Grantoberfest in Grantsburg, WI - Welcoming Autumn

September 22, 2016

–By Andrea Kaminski–
Our newest League, LWV Upper St. Croix Valley, joined neighbors for Grantoberfest in Grantsburg. This outdoor fair offers fun for all ages, as it rings in autumn in the northwest corner of Wisconsin. The League wanted to be sure that everyone knows what they need to do to register and vote this fall. League President Marilyn Chesnik and members Mary Bjorgaard and Leigh Wahlen greeted many people they knew in their roles as business owner, former teacher, public health nurse and county juvenile court specialist. In addition to answering voters' questions, we were delighted that a number of people were interested in possibly joining this dynamic new League. The booth was also a good place to promote the League's first-ever candidate forum, scheduled for September 20, with candidates running for state Assembly and Senate scheduled to appear. This is a League that is on the move!
