Parades on July 2
The Independence Day weekend will be different this year. The Cloverleaf Lakes Fireworks group held their last event in 2015. Also, the Art Fair has been cancelled due to low participation numbers.
But Saturday, July 2, will still be a day of celebration, with the popular Kiddie Parade starting at 10 a.m. at the boat landing on Highway Y. And the Pontoon Parade will make its way around Pine and Grass Lakes starting at 6:30 p.m.
Later summer events include a golf outing and a triathlon. Details will be in the summer issue.

Highway Y closes July 11
A portion of County Highway Y at Cloverleaf Lakes will be closed starting Monday, July 11, for replacement of a culvert connecting Grass and Round Lakes.
“Our plan is to close CTH Y at the culvert from Monday, July 11th through Friday July 22nd, pending weather conditions at that time,” said Katie Schwartz, Shawano County Highway Department engineer. “CTH Y will have a posted detour along STH 22.”
The road will be open to local traffic and the boat launch will be open. A new, larger culvert under Highway Y will replace the 50-plus year old culvert. Also, the western shoulder of the road will be paved from Round Lake Park to the Lake Aire to ease pedestrian and bicycle traffic along a dangerous stretch. Shawano County and the Town of Belle Plaine, along with a DNR grant, will fund the project. A grant from the Stockbridge-Munsee Community will help pay for the pedestrian path.
