Preparing for Haltoberfest!


We’ve been busy this month with regular— and unexpected—maintenance. It was time to repaint the bridge, which may sound like drudgery until you actually sit on the bridge in the full splendor of a warm, sunny, fall day in the beautiful Hal Warheim Park. We enjoyed our time scraping and painting, listening to others enjoy the park and getting to know those visitors.

A little more unexpected—the wind blew the kiosk over last Saturday. Our maintenance committee worked quickly to replace the kiosk posts.

Also, a tree behind the bridge is leaning into our neighbor’s yard and we are getting bids to remove it.

Some of you may not know that Hal Warheim Park is a community park, solely supported and maintained by donors and volunteers. We work hard to keep the park safe, clean and beautiful.

Join us for volunteer days, or volunteer on one of the committees or through our board. If you can and want to join our volunteer team, please contact us at The work is always more fun with a group of great people!

We are prepared and excited for Haltoberfest this Sunday afternoon. We hope many friends and neighbors can make it for free food (hot dogs, chips & cookies) and drink (lemonade & water) and music by Brigid Kaelin.
