THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE

If you’ve never heard of this band, you’ll get your chance on July 11 in Egg Harbor.  The Ghost of Paul Revere is an American Folk/Alternative Country Band originally from Portland, Oregon.  Their traveling tour will take a soul/rock anthem throughout the country and Sweden! 

They began with just acoustic instruments and made a style they called, ‘Holler Folk’.  Since then they are doing things they wouldn’t have done six years ago.   They enjoy creating new things to challenge their music. 

The band will be performing at the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center on Sunday, July 11 at 7pm.  Bring your chairs, beverages and snacks for a fun evening of music.  The good news, we still have rooms available!

THE ALPINE GOLF COURSE RETURNS THIS SEASON!

The Bertschinger Family recently sold the Alpine Resort and Golf Course after 100 years of ownership.  The new owner plans to restore the resort and bring the Alpine back to life.  They are also making improvements to the golf course and club house which will be open this season to the public.

I was so pleased to hear that the new owner loves the property and wants it to remain a lodge and golf course.  I am looking forward to all their improvements.  It will be fun to watch.

FARMERS MARKETS ARE BACK!

The season opens May 7, which means summer is on its way! 

I always wondered about the history of farm markets.  Did you know they date back to Egypt over 5,000 years ago?  Farmers along the Nile came together to sell their fresh produce.  The first farmers market in the US started in Boston in 1634.  Thereafter many markets throughout the country started.  In Door County, you’ll find a market open somewhere in the county except on Monday and Thursdays.   

Here’s the lineup:

Ellison Bay Every other Friday, 4-8 pm, behind Mink River Basin, 12010 Hwy 42 – Opens May 7

Baileys Harbor Sundays, 9 am – 1 pm, Town Hall green space, 2392 Cty F – Opens May 16

Jacksonport Tuesdays, 9 am – 1 pm, Lakeside Park, 6282 Hwy 57 – Opens May 18  

Egg Harbor Fridays, 9 am – 1 pm, Harbor View Park, 7809 Hwy 42 – Opens May 21

Fish Creek Wednesdays, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm, Settlement Shops, 9106 Hwy 42 – Opens June 2

Sturgeon Bay Saturdays, 8:30 am – 12 pm, Market Square, 421 Michigan St.  – Opens June 5
