The Big Bundle Up is an annual statewide campaign that collects new and gently used winter clothing items; ranging from coats, hats, gloves, sweaters to anything else needed to survive the cold winter weather. The team at Visit Lake Geneva, the Visitor & Convention Bureau, and the Chamber of Commerce for Lake Geneva have announced that they will serve as the local drop off point for the winter items. This year’s recipient of the donated items will be the Walworth County Food Pantry and Diaper Bank, which strives to provide for those in need in the communities surrounding Geneva Lake. It is able to help about 400 families per month thanks to donations and volunteers.
Residents are encouraged to drop off their winter clothing items at the Visitor Information Center at 201 Wrigley Drive, Lake Geneva, from now through November 25th. The Visitor Center is open seven days a week, and the wonderful people there look forward to supporting the community. Go there and drop off something to help people get through the approaching winter.
A week from today the fate of the infamous Hillmoor property could be decided.
The Lake Geneva City Council and Plan Commission will be meeting for a working session in the police training room of city hall Wednesday, November 13th. This working session will not permit public input, but there will be a committee of the whole meeting on December 2nd at Lake Geneva City Hall, and a public open house to review the Hillmoor Concept Plan on December 5th in the Badger High School Cafeteria. Lake Geneva residents will need a special calendar just to keep up with the many important meetings in the near future. Or the residents who are intensely interested, but unable to attend, can keep reading about the meetings, coming and past, in the Geneva Shore Report.
