Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
From our Garlic Mustard Pickin' Friends:
On Saturday Oct 25th The Garlic Mustard Pickers will be helping Friends of
Grant Park with a family event. It's the "Celtic Halloween" party, with a
costume parade for kids, followed by a performance of Irish and Scottish
songs about "ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that
go bump in the night."
Location is the Grant Park Golf Course Clubhouse (at the east end of
Hawthorne Ave in South Milwaukee). Doors open at 6 pm. A kids' costume
parade is at 6:30, and the music starts in earnest at 7 pm. It's $5 for
adults, $2 for kids. Admission gets you a dessert and a beverage (soda or
hot cider, etc.) and a lot of fun music that you'll never hear anywhere
This event is only done every other year. If you miss this one, you'll have
to wait until 2010 for the next one.
