursing & Dennis retired from his job as a cement salesman, they returned to Anamoose & were married in 1998.
They are on many committees in the community. Phyllis is President of the Anamoose Senior Citizens; Secretary/Treasurer of Market in the Park; a member of Relay for Life “The Happy Feet for Life” team & the Anamoose Civic Club; & Vice-President of the Ideal Homemakers Club. Dennis is Vice President of the Anamoose Civic Club, a member of the Harvey Eagles Club, & Co-Chairman of the monthly Sr. Citizen’s brunch. Both are members of the Anamoose Area Community Foundation, the Horizons Program, & past members of their respective church councils.
