Well here we are: - Volume 4 Issue 4
Wie geht es dir?
Welcome to summer and the fourth issue of our fourth year – I’ve always been fond of even numbers and the balance that they bring - It’s all about balance, you know. Some say I’m crazy but I like it . . .
The Chevy on our cover is the LocaLeben pick from the Father’s Day Car Show at Swan City Park. Partnering with The Cheese Wheels has given us a fun opportunity to meet some very passionate car owners and make photos of really cool cars. Made me think of Eric Clapton’s I’ve Got A Rock “N” Roll Heart. Check it out . . . a line in the song goes like this, “I get off on ‘57 Chevy’s . . .”
Summer also brings the Dodge County Fair. A Beaver Dam tradition for over 100 years – you should go! An 1889 local newspaper editorial suggested, “When you have a good thing, it is the proper thing to let the world know it and thus attract the masses.” In the spirit of a good thing and just for the fun of it - LocaLeben has a few season tickets to give away. Stop by www.LocaLeben.com over the next couple weeks – enter to win! It’s just that easy . . .
In 1965 The Man of La Mancha opened on Broadway. This summer we can enjoy this classic musical right here in Beaver Dam. I was invited to watch the very first dress rehearsal – the set is awesome! Cast and music you’re certainly going to enjoy. Ticket prices are set to accommodate everyone’s budget!
In just a few weeks the reconstruction of Front Street will be complete. Progress is also being made on the Watermark. It’s so refreshing to see these nice things happening in town - perhaps these projects will help ignite some additional energy for our little downtown . . .
Nation of Patriots Tour Homecoming ceremony will take place Saturday September 5 – Police escort from Madison; full parade through downtown Beaver Dam – Final Ceremonies at Hogs & Honeez at 2:00 p.m. Everyone is invited and welcome!
LocaLeben is – Your Local Life. As with all things in Life, there comes an end. We now provide – as a Community Service - obituary listings on Localeben.com
While we’ve had many contributions on PWYW – reality is advertising makes this little magazine possible. To borrow from a friend of mine – “no advertisers, no magazine.” Please support our Advertisers . . .
Quotes are popular these days, so I’ll leave you with one of my favorites most often credited to Groucho Marx: “Time flies like an arrow – fruit flies like a banana.”
Acting in about a dozen productions, leading the orchestra in another 40 or so musicals and conducting decades of Beaver Dam Area Orchestra, Rich Zeman felt prepared this summer to make h... Read More »
