Sister Bay Buzz: Library Happenings, Phone Scams, Capture the Spirit

  • The Sister Bay Lions Club Halloween Party was held at the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Station on Oct. 31, and from all accounts a great time was had by all. Many “thank yous” are extended to all the Lions Club members who worked so hard to make the Halloween party a success.
  • This month’s show at the Meadows Art Gallery is titled Connections: The People and Vision of Central America, and features the photography of Dennis Connolly. The title of the show comes from Connolly’s effort to have a relationship with his photographic subjects and his desire for viewers to connect with his and their personal feelings. The Meadows Gallery is located at Scandia Village.
  • November will be a busy month at the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Library. From 10:30 to 11:30 am on Nov. 11, Amos the Therapy Dog will return to Sister Bay to celebrate his 11th birthday. Kids of all ages are invited to read their favorite stories aloud to Amos, who is an incredibly patient, non-judgmental, and sweet four-legged listener. The Readers Rampant Book Discussion Group meets at the Library on the second Tuesday of every month at 2:30 pm, and the topic of discussion on Nov. 14 is The Little French Bistro by Nina George. New book club members are always welcome, and all of the featured books are available at the Library. The theme of the next display at the Library will be “Good Nutrition Awareness.” During November folks of all ages will be able to check out books that highlight healthy food and related craft activities. Head Librarian Christina is always looking for items to exhibit in the display case, so if you have a unique collection and might be interested in speaking about that collection, contact her at 920.854.2721.
  • As technology takes an evergrowing role in our lives, it also grows in complexity, and keeping up with security advice can be confusing. “It seems like there is always new guidance on what you should or should not be doing,” said David Cagigal, Chief Information Officer with the Wisconsin Dept. of Administration’s Division of Enterprise Technology. However, while the details of how to stay secure may change over time, there are fundamental things you can always do to protect yourself. Attackers have learned that the easiest way to bypass even the most advanced security technology is by tricking people into giving them their passwords, credit card numbers or personal data, and there have been several reports that citizens in Northern Door have been receiving suspicious calls. Authorities are recommending that we all be suspicious if and when we receive calls or emails asking for any of the previously mentioned information. For more information visit
  • Mark your calendars for Capture The Spirit, Sister Bay’s annual holiday celebration, on Nov. 24 & 25. The tree lighting ceremony takes place at approximately 4:30 pm on Friday.

  • Speaking of the holidays, in the upcoming weeks the guys from the Parks Department will work on putting up some familiar and fantastic new Christmas decorations. If all goes as planned the village parklands and properties will be transformed into a winter wonderland soon.
