HOFFMAN HALL ANNUAL
WINTER CRAFT AND GIFT FAIR
Hoffman Hall hosted the
annual Winter Craft and Gift Fair on November 29th 2011, with a total of 27
booths featuring items by area crafters and vendors, a bake sale and a lunch
stand. Over 700 people attended the event, sponsored by the Prairie du Chien
Park and Recreation Department. More than $1,000 was raised for the Hoffman
Hall Campaign. A "huge" thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped
make the Fair a success.
Over 400 take part in Annual Turkey Trot
The Turkey Trot
was held on Thanksgiving Day at Hoffman Hall with approximately 400
in attendance. The mild temperatures for November contributed to
the increase in participants from last year’s event. The Turkey
Trot raised nearly $1200 for Hoffman Hall and a several boxes of
food for the Coulee Cap Food Pantry. Simply was selling coffee and
hot chocolate with the proceeds also going to the food pantry. The
race was started a little after 9:00 by John Mulrooney. He was the
starter at the first Turkey Trot held in 1980 and at almost every
Turkey Trot held since then. His son, Pat Mulrooney, was one of the
organizers of the first Turkey Trot held in Prairie du Chien, and he
participated in the 2011 event.
There was a new
route this year that showcased the new Hwy 18 bypass walking path.
Ashley Ericson of the Prairie du Chien Police Department led the way
in her squad car. The participants were directed along the route by
volunteers Kevin Aspenson, a UW-LaCrosse student, and Molly
Pedretti, a Viterbo University student.
Aaron Kiefer of
Wapakoneta, OH was the first person to cross the finish line with a
time of 18:45. He was in Prairie du Chien with Angela Baker who was
back visiting relatives. The first female finisher was Shea
Bierman, a Lancaster, WI native, in a time of 20:06. Ms. Bierman is
a graduate of UW-Platteville and was a member of their track team
when she was in college.
businesses and participants donated door prizes for this year’s
event. Prize winners names were drawn during the race, so everyone
could get home in time for the Green Bay Packer vs. Detroit Lion
football game. There were so many donations that it took Park and
Rec employee Ruth Check Gates with assistance from the Jay and Mary
Bebow family almost forty minutes to draw names for all the donated
prizes. Jack Kluesner, the emcee for the past few years, was
missed at this years event.
It was a
wonderful way to start Thanksgiving. The participants were thankful
for the good weather, good health and family and friends to share
the day with.
