Kohler Co. campus to get
first new green building
Information provided by the
Kohler Capsule newsletter.
By now, most Kohler residents
are aware of the construction tak-
ing place on the parcel of land on
the Kohler Co. campus just off the
Highland Drive plant entrance. It’s
the site of the new LEED-certified
corporate communications build-
ing. The one-story, 79,000-square-
foot building will bring together
110 full- and part-time communi-
cations associates—from exhibit
and display experts to communica-
tions specialists—who are cur-
rently housed in four different
locations, including the photo stu-
dio in Sheboygan Falls. “As we
continue to serve our global busi-
ness partners, efficiency and pro-
ductivity are paramount for
successful communications,” said
Michael Mueller, Vice President –
Communications & Internet Serv-
ices. “Bringing us together under
one roof—really, for the first
time—is a huge step.” In addition
to less drive time and increased
collaboration, the building will
showcase sustainable features to
certify it as a LEED (Leadership in
Energy and Environmental De-
sign) building by the U.S. Green
Building Council. To receive this
certification, the building must
meet specific pre-requisites plus
credits in six different categories.
For example, when choosing the
site, the team considered ground-
water flows, wetlands and orienta-
tion to take advantage of natural
lighting; chose low or no VOC-
emitting paint, flooring systems
and other interior features; and
specified energy-efficient heating/
cooling and lighting systems. “In
the last couple of years, Kohler’s
Construction, Engineering and
Management [CEM] associates
have made huge strides in learning
about and implementing sustain-
able building practices. This is ev-
ident in what’s being done here,”
said Mike Andrews, Senior Staff
Project Manager, who’s CEM de-
sign team is working closely with
Gensler, a leading architectural
firm in building and sustainable de-
sign. Other sustainable features in-
clude waterefficient plumbing
products (of course), natural land-
scaping, and building materials
harvested and manufactured within
a 500-mile radius of Kohler. “Mul-
tiple environmental options were
taken into consideration, and that’s
a big plus for LEED,” added Joe
Azzarello, Senior Staff Engineer –
Sustainability, Kohler’s LEED
consultant on the project. Sched-
uled for completion next June, the
new building will be the Kohler
campus’s first LEED-certified new
building. In 2009, the Environmen-
tal, Health & Safety building was
LEED Silver certified in opera-
tions and maintenance for existing
Herbert V. Kohler, Jr. (fourth from left), led a ceremonial groundbreaking of the new communications building, which will be
LEED-certified sustainable new construction. Photo courtesy of Kohler Capsule newsletter.

