The Wind Point Community Club hosted a wonderful Wreath Lighting at the Lighthouse on Sunday, November 26, 2023. We had many residents in attendance along with members of the Wind Point Police Department, our lighthouse keepers, and our DPW. Adults and children were able to make Christmas decorations, decorate cookies, enjoy refreshments, and, most importantly, welcome Santa!
Santa’s escort to the Wind Point Lighthouse by the Caledonia Fire Department was led by Chief Rick Von Drasek of The Wind Point Police Department. Just as the procession was getting ready to turn down Lighthouse Road the fire department received an emergency call!  Thankfully we had our new front-end loader handy and Santa hopped in and Tom Beard of our DPW was able to finish the job and safely deliver Santa to the Lighthouse! Santa was welcomed by all the families and children anticipating his arrival! Once Santa greeted everyone, he made his way to the Lighthouse and turned on the switch that lights up the trees in front of and the wreath that adorns the side of the Wind Point Lighthouse. Santa then led the kids into the Village Hall for warm cider, hot dogs, cookies, and a private audience with the man himself! Santa then took his seat by the Christmas Tree and listened to the children’s desires for Christmas. The children left with a candy cane, a gift, and a smile! As an added treat, the Caledonia Fire Department came back after their call and enjoyed some time with Santa and the kids, too! It was a fun evening for everyone! If you haven’t done so already, please stop by the Lighthouse and see the decorations and lights. It’s beautiful!
President McCulloch would like to thank Sherry Heck for ensuring that we continue with this Wind Point tradition and coordinating this event for our community.
The Wind Point Community Club is looking for help from other community-minded Wind Point residents to assist with organizing and working events, such as the Holiday Party and Wreath Lighting. We would also like to bring back the Annual Village Picnic, Children’s 4th of July Bike Parade, and add some other community events. It’s a great way to meet neighbors and serve the community! Our community makeup is changing and some of our members who have volunteered in the past are no longer able to. We would love to have new members! Please contact Sherry Heck at 262-639-5370 or [email protected] for more information.
