Well, if you found us here, you realized our old address (URL) is no more, and hopefully we can stay here indefinitely!  This summer you can expect this site to shift to a general community (St. Nazianz) web in which the storm damage and recovery history section will become just another part.  The new site will contain community news, meeting schedules, and will offer email for board members.  If you have any ideas for what you'd like to see here, please let us know at  info@village.saint-nazianz.wi.us.    

As of Sept 29, 2000 we are accepting paid advertising to support expanded hosting of this site.  If your business would like to be seen on the internet and assist us in continuing to very affordably make the latest news and photos available to your potential customers, please contact the webmaster by email or telephone 920.693.3141 for details.  Your name, logo, and web page links could be here along with our current sponsors:

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark.  At the end of a storm is a golden sky and the sweet silver song of a lark.  Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain, though your dreams be tossed and blown.  Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone.  You'll never walk alone.
