A Toast to Our Hosts

Thank you to our hosts, the Sheboygan County Historical Society and Museum and the Mead Public Library, for hosting the Tour exhibit and the week of programming for the month of October. From the view of the Loft in Mead Library, we saw the colors of Lake Michigan change, just as author Kevin Myazaki captured in his photos in Perimeter and explained to a crowed of lake lovers in that very room.

Not only did we travel around Lake Michigan with Kevin Myazaki, families took rides into the past on a stagecoach provided by Wade House at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum for the Fall Family Fun Day.

We had so many wonderful experiences in Sheboygan that could not have happened without the incredible hospitality that we met when we first walked through the library and museum doors. Thank you Sheboygan! We look forward to seeing you soon!
