Seeking Suggestions for Staying Active
pierCold weather is coming, but there are still events and opportunities for those of us who spend winter in Wisconsin. Do you have an idea for an event or activity? Don’t hesitate to contact John Podsedly, and we can explore whether it would be feasible. For instance, some members have expressed interest in ballroom dance lessons. Should we look into the established studios? Or someone who would meet with us elsewhere? An instructor who specializes in small groups? Let me know what you think at or 414-369- 4199.
