The new Lake Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce, is now called Visit Lake Geneva.
This morphed travesty of an organization is finally beginning to recover and thrust itself back into the forefront of small business development around Geneva Lake again. How is it going to do that? By bringing aboard a new seasoned director who’s been an award winning executive in sales and marketing for many years. His name is Ed Svitak and he’s a hard charging pro. Ed is almost always totally booked up when it comes to getting an appointment with him in the short term, however, he’s visiting with anyone and everyone who wants to see or talk to him, so if you call his number
(262-248-1000), he’ll eventually get to you. The GSR is very excited about visiting with Ed and seeing if he’s the “real deal” on Friday of this very week. There may be some hope and light at the end of this long, winding and a bit agonizing tunnel.
Moonlight Movie on the Beach! To celebrate summer coming to an end, and just before the parade and official celebration of Labor Day on the 4th of September, there will be a movie shown for all to enjoy together on Lake Geneva’s downtown Riviera beach. The movie will start at eight p.m. and will run of the very popular motion picture called Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Grab a lawn chair, blanket and maybe some bug spray, and come on down. It’s supposed to be partly cloudy, with a predicted temperature of 52 degrees. So, wear a sweater, or hoody, but come on down.