The Lakeshore Area’s growth
and prosperity have long been en-
hanced by the charitable gifts of
many generous people who have
given back to their communities.
Today, that spirit continues with
the founding of Lakeshore Com-
munity Foundation. In partnership
with philanthropic donors,
Lakeshore Community Foundation
will help to assure that the
Lakeshore Area continues to grow
and prosper.
Our History
Lakeshore Community Founda-
tion was created in 2009 in Mani-
towoc, Wisconsin to enable the
people of the Lakeshore Area of
East Central Wisconsin to make
lasting charitable contributions to
their community. Thomas J. Bare
initiated the momentum to estab-
lish the community foundation. As
a director and President of the
West Foundation, Inc., Bare recog-
nized that there is an unmet phil-
anthropic need in the Lakeshore
Area, which would best be served
by a community foundation. Like
the visionary behind the first com-
munity foundation established in
1914, Bare wanted to establish a
vehicle that would facilitate
donors’ charitable intentions in
perpetuity. Additionally, a com-
munity foundation would make
charitable giving easy, effective,
and rewarding, helping to retain
philanthropic dollars that would
otherwise leave the Lakeshore
Upon his retirement as President
of Bank First National, Bare pur-
sued the community foundation
notion. He formed a governing
board, and the not-for-profit corpo-
ration was organized under the
laws of the State of Wisconsin to
promote and receive endowment
and other funds for the charitable
interests of the Lakeshore Area.
Often the impediment to starting a
community foundation is the ex-
pense to form it and support it op-
erationally. The board of directors
of the West Foundation, Inc. has
made a generous commitment to
create a vibrant community foun-
dation for the Lakeshore Area by
providing financial support for the
founding of Lakeshore Commu-
nity Foundation.
Lakeshore Community Founda-
tion is surrounded by neighboring
community foundations which in-
clude Community Foundation of
the Fox Valley Region, Door
County Community Foundation,
Fond du Lac Area Foundation,
Greater Green Bay Community
Foundation, Greater Milwaukee
Foundation, and Oshkosh Area
Community Foundation. For a
combined total of 266 years, these
foundations have been bringing to
life a philanthropy that is visionary
and diverse, so that donors can
make a positive impact in their
communities. As the Greater
Green Bay Community Founda-
tion celebrates its 20th anniversary
this year, President and CEO
David Pamperin stated, “A com-
munity foundation provides the
community it serves a unique phil-
anthropic infrastructure to support
causes people care about and that
are important to the community’s
quality of life. A community foun-
dation reflects the community val-
ues and priorities like no other
giving platform can because of the
broad range of donors.”
What We Do
As a tax-exempt, public charity,
Lakeshore Community Foundation
receives, administers, and distrib-
utes gifts from individuals, fami-
lies, businesses, and nonprofit
organizations for the long-term
benefit of the Lakeshore Area. The
foundation accepts a variety of
gifts including cash, stocks, bonds,
mutual funds, retirement assets,
real property, and planned gifts
such as bequests, charitable lead
trusts, charitable remainder trusts
and life insurance.
An initial gift of $25,000 will es-
tablish a fund, and a donor may
add any amount to his or her fund
at any time. If a donor is not in-
clined to establish a fund, but has
philanthropic intentions, he or she
may make contributions to any of
the existing funds.
Each fund with the community
foundation has its own identity and
charitable purpose. Each gift is in-
vested, and earnings from each
fund are used to make grants that
address community needs. Each
fund benefits from pooled invest-
ments to create a lasting commu-
nity resource. Types of funds
include the following:
Agency Fund: An agency fund
is established by a nonprofit organ-
ization for its own benefit.
Designated Fund: A designated
fund allows a donor to specify one
or more nonprofit organizations
that will be supported by the fund.
Donor Advised Fund: A donor ad-
vised fund allows the donor to eas-
ily manage charitable giving, as
part of overall financial and tax
planning, without the burden of
running a private foundation. The
donor can make grant recommen-
dations to any charity that meets
IRS guidelines. The Foundation
handles the administrative and in-
vestment management details.
Field of Interest Fund: A field
of interest fund allows a donor to
address a cause or area of particu-
lar importance to him or her, such
as animal welfare, arts and culture,
community development and pub-
lic safety, education and youth, en-
vironment, or health and human
Unrestricted Fund: An unre-
stricted fund, or fund for the com-
mon good, is a fund from which
Lakeshore Community Foundation
has complete discretion in making
distributions to meet the most
pressing community needs.
Grow-A-Fund: A Grow-A-Fund
can be established with an initial
$5,000 gift and a commitment to
build the fund to $25,000 within
five years at which time it will ma-
ture to one of the following fund
types: Agency, Designated, Donor
Advised, Field of Interest, or Un-
Our Identity
Our logo symbolizes the funda-
mental role of a community foun-
dation - perpetuity. The icon
represents the three main activities
of a community foundation in the
concept of an infinity symbol to il-
lustrate that Lakeshore Commu-
nity Foundation is committed to
gather, grow, and give charitable
financial resources in order to
build stronger, more vibrant com-
munities now and into the future.
Lakeshore Community Founda-
tion is pleased to announce that it
has established four funds with
philanthropic-minded citizens
prior to its public announcement.
It has also received its first contri-
bution to the Lakeshore Fund. The
Lakeshore Fund is the community
foundation’s permanent, unre-
stricted fund which will be used to
respond to community needs and
provide administrative support to
the community foundation for fu-
ture generations.
Lakeshore Community Founda-
tion extends its gratitude to
Thomas J. Bare for his commu-
nity-minded vision, the West

tors for its overwhelming generos-
ity, Lakeshore Community

Willis, Peters perform well
at Wisconsin State Junior
Golf Championship
The 2011 PGA Junior Champi-
onship returned for its 25th year at
Yahara Hills in Madison on June
28-29. Perhaps the most presti-
gious junior golf tournament in
Wisconsin, the event annually fea-
tures over 350 of the best junior
golfers in the state.
Coming off their WIAA State
Championship performance three
weeks prior, this was the first
major return to competition for
Kohler standouts Jenna Peters and
Logan Willis. Despite the layoff
and playing in the strongest field
in the state, Jenna shot rounds of
78-78 and Logan rounds of 80-76,
good enough for them to finish in
a tie for 12th place among all fe-
male golfers at 156. Logan’s score
earned her the third place trophy
for the girl’s 13-15 year-old age di-
vision, while Jenna finished in
tenth place in the 16-18 year old
division. Logan and Jenna were
also among the leaders in several
statistical categories during the
tournament. Logan led the tourna-
ment in total number of pars, par-
ing 27 of the 36 holes and ranked
fourth overall in percentage of
holes, played in par or better at
75%. Meanwhile, Jenna tied for
the tournament lead in eagles with
one. Jenna recorded an eagle 3 on
the par 5, 11th Hole on the West

