SuperValu Market Developer Discusses Grocery Store Feasibilty

WABENO—The monthly meeting of the Friends of Wabeno will be August 27th, 7pm at the Town Hall.  Tom Branta, SuperValu Market Developer, will present the first phase of his grocery store feasibility study and discuss potential options for getting a grocery store in town.

Following the grocery store discussion, there will be updates on the North Branch Oconto River Barrier Free Boardwalk and Trail, the Wabeno Lumberjack Trail, the Scenic Byways Designation and Friends fundraising events..

Volunteer carpenters and workers are needed to help construct the boardwalks in September. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mary Beck (608) 628-0757,  or Kevin Podjaski at 920-213-5886. Better yet come to the meeting on the 27th to view the boardwalk plans.

This first phase of the North Branch of the Oconto River Barrier Free Boardwalk is made possible by the generous support of these private foundations; Christopher Reeve Foundation, Wisconsin Public Service Foundation, Plum Creek Timber Foundation and the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation plus the invaluable support of community volunteers, town highway department and the Blackwell Job Corps.

Come lend your voice and talents to your community. The Friends of Wabeno meetings are open meetings and as always, all residents, business owners, and elected officials of Wabeno, Carter, Blackwell and Freedom are invited to the meetings.
