First up, the highlight of yesterday's Trustee meeting was that WFB participated in a sale of bonds. One was a re-funding of higher-rate bonds to lower, saving the Village $335k at a paltry 2.7% interest rate, near the 42-year low for rates. Amazing.
The Civic Foundation is hosting a new event in 2010 .. the First Annual Skate Date at Cahill Ice Rink this Saturday, Jan. 23, starting at 4pm.
From 5-6pm, the First Annual WFB Broom Ball Bowl will commence. (Ok, I made that up. But there will be broom ball games at 5pm.)
The Civic Foundation will provide brooms & ball as well as hot water and hot chocolate mix. Bowls, spoons, and napkins will also be available for residents who bring their own pot of chili to eat. (Which reminds me, if you've ever wanted to make home-made "Real Chili" here's a link to a few recipes -- we've made #2 several times. It's not exactly Real Chili, but it's close enough.)
Hopefully, the ice rink will stay frozen for this new Civic Foundation event.

Finally, Bay Ball is going to happen this year on Friday June 4th at the new Harley Museum.
Pulling off the Bay Ball takes a load of volunteers. If you could help out with publicity, raffles, logistics, baskets, reservations .. whatever, please drop an email to one of these co-chairs:
