Today would have been Les Paul's 99th. In celebration, Waukesha's Friday Night Live opened the season with GuitarTown III and live music downtown on nine stages. Weather was great and the crowd really enjoyed wandering the streets. I saw at least two businesses with lines out the doors.
A couple dozen artists, the community and Carroll students past and present took over Maxon Hall on the campus Friday evening. It was my first and last time visiting the old, stone building at the corner of Barstow and College.
Every year, thanks to the Waukesha Preservation Alliance, Waukesha 1834 Club, Waukesha Historical Society and Museum and many volunteers and sponsors, we are blessed to have a weekend in May devoted to discovery. What was Waukesha was like before we got here, what and who made it famous and what if anything remains of Waukesha's springs heyday?
Saturday was a nice day to help out with the nation's largest single-day food drive: the National Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, now in it's 22nd year.
