Somerset Village trustees along with President John Melvin took time out at the start of their Tuesday, March 20 board meeting to recognize SMC ltd. for 28 years of business in the community. SMC ltd. was founded in 1988 and moved to Somerset in 1990. "I will never forget. Four of us came here (in 1990) and now I think, just in Somerset, there are over 600 people. The community has been extremely welcoming. I really appreciate everything the town does. Really the best help we get is so many good, hard-working families here and the kids that come through that system is what we benefit from.
The Village of Hammond Board of Trustees voted unanimously Monday, March 12 to direct Cedar Corporation to explore the potential of the village to successfully apply for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The grant would be used to help pay for upcoming road improvement projects. Should Cedar Corp.'s review support an application by the village, their fee to complete and submit an application on behalf of the village will be $6,500. A grant application seeking funding for construction projects scheduled for 2019 is due by May 22, 2018.
The Milwaukee School of Engineering's Kern Center was the place to be March 2-3 for all things robotic when 47 of Wisconsin's top high school robotics teams gathered to compete for seven World Championship invitations. The Spartans of Somerset High School were well represented sending five teams to compete. After a day of intense competition, two Somerset teams, 9144c Spartan 4.0 and 9144a Spartans 1, were seeded in the top ten.
Perfect weather saw a record crowd attend the St. Patrick's Day Parade last Saturday, March 17, in New Richmond. Complete with a bagpipe band, kilted mayor and St. Patrick himself, the green sea of spectators had plenty to cheer for. After the parade, many audience members stayed to partake of green beer and corned beef and cabbage specials available at a number of the main street establishments. All in all St. Patrick delivered a most memorable March afternoon in New Richmond.
