Halloween Nature Hikes In The Kettle Moraine
Are you looking for a non-scary, but fun-filled Halloween event? Travel to Kettle Moraine State Forest - Northern Unit for its 19th annual Halloween Nature Hikes on Friday, Oct. 14, and Saturday, Oct. 15, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The hikes take place at the Mauthe Lake recreation area, located at N1490 County Road GGG (Campbellsport) just south of County Road SS near New Prospect.
Guided groups leave every six minutes with the last hike going out at 8:30 p.m. Each hike lasts about one hour. The event is most appropriate for those over the age of five years. In case of severe weather, the event will be canceled for that particular night.
Come marvel at the marvelous mammals including the odiferous striped skunk, swift whitetail deer, crafty raccoon, and sneaky white-footed mouse. It's sure to be an awesome adventure through the dark autumn woods!
In This Week's Edition...
Crews started tearing down St. Joseph Convent in Campbellsport last week. The past year was spent taking items out of the building and pulling items that could possible be reused, like windows, out before final demolition began. It brings the end of an era in the Campbellsport community. The School Sisters of St. Francis had been in the community for more than 150 years and moved out of St. Joseph's almost two years ago.

Child Development Days
The Campbellsport School District will be screening children ages three to four years old on Friday, Sept. 30, at Campbellsport Elementary School and on Friday, Oct. 7, at Eden Elementary School.
This screening is important because it helps us identify children who may need special services prior to entering school. It also gives us the opportunity to provide parents with recommendations about preparing their child to begin school successfully.
Parents may have their child screened at either location. Please call Eden Elementary School at 477-3291 or Campbellsport Elementary School at 533-8032 to reserve a time.
Mt. Calvary Area Couple Wins Landscaping Project
Steve and Maggie McCullough of Mt. Calvary were not expecting it when the notice came to them. Maggie was simply thinking she would receive a kneeling pad. But, the couple found out they were the lucky recipients of $5,000 worth of landscaping through the American Transmission Company's Grow Smart® Sweep-stakes.
When they received their original notice about the contest, all Maggie wanted to do was send the post card in to receive the free garden kneeling pad that all ATC landowner households were offered.
"That was good enough for me, so we sent in the postcard" Maggie said. "I didn't expect to win."
