Honoring Three Terrific Local Businesses, Including Our Farmers’ Market

Market committee Market 1

The South Shore Chamber of Commerce has announced it is honoring three local businesses at its Oct. 29 banquet — including one particularly near and dear to my heart: the South Milwaukee Downtown Market.

It, PDQ Tooling of St. Francis and Jen’s Sweet Treats of Cudahy will be honored at the annual awards dinner and silent auction at the Pulaski Inn.

Congratulations to all three businesses, especially our farmers’ market and the people who make it happen.

I am proud to have played a part in starting the market seven seasons ago, and I could not have predicted how big it has become. It’s humbling, and exciting, to see how far we’ve come … and where we’re headed.

We have one of the best markets in the region. Let’s all celebrate that.

Tickets for the dinner are still available for $40 each, or tables of eight for $320, and can be purchased through the chamber. The proceeds of silent auction will be for the SSCC Scholarship Fund to benefit South Shore seniors pursuing higher education. Silent auction donations can be delivered to The K-Ranch, BMO Harris Bank – Cudahy Branch, or by contacting the chamber 483-8615 for pick-up.

    I would say you hit the nail on the head with your comment: “…to see how far we’ve come … and where we’re headed.” And our city logo Proud past and promising future is valid and sustainable and should not be down played, Thanks for your vision and promoting our city.
