Resident's Story Told

Gordon Raddatz featured

July 24, 2015

Evergreen resident Gordon Raddatz grew up on a dairy farm in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and eventually took over the family milk supply business. His story was featured in the "Extra" July, 2015 edition of Reminisce magazine.

During an interview conducted by his son Wesley Raddatz, Gordon reminisced about his days on the farm and how a "milk strike pitted neighbor against neighbor and friend against friend" during the Great Depression. Gordon spent 70 years in the dairy business and "graduated from riding cows to running his own truck route ... supplying milk to the White House Milk Company and A&P food stores nationwide."

Congratulations Gordon on a long and successful career, and thank you for taking the time to share your story with readers of Reminisce!

Evergreen has a new partnership with Spellman's Marina. Residents who own a boat will now be able to dock or store their craft for a discounted rate at the near-by marina. Spellman's is located on the Fox River just across the Oshkosh Avenue bridge.

And Evergreen will provide free transportation back and forth between our campus and the marina.

So bring your boat and enjoy the local waterways!

Bird Watching at Evergreen

Evergreen Grounds Coordinator Chris Bellin snapped this great shot of a house wren making its nest in one of the bird houses located in the Evergreen Oak Savanna woodlands - it's a great place to bird watch!

Chris is not only a Master Gardener, but also an Avid Birder. In fact, he writes a monthly column titled "For the Birds" in Badger Sportsman magazine about the habits of birds he has observed and photographed in many locations including our Evergreen campus. His most recent article featured cardinals and the upcoming one will focus on house wrens such as this one who has made a home in one of many birdhouses built by Evergreen residents.

String Quartets

Performance at Evergreen

July 13, 2015

What an absolute pleasure - two string quartets from the Green Lake Music Festival presenting an impressive concert at Evergreen this afternoon!

The Chapel and Fireside Lounge were filled with an appreciative audience of residents and friends who came to enjoy but were wowed beyond their expectations. These eight young people not only played, but communicated through body movements and facial expressions as they got lost in their own music.

A joy to experience!
