WebWise Design & Marketing recently launched a website for Fennimore Area Health Services, Ltd, a non-profit foundation in Fennimore, Wisconsin. FAHS firmly planted its community roots when it was incorporated in 1983.
The initial Board of Directors, under the direction of then president James Larson, included Sarah Lendosky, Kathy Borowski, Keith Rands, Russell May, Doug Daeschel, Robert Novinska, Ray Hoffman, Willis Hamilton, Richard Nelson, and Sybil Koenecke. They initiated a fund drive, which began in May of 1983, to raise funds for the construction of a medical clinic. You may read all about the history here https://fahsltd.com/history/.
The FAHS Board at their discretion annually awards scholarships to eligible applicants pursuing an education in a healthcare-related field. Fennimore School District High School seniors and graduates attending college who meet the requirements may apply. FAHS also awards eligible Fennimore area college students (including returning adults) who are continuing their education.
The Fennimore Area Health Services Foundation supports community health-related entities and services providing donations annually and on a per instance basis. A few examples:
- Fennimore Rescue Squad
- Fennimore Fire Department
- Dwight Parker Library (Health and Wellness Collection)
- Aiming for Acceptance
- Fennimore Schools – Portable AED devices
