LETTER: More than 1,000 rendezvoused at historic Saukville Crossroads

 

Despite challenging weather, the second annual Crossroads Rendezvous Historical Re-enactment on May 17-19 was a success. Over 500 students from area schools, including Saukville Elementary, visited the encampment at Saukville’s Peninsula Park on the event’s Friday school day and saw historic trades such as blacksmithing and woodworking up close and personal, and were able to try their hand at weaving, 18th-century games, French and British military drills and much more.  

Over the course of the event, we had over 1,000 visitors, and funds were raised for both the Saukville Area Historical Society and Boy Scout Troop 840 of Grafton, which provided food for the event.

The Saukville Area Historical Society and the Crossroads Rendezvous Organizing Committee would like to thank our business sponsors—Port Washington State Bank, FPZ, Inc, Backwoods Tin & Copper, U-Haul Moving and Storage, Mueller Heating & Cooling, The Paperie, Rivers Edge restaurant and Equipment Rentals and Saukville Feed Supplies—and the Saukville Chamber of Commerce, which provided a tourism grant.

The Crossroads Rendezvous will return to Peninsula Park on the third weekend of May in 2020. For more information, go to www.CrossroadsRendezvous.org or visit our Facebook Page.
