Please help us spread the word about an exciting service that is now available to Waukesha County for involvements outside of Waukesha County as well.
Transport Waukesha was founded with the idea that many folks are stuck financially from being able to do the things that most of do on a daily basis just as a course of our lifestyle. It seems so trivial to be able to hop in your car and go where you want to go. For the lives of many in our County it is not that simple and many folks don't come to our County for that reason.
It is in the spirit of empowerment and lifestyle development that we gather on Tuesday January 22nd in a grassroots effort to rally around the lives we can share with many secluded to their homes and so forth which holds all of us back from living our lives to the fullest right hear in Wisconsin.
We want to hear your views and viewpoints to this direction. Transport Waukesha has teamed up with Tupperware to lead us into a capital campaign for the resources necessary to solve this gap that has never been address yet in the society we so relish.
The event is at ChadPad1 Waukesha Wisconsin 53188. Folks who RSVP will be given the exact address.
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please call Kurt 262-720-7031
Do you know someone that would like to create extra income?
Do you wkno who would like fee Tupperware?
Do you know somebody that would enjoy hosting a Tupperware party?
All these things go to support Transport Waukesha.
There is a setup online to look over a part of what is available in all of this that will be live until January 25th:
Folks are also invited to attend a social gathering surrounding all of these developments on January 22nd (Tuesday). If that is at all of interest to you or those you know, please let us know with an RSVP and we will provide you with the location at that time: 262-720-7031
Thank you for your support!
On Tuesday January 22nd, Transport Waukesha is hosting a Tupperware party to drive funds to the transportation resource that is available: http://www.facebook.com/events/319061061537496

Our goal is to have at least 20 people in attendance, so obviously we need your efforts to make that happen. Thank you very much.
Please direct all comments, questions, and concerns to Kurt: 262-720-7031 .

Montecito Ristorante Lounge hosting a fundraiser for Transport Waukesha to increase available transportation options: Event to be held Friday February 15th 11:30
A Waukesha-County-based team is premiering a transportation service that is now available to people with disabilities and other special needs or circumstances that give them challenges towards getting to and from where they want to go. To expand this service, Transport Waukesha is hosting a fundraiser in a capital campaign to acquire a van to make more options available to people with Waukesha County interests.
Friday, Feb. 15th @ 11:30, there is a special presention available to the public by self-advocate Chad Murphy-Price who will share his experiences in transitions under the scope of transportation for his life. A lunch is available for purchase with reservations in advance @ $12 per person. If folks are interested in this undertaking and are not looking to have lunch, please call 262-720-7031 for special arrangements.
We ask all to consider attending this event whether or not it is felt that a benefit to the fundraiser will result in their attendance. It is beneficial to have as many people as possible know about the developments and the efforts taken to improve the lives of as many people as possible. This lifestyle development endeavor is rooted in very rivoting stories about limitations around us that most people never even perceive would be a big issue and do exist.
|Significance||A holiday celebrated by those frustrated with the commercialism and pressure of the other December holidays.|
|Celebrations||Airing of Grievances, Feats of Strength, the aluminum pole, Festivus dinner, Festivus miracles|
Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of Christmas. Festivus became part of worldwide popular culture after being featured on an episode of the American TV show Seinfeld in 1997.
Festivus was conceived by writer Dan O'Keefe and was celebrated by his family as early as 1966. The holiday was later introduced into popular culture by O'Keefe's screenwriter son Daniel on an episode of Seinfeld. The holiday's celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included a Festivus dinner, an unadorned aluminum "Festivus pole," practices such as the "Airing of Grievances" and "Feats of Strength"," and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles."
Celebrants of the holiday sometimes refer to it as "a Festivus for the rest of us," a saying taken from the O'Keefe family traditions and popularized in the Seinfeld episode to describe Festivus' non-commercial aspect. It has also been described as a parody and as playful consumer resistance.

