Koval Michael C. Koval began his career with the Madison Police Department (MPD) in 1983. His educational background includes being a proud graduate of Madison West High School (which he still proclaims to be the best high school in Madison), a graduate of UW- Madison with a Journalism Degree and obtaining his Law Degree from William Mitchell College of Law. Before becoming the Chief of Police in April of 2014 he was a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He subsequently returned to MPD and served in Patrol Services. Koval then became the Sergeant of Recruitment and Training for 17 years. During Koval’s tenure he has served in a variety of roles which include police officer, field training officer, field training supervisor, SWAT hostage negotiator, critical response team supervisor, primary legal instructor and sergeant. He is a certified trainer in many State-endorsed subject areas, but favorites include Professional Communications, Crisis Management, Community Policing, Constitutional Law, and Ethics. Koval was an original member of the team which introduced the Department’s first narcotics detection dog, assisted with the City of Madison’s first police staffing analysis team, created open enrollment recruiting, served on the State of Wisconsin’s Law Instructor Advisory Committee and led the Department’s legal transition team in teaching mandatory arrest for domestic violence. Chief Koval is a native of Wisconsin. He enjoys all kinds of sports (in his college days he was Bucky Badger for football, basketball and hockey for three years), but dating back to his childhood days he is particularly passionate about Notre Dame Football! ‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑-----------‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑Clip‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑ Spring Breakfast at Olbrich Botanical Gardens Reservations are due by Friday, May 15.

PA G E 2 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY 2015 Assn. Board Highlights Interior Refurbishment By Betty Brunner, Board Secretary By Larry Long, Director of Plant Operations April 13, 2015 Attic Angel Place is embarking on a multi-year multi-phase update of the interior décor in the facility. Working with an interior decorator who specializes in senior living, new carpet, wallcovering and paint have been selected. Attic Angel Association Interior Review Committee (IRC) has participated in the selections. Phase I has started and includes the main and lower level common areas as well as all hallways of the Apartments. Completion of the project will take approximately three months. In the coming weeks a communication process will be established to keep residents and visitors informed about the affected areas and overall progress. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this renovation process. We are confident you will enjoy the finished results. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 662-8828 or [email protected] Bob Lee, Director of Children and Family Services, Dane County Human Services, and Rob Chance, Community Program Manager, were invited to discuss current needs in Dane County. The Community Grants Committee also joined the meeting. Bob and Rob indicated there are many mandates with money going in those directions but early childhood is not a mandate and there is not a lot of money available for those programs. Poverty is on the rise in Dane County and repeated studies show that getting off to a good start is vital for children in order to catch up with other groups. The return on investment is highest with very young children. There are programs for children pre-natal to three years but little for those between three and K. After their presentation and discussion with Community Grants Committee representatives, the Board approved the 2015-2016 annual focus which will be “Extend the provision of reading and home visitation services for children ages three to kindergarten.” A Board Evaluation was conducted and discussed. All felt the systems and processes were well done and the experience rewarding. The Activity Task Force reported that they have finished the job descriptions for the activity volunteers and the new Operations Chairs but are still working on the current Operational Chairs’ descriptions. Sue Hird and Anne Thompson were warmly thanked for their years of service as they complete their terms on the Board. The Annual Meeting will be held on April 27 and it is hoped everyone will be able to attend. A Feather in Your Wing To: Lois Buelow '02 and Marlene Jaskaniec '03, Co-Chairs of Household Birthday Parties for many years, for adding so many of their personal touches to these parties. New AAP Board Member Ellen Wickland '09 Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Madison has been my “home” since 1966. After I graduated from UW in 1968 with a degree in social work, my husband, Steven, and I left Madison for 4 years while he served in the Air Force. We returned in 1972 with 2 daughters and have lived here since. We are retired - Steven from the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office