Welcome to the Village of Rosendale, Wisconsin. Rosendale is a small community located 11 miles west of Fond du Lac in northeast Wisconsin. This website is intended to be of use to both visitors and village members alike. We welcome you to our community and hope you enjoy your time here.
A Big Thank You is in order for the many people, businesses & organizations who came together to provide the funds necessary for lighted Christmas decorations in Rosendale. In a drive spearheaded by Rennae Quast and Emajean Westphal the following businesses/groups contributed: National Bank of Waupun-Rosendale, Bluemkes Inc., Power Packaging, Rosendale Dairy, Thrivent Financial, Rosendale Lions Club, and Rosendale Cemetary Association. In addition thanks to many people who wanted this and helped by contributing money in the red cans that were in various businesses in Rosendale. Besides the 4 lighted decorations that will be placed on all 4 edges of the Village will will now have a large lighted evergreen near the intersection. This was the idea of Boyd Rasmussen who volunteered his time & equipment from Red's Tree Trimming to accomplish this task.
Representing the businesses & organizations who through their generosity provided the money for the Village of Rosendale's Christmas decorations are: (seated) Jerry Weber, Power Packaging; Jennifer Gitzel, National Bank of Waupun in Rosendale; Marcie Kunkle, Rosendale Cemetary Association; (standing) Jim Westphal, Bluemkes Inc.; Duane Ciske, Rosendale Lions; Josh Stollfus, Rosendale Dairy; & Tom Koch, Thrivent Financial
