Holy engine exhaust! Things sure have been non-stop all summer! It’s been a busy last few weeks and it doesn’t look like things are going to wind down anytime soon!
Since weekends are always the highlight in Door County, this weekend is certainly no exception! Friday night I’ll be at the Door County Ice Cream Factory catching up with the dinner crowd and slurping some soft serve. Saturday, I’ll be super busy at the Summer Cherry Harvest Fest at Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Market and Winery in the morning, and on to the Sevastopol Sesquicentennial in the afternoon! I’ll be tuckered out come Sunday, so a nice service at 9 a.m. at Immanuel Lutheran in Baileys Harbor will be just the ticket to get me oiled up for Harbor Wear in Egg Harbor later that Sunday. My schedule for the rest of the week will be: Monday, July 20 Fish Creek BP; Tuesday, July 21 NDCC; Wednesday, July 22 Moretti’s; Thursday, July 23 Sister Bay Mobil; Friday, July 24 Pirate’s Cove and Northern Grill; Saturday, July 25 Pipka’s Christmas in July in Sister Bay and Seaquist’s. And remember, you can always listen for my schedule on fm 106.9 The Lodge!
Also, everyone at the Center has been gearing up for the Bill Bastian Memorial Bike Ride coming up the first Saturday in August. It sounds like it’s going to be an amazing event, with three routes: a 40-mile, a 28-mile and a family ride. There will be raffle prizes provided by area businesses and water bottles and a brat fry for lunch will be provided for all entrants. Adult participants even get a raffle ticket with their entry fee! Pre-register today for only $15/adult and $10/child to save your spot by calling (920) 854-4244 or go to www.northerndoorchildrenscenter.org to print off your pre-registration form and send it in. Registration will also be available the day of the event for $20/adult and $10/child. Registration and check-in will begin at 8 a.m. at Nor-Door Sport & Cyclery in Fish Creek with the ride running from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with lunch and the raffle drawing to follow. And don’t you worry. Yours truly will be there to cheer everyone on and congratulate them when they cross the finish line!