Many may not think about what a Water Ski Club may have to do now when it is so cold and even getting some nasty weather, but the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club, Inc. operates as a year-round commitment towards putting on the best possible presentation starting Memorial Day as possible. As part of this undertaking, the Club holds monthly meetings at the Sandbar Sports Pub in the Chill level with one of the group rooms.
The group is a 501c3 organization and relies on the public to determine the level of support into the family-friendly pastime and entertainment. This is the time of year that the Club moves to make major shaping on what will be possible in the following year. Based on what the membership is able to acomplish in the next half of a year will determine what is provided in the show come Memorial Day.
The monthy meetings are routinely the 1st Sunday of every month at 6:30. The up and coming meeting from the time this blog posting was submitted would be this Sunday, Nov. 4th @ 6:30 Sandbar Sports Pub Chill level group room.
If you can make it to this meeting, please do let us know.
The Club is fortunate to have a good base of water skiing talent which has made the last couple of years absolutely remarkable for the last couple of years. This puts the Club pretty comfortable on having the skiers needed to put on a high-caliber show each week, and some weeks multiple times. Anyone thinking that they would be tremendously dedicated and amazing to the team of skiers is welcomed to inquire with the Show Director or Membership Director towards assessing possibilities and limitations with that as trying towards a skiing position.
The area with more room for growth with this Club is in the area of non-skiing members. The Club very much welcomes volunteers who don't expect to ski but would enjoy being a part of this Club socially throughout the year as well as regularly pitching in to take care of the many elements existing to run this expansive organization.
The areas for volunteers can be like costumes, script production, music coordination, sound system, transportation for trailers and other equipment, work days, event coordination, boat teams, ropes, pier, and more.
Again, feel free to learn more and stay connected to the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club. We appreciate any and all support you can provide towards 2013.

This comes as an outcome to this past Sunday Sept. 30th 2012. Lions Clubs International, The Wisconsin State Polka Boosters, Knights of Columbus, American Diabetes Association, Aurora Pharmacies, Walgreen's Pharmacy, Moraine Park Technical College, diabetes educators, doTERRA, Food Pantry of Dodge County, St. Vincent de Paul, Dr. Hundt of Pewaukee, Gilda Club, and others participated in a mini-health fair, fundraiser, dinner/lunch social, and golf outing combination before Red's Packer Party at the Golf Club at Camelot. This has evolved into Red Roskopf Day for which the details for 2013 are being worked out at this time.
All individuals and groups are welcome to approach us on participating in this. The Community Group link above: http://www.bigtent.com/groups/
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please contact Kurt Roskopf: 262-720-7031
The life of Don "Red" Roskopf was celebrated September 30th, 2012 at the Golf Club at Camelot in Lomira. Red took on many leadership roles across Waukesha County and beyond, and many residents and other connections from Waukesha County contributed to a remarkable attendance for this historical event. There were over 160 people in attances with even a greater number responding in regrets of not having been able to have attended.
A big part of Red's life was dedicated and focused in his affinity for non-profit, charitable, philanthropic, and otherwise volunteer capacities and organizations. The Wisconsin State Polka Boosters were very please with how Camelot and the attendees gave warm reception to the committment towards the Wisconsin State Dance that is Polka as well as other ethnic and cultural aspect revolving around the genre. Many great events continue to talk place towards this love that Red had towards what the eventfullness of polka brought to his life and those around him: www.wisconsinpolkaboosters.com
The Golf Club at Camelot continues to welcome folks from all around the Living Lake Country areas and beyond around this great state of Wisconsin to stop into the haven with hospitality that just can't quite be experienced anywhere else. Camelot draws people on an interstate level as it did Sept. 30th with a group from OH partaking in Red Roskopf Day.
Lions Clubs International was well represented at the Camelot galla including Lions providing free diabetes screening to all patronage that was out there also enjoying fantastic fall weather.
The Packer Victory was obviously icing on the cake.
If there is anything that shows to be appealing about the Red Roskopf connections, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Kurt @ 262-720-7031. We enjoy feedback and are happy to help your undertakings in any and every way that we can.
We have the rate for renting the North hall at the Waukesha County Expo Center we are working off of. Our offer is to have businesses in Waukesha County inquire with us on advertising through this event and sponsoring this event and undertaking. We are not aware of any price break for having a partial day, so we are designing this to be an all day event. Participants, presenters, volunteers, exhibitors, groups, and so forth can make it as partial of a day as desired. This will follow like an Open House type format.
We are appealing to the commercial sector for this to have all Agencies and Organizations of Waukesha County present and have a booth there at no cost to them. This would also make it a free family day and resource fair.
Our idea for the community organizations is to have things for sale at the event and raise funds through those retail sales possibly thinking ahead to St. Patrick's Day.
We are accepting individuals to volunteer to be part of our organizational committee on this and shape it to be what is now known as Waukesha County Wednesday: Celebrate Communities and Family.
If you would like to in these ways or otherwise support this celebration and free family resource fair, please contact Kurt Roskopf: 262-720-7031 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting FREE 262-720-7031 end_of_the_skype_highlighting

