Got the following note from City Clerk Jim Shelenske the other day …
Dear Friends of City Hall,
To me, City Hall is more than the place where government offices are located and city meetings are held. It’s also a symbol, the front door to a community, a place where newcomers build their first impressions of South Milwaukee and a place that current residents point to with pride.
That’s why we need City Hall to have a vibrant and welcoming appearance. With this in mind, the City Hall Beautification Project is well under way!
We have the blueprints and the materials, now we need YOU! Please join us Saturday, June 4th at 9:00am in front of City Hall. Bring your shovels, gloves, and gardening tools, and volunteer a few hours to help us plant flowers, trees, and shrubs. The materials have been purchased thanks to generous donations from the S.M. Lions Club and the Chamber of Commerce.
When the work is done, I will provide brats, chips, and soda for everyone.
I hope you join us in supporting this important project and make an investment in the future of South Milwaukee. We deserve a vibrant and beautiful City Hall. Help us make that happen.
Let’s get that front door looking its best!
I you can join us!
