Light Up Appleton!

I wrote a piece about Appleton’s kick off to the holiday season that took place Saturday. Light Up Appleton felt like a Hallmark Christmas movie come to life, complete with impossibly cute children, festive coffee stands, carolers, games, holiday markets and Mrs. Claus. I’m so grateful to everyone who worked so hard to put that event together.

However, in the face of yesterday’s tragedy at the Waukesha Christmas Parade, what I originally wrote seems too poignant to post.

My thoughts are with everyone involved and especially with the victims.

God bless us, everyone.

I love the new “RISE” sculpture at Houdini Plaza and both the optimism and call to action it represents. We humans help each other rise to inexplicable challenges. My thoughts are with the Waukesha Christmas Parade.
Thank you to all the businesses and organizers of Saturdays event. It was a beautiful celebration of community.
