This past Monday was the deadline for Bay Ball tickets. I've heard from the organizers and they are extending the deadline this week, until the spots are gone. If you were on the fence, tip over. They need to fill the place.
I've never been to Bay Ball before .. but my wife and I will be going this year, even though we don't have kids in school.
The Harley Museum is easily the coolest venue in town. One thing you might not have noticed is with every Bay Ball ticket, you receive a free ticket to the HD Museum to be used at a future date, normally $16 a pop.
As a note, this event is not reserved for School families, it’s open to the public. Besides the 4th of July Klode festival, this is the biggest event Whitefish Bay has to offer, and the proceeds benefit the schools. It's a big, Whitefish Bay party.
And apparently, it is not fancy schmancy. No tuxes allowed "unless they come with chaps."
No reason not to go. Swing by and say hello to my wife and me.
Call/email Lori Kampschroer for tickets at 414-688-6244. Click the ticket form on the right (a bigger copy should appear).
The WFB Business Improvement District will be hosting a local Farmers' Market for eight Saturdays in August & September, from 8-noon. -- The market will be located across the street from the Fox Bay, on Berkeley, which will be blocked off.
The construction on Lake Drive is progressing normally. We're finishing week 4 of the 6 week project. With good weather, it will wrap up in a couple weeks, and it'll be opened for traffic once again.
I know the detour has been a pain for many, and I've received many emails from concerned parties, and have had a number of conversations with the Chief of Police. I am comfortable that all parties are doing the best they can with the resources they have available.
Speaking of Lake Drive, WFB will be improving pedestrian safety with some traffic calming measures, namely "continental crosswalks" (think 'big rectangles') and white edge lines that delineate the driving lanes. Should be implemented this summer.
Finally, as a follow up to the Richards School tennis court issue .. there is a new Facebook group that has information on the subject. Click here to view. (Don't have to be a Facebook user.)
There are two opportunities for public input on the school construction:
- Architectural Review Committee, Thursday (tomorrow), May 20 at 5:30pm in board room at Village Hall
- WFB School Board Open House & Meeting, Wednesday, May 26 at 6:00pm in Rm. 47 of the WFB High School
