I remember years ago people said nothing ever changes in Anamoose. That definitely doesn’t apply to Anamoose now, although most of the changes are not earth-shaking.
I drove around Anamoose yesterday and took pictures of the changes that I know of.
Linda Uhlich and Bob Becker had new garages built in the last few weeks. Brad and Becky Fletschock are adding on to the back of their garage.
In the ditch north of Bonnie Kummer’s house 2 large culverts have been put in and covered with dirt. Yesterday Oakie Thompson was filling in rocks around the culverts, while Al Sherlock was smoothing out the dirt covering the culverts. This is a natural waterway, but in the past it could not handle the water and basements would flood. Bonnie said that years ago her husband Foster would sit in the ditch and pull the tall weeds that grew there. She is so happy to have this improvement after living next to the ditch for over 40 years.
Dennis and Phyllis Zimmerman just had their house painted a few weeks ago and Marino Linardon had his garage painted.
I’m sure there are other improvements that I don’t know about, but you can see that things are happening. Visitors that come to Anamoose remark what a clean neat community we have. Residents take pride in their yards.
