Wasn’t the snow which fell recently beautiful? As I’m writing this column Sister Bay looks like a veritable winter wonderland and is a photographer’s dream.
- Weather permitting, the ice rink will continue to be open for more than a few days at a time. If you have any questions about the rink or the hours of operation call 920.854.7014.
- Everyone is welcome and encouraged to watch the weekly broomball games. They’re very high-energy and entertaining and are conducted every Wednesday through early February.
- Calling all Northern Door fitness enthusiasts! The Village of Sister Bay and YMCA collaborative Zumba fitness classes are being offered for people of all skill levels at the Village Hall on Wednesdays from 9 to 10 am. The instructor is Chandra Johnson, and she has been certified since 2010. No advanced registration is required and drop-ins are welcome. If you are a Sister Bay resident/guest and are a YMCA member the class is free. If you only meet one of the criteria the fee is $5 per class, and if you don’t meet either of the criteria the fee is $10 per class.
- Are you a professional painter who’s looking for spring work or do you know of any painters who might be interested in picking up an outdoor job? If so, call the village office right away as the members of the Marina Committee are looking into having the exterior of the Boathouse painted.
- The sledding hill at the Sports Complex is open and it’s really fast. The hill is very popular, especially on the weekends, and it warms my heart to hear the kids giggling, laughing and squealing with delight out at the Sports Complex.
- Bring your valentine to the 7th Annual Door County Short Film Fest.
