24th Annual Campbellsport Halloween Caper Around The Corner

 The 24th annual Halloween Caper hosted by the Campbellsport Area Chamber of Commerce (CACC) is just around the corner. It will be held on Friday, Oct. 27, at Campbellsport Elementary School and run from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.
The Caper is such a unique event that no matter the age, from toddlers and kids to tweens and teens to parents and grandparents, all will have a spooktacular time. Events vary widely but all will have a Halloween theme.
The traditional hay rides, courtesy of the Campbellsport FFA alumni, will run from 5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. The hay wagons will take you through town and possibly a few stops along the way.
The Campbellsport 4-H Club is again sponsoring a craft area where children can make Halloween decorations. The craft tables will be open from 5:30 p.m.-8 p.m.
Pumpkin decorating is back at the craft area this year. You can take a pumpkin, while supplies last, and paint it with a scary face or whatever you desire and then take it home with you to display at your house.
Face painting, always popular and is sponsored by the Campbellsport Chamber of Commerce. This activity also runs from 5:30 p.m.-8 p.m.

SSSF Dedicate Memorial On Former Convent Grounds

By Andrea Hansen Abler

It was a dreary morning outside but it was full of delight and prayer inside the gymnasium at St. Matthew Catholic School on Saturday, Oct. 14. The School Sisters of St. Francis were dedicating and blessing their new memorial monument for St. Joseph Convent.
The memorial was constructed over the past couple weeks along Mill Street at the edge of the site where the convent used to stand. It was closed in 2015 and deconstructed this past year.
"This will always be our founding place," said Sister Carol Rigali, U.S. Provin-cial team member. "It will always be needed here."
The SSSF were formed in Campbellsport in 1874 to serve St. Matthew School. Their original Mother House was built here and they had a presence in Campbells-port for 141 years.
"This is where our story begins in 1874," said Sister Barbaralie Stiefer-mann. "All of that history and now today we are memorializing that convent. As Sister Carol mentioned, some times you have to let go and some of us have tearfully let it go. That place is Holy ground no matter who buys it."

The property is currently for sale by the SSSF but they wanted to construct this memorial to commemorate their 141 years in the community.
