July 4th Festivities...
Taxpayer Tea Party
Americans For Prosperity has announced that a Taxpayer Tea Party will be held in the Sendik's Village Centre (former Washington Square) parking lot from 10AM to 2PM. These Tea Parties have attracted thousands of Wisconsin citizens who are simply fed up with the tax increases that continue to be approved in Wisconsin.
More information can be found here.
Parade Begins at Noon
You could take in both the Tea Party and the parade since the parade start point is just a short walk from the Sendik's Village Centre area. Weather reports indicate that we'll enjoy a beautiful week-end with temps in the low 80s.
Remember, if you do attend the parade, to take some canned goods along to help fill the food pantry collection carts.
Please remember that safety first is the watchword for the holiday week-end. Personal fire works, even though illegal, will certainly be seen and heard. If you engage in that activity, please be careful of person and property. Nasty things can happen, especially if one mixes alcohol with explosives or driving.