From hundreds of potential can-
didates, the students named to the
High All-Star Soccer team will be
participating in a three day soccer
camp experience and receiving top
notch coaching that culminates in
an event, now known as “Wiscon-
sin’s Best Soccer Game.” Both
Men’s and Women’s teams are
named for this event.
The Wisconsin Masonic Soccer
Foundation sends proceeds from
admission to the All Star Soccer
Games to Shrine Hospitals and
Special Olympics. Shrine Hospi-
tals provide free burn and orthope-
dic care at over a dozen locations
nationwide. Special Olympics of
Wisconsin serves
over 10,000 fami-
lies in the state.
At the end of the
respective men’s
and women’s high
school soccer sea-
sons, the Wisconsin
Soccer Coaches As-
sociation nomi-
nated students to
receive this honor.
This year, hundreds were consid-
ered, but only a select group of
young people met the criteria as
“Masonic High School All Stars.”
Many of the players on the Ma-
sonic High School All Stars are
also All-State ath-
letes and are
among the highest
caliber high school
players in the state
of Wisconsin.
The honor of
being named to the
Masonic High
School All-Star
Soccer Team in-
cludes a three-day
soccer camp experience held at
Middleton High School in Madi-
son. Dozens of businesses and
members of the Masonic Frater-
nity that coordinate this event vol-
unteer hundreds of hours each year
to make it an exciting showcase of
All Star High School soccer talent,
and to raise funds for the charities
that the event supports.
For competition, the High
School All Stars are divided into
two separate teams “Blue” and
“Gold,” with the Men’s Blue Team
representing the North and West-
ern Counties outside the Milwau-
kee Area, and the Men’s Gold
Team representing the Metro Mil-
waukee Area.
Kohler High School soccer
player Shawn Vroom was selected
to the Blue team for the Wisconsin
Masonic All-Star boys soccer
game, July 30 at Middleton High
School in Madison. Shawn was an
All State Honorable Mention, All
Area and All Conference player for
Kohler High School in 2010. He
was the recipient of a soccer schol-
arship from Division I Northern
Illinois University.
The games featuring graduated
seniors are part of a 20-year tradi-
tion that includes a youth camp, an
all-star camp, and a recognition
breakfast. The boys’ game is at 1
p.m. Advance sale tickets are

From Clerk/
Laurie Lindow:
Share your memories of Kohler Village
Nothing brings a smile to your face — and
your heart — like a good memory. That’s
why we’re publishing a book to commemo-
rate the centennial of the Village of Kohler.
We’d love everyone — young and old — to
be part of it.
We’re inviting people to tell true-life stories
— personal reminiscences of life in
Kohler; interesting descriptions of events,
adventures, and family anecdotes; seasonal
or holiday memories; memorable people
who affected the lives of others; recollec-
tions of life “back when”; little-known his-
torical items; etc. We’re especially glad to
get humorous anecdotes.
We’d like to help residents bring back the
good times through true stories and vintage
photographs. Any appropriate memory or
photo is welcome. The editorial style will be
relaxed and conversational with a first-per-
son “I remember when” approach, so please
write your memory the way you’d relate it
to a friend. Because we would like to in-
clude as many memories as possible in the
book, please keep longer stories to no more
than 500 words.
If you would like us to consider your story,
short memory, photos, illustrations, or other
miscellaneous materials, please read the
complete list of Contributor’s Guidelines.
To be considered, email your submission to:
Or mail your submission to:
Angie Packer
517 Audubon Road
Kohler, WI 53044
Contributor’s Guidelines
By submitting material for publication, you
grant the Village of Kohler unrestricted use
of the material, including your name and
current city/state. We reserve the right to
modify, reproduce, and distribute the mate-
rial in any medium and in any manner. We
may contact you via phone or email regard-
ing your submission.
Be sure your submission contains your
name, mailing address, phone number, and
email address, if available. Don’t forget to
include the year (can be approximate) in
which your memory took place.
In an effort to involve as many contributors
as possible in this “reader-written” book, we
may edit or excerpt longer stories to fit
within our publication’s constraints.
We prefer using high-resolution (300dpi)
scans sent via email. If sending photos,
please make sure your name and address ap-
pear on the back of each photo, and identify
any information you know regarding who,
what, where, and when. You’re welcome to
send a photocopy of an original photo (for
reference only, since photocopies cannot be
reproduced in the actual publication). Or,
we suggest that you first have a reprint
made of cherished family photos before
sending them. If we use the memory, we
may ask to borrow the original or a sharp
reprint. Photos are returned upon publica-
tion. If you’re sending photos you’d like to
have returned, be sure to enclose a self-ad-
dressed return envelope with the proper re-
turn postage.
From Police Chief
Bill Rutten:
Play Vehicles: The Wisconsin statutes pro-
hibit “play vehicles” from being on the
roadways in Wisconsin. These include:
skateboards, ripsticks, and scooters. Also,
state statutes prohibit any motorized vehicle
from being operated on the sidewalks. That
would include motorized scooters. This ba-
sically leaves only private property where
permission has been granted. Please under-
stand that the state statutes cannot be
changed by Village ordinance, therefore, we
cannot permit someone to operate in viola-
tion. Many of these items are not cheap to
purchase. Please be cognizant of the rules
prior to purchasing one for the family.
2012 LPGA Championship: The planning
for next year’s LPGA Championship is al-
ready underway. I was not here in 1998, but
understand the impact that the golf tourna-
ment will have on the Village. The traffic
patterns and the other possible special
events will have to be coordinated and prop-
erly staffed. The Kohler Police Department
will handle the general calls in the Village
and will be the lead agency at the golf tour-
nament. The Kohler Police Department will
be utilizing the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s
Department for assistance on the course and
the Wisconsin State Patrol for traffic control
where necessary. The extra cost for the po-
lice related expenses for the event will be
through State of Wisconsin Tourism funds.
From Public Works
Bruce Neerhof:
According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is
the duty of every homeowner to destroy all
noxious weeds on their property before they
go to seed. Examples of noxious weeds are
Canadian thistle, English charlock, wild
mustard, creeping jenny, goats beard and
cotton-bearing trees. Also, grass that ex-
ceeds nine inches in height is in violation of
this ordinance. The Village gives five days
notice to the homeowner to mow their grass.
Otherwise, the Village will do it at the ex-
pense of the homeowner.
a holiday falls on a Monday all garbage
pick-ups will be one day later than sched-
uled. For example, Labor Day falls on Mon-
day, September 5th; therefore garbage
pick-up for that week will be on Wednes-
day, September 7th.
RECYCLING: As a reminder, all plastics,
glass, aluminum and tin cans should be
mixed together and placed in your blue re-
cycling bin. Newspapers and magazines
should be placed in a brown paper bag or
bundled and tied together. Cardboard should
be flattened and cut into 3’ x 3’ pieces. If
you have any questions regarding recycling
please contact the Department of Public
Works at 459-3881.
GARAGE SALE SIGNS: One temporary
“garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be per-
mitted on each lot or parcel. Signs located
on public property will be removed by the
Public Works or Police Department.
the months of August and September, the
Village Public Works Department will be
exercising water valves. The Department
will also be performing maintenance on fire
hydrants and flushing the mains. The work
will be performed Monday through Thurs-
day. Residents should be aware that there
will be periods of cloudy and discolored
water as sediment and mineral deposits in
the water-mains are disturbed.

