Summer is coming to an end, folks.
The weather is changing. There’s a giant maple in my neighborhood that is already changing colors & dropping leaves all over the place. Shit….I even had to turn on my heated grips on my way to work one morning on the Harley!
But, before we completely pack things away for the season, let’s get out there & do some stuff this long Labor Day weekend!
Here’s a list of a few things going on in the area this weekend:
TONIGHT – ADULTS ONLY SKATE @ HIGH ROLLER FROM 8:30PM UNTIL 10:30PM
Put that knee brace on & lace up your skates for a night of FREE skating at High Roller with food, beverages & all your favorite tunes from the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s!
Yes, it’s free to attend if you register online, but it’ll cost you $6 at the door if you wait. You can also rent skates and/or rollerblades for just $2, and there is NO alcohol permitted at High Roller!

Rock the Vets is designed to continue programs that our American Legion Post 417 supports such as providing local military families with emergency financial assistance; contributing funding to accredited PTSD programs; supporting worthy youth programs such as American Legion Baseball, High School Oratorical Contest, Badger Boys and Girls States, and college scholarships; rendering military funeral honors to fallen comrades; and promoting Americanism with Color Guards at area parades and other events. 100% of all proceeds go to the above charities and causes.
