Our city has an unbelievable collection of volunteers, and that’s especially evident with those who step up to beautify South Milwaukee.
A few recent examples …
- Today, I joined members of the city’s Beautification Committee putting corn stalks and other decorations on downtown street light poles. Next week, look for downtown scarecrows made by Blakewood and Lakeview students!
- Last Saturday, more than 50 people (a record) took part in the Friends of the Mill Pond Oak Creek cleanup.
- Earlier that week, the Garden Club, led by Patti Bergeson, stepped up to landscape the welcome sign on Lake Drive near Cudahy. A big thank you also goes out to Sue Lindmeyer Janowski for donating the hostas and Jim Schulte at Verdant Landscaping for helping us out by edging, rototiling and planting.
Thank you to everyone who helped with all of these efforts — and everyone who is committed, in big ways and small, to make South Milwaukee a more beautiful place. We will never take our volunteers for granted.
