“Save the Yerkes” is a phrase invented to unite a small collection of groups and as many citizens as possible to “save” the Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay from extinction and even potential destruction. There is no question that, following the first attempt to shed itself of the Yerkes nearly ten years ago, the University of Chicago is still trying to sell it off and be rid of it.

What happened to the Worshipful Master of Lake Geneva Lodge 44 is emblematic of what is happening to the core fibrous organizations that have allowed Lake Geneva to have a cohesive identity. In days gone by, those organizations, the VFW, American Legion, Masonic Lodge, Jaycees, Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club, YMCA, and so many more, have been given special allowance to avoid much of the red tape and expense other, not so community-serving organizations, might have to put up with.
