Be fully prepared for the week at hand in Whitefish Bay. Here are five things you must know as you go out the door today.
1. There’s an election Tuesday, in case you haven’t heard. Which means you almost have your TV-watching time back from the advertising bandits. Refer to Whitefish Bay Patch’s Election Guide for the pertinent information on voting locally.
2. The Village Board will consider a recommendation from Village Manager Patrick DeGrave to award a contract to the firm of Crispell/Snyder for development of a Storm Water Utility. The firm bid $67,100, third lowest of four bidders but the lowest of those that met requirements of the request for proposals. The board also looks at a new ordinance for regulating dangerous dogs and could approve plans for proposed improvements to the Cahill Park baseball diamond. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Village Hall.
3. Shop yourself into a holiday frenzy at the Whitefish Bay Middle School Holiday Boutique, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday. A wide range of gifts from local shops and boutiques are available.
4. Never before has a Whitefish Bay football team reached the state semifinals, but that’s exactly where the Blue Dukes find themselves after rallying to beat Brookfield East on Friday night. Saturday’s game is at Kettle Moraine High School against Waunakee, the three-time defending Division 2 state champion.
5. Might you be at greater risk for certain types of breast or ovarian cancer? A lecture on types of genetic mutations that can raise those risks, and what kinds of tests are available, is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Harry and Rose Samson JCC.
