Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
This weekend's 36th annual "Ye Olde Christmas Feast," presented Saturday and Sunday by South Milwaukee High School music students and dozens of support staff, featured something new. The feast (the food itself) was prepared by the school's advanced culinary students instead of being catered as in years past. And was every bit as tasty and satisfying!
Didn't catch South Milwaukee High School Theatre Company's production last night (Friday) of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged"? You missed a doozy!
The Gift Shoppe owner Judy Carlin seems excited...
Hurray! It's been a long, hard slog, but The Gift Shoppe owner, Judy Carlin, has weathered the storm. With Packard Avenue in front of The Gift Shoppe at 4805 S. Packard open as of this morning, not only will her loyal customers no longer have to take a circuitous route to get to the best gift shop along the South Shore and points west, but the shoppe will once again benefit from drive-by shoppers. The road closed last spring--a loooong six months ago. That the business survived, especially since this was the third street closing in the five years since Judy opened the shoppe, is a testiment to her perseverence and business innovation and to the customers who bought a little extra to help her stay afloat. Congratulations, Judy! And happy gift shopping Cudahy, South Milwaukee, St. Francis, Oak Creak, Milwaukee, Franklin people and hopefully customers from even further away.