and I from St Mary’s and Affiliates Credit Union. I am an avid Badger fan and love golfing, skiing, traveling, and auditing classes on campus. In addition to being an Angel, I also volunteer at St. Mary’s Hospital and the Overture Center. I look forward to serving on the AAP Board and contributing to the commitment of Attic Angel Place - a community promoting independence and healthy living. PA G E 3 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY 2015 Attic Sale Update By Lynne Buckingham, Attic Sale Steering Committee Time is flying by and the Sale is fast approaching. It is hard to believe there is only a month left before it begins. It won’t be long before we will be loading the trucks and vans and making the big move to the church. As the old saying goes, “ Many hands make light work!” so we are counting on lots of Angels, husbands, sons, and others to help with the moving on Monday and Tuesday before the Sale begins. Sale Week Monday, June 8th - Afternoon (4-7) Loading trucks for the move. Tickets for the Sale are $15.00 and can be purchased at the Association Office, the Education Breakfast at Olbrich Gardens on May 20, and of course, they will be sold at the door on Wednesday before the Sale begins. Ticket purchases are an easy way to support the Sale. Tickets sold are pure profit- they don’t have to be cleaned, packed, or moved! Please consider purchasing a ticket for yourself as well as one or more for family or friends. They would make a great Mother’s Day gift! Wednesday, June 10th (8-12) Finish setting up Sale hours: 1 - 7:30 pm , ticketed customers only Just a reminder, if you sign up and work on Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday morning, and purchase a ticket, you will be eligible to come to the Presale on Tuesday (June 9). The times of the Presale are from 11-12 and again from 4-5. As in the past, there is a limit of three items to be purchased with payment by cash or check only. Angels with tickets will be able to purchase any number of items when the Sale is open on Wednesday (1 - 7:30). The sign up is found online so please if you haven’t already signed up, go online, find times that would work for you and sign up to help. Note that there are evening shifts to sign up to work. Please sign up multiple times and in different areas if you would like. It is always fun to try something new! Also, if you aren’t able to work at the Sale, please be sure to add your name to the unable/unavailable list. This will assist the volunteer coordinator as she attempts to fill slots. Some important dates concerning the Sale that should be placed on your calendar are: All Chairs Meeting – May 7th at 9 am This is an important meeting- information will be shared that all chairs will need to know before the Sale and final packs. Final Packs Thursday, May 7th 1-4 Tuesday, May 12th 9-12 Thursday, May 21st 1-4 Tuesday, May 26th 9-12 Tuesday, June 2nd 9-12 Many Angels will be needed at these final packs so please join us for cleaning, packing, snacks, and a good time with fellow Angels as we finish up getting ready for the Sale. Tuesday, June 9th – (8-5) Unloading and reloading trucks and vans to complete the move to the church. Setting up for the Sale. PreSale (11 - 12 and 4 - 5) for Angels with tickets who work Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday morning. (Cash only or check) Thursday, June 11th Sale hours: 8 am - 6:30 pm, open to all, free admission Friday, June 12th Sale hours: 8 am – 12 pm, open to all, price discounts. Clean up hours: 12 – about 3:30 pm. Having good quality donations is critically important to the Sale! If you have furniture you would like to donate to the Sale, please send digital photos of the items along with the dimensions to the Association Office. We would appreciate your bringing your items to the church on Tuesday (8 am - 4 pm) or Wednesday (8 am - noon) if at all possible or drop them off in the basement of the Association Office building. That would help us out tremendously. If that isn’t possible, we can schedule a pick up time on Monday (6/8) or Tuesday (6/9) only. There will be NO furniture pick up after Tuesday. Of course, other items are needed as well, so as you do your spring cleaning, please keep the Sale in mind for those clean and gently used items you no longer have a need for in your home. Please remind your family, friends and neighbors about the Sale as they clean out their closets and cupboards, too. We will accept donated items until June 1st, the day before the last Pack. After that, the priced and packed items will be loaded and moved to the church. Again a reminder, furniture will be accepted at the church on Tuesday or Wednesday (am only) the week of the Sale. We are looking forward to a great Sale. With the change in days and times, we are hoping for an even larger attendance. Also, with the addition of selling items to Angels and staff and on Craig’s list before the Sale, we have already made a profit of over $5,000. The Sale proceeds will benefit programs which extend the provision of reading and home visitation services