Mayor’s Message December 1, 2017
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. I am sure that as the Christmas season approaches everyone begins to feel the stress of buying gifts, planning meals, and families coming home for Christmas. In all the hustle and bustle, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas. Main Street looks fantastic with the Christmas decorations and the lights on the trees. Thank you to all who donated a couple of years ago towards the new decorations.
City Hall improvements have all been completed with the painting and new carpet installed. It looks great and a big “thank you” all city employees for their part in moving the furniture from one room to another and the extra effort in getting everything reorganized. Everyone in Cuba City takes great pride in keeping their homes looking great and we as a city need to do the same. Please take time to stop in and see the changes to City Hall.
The city held another very successful Small Business Saturday last week. Cuba City was buzzing with the many shoppers taking advantage of sales and promotions offered by many businesses. Prize winners were drawn at 4:30 PM. A new event added to Small Business Saturday was the Christmas lights viewing. Tipsy Trolley furnished a very nice bus to haul residents around the city viewing homes that had agreed to participate in the Christmas Lighting contest. Each person voted for their favorite home and the winners were Jeri Lyons and Terry Terpstra family. Chrissy the Elf was an excellent tour guide. Thank you to Chrissy Taylor and Becky Day for chairing the event.
The annual Christmas Glow Celebration will be help on December 9th. The day will start with a bake sale at the United Methodist Church at 10:00 AM. At 11:00 AM there will be a Kids Holiday Shop at the Elementary. There will be cookie decorating, winter carnival games, photo booth, and walking tacos will be served. From noon to 4:00 PM, there will a Craft Fair at St Rose School. The theme for this year’s parade will be “Polar Express”. The Christmas Glow Parade on Main Street will begin at 6:00 PM. Santa will be in the parade. After the parade, Santa will be at St. Rose School gymnasium until 8:00 PM. Wagon rides will be provided by the United Methodist Church. Lots of games are planned for the kids. The day will conclude with the raffle drawing at 7:00 PM.
Things are running well in the city. The have begun pouring cement for the new shop that is being constructed on the corner of Kelly and Cody streets. Maryville Construction will be the general contractor for the new building which is scheduled to be completed by June 1, 2018.
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018. I hope everyone traveling this Christmas will get to their destination and their return home safely.
