Carol Wautlet, a staff member in the Natural and Applied Sciences Office, sends thanks to the many UW-Green Bay friends and colleagues who have been supportive in the days since fire destroyed her family’s rural Kewaunee County home last Sunday, Jan. 27. “Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. Right now, we’re just trying to get through the next few steps,” Wautlet writes to co-workers in a note she allowed the LOG to share. “Bless all of you for your kindness, again. All of you are TRULY what makes this job worthwhile.” She also wants to pass along an important message: If fire strikes your home or workplace, don’t waste time accounting for possessions or otherwise delaying evacuation…get out immediately! Wautlet’s two-story house was engulfed in minutes, and she has the photos to prove it. See the story.
Details soon on support fund
Friends of Carol Wautlet are working with the Bank of Luxemburg to set up a fund to assist the family, temporarily staying with members of their extended family. We’ll include details on the fund as they become available, perhaps in our next issue of the LOG newsletter.