for children ages 3 to Kindergarten and Resident Aid. Thank you, Angels, for all your efforts to help make the Sale a huge success! PA G E 4 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY Classic Clothing News Animal Week By Jean Mortenson, Sale Co-Chair By Jamie Kazmerzak, Activity Coordinator Happy Spring Cleaning! Now is the time to donate those winter clothing items that you have said “I’ll never wear again” and don’t need to put back into closet. Clean them and give to the Classic Clothing sale. And as you bring out each piece of your spring and summer wear, look it over, try on, and again say “I’ll never wear that again”. Then there is that item you purchased that was never quite right. Donate it to this classy sale as well. We also accept shoes, belts, scarves, jewelry and purses. The Sale date and time for Angel and resident shopping will be Thursday, October 8, 3-5 pm (3 items only). The Sale will open to the public Friday, October 9, 9 am - 4 pm and Saturday, October 10, 9 am -2 pm. The Middleton clothing store, Chauette, has contributed a very large donation of new clothing. A few Angels have also dropped off some very lovely items. To make this Sale a “Classic” event we need all Angels to also donate. Please take the time to go to Chauette and look around. Thank them for their generous donation to our Sale. New Monthly Schedule By Kathy Schultz, Volunteer Coordinator The new Angel schedule “Additional Monthly Opportunities” is now posted for the month of May and sign-up slots are included. This new schedule will be evolving over the next months. It will contain outings, entertainment and other activities which are in addition to the regularly scheduled Angel activities. These will be added once dates and times are determined, usually near the 15th of the month prior. As we have set information for future months, those will be entered as well. We would also like to use this vehicle to communicate needs which are not date-specific. Some which come to mind are Mending; 1:1 Visits; and Fresh Air Walks (taking residents outside for a change of scenery and a breath of fresh air!). I will keep you posted as we move in this direction! If you haven’t already done so, please check out the May schedule (under Schedules/Calendars) and add your name! Thank you! 2015 Bunnies, and birds, and bees, oh my! You are welcome to join the Attic Angel Community in celebrating Animal Week, May 11 - 15, organized by the Activity Department. As one of our Community-wide events, these programs are open to residents, staff and volunteers and will feature a variety of activities throughout the building, with guest speakers and an animal exhibit in the Community Room. Planning is still underway, but you can look forward to presentations from Madison Audubon Society’s Executive Director, Macfarlane Pheasants' Research Manager, and our very own AAP Bus Driver/hobby beekeeper. In addition, Activity Coordinators are getting creative in continuing the theme in each level of care by offering educational, artistic, interactive, and even tasty animal themed programs. Check out the monthly calendars in May for more details. We are looking forward to getting WILD with you! Can You Help? Keep an eye out for the monthly email and online schedule from Kathy Schultz which will list volunteer opportunities for the month of May, including assistance needed during Animal Week. If you have any animal themed decorations, memorabilia, souvenirs, artwork, sculptures, etc. that you would be willing to share with us to enhance the ambiance, please clearly label the item(s) and bring them to the Activity Coordinator’s office in the Health Center. Items will be displayed during programming. If you have a story to go along with your items, please come and share it with the residents to generate discussion or write it down, and we will share it with the residents! Thank you! Schedules Online The monthly schedules for the new 2015-16 activities are now online. You will see that they are named differently, e.g., AM Activities rather than HC/HH AM Activities. The level of care can be chosen inside of the schedule. There are a few activities which are still being worked through: Devotions/Bible Study is up for May and June under Devotions and Sunday Worship is not available yet. Also, AM Activities for Health Center and Households is up through July (along with Haven for the entire year). Please go in and make your selections for when you are able to volunteer or call the office for assistance. PA G E 5 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY 2015 Building on a Strong Foundation: Many Children, One Mission, One City By Judy Brannstrom, Development Officer Attic Angel generosity is once again supporting early childhood learning on Madison’s South Side! On April 16, 2015, Attic Angel Association gave $100,000 to One City Early Learning Center, a new preschool focused on literacy development that will open this fall on Madison’s South side. Board Chair Cindy Zellers and President Mary Ann Drescher presented the gift to Kaleem Caire, founder of One City. (See picture below.) The