SISTER BAY, WI (December 30, 2015) – Do you need employees for the 2016 season, or to fill a year round position? The Sister Bay Advancement Association is attending the annual UW Stout Career Fair on February 10. They are attending as a vendor, to help you and your business find quality, hospitality-focused employees for this season and year round.

Why UW Stout? Stout's hospitality major programs are some of the best in the U.S. Most of their students are Wisconsin residents, and are either looking for summer jobs related to their major(s), or internships to advance their skills. 
Students like these are our next generation of business owners and operators! We need them to fall in love with Sister Bay and Door County so they find ways to invest their lives here.

What to do if you want to participate: If you're interested in having your business represented at the UW Stout Career Fair, please contact Paige Funkhouser, email or 920.854.3230, by January 15. She will be attending and selling students on coming to work, opening or buying a business here.Cost to participate is $100, less than the cost to run classified ads! They must have minimum of 8 participants for SBAA to attend.

Come one, come all to the 7th annual Door County Short Film Fest! Short films (20 mins or less) of all family-friendly genres will be shown inside the Sister Bay Village Hall, February 12 at 7pm, and Saturday, February 13 at 9am.

More than 200 hours of film have entered the contest and they're whittling them down. They need your help to make the Film Fest a reality, and bring people to Sister Bay during a slow time of year. Please CLICK HERE for Sponsorship Information, and let Paige know if you're willing!

Typically called the Ice Out Contest, this year, Sister Bay may consider reversing it and calling it an "Ice In" Contest!
First person to guess when (if?) the bay will freeze over. It may be a short contest this year. They let you know soon.

Street Lighting: The Contractor has not received the poles from the manufacturer and a delivery date has not been confirmed. After the Contractor receives the poles, they plan to pull wire and install the light poles. Weather permitting, their intention is to do this work as soon as possible. Work expected to take 1 week to complete. 
Remaining Street Work: The Contractor will need to complete the Mill Road intersection, sidewalk (primarily on the east side of WIS 42), landscaping, retaining walls, permanent pavement marking, signage, and the parking lot on Mill Road.
Schedule: Except for the street lighting work is expected to resume on the remaining items sometime in April 2016, depending on the weather. The Contractor plans to have all work completed on or before May 26, 2016.
Traffic: Beginning with 'spring construction startup' (we think April 2016) WIS 42 will be open to northbound traffic and detoured for southbound traffic in similar fashion to 2015 traffic detours. 
Beach: The beach has some minor concrete cleanup work to be touched up; it's complete as of Friday. Foot washing stations (part of sprinkler project) will go in before summer.   

If you have further questions or comments, please contact the Project Engineer Pat Bailey at 715.574.7950 or email at  pbailey@reiengineering.com.
