Our Place

A deer hunting wonderland, or a reduction to deer hunting horror stories.
From December 10th to the 13th Wisconsin hunters can hunt what are called ‘antlerless deer.’  This phrase is used because most deer hunters, not all, would prefer it if they were not called baby deer killers, or fawn predators, or worse.  Yes, in Wisconsin, and in some other states, you can kill baby deer because they are more tender to eat, or just because you might blow away helpless fawns. After all, they might eat food other more mature deer could better survive on.  Really.

 

Geneva Lake Museum presents the 2nd Annual Parade of Trees.
This wonderful holiday event brings the community together for some Christmas cheer. Twenty-eight Lake Geneva businesses and organizations participated and turned the old Main Street into an awesome tree parade. The trees are all unique, creative, and beautiful. This is definitely a must-see Christmas showcase.

Admission to the museum is $9.00 for adults; kids and active military are free. One dollar is taken off the price with a donation for the Walworth County Food Pantry or Lakeland Animal Shelter. The museum has winter hours; it is open from 11 am to 3 pm on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday The Museum is closed Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

 

Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 26th.
A wonderful and hard day all at the same time. The average family, as well as individuals, struggle these days, and the necessities of life are not coming easy. Giving is needed more than ever. Not only are people struggling to provide, but they are also struggling with loneliness and, this year, with the virus and all the isolation it has brought with it.

The owner and staff of Northsiders want to help. On Thanksgiving Day, they will have a free community dinner with all the trimmings, from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m., with carryout and curbside for as many who need it. ‘Dine-in’ is available for up to fifty people. If interested, prior to or on Thanksgiving Day, send a message so an estimated plate count can be determined at facebook.com/Northsiders.

The Annual Walworth County Thanksgiving Community Dinner is also serving a free meal to anyone who needs it. However, the virus has complicated things and in-person dining will not be permitted. This has not stopped people from donating, volunteering, and preparing a wonderful traditional meal for pick-up and delivery. All meals can be picked up between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Village Supper Club at 1725 South Shore Drive in Delavan. If deliveries are needed call ahead of time call:  262-749-4621.
