The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha has a lot going on as we approach the summer of 2012.
First and foremost, two important special events are fast approaching.
On April 21, we will have our annual Dairy State Cheese & Beer Festival at the Brat Stop. This event is great fun. Beef Tea and the New Chevelles will be back again this year to provide live music as beer aficionados taste nearly 100 different beers from dozens of breweries. Of course, the Brat Stop’s amazing brats and cheeses are available for purchase as well. Go to www.kenoshabeerfest.com to order tickets. Want to stay overnight at an area hotel? Click on “lodging partners” – the rooms reserved for Dairy State include two free tickets to this event.
On Thursday, May 17 the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha will be one of the stops for the Green Bay Packers tailgate tour. Tickets will be available at the Boys & Girls Club starting on April 2 on a first-come, first-served basis. Several Packers active and retired players will join Packers President Mark Murphy at the event. For more information, call the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha at 654-6200.
Several Summer Sports Camps will be held for grades K-8 this summer. These camps include Soccer, Lacrosse, Football, Basketball, All-Sports, and Volleyball.
