- The colors are starting to change all over the peninsula and there was no better way to spot the color change than on a bike ride and there were plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery on two wheels last weekend with the Peninsula Century Fall Classic. There were so many bicyclists from all over the country enjoying the beauty of Door County. Between the bass fisherman and the bicyclists, the peninsula was hopping with outdoor enthusiasts.
- On Sept. 19 I took a walk down to the Village Hall to catch the 8 pm showing of American Flyers and I am very glad that I did. I can’t wait for Casablanca on Sept. 26. It’s one of my all-time favorites. Tonight is the last movie in the summer series of Movies in the Park. It was a great run, I enjoyed so many of the flicks shown this year. I can’t wait to see what movies are on the list for next year. If you have any ideas, call Jason for future movie showing ideas at 920.421.4419 or send him an email at [email protected] There’s even talk about doing a winter movie series inside the Village Hall, but plans haven’t been finalized yet.
- While Mother Nature starts to strut her glorious colors, the Sister Bay Historical Society’s Corner of the Past gets to be a lovelier and lovelier place to visit. A farm market is held every Saturday from 8 am until noon but there are only two weeks left to grab up the wonderful array of freshly harvested fruits and veggies. If you think like I do, you’ll grab up all the dinner table treasures you can in the next couple weeks. Speaking of treasures, make sure you take a peek in the barn before you leave the Corner of the Past to see Door County Art League member, Pat Olson’s glorious acrylic and oil paintings.
- One of the things coming up soon is the annual Blessing of the Animals at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Sister Bay. The Feast of St. Francis is often celebrated with a Blessing of the Animals. All pets and owners are invited to the church on Oct. 4 at 1 pm where the blessing will take place in the parking lot of St. Luke’s on Canterbury Lane. Mother Barb Sajna and Deacon Joy Zakrzewski perform the blessings. It’s a fun event for pets and owners alike.
- SBAA members should check their mail for the 2016 membership renewal forms, which will be coming soon. If you turn it in by Oct. 31 you’ll get to take advantage of the early bird discount the SBAA offers.
- You can’t have your thoughts turn to autumn without getting excited about Fall Fest. This year will mark the 70th anniversary of the festival and it’s shaping up to be more fun than ever. To volunteer at the Fall Fest information tent or for pumpkin bowling on Sunday, call the Visitor’s Center at 920.854.2812.
- Well, I guess that’s all for this week. If you know of any special events which will be occurring in the Village, or would like to have me publicize birthdays or anniversaries of folks who live or work here, please provide that information to my friends at the Village Office at least one week in advance of the special day(s). Also, if you have any questions about upcoming Village projects or Village operations please don’t hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at 920.854.4118 or [email protected]
