Trick or Treat

Thiensville Trick-or-Treat
is 3-6 p.m. this Sunday

Trick or Treat will take place in Thiensville this Sunday, Oct. 27, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition to the annual scramble for candy by little ghosts and goblins, members of the Thiensville Fire Department will drive around the village on a fire truck. They'll hand out candy and take donations for food and other household items that will be donated to an area food pantry.

Last year, firefighters collected nearly a half a ton of canned goods, boxes of mac 'n cheese and other items.

In addition to making donations to the firefighters that afternoon, residents also may bring items to the Thiensville Fire Department, 250 Elm St., in the days just before and after Truck-or-Treat.

Das Klean Out-2

Shredding and prescription take-back event planned for Saturday, Oct. 26

As part of national Drug Take Back Day, the village of Thiensville and Port Washington State Bank will conduct an Oktoberfest-themed event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 26, at PWSB's Thiensville branch, 197 S. Main St.

Das Klean Out will provide an opportunity for area residents to safely dispose of expired or unneeded prescription drugs. A truck also will be on-site to provide an opportunity for residents to shred sensitive documents.

The event will offer free food, live polka music and crafting activities for children. The Lakeshore Chinooks and team mascot Gill will provide volunteer support. The Thiensville Business Association is a key supporter of the event and will be collecting donations for the planned splash pad in Thiensville's Village Park.

"In April, we collected almost 70 pounds of prescription drugs," said Thiensville Police Chief Curt Kleppin. "Beyond that, it's a fun way to get into the fall spirit."

Thiensville's snowplow drivers
earn environmental certification

All of Thiensville’s Department of Public Works employees, who soon will be plowing snow in the village, recently obtained certification after attending a day-long workshop that presented environmentally-sound practices.

Milwaukee Riverkeeper hosted the event Sept. 19 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences. The five Thiensville DPW employees learned state-of-the-art winter maintenance practices, including how to transition to liquid deicers and how to reduce overall salt application to roads.

After passing an exam, employees Peter Neuman, Rich Ellner, Patrick Williams, Chris DeChant and John Mikyska received certificates for “Smart Salting Level 1 Certification: Snow and Ice Control Best Practices.”

The workshop was part of a larger grant-supported effort by the Fund for Lake Michigan to increase awareness of the impact of winter deicing activities on local waterways. There was no cost to the village to send its snowplow drivers to the workshop.
