Upcoming events in Brookfield
The following is a list of special events coming up in the Brookfield area. Some of these were supplied by my two alderwomen, Lisa Mellone and Renee' Lowerr.
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner's Town Hall Meeting, Sunday, April 27, 1PM, at the City of Brookfield's Safety Building on Calhoun Road, just north of City Hall and the library. I have never attended one of these, but I hope to make it to this one.
National Day of Prayer, Meet at the flag pole at City Hall, Thursday, May 1st, 12:20 - 12:40 PM, at Brookfield City Hall on Calhoun Road. Last year was my first, I plan on going again this year.
4th Annual Weed Out at Mary Knoll Park, Saturday, May 3rd, 9 AM - Noon, at Mary Knoll Park on Sunnyslope Rd, just south of I-94. Rain or shine, this is a great activity. Come help!
Brookfield Farmer's Market, City Hall north parking lot, Starts Saturday, May 3rd, 7:30AM - Noon. A sure sign of spring and summer, the farmer's market is a great way to start your Saturday.
Civil War Days Reenactment, Dousman Stagecoach Inn, Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday May 4th, 10 AM - 4 PM both days. This is presented by the Elmbrook Historical Society. It is a fun and informative day that features President Lincoln's Address, Fashion show, artillery/cannon firing demonstration, Inn tours, Sunday worship service, baseball game, and more! My family attended in the past and enjoyed the day immensely.
Looking ahead to summer, the band directors at Wisconsin Hills and Brookfield Central are trying to get an Elmbrook marching band together for the Brookfield 4th of July parade. If your child is a band member, contact the band directors at Wisconsin Hills and Brookfield Central for more information.
