The Fall and Winter Activity Guide

HOFFMAN HALL ANNUAL WINTER CRAFT AND GIFT FAIR

Hoffman Hall hosted the annual Winter Craft and Gift Fair on November 29th 2011, with a total of 27 booths featuring items by area crafters and vendors, a bake sale and a lunch stand. Over 700 people attended the event, sponsored by the Prairie du Chien Park and Recreation Department. More than $1,000 was raised for the Hoffman Hall Campaign. A "huge" thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped make the Fair a success.

Over 400 take part in Annual Turkey Trot

The Turkey Trot was held on Thanksgiving Day at Hoffman Hall with approximately 400 in attendance.  The mild temperatures for November contributed to the increase in participants from last year’s event.  The Turkey Trot raised nearly $1200 for Hoffman Hall and a several boxes of food for the Coulee Cap Food Pantry.  Simply was selling coffee and hot chocolate with the proceeds also going to the food pantry. The race was started a little after 9:00 by John Mulrooney.  He was the starter at the first Turkey Trot held in 1980 and at almost every Turkey Trot held since then.  His son, Pat Mulrooney, was one of the organizers of the first Turkey Trot held in Prairie du Chien, and he participated in the 2011 event. 

There was a new route this year that showcased the new Hwy 18 bypass walking path.  Ashley Ericson of the Prairie du Chien Police Department led the way in her squad car.  The participants were directed along the route by volunteers Kevin Aspenson, a UW-LaCrosse student, and Molly Pedretti, a Viterbo University student. 

Aaron Kiefer of Wapakoneta, OH was the first person to cross the finish line with a time of 18:45.  He was in Prairie du Chien with Angela Baker who was back visiting relatives.  The first female finisher was Shea Bierman, a Lancaster, WI native, in a time of 20:06. Ms. Bierman is a graduate of UW-Platteville and was a member of their track team when she was in college. 

Many local businesses and participants donated door prizes for this year’s event.  Prize winners names were drawn during the race, so everyone could get home in time for the Green Bay Packer vs. Detroit Lion football game.  There were so many donations that it took Park and Rec employee Ruth Check Gates with assistance from the Jay and Mary Bebow family almost forty minutes to draw names for all the donated prizes.   Jack Kluesner, the emcee for the past few years, was missed at this years event. 

It was a wonderful way to start Thanksgiving.  The participants were thankful for the good weather, good health and family and friends to share the day with.

Mission Statement

The City of Prairie du Chien Park and Recreation Department's mission statement serves as a means to work towards the community’s needs that the city should be striving to provide quality facilities and offer affordable wholesome recreation and leisure opportunities that enhance the quality of their lives while living in this community.

With over 600 acres of parks and open spaces, a recreation center, indoor and outdoor pool, and an abundance of riverfront activities and events, they all bring people together and add to a sense of civic pride and belonging. As a fully developed community, maintaining and updating park and recreational facilities will preserve the value and popularity of the city’s park system.

The City’s waterfront, farm park, arts, culture, and historical features adds to the meaning of community life and certainly sets this community apart and should continue to be highlighted.