new learning center will be housed in the former Child Development Inc. (CDI) facility on Fisher Street. The building provides a strong foundation for this new project. President Mary Ann Drescher described the gift as “an extension of our long and deep commitment to ensuring that children in Dane County have the best possible start to life.” She said, “We believe we have a shared responsibility to do what we can to create a pathway to a successful and meaningful future for our children and community. Investing in our children through One City is a significant way for us to do this.” One City’s mission is to prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life, and to ensure they enter grade school reading-ready. One City will use a two-generation model that emphasizes three priorities: (1) early literacy, school readiness and healthy child development among young children; (2) effective parenting and strong families; and (3) a safe and resource-filled neighborhood. Attic Angel is no stranger to the Fisher Street facility. The building signifies Attic Angel’s longtime commitment to young children. In 1969 Attic Angel Association fully financed construction of this South Madison Day Care Center that was home to Child Development, Inc. from 1969 to 2014. Attic Angel assumed financial responsibility for upkeep of the building until the building was gifted to CDI in the early 1990s. Attic Angel and its members supported CDI for over 30 years with both financial and volunteer support. The building’s “good bones” will be spruced up and transformed into the new One City Early Learning Center. Attic Angel Association credits generations of loyal donors and volunteers and the careful work of its investment advisors for their roles in enabling this significant gift to One City. With a mission to support children and older adults in Dane County, the Association continues its tradition of identifying community needs and finding ways to meet them. One City’s mission is "Many Children, One Mission, One City.” Attic Angel Association is proud to support this unified effort to improve the quality of life for young children. Many Angels. Mission-Focused. Serving a Great Community! Safety First By Heidi Frey, Wellness Coordinator Health and Safety Fair Wednesday, May 13 10:30 am - 1:30 pm AAP Community Room Please join us for the Health & Safety Fair! We have about 20 vendors coming to bring you information related to health and safety. Come and have some food snacks and learn about the “power foods”. Meet some of our onsite health providers at Attic Angel Place: Aegis Therapies, Heather Donald - physical, occupational, and speech therapy providers, Dr. Heidi – audiologist, Dr. McCormick – dentist, and Rolfe Lehman – massage therapist. We have booths with information on essential oils, phone safety, internet safety, eye safety, sun safety and how to protect yourself from Medicare fraud. Meet representatives and learn about the resources in our Community that are set up for residents through Agrace, SAIL, Theater Bus and the Coalition for Wisconsin Aging Groups. Come for the food, for the free massage, or just for the fun community of people. Door prizes too! PA G E 6 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY 2015 Cupcake Time for Falk School New Association Board Members By Jeanne Schultz, Planning & Outreach Committee Chair Mary Booth '07 It is truly an honor to be invited to join the Board of Attic Angel Association. I became an Angel with the Class of 2007 and have found meeting and working with the residents and other Angels both interesting and rewarding. I am currently the Editor of the Herald and enjoy Angel Choir and the many other aspects of volunteering at Attic Angel. I grew up in Onarga, IL, the oldest of four children, and have a BS degree from UW-Madison. I have two grown daughters and four fabulous grandkids. Volunteering has been a big part of my life since graduation – in Neenah for 20 years and in the Milwaukee area for about 20 years. I also enjoy travel, reading, and Jazzercise. The Falk Elementary School Fun Fair will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015. This will be our fifth year participating in this fun activity that is a fundraising event for the school. Our role is supplying the cakes and cupcakes for the cakewalk and then running the cakewalk during the fair. We are in need of baked or purchased cupcakes or small cakes to be donated and dropped off at the Association small conference room by 12:00 on Friday, May 1st. It is best to box them in disposable containers, 6 cupcakes to a container or small cakes in plastic containers. With your help this will be another successful fun festival for the students and their families in the Falk neighborhood. Donations of baked goods may be home made or store bought. I plan on picking them up Friday around 12:00 and will see that they are safely delivered to school Saturday. If you would like to participate in the event from 12 -3 pm on Sat. May 2nd, please contact me at 877-1163 or e-mail: [email protected] Thank you! Your support is greatly appreciated.

