THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Business Association Plans Events, Approve Donation
Updates on up coming events, thank you letters for donations and change to the by-laws were among items of business when the Crivitz Business Association (CBA) met Wednesday, Jan. 15, at the Crivitz Lodge.
In attendance were members Elizabeth Chapman, Debbie Atwood, Veronica Taylor-Pepin, Sally Witt, Ashley McKinnon, Chris Carriveau, Sherri Kort and Debbie Fick.
A letter was received from the Crivitz School District reporting on the school surprise support and fundraiser for Joey Pickett. The CBA approved a $250 donation to the family.
It was reported the Crivitz Area Food Pantry sent a letter thanking the CBA for the generous donation of $5,990 for the Food Pantry Raffle.
The Board was informed the search for a tourism director will have to start over again as the individual hired never began work.
By a vote of 7 to 1 a change to the by-laws was approved. Now only four members or five percent of the membership will constitute a quorum to conduct meetings. Currently the organization has 80 members.
The CBA Run Into Savings event will be held and promoted the weekend of June 6-8. Members will offer discounts, specials, sidewalk sales and something special to promote the event. A Crivitz Cash drawing will also be held.
The event had been scheduled to be held in connection with the Wolverine 5K Run/Walk which had been scheduled for June. However, their date was changed to Feb. 9 at the Crivitz Youth Inc. Community Center with proceeds to benefit the Joey Pickett family.
The Easter Egg Hunt will be chaired by Sally Witt and Amanda Popp. Businesses will provide and stuff eggs with some including prizes.
Date for the Crivitz Business Association/Crivitz Recreation Association will be held April 28 at Shaffers with refreshments from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. Donations of prizes are being requested. Funds raised help support the Tourist Information booth.
Ashley McKinnon will host a free seminar on maximizing Social Security on Feb. 5 at Renes Supper Club at 6 p.m. The event is posted on the www.crivitz.com website.
In other business, the group was informed that the former Platter Restaurant and Motel, currently known as Lake Noquebay Lodge, completely remodeled the motel. The new manager is also working on the restaurant area and plans to open it soon for breakfast and lunch.
