I launched this blog in 2009 as a way to keep residents better informed on local news, information and key issues. That said, I usually don’t do much writing on local events.
Why? Jim Shelenske has those covered.
The city clerk’s (and former alderman’s) monthly eVents newsletter is an invaluable source of information on local happenings, from church dinners to shows at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center.
You can sign up for Jim’s newsletter at his strong local website: www.southmilwaukee.org. And I strongly encourage you to do so, as Jim looks to increase his email list to more than 1,000.
He published his latest, and newly redesigned, issue this week, with details on Saturday’s South Shore Noon Lions Spaghetti Dinner, the April 9 Divine Mercy Card Social and various South Milwaukee Library activities, among numerous other events.
On a related note: Another good source of local news is County Supervisor Pat Jursik’s monthly Enews. Check out the April edition here.
In an era where we are barely covered by the mainstream local media, these outlets become even more valuable. I hope you agree.