A big thank you goes out to the Aurora organization for responding wholeheartedly on the call for volunteers.
Diabetes Screening Tests
Diabetes screening tests can detect the possibility of diabetes. Lions clubs often arrange for free diabetes screening tests to be performed in their communities. To conclude that a person has diabetes would require medical testing.
If anyone lacks in transportation to attend this event or any other comments, questions, or concerns, please call Kurt Roskopf 262-720-7031.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age Americans, according Pub Med Health. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine's Pub Med Health, people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are at risk for diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of diabetic retinopathy is a major factor in the prevention of visual loss. The visual screening is a separate service by the Lions that is not available at Camelot on Sept. 30th, but it is showing how diabetes is correlated to the Lions committment towards vision.
Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death and affects almost every part of the body. It leads to blindness and heart disease. Diabetes cost the U.S. 132 billion dollars. Therefore, the Foundation has taken a proactive approach to get the word out about diabetes.
Lions sponsored Diabetes literature is always available.

WLF has also distributed more than 60,000 diabetes informational brochures in several hundred communities on Diabetes Alert Day in March for the last three years.

My father was Don "Red" Roskopf. We lived in the Town of Lisbon where the house was built for my family in the 1960's before I was born in 1971. I am now living in the area again just a few blocks from that house which is still on Wooded Hills Drive.
Red grew up in Hubertus on a farm on the south side of Hubertus Road now posted as the historical Hennes Homestead as my grandfather bought that from the Hennes family.
Red's first job was at Waldschmidt's Town & Country Mart on Appleton Avenue in Menomonee Falls. Through the Purina part of that business, Red recieved a memorable training about "Standing Tall" that inspired him greatly into his career. He took on an interest to do more along the lines of engines and took on classes to understand engines better. This led him to move on to a job with A.O. Smith. Red quickly acquired an interest to go into business for himself and opened up Red's Lawn and Garden City on Main Street in Sussex in the 60's . He moved to Waukesha Avenue for a larger facility that he kept open until 1973 whereby Dave Schroeder of Schroeder Implement bought up a lot of the remaining inventory.
Red went into greenskeeping from there with North Hills and then Hartford Country Club. This gave him an opportunity with Wisconsin Turf Equipment Corp. whereby he eventually become Branch Manager in New Berlin. In 1983, Camelot Country Club did not keep up with payments on equipment purchased and when he checked out the situation he found out the course was in receivership with Valley Bank at the time in Lomira. Red put in a meager bid surprised to get a call that December that he was the new owner by the bidding process. He took our family to the Globetrotters game following that to make it a big event for our family in his announcing it to us kids what had just happened for all of us that last month.
Red owned Camelot from 1983 to 1997 when he sold it to a partnership between the Merkel and Essig families. Greg Essig still with Western Lakes sold his interest in it to the Merkel families for them to own it outright for the 1998 season. Merkels have been enjoying ownership of Camelot for 15 years having branded it as the Golf Club at Camelot.
We are holding a fall memorial outing event at Camelot on a Sunday Sept, 30th. We will have a luncheon program with perhaps live music entertainment to follow. Golfers will be encouraged to get their rounds in that morning. Golf nor the luncheon are requirements to attend the open community social event. No purchases necessary to attend and no entry fee of any kind. The Packers play at 3:15 that day against the New Orleans Saints.
Red had a notable time of volunteerism with Lions Clubs International and the Knights of Columbus. He was in the Sussex Lions, then the Lannon Lions, and then the Richfield Lions. The Richfield Lions are hosting their 42nd Annual Chicken Roast on Oct. 21st at the Richfield Chalet. We hope to help them reach a historically record attendence this year.
Red served on the Parade Committee in Menomonee Falls through his involvement with KC's
By the end of June, there will be a couple of trees planted on the Washington County Fairpark grounds with one of them in the honor of Red out of his work with the Fairpark during his time as Washington County Supervisor. He also served on the Southeastern Area Agency on Aging as Executive Director even going to a national committee session in Washington DC.
He also found time to serve with activities at Holy Hill even running a golf outing to raise money for there.
We hope to reach all that have been a part of making Red's life of triumphant accomplishments possible and all who have been touched by the life of Don "Red" Roskopf.
The fall event is intended to be a reunion of sorts for all those from Red's professional and personal undertakings and roles. We will be having a Wooded Hills, Riversbend, and Meadow Creek Crossing grouping. Past District Governors Reunion for the Lions as well as for all Lions that had known Lion Red. It will encompass a Roskopf Reunion. We are also reuniting all past employees of Red's particularily past employees of Camelot Country Club. Past teachers, administrators, and staff of Hamilton High and the district will hopeful connect to this as they had a lot of great gatherings at Camelot in the 80's.
Please help us spread the word on our intentions and initiative to rally around the legacy of Don "Red" Roskopf and share the information and contact details:

