City declares ‘Angie From the Paper Day’
On Feb. 22, 1996, Angie Landsverk’s first article covering Waupaca Common Council appeared on the front page of the Waupaca County Post.
Headlined, “Waupaca City Council approves youth rec pact,” the article outlined a funding agreement between the city and the adjacent towns of Farmington, Dayton and Waupaca.
The three towns would pay a per capita fee in order for their youth to participate in city youth recreational programs for the same fees as city residents.
On Feb. 17, 2021, Mayor Brian Smith and the city council issued a proclamation declaring Feb. 22, 2021, as “Angie From the Paper Day.”
“She has significantly contributed to press releases and articles representing the accomplishments of the City of Waupaca Common Council,” the proclamation noted, adding, “The performance of her duties and responsibilities, and her working relationships were always characterized by an obvious dedication to getting the job well done.”
Prior to coming to the Waupaca County Post, Landsverk worked 7 1/2 years at the Oshkosh Northwestern.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
