What's so great about Summer in Wisconsin? Everything!
It’s Summer in WI - thank Goodness! It seemed like winter was going to go on forever, and spring was neither early nor kind to us this year.
When I was a kid my Mother would say “it’s sunny outside – go out and play.” I suggest we all do just that, and enjoy the WI summer while it lasts.
True, the summer solstice is still a few days away, but the signs of summer are all around us. Graduations, weddings and kids last days of school are upon us. Days are long and warm, golf courses and lakes are open, and the winter coat and boots can now be safely stored in the back of the closet (at least for a couple of months). These are the good days we all live here for – so let’s take my Mom’s advice and get out there and enjoy.
Speaking of fun things to enjoy this summer, APWA- WI has a full slate of fun, stimulating and socially significant events in stall for you to participate in this summer.
I refuse to think beyond November - that means I would have to think about the snow flying again– but I will look forward to the great APWA events in store for us this Summer, and participate in as many as possible. I hope you will too.
Many thanks to all our members who serve on our committees, and organize these fun events, and to all the Public Works professionals who work hard day in and day out. You all create the quality of life we enjoy here in WI. Wisconsin is a beautiful place, but it would not be the safe, likable space that it is without all your hard work. Now – stop working so dog-gone hard, and get out there and enjoy summer while it lasts.
