THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz Rescue Squad Plans Two Fundraisers March 3
Issue Date: February 28, 2018
On Saturday, March 3, Crivitz Rescue Squad members will be hosting two separate events at the Crivitz Village Hall, 800 Henriette Avenue. Funds are being raised to start a community garden this spring. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to stop in for breakfast or dinner.
An "All You Can Eat Breakfast" will be held from 7 to 11 am. The menu includes scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, pancakes, sausage, coffee, juice and milk. The cost is $10 per person and $5 for children under 10 years old.
In the afternoon the menu options switch over to Gourmet Grilled Cheese sandwiches, fresh cut French fries and assorted pies. Cheese options will include any combination of Gouda, Cheddar, Feta, Mozzarella, Parmesan and Swiss cheeses. Toppings will include bacon, sautéed mushrooms and onions, fresh spinach and more. Serving will be from 3 to 8 pm. Sandwiches will cost $5 each. Pie and fries will each be $2. Monies earned will be used toward starting the work on this addition to the village.
Crivitz Rescue Squad previously purchased a piece of property behind their station to fill their need for a better entrance for their ambulances. The property sat vacant for several years after an apartment fire. The squad would like the remaining property put to good use for the public. Members of the squad are hoping to get businesses and individuals on board with turning this once eyesore into a great asset for Crivitz.
The plans are to find sponsors for 10 x 5 foot raised garden beds. Once placed, they will be available for a seasonal, very low cost, lease. Fruits, vegetables and flowers can be placed in the beds. There will be rain barrels for watering the crops. The plans are to include paths through the raised beds so that they will be accessible by wheelchair or walker, making it a wonderful addition for our elderly neighbors. A small pavilion is also planned, allowing for some relaxation in a wonderful setting. Picnic tables and an adult play area with horseshoes and beanbags is also part of the vision.
This undertaking will be operated separately from Crivitz Rescue Squad by the forming of the Crivitz Community Garden Society. Interested businesses and individuals are encouraged to join and help transition this small piece of the village into a bountiful harvest of fresh food, camaraderie and "neighboring" at its best.
