In This Weeks Edition...

Late Season Snow Storm Hits Area

  A late season snow storm wreaked havoc on the area this past weekend.
It dumped about a foot of snow on the area at a time when people are usually starting to get outside on a regular basis, lawns are becoming green and leaves are starting to return to the trees. The weather this spring has definitely put a damper on normal springtime activities.
Spring sports at the high school are on stand-by right now with all of their facilities covered with snow. The softball, baseball and soccer teams had gotten a few games in before the weather turned but the golf team hasn't been able to get out on the course yet.
The annual Campbell-sport Lions Club brat fry was rescheduled because of the rainy and cold weather Easter weekend. It was rescheduled for this past Friday to be part of the True Value Grand Re-Opening. Unfortunately, it had to be canceled again because of the snow storm. They will have their annual steak fry this August.
After a pretty mild winter, the schools in the area had not needed to call a "snow day" because of weather. That changed on Monday when the Camp-bellsport School District and area private schools canceled school for the day. Students were pretty excited to be able to take advantage of an extended weekend.
Everyone spent a lot of time on Sunday afternoon and Monday cleaning off vehicles, sidewalks and driveways. Not what we were expecting in mid-April, but this is Wisconsin.
On Tuesday, weather reports were predicting more snow on Wednes-day. Possibly another two to four inches. But, by the weekend, it will be sunny and warmer. The snow may not be completely gone by Prom on Saturday night, but it still should be fun.

Close to a foot of snow fell in the area over the weekend requiring a lot of clean-up on Sunday and Monday. The weekend was filled with strong winds, sleet and a lot of snow. Classes in the Campbellsport School District were canceled on Monday because of weather for the first time this school year. It took a while for residents, businesses and municipalities to dig out of this one.

In This Week's Edition...

 Even though the weather was bad outside, the Campbellsport True Value Home & Hardware store had some hot deals all weekend while they celebrated their Grand Re-Opening. Specials could be found starting on Thursday night and carrying on throughout the weekend. A ribbon cutting was held on Thursday night to welcome people to the remodeled store. It looks brighter and feels bigger with the changes they made to the layout. Pictured above are members of the Schanen family, owners of the store, employees and members of the Campbellsport Area Chamber of Commerce as they were cutting the ribbon.

Upcoming Activities For Kids And Families At The Library

   On Tuesday, April 24, children are invited to the Campbellsport Public Library after school at 3:45 p.m. to create puppets from clothespins and paper. An afterschool snack will be provided.
The next morning at 10:30, preschoolers are invited to the library for stories, songs, games, and to make a craft about yellow. Both of these programs are free drop-in events.
Families join us for a free showing of Pad-dington 2 on Friday, April 27, at 4 p.m. This live action film tells the story of Padding-ton, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, who picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
This well reviewed family movie stars Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, and Hugh Bonneville. It is rated "PG." Free popcorn will be handed-out. Children ages nine and under need to attend any library program with a responsible adult.
Families should come stop by the library at any time we are open to play with the toys, make something on the craft cart, play games on the free public computer stations and to borrow movies and lots of books.
