More on getting ready for the Top 5 in Marinette/Menominee

But the small business owners behind nominating Menominee and Marinette as one community for the online series “Small Business Revolution — Main Street,” which provides $500,000 in marketing promotions and physical improvements to six businesses in the winning community, said Thursday there is still a lot of work to be done.” Read more in the Eagle Herlad Extra.


Strickland helps intersect arts and community

“Celebrate Water events were on the minds of most attendees of the Jan. 12 Door County Talks lecture, ‘Building Community and Common Ground through the Arts.’ After lecturer Kelli Strickland, executive and artistic director of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, finished speaking and began the Q&A session, audience members were quick to name this yearlong series of events as Door County’s example of how different organizations are coming together to support one theme.” …Strickland’s lecture was the first in the Door Community Auditorium’s Door County Talks series, held in collaboration with the Door County Civility Project and the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. In 2019, the series is themed around promoting civility, strengthening community and encouraging empathy.” Read more in the Door County Pulse.

Don’t miss out on Jazz Fest 49, Jan. 26

“With an energized and ambitious jazz faculty at UW-Green Bay, a successful 6:30 Concert Series, and concert venues like the east side’s Blue Opus friendly to jazz, it’s plain to see that jazz culture is on the rise in Green Bay. And, as one of contemporary jazz’s hottest acts comes to town to headline Jazz Fest 49 at the Weidner Center on January 26, that’s likely a good thing,” reports Andrew Kruse-Ross for Frankly Green Bay.
