Little Library for Cloverton
Weekenders Carole and Ron Hessler built this adorable Little Library for Cloverton. People can leave a book, then take a book to read.




Most of us who live out here in the township of New Dosey are senior citizens and a lot of our “get up and go” has “got up and gone”.  Therefore, we look with awe and admiration as we watch one young woman with all of the energy, hard work and drive to work 4 days a week, keep up a household with her husband, raise 2 beautiful daughters and still have time to work on a degree in pre-dentistry.

Mandy Jean Fornengo was born on August 19, 1977, in Superior, Wisconsin to Dawn and Dennis Koski.  She is the middle child of three girls- Rachel (35), Mandy (32) and Suzanne(29).  Mandy grew up in the Pattison Park area of Douglas County, Wisconsin.  She attended a local elementary school called Nemadji for a three years,and when that school was closed, she went to the new school at the time known as the Four Corners School.  She graduated from Superior Senior High School in 1995.

Upon graduation, she enrolled in a 2-year program at the Lake Superior College in Duluth, studying for a certificate in dental hygiene.  She worked first for a dentist in Rush City, then in Mora, and has been employed for 6 years now by Dr. Kristie Roberts in Pine City.

Mandy dated Dave Fornengo, the cousin of her best friend in high school, Julie Fornengo,and on February 2, 2001, they were married in the Darrow Road Church in Wisconsin, which she has attended for many years.

They lived in what she describes as a little “shack” while their lovely home was being built.  Mandy and Dave have 2 daughters- Julia was born in 2004 and Lydia arrived in 2007.

Mandy is currently working on a degree in pre-dentistry via Lake Superior College and will probably continue those studies at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

Her courses so far have been on-line, but  she will be going to night school beginning this fall of 2009.  After getting a Bachelor’s degree, she plans to apply to dental school at the University of Minnesota.

This extremely busy life leaves little time for hobbies right now, but the family does get in a fair degree of camping, which they all enjoy.

Mandy recently volunteered to serve on the newly formed New Dosey Landscaping Committee and will donate her lawn and garden skills to making the cemetery and town hall lawn look pretty.

Mandy, the entire township wishes you well in all of your plans.
