The WFB Civic Foundation's 3rd Annual Green Day in the Bay is a week from Saturday, April 24th.
One of the main elements of GDIB is a Village-wide cleanup, which takes place from 9-10am. It's Whitefish Bay's one hour spring cleaning, powered by you and your neighbors.
Naturally, it takes tons of volunteers .. GDIB organizers have had a good response this year, but need 10-20 more people to cover the Village.
If you have an hour, please email Amy Lucas (Amy-Lukas@wi.rr.com) today and she'll give you a location to clean.
I did it last year, and it's simply amazing the amount of crud on our streets, boulevards and parks. Please consider giving up an hour of your time!
From 10am till Noon on Saturday, there are several events going on at Cahill Park, with electronics recycling, free samples of eco-friendly goods, free reusable bags, electric bike rides, and chair massages by Elements.

-- Not much news in WFB these days. Everyone always asks about City Market: I have no news. They continue to seek financing. And yes, the Village has put forth substantial financial help for CM already.
-- Remember that mystery development discussed at the CDA last month, for the entire block on Silver Spring, from Lydell to Bay Ridge? (See pic) (It includes the Bailey Law Office and Schmidt & Bartelt funeral home.)
The future tenant is .. PNC Bank.
Fear not, Whitefish Bay villagers .. your vast unfilled banking thirst, not covered by Associated, M&I, Johnson Bank, Guaranty and US Bank might now be quenched.
I smell an exciting new WFB BID slogan: Silver Spring .. Where Milwaukee Comes to Bank!
