Upcoming events

    • Tuesday, July 07, 2020
    • 6:00 PM (CDT)
    • Lapham Peak Unit, Kettle Moraine State Forest; W329 N846 Cty C, Delafield, WI

    Do you want to put a smile on someone’s face as they hike through the woods on trails? Join us at Lapham Peak on Tuesday, July 7th at 6 pm at the outdoor picnic shelter next to the Evergreen shelter. We will try to maintain social distancing. If that picnic shelter is being used by another group, we will move to the Mike Fort picnic shelter by the Homestead Hollow parking lot. Scott and Elly Miller will provide 150 stones with a base color on them. What you need to bring:

    1.       A small paint brush or Q-tips to apply accent colors to the stones.

    2.       Paint palette: a paper plate or styrofoam or cardboard, etc. (Bring a weight to hold your palette down so it doesn’t blow away in the wind.)

    3.       Creativity…..I have 5 accent colors, yellow, pink, black, red or blue. Bring any other craft paint you have or purchase. I got mine at a hardware store for $3. (Testors Craft, 2 oz. container)

    4.       Google: rock painting ideas for kids to take, hide or place on hiking trails or in parks. A lot of ideas are out there. You can also bring a permanent marker to write on the stones: believe, trust, hope, dream, family, you are perfect or beautiful, etc.

    5.       If you want to bring a few stones that you find in your yard to add to the mix, feel free to bring whatever you want. A plain gray stone is very pretty to paint on too. Hopefully we’ll be able to place some of them throughout the trails before we leave.

    If anyone would like to bring a sandwich or drink and or hike before we begin; text, message, or e-mail me with ideas. (ridgetop2@charter.net) or contact Joanne Z. or Paul K.

    This event will be held even if it rains since we will be under a covered picnic shelter. We hope to see you at Lapham on July 7th!!!!!

    • 9:00 AM (CDT)
    • NW side of Waukesha

    Join Paul and Rita for a 33-mile bike ride starting at their home on the NW side of Waukesha. We will proceed thru city streets to the new Waukesha bypass bike trail and from there to the Glacial Drumlin bike trail heading to Dousman. We’ll take a break at Cory Municipal Park in Dousman with modern bathrooms that are open. For those wanting extra credit, a 6.5 mile loop on country roads can be taken from the park while others relax in the park waiting for you to return. Besides the Glacial Drumlin bike trail, we’ll take some lightly traveled roads before heading back to Waukesha on the Lake Country bike trail. The first half of the ride will be easy with several big hills on the way back. A Wisconsin State Trail Pass is required on the Glacial Drumlin bike trail. A daily pass costing $5 can be purchased from a machine in Wales if you don’t have an annual pass.

    After the ride, join Paul and Rita in their backyard for a picnic lunch. Please bring your own food and drink. We will provide tables and chairs and we’ll maintain social distancing. Please be ready to start the ride at 9:00 am. Bike helmets are not required, but are strongly recommended. For additional information and directions to our home, call Paul at 262-309-1918.
