Mayors Message December 2018
I am a little late getting my December message out. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. I am sure as the Christmas approaches, we all begin to feel the stress of buying gifts, planning meals, and families coming home for Christmas. In all hustle and bustle, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas. It’s hard to imagine having just a Christmas with no gifts and families getting together to celebrate Christ’s birth. Main Street looks great as always with Christmas decorations and all the tree lights.
The city held another successful “Small Business Saturday” after Thanksgiving. The city was buzzing with the many shoppers taking advantage of sales and promotions offered by many downtown businesses. Thank you to everyone who made the event such a huge success.
The city celebrated the Christmas Glo Celebration on Saturday night. This year we tried something new by having the celebration outside at the Caboose area off Main Street. The parade was fantastic with lots on entries and the weather cooperated which gave us a large turnout after the parade. There were free hotdogs, free p0pcorn, and free hot chocolate. Doug Collins emceed the event and played Christmas music throughout the evening. A “tree of remembrance” was dedicated by Reverend Jasmine Tesdahl as we remembered family members and friends who are no longer with us. After the dedication, the tree was lit and will remain through lit through the Christmas Season. This year we again had Tipsy Trolley give rides around town to view the Christmas lights on the homes. The bus was filled each time it went out. The winner of home decorating contest was Rick & Arica Schmidt at 619 South Randolph Street. Please take time and drive around Cuba City and view all the great lights.
The winners of the parade entries were as follows:
Best Overall Float: J VanNatta Salon & Spa
Best Walking Float: Cuba City Boy Scouts
Best Theme Float: United Methodist Church
Christmas is a very special time of year and at this time I would like to wish the citizens of Cuba City a very special “Merry Christmas & A Healthy, Happy New Year. A special wish to all the city employees, my City Council, and all of the people that comprise the committees, the commissions, and boards the effective help running the greatest city in Wisconsin. Merry Christmas to All!