I was born and raised in Madison and graduated from the UW. My husband Tom and I have lived in the same home since 1974 (and yes, I do need to clean out my attic!) I was a third grade teacher in McFarland and Verona before our children were born and enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom. I did hold a few jobettes including being an Educational Assistant at Randall School and a Seminar Coordinator for the State Bar of WI. I am a proud member of the Angel Class of '02 led by Dorothy Traisman. I was also fortunate to be invited to be Intern Advisor for the Class of '08 – a wonderful group of women. My interests include spending time with family and friends. My son, Chris, and his wife live in Verona and our daughter, Katy, and her husband live in Fitchburg with our three grandchildren. Lucky us! Enjoying the outdoors, gardening, being in two bridge clubs, two book clubs and P.E.O. Chapter H also keeps me happy. My family was fortunate to have received the Angel Touch when my mother Bobbie Hammel was a resident of Attic Angel Place. Her last years were filled with kind caregivers, new friends and a love of the Art Studio. PA G E 7 • ANGEL HERALD • M AY 2015 AAP Board Highlights By Sue Bush, AAP Board Secretary April 16, 2015 Kelly Rogers, Director of Sales and Marketing, and Laurie Weyenberg, Senior Living Consultant, presented a Sales and Marketing update for the education portion of our Board meeting. Currently this department consists of Kelly, Laurie and Senior Living Consultant Becky Roemer. Another staff member who will serve as Outreach Coordinator will soon be hired. Some of the initiatives being taken on by them this year include redesigning our website, adding a mobile website, creating a presence on social media and hosting community events to bring potential residents into our facility. The social media efforts have included creating a Facebook page, joining LinkedIn to recruit staff and planning a blog for our website. In addition to this online presence, Attic Angel Place will continue to do radio, television and print ads. Finally, the print materials distributed to potential residents and their families will be redone. In new business, we discussed the status of the 2015-20 Long Range Plan and the process for creating the final document, which all three Boards will need to approve. Many staff, resident and Angel hours have gone into developing action plans for implementation of our six goals. We also talked about inquiries, periodically received by Mary Ann Drescher, to buy other facilities or sell Attic Angel Place. Most such offers are the result of mass mailings and are benign. We have a policy in place for initially evaluating new opportunities to determine if they are worthy of pursuit. Plant Sale Continues By Barbara McFarland, Plant Sale Chair We’re ready for spring at Attic Angel Association! Thank you to all who contributed to our plant sale fundraiser in April.

PA G E 9 • ANGEL Oasis Resources for You! (Fifth in a Series) By Cindy Bacon Hammer, Chaplain The Oasis is a special place, a room set aside for use by individuals or families, a safe and peaceful place for contemplation, meditation, prayer or being alone with your thoughts. Located on the third floor of the Households, the Oasis may be found by taking the main elevator up to the third floor and turning left. Hymnals are an amazing resource. They contain songs of faith, of course, but they also contain prayers, service orders and endless possibilities. When spending time in the Oasis, you might feel moved to sing a hymn, or to use the words of a hymn as a prayer. For this purpose, there are several hymnals available. If you feel moved to go to the Oasis for some private time, but do not know what to do while you are there, pick up a hymnal. As you leaf through the pages, see where it leads you. There is nothing like music to lift the spirits or to express difficult emotions. If you are not sure what to do, or where to turn, try the Oasis and look for hope in the words of a song.
