This Week in History 

On June 14, 1877, the first Flag Day observance was held on the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes. During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress adopts a resolution stating that "the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white."

Thought for the Week 

"Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day."

Another Way to Alert

Some cell phone users will begin receiving tornado warnings and other weather emergency notifications on their cell phones beginning next week as part of a national program to expand public warning capabilities.

 
Under the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system, the National Weather Services will send  warnings for tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms and flash flooding to cell phone towers.  These emergency alerts will be sent to the newer version of cell phones in affected areas.  Alerts will continue to be issued or available on other sources including radio/TV stations, on NOAA weather radios and local sirens. 
 

The alerts will include a unique ring tone and vibration.  They will not interrupt any phone calls or downloads in progress.  In addition, cell phone users will not be charged for the emergency messaging. 

Patriotic Parade

We're just a few weeks away from the Village's annual 4th of July parade. The parade, held on the 4th (Wednesday), begins at Bayside Middle School and ends at Ellsworth Park.

 

The parade will begin at 9am, and all are invited to participate. Those interested in walking the parade route should meet in the Bayside Middle School parking lot at 8:45am. Kids are encouraged to decorate their bikes for the parade, and dogs (on a leash) are welcome.

 

Residents can enjoy ice cream and coffee at Ellsworth Park following the parade. Community Bark will again be sponsoring a "Best In Show" dog program at Ellsworth Park as well.

Yours For the Taking

There is new mulch available for either delivery or pick up!  Stop by the Village's yard waste drop off site to load your mulch up, free of charge, at any time.  You can also stop into Village Hall to schedule a delivery ($75 for 5 yards). 

 

Take care of your yard waste at the same time - bring your yard waste to the drop off site and take some mulch home with you.  If you have any questions, contact Alex Henderson at Village Hall.

Stay Heat Smart

Welcome to summer!   Now that it is finally time to spend some time outside, the North Shore Health Department would like to remind everyone to put your health first when enjoying the great weather.

Remember to check on your vulnerable neighbors who may not be able to get to a cool place quickly.

 

Heat Awareness Day was June 14, follow a few tips to stay safe during times of extreme heat.  Summer heat waves have been the biggest weather-related causes of death in Wisconsin for the past 50 years, far exceeding tornadoes, severe storms and floods combined. Heat is the number one weather-related causes of death in the United States.