Lisbon, Wisconsin 53089
I am hoping to hear from a thousand people out there that will connect to this historical event. Even if folks can't make it on the day we end up choosing, we hope to represent the thoughts of people for this year on what they remember most about Red.

Lisbon Heritage Weekend bigger this year
More historic re-enactors scheduled to attend
Town of Lisbon —
"They say it takes about three years to really get an event like this going," Kumitsch said.
She anticipates there might be 60 to 80 historic re-enactors and exhibits. Plans also call for an increase in the number of demonstrations as well as raffle and door prizes.
The historic timeline event features historic re-enactors whose costumes, exhibits and encampments each represent a different period of time in the evolution of humankind and American history.
The event is intended to provide a weekend of historic education and entertainment as well as display the features of the 125-acre Lisbon Community Park, which has been described as "a hidden gem" in Lake Country because it is relatively unknown.
The park entrance is at Lake Five and Oakwood roads in the west-central quadrant of the town, east of the Village of Merton.
The park's northern boundaries include the Bark River and the Bug Line Recreational Trail.
The western quarter of the park is devoted to playground, picnic, athletic and park shelter activities. The central quarter of the park is a large prairie grass nature hiking trail. The eastern quarter of the park is a dense woods with walking trails that wind through the woods and near The Bug Line and Bark River.
The northern quarter of the park is where the Heritage event takes place.
The park's amenities, including nearby parking, permanent as well as portable restroom facilities, and ample camping and exhibit space, make the event attractive to the historic re-enactors.
"The word has gotten out that we have excellent facilities, and we take good care of the re-enactors who come to our event,"
The re-enactors are provided rations, ice and firewood for their overnight campsites, she explained.
New re-enactors this year will include a broom maker, blacksmith, beekeeper, Native American hoop dancer, as well as Friends of Old Timers, a group of re-enactors depicting the old west in American history and a gypsy wagon encampment.
Other new attractions this year include a Civil War camp, Elizabethan nobleman and his entourage and historic timekeepers from the colonial era. There will also be an 1860 Navy cannon and a World War II Army Air Corps headquarters encampment.
A larger cadre of donors and contributions has also increased the value and number of door and raffle prizes.
Raffle prizes have included chainsaw wood sculptures by park employee Paul Pichler, handmade log cabin bird feeders created by Kumitsch's husband, Dieter, Merton Deluxe Bird Feed from the Merton Feed Co. and a custard cake from The Merton Custard Shoppe.
Pick 'n Save and Piggy Wiggly of Sussex along with Panera Bread have contributed food and other supplies for the re-enactors' encampments. Lannon Stone Products, Payne and Dolan, Jay's Liquor in Sussex and State Farm Insurance all contributed cash or equipment for the event.
