Donations are collected, with benefits going to the MACC Fund. The display is between 92nd and 96th streets in West Allis, from Oklahoma to Montana avenues. This is a delightful outing for walking or carpooling.



Wednesday Walks
As long as we have volunteer leaders and people interested to follow in this exercise, we will continue. We walk from 11 am to noon every Wednesday, and it’s easy – if you can comfortably walk your favorite trail/path, then you can lead others on it, too. We are looking for paved paths and generally flat terrain. Call Mary Beth at (262) 443-7291 to schedule. Looking for leaders in December.



BOWLING Friday afternoons at New Berlin Bowl
We bowl on the second Friday of the month, starting at 2 pm, at New Berlin Bowl, 16000 W. Cleveland Ave. To join a team or register as a substitute, contact league secretary Judy Williamson at (262) 691-9391.