youth. A coupon useable at the Youth Center
will be given to all participants. Please reg-
ister at the Pool by August 10.
Please help us keep our pool safe and clean
by following these requests:
No shoes on deck. What does this mean?
No shoes on deck mean any foot
wear, including sandals that
you wore to the pool. That
means you actually came to
the pool in this particular footwear. We ask
this because there may be foreign objects on
your footwear. We want to keep our pool
clean and safe for all. These foreign objects
may not be coming from your property but
may be dragged from others. Example: lawn
chemicals, animal feces, dirt, glass. Please
remove your footwear in the locker rooms
and replace them with footwear you would
use only at the pool.
Food and Beverages at the Pool
We ask that you consume your
snacks and any beverage, other
than water, in the designated
area on the pool deck. This is the

Volunteer spots filling fast
for the 2012 U.S. Women’s
Volunteer Spots Filling Fast for
the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open at
Blackwolf Run
Kohler Co. and the U.S.
Women’s Open are excited to an-
nounce that volunteer registration
for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open,
to be held July 2-8, 2012, is
nearly complete.
Kohler Co. hosted its first
major golf championship at
Blackwolf Run in 1998, when the
U.S. Women’s Open was decided
in a sudden-death playoff be-
tween a future hall of famer and
an unheralded amateur. In July
2012, the Women’s Open returns
to The Original Championship
Course at Blackwolf Run.
Championship organizers are
pleased with the many early and
new individuals registered to vol-
unteer for next year’s champi-
onship. Only one year out from
the championship, several com-
mittees are already filled and sev-
eral more have just a few spots
remaining. Those who are inter-
ested in participating as a volun-
teer at the 2012 U.S. Women’s
Open are encouraged to apply
quickly by completing the Online
Volunteer Application at
or calling (920) 453-2889 for
more information. Committee
choices are listed on the champi-
onship website.
“It’s quite a treat for us to invite
families and volunteers back to
the place where it all began,” said
Jim Richerson, group director of
golf for Kohler Co. and general
chairman of the 2012 U.S.
Women’s Open. “With the recent
Pete Dye-directed major mainte-
nance projects to The Original
Championship Course, Blackwolf
Run is ready for another unforget-
table Women’s Open.”
For a one-time registration fee
of $150, volunteers will receive
exclusive benefits including un-
advertised opportunities through
The American Club Resort. Those
who volunteer for the 2012 U.S.
Women’s Open will also receive
