Columbus Carriage Festival:

Bands, Balls, Contests, and Tons of Fun!

FRIENDS brought the First Brigade Band to the Columbus Wisconsin Carriage Festival in June.
The Festival this year had a Civil War theme and carriage driving competitions in true antique style!
Our booth had contests running for the two days and Skylar and Wyatt Nelson won the prizes for the Kid’s Competition and David Triebold and Earl Busse won the Adult Challenge. Congratulations!!!!
The Brigade Band also played at the Civil War Ball at the end of the festivities.
And a grand time was had by all!


Annual Meeting:


annual meeting
In June all were invited to join the Board at Old World Wisconsin to witness for themselves how we are helping to bring St. Peter’s Church – the first church in Milwaukee – back to its original period and purpose.
Guests Ma & Pa also showed us how to build a log cabin by hand after we were also finished helping with some farm chores at the German Farms.
Next we road The East Troy Electric Rail Road (yes – electric! One of the last remaining originals) and danced to the juke box as we gobbled down old fashioned sundaes at Lauber’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor – filled with memories of the past!
And a great tine was had by all!
