October 21 - Meeting at Lake Ivanhoe

On Saturday, October 21, the WCLA gathered for its last meeting of the year at the Lake Ivanhoe Clubhouse. Lake Ivanhoe has been recognized by the Wisconsin State Historical Society as the first African-American resort community in Wisconsin, and we were fortunate to have a speaker, James Edward Mills, present about the African-American experience in the out-of-doors, especially in the formation of the National Park Service continuing up till today.

We will reconvene in February for some great 2024 meetings. In the meantime, please check your Spam folders to see if any of our emails got lost there.

The photos show: Peter Baker, Lake Ivanhoe Property Owners Association and James Edward Mills, from the National Geographic Society, with the State Historical Marker; James speaking to the members; and James and Peter with WCLA board members.

If you have any questions about the WCLA, please send us an email - we'd love to hear from you!
