Spring in South Milwaukee: A Time for Ribbon Cuttings and Groundbreakings



Update: Growing South Milwaukee tells me the community garden groundbreaking has been cancelled. More details to come on a new date.

A few examples of why I’m so excited for the future in South Milwaukee …

Join us as we celebrate small business and community in coming weeks! And this is only the start …

  • This Friday, April 13: South Shore Family Chiropractic and South Milwaukee Family Dental ribbon cutting. Check out their beautiful new facility at 1113 College Ave., and while you’re there be sure to thank Dr. Steven for choosing to stay, grow and invest in South Milwaukee. 12:30 p.m. Details here.
  • This Friday, April 13: C3 Designs celebration event. Not quite a ribbon cutting, but there will be a red carpet! Celebrate our local jeweler’s recent national award from the Jewelers of America. 5 to 8 p.m. at 2110 10th Ave. Details here.
  • Saturday, April 22: Growing South Milwaukee Community Garden groundbreaking. Stop by and help this group of volunteers celebrate a new downtown community garden, south of the train station. 1 p.m. Details here. It’s a transformational project, which you can see in this video. Wow!
  • Saturday, May 5: Gecko Leatherworks ribbon cutting. Come check out John Jarmuskiewicz’s terrific new small business, full of handmade items. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 916 Milwaukee Ave. Details here.
  • Friday, May 18: Betty Ferchoff tells me Ferch’s Beachside opens for the season at Grant Park Beach on May 18, with weekend hours to start. Stay tuned for details.

Also coming in early May: Openings for Milwaukee Sausage Co., 1200 Milwaukee Ave.; and Katrina’s Vintage Shop, the former Green Flag Racing NASCAR store at 1218 Milwaukee Ave. I stopped into both businesses on Saturday to check out their progress and found lots of work going on — things are looking great! More to come …
