The weather finally turned drier and mild Saturday, though a few puddles remained on the soccer fields of Muskego High where we were setting up for a Special Olympics tournament early in the morning. ABB Company and thus my company, ODW Logistics, ABB's warehouse, sponsors the regional soccer tournament and helps supply volunteers. Today's Journal Sentinel reports that over 1800 athletes competed among all track and field events in Muskego. Am so glad Friday's rain didn't continue through Saturday!
Waukesha County Northview Cemetery is surprisingly well-maintained for an out of the way, inactive and little-visited final resting place. Bordered by the fairgrounds on the east and the County Highway Department on the west, it's the closest cemetery to my home. I likely was the only one to visit on Memorial Day.
Ground was broken Saturday for the first home to occupy the land where the YWCA once stood on West Ave. It's nice to see something good happening with the land; nice to see a family of seven finally getting a home to call their own. It's great that the house, a two-family, will be built mainly with donated supplies and volunteer labor through Habitat for Humanity. It's a great location for a family - just down the street from Bethesda Park and very close to Central Middle, the library and downtown.
