As local businesses and schools close their doors in an effort to slow the progression of the COVID-19 virus, the Board of Directors has voted to cancel all public Tuesday meetings until Milwaukee Public Schools reconvene. We highly encourage members who feel they are at risk of carrying COVID-19 or are in a vulnerable group (be it age or susceptibility) to stay home during this period of time. If you fall ill with any COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, stay home. To our potential guests: keep in mind that we are all volunteers and are no less at risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus, so we will likely be unable to sign up new members for a period of time without board approval. We will post updates as new information is available.
We thank you for your cooperation and apologize for this inconvenience.
My Husband and I wanted to put up some kind of Christmas decorations in our apartment windows over looking the city. After talking about it for a while, I decided to make lighted letters saying, “HO HO HO” …but since we only have two pairs of windows, it would have to just be, “HO HO”.
In the wee hours on Black Friday, we got the materials: 4 sheets of wood, 4 boxes of 100 count LED lights, and extension cords. After sketching out the design…
…and cutting out the letters…
…it was time to drill the 400 holes and hot glue all the lights in place.
It only took a weekend to make and hang these and I think the end result is well worth it.
