ANNUAL SENIOR FAMILY PICNIC - Watch for Robin educating about composting of the biodegradable dinnerware that is being used for the picnic.

Platteville community senior service providers and volunteers have teamed up to host the 2nd Annual Senior Family Picnic to take place on August 28th at the United Methodist Church, 1065 Lancaster Street, Platteville. The event, planned for 4 pm to 8 pm, is a family-oriented picnic to celebrate our community’s senior citizens (those 60 years and older.) The whole family is invited to attend in recognition of the life experiences of our community’s older citizens.

An old-fashioned picnic lunch, provided by Country Kitchen, featuring traditional picnic fare, will be served from 4:30-6:30 or until the food is gone. Dairy Queen will provide Dilly Bars to cap off the meal. There is no charge for seniors 60 and older. Donations from family members who will be attending are greatly appreciated.  Activities are planned for all ages, including  BINGO, bean bag toss, the bounce house, and childhood games. There will also be door prizes and live musical entertainment by Tom Bedtka.

Youre Invited! We hope that you will be able to attend the Unveiling Ceremony of Creative Bike Rack winners, along with the Metal Arch spanning Historic 2nd Street, on Friday, May 17th at 5pm on Main Street. See complete details below.

Thanks to the creative designs of several local and regional artists and metal workers, Platteville’s Main Street will soon be home to three unique bike racks.  The creative designs were submitted in response to a competition, which was organized and managed by the Platteville Main Street Sustainability Committee and generously funded by a grant from the Platteville Community Fund.  This is the result of the Platteville Main Street Sustainability Committee’s Creative Bike Rack Design Competition, in which community members, artists and metal workers were invited to submit design proposals for functional public art bike racks to enhance the Main Street district.
