Sister Bay Buzz: Antique Car Show at Country Walk Shops May 28

By Zeke Jackson, Village Administrator

  • Charlie Henriksen and the folks at the Country Walk Shops are busy getting ready for the car and motorcycle show, which will be conducted Sunday, May 28. Antiques, classics, muscle cars, rat-rods, motorcycles and trucks are all welcome. Spectators will be admitted to the show grounds for free, and the show participant entry fee is $5 at the gate. Throughout the day the Sister Bay Lions will sell food and drinks, Discourse will sell coffee and juice, Tapuat Kombucha’s tasting room will be open, the Country Walk Owners Association will sell beer and refreshments, and from 2 to 5 pm LaCucina Catering will sell pizza by the slice. In addition to that, Captain John and the Bedrock Bluegrass Band as well as Ben Larsen will perform throughout the day. There will also be a Boardwalk Sale at the Country Walk Shops on May 27-28.
  • Join Sven the Goat for the annual “Roofing of the Goats Parade” at 10:30 am on June 10. The parade begins at the corner of Mill Road and South Bay Shore Drive, and the goats will be walking down the road to Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. Unless it’s snowing or raining, the parade will culminate with the first “roofing of the goats” of the season. All goats are invited to participate in the parade and goat costumes, Viking hats, and other creative endeavors are encouraged. There will also be a “goat plop” contest. All proceeds will go to Koinonia Kupboard at the First Baptist Church of Sister Bay.
  • The Liberty Grove Town Board and the Sister Bay Village Board have authorized a cooperative venture to increase recycling and protect the environment. All residents, business owners or operators, and owners of property in the Village of Sister Bay and the Town of Liberty Grove are encouraged to participate in a Shredding/Appliance Recycling Day on June 17. There will be no charge to have documents securely shredded or to recycle most computer components and small household appliances, but a fee of $5 could be charged to recycle a monitor or a unit with Freon, a fee of $10 could be charged to recycle a small TV, and a fee of $20 could be charged to recycle a console TV or a TV larger than 30”. Please note that this list is not all-inclusive. Any documents to be shredded as well as any appliances or computer components to be recycled should be brought to the parking lot at the Liberty Grove Town Hall, 11161 Old Stage Road, between 9 am and 1 pm on the 17th. There is a limit of five Bankers Boxes per household or business. Due to overwhelming response in the past, persons from other municipalities will not be allowed to participate in this program.
  • Quite a few folks have asked what’s happening on Maple Drive/County ZZ. The Door County Highway Department is doing some roadwork up here. Basically the project will focus on two sections of Maple Drive/ZZ. First, pulverizing will be done from the intersection of ZZ with Meadow Drive to the Wagon Trail Resort. This should take about a day and a half to complete. The pulverizing will then move from the intersection with N. Bay Shore Drive to Three Springs Road. The roadway will be in pulverized gravel condition until after Memorial Day weekend, but the goal is to have everything paved after the first two weeks of June. Since this is a county (not a village) project, any questions should be directed to Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej at 920.746.2500.
  • Sister Bay has offered free concerts in the park for more than 25 years. The tradition resumes on June 14 at the Sister Bay Stage in Waterfront Park. Bring your own chair, blanket or beach towel and snag a spot. Wednesday evening concerts begin at 6 pm and Saturday night movies begin shortly after dusk. The first concert of the season will feature the Modern Day Drifters, who play classic and modern country music.
  • The village will introduce a free trolley service as a mode of public transportation in the near future. The trolley will service Sister Bay’s motels, the downtown, and the Country Walk Shops via an approximately 30-minute loop during the upcoming season. We are currently accepting applications for trolley drivers. If you have strong customer service skills and possess a CDL with a passenger endorsement please submit an application ASAP. The anticipated wage rate is $18 per hour, and applications can be obtained at the Administration Office.
  • Speaking of the trolley, SBAA members will be able to see what it’s all about and ride the proposed route at the SBAA’s Annual Spring Get-Together, which has been scheduled for June 6, 5:30 to 7:30 pm. That event will be conducted at the village marina at 10733 N. Bay Shore Drive. Scott of McEvoy’s Culinaria will serve his signature paella, and Chris Milligan has guaranteed a good time will be had by all. The cost is $20 per person, and reservations are due at the SBAA Office by June 1. For further information call 920.854.3230.
  • A Parks Committee meeting has tentatively been scheduled for June 1 at 2:30 pm, and that meeting will be conducted at the fire station on Mill Road. If you want to receive copies of agendas for any upcoming village meetings please provide your name and e-mail address to the folks in the village office. Agendas and packet materials can also be accessed on the village website.
