4th of July

The fourth of July was celebrated at Veterans Park on Terrace Street. We had flags, food, and fireworks. We thank all those who helped at the concession building and those who participated in the flag ceremony.  A special thanks to Steve Yardley who cooked the hamburgers, brats, and hot dogs. The community was lining up to enjoy the basic Fourth of July culinary delights.

Memorial Markers

This year, while placing flags on the graves of our veterans for the Memorial Day ceremonies, we noticed that many of our veteran’s graves were not identified with the veteran’s bronze markers. Our post is willing to provide, at no charge, your loved ones with a flag holding marker, if you desire one. Due to veteran administration requirements, we will need to get a signed letter from the immediate family requesting the marker be place at the grave site. We will provide a plastic marker like the one shown below, which is six inches in diameter.  Please contact George Ballman at 262-728-3558 if you are interested. We will provide the signature letter for you to sign and return. We will also need the location of the grave site of your loved one, such as Section A, lot #14 at Spring Grove Cemetery.

 

 

Smelt Fry

We are again holding our Friday night Smelt fry the fourth Friday of each month. The cost of the dinner is $9.00 for adults and 5.00 for children under 12. The doors open at 5:00 pm, serving will begin at 5:30 and run until 7:00 pm. All profits from the smelt fry will be donated to Wisconsin Veteran’s Hospitals. Dates of the event are as follows:
