Shawano County Fair Still On
2020 Shawano County Fair update:
In a Board meeting last night, it was decided, as of 6/15/20, the we will be going forward with the Shawano County fair as planned, September 2nd through the 7th!!!! We are working with the IAFE, our Carnival, and Local officials on what we can and can't do amid COVID-19 and will put procedures in place to run it as safely and effectively as possible. The 2020 Fair will have a different look, as We know we will not be allowed to do Bingo for sure, and we will be highlighting our local bands on both stages at this point ... We will be calling our vendors and meeting with our non profits organizations in the upcoming weeks to get their feelings toward opening their stands for the fair. Safety is our prime concern, and we want to talk with all parties involved in this process. We feel after getting all the input for various officials and organizations, we can put a plan together to open effectively, and safely... While things obviously are changing daily, we are always monitoring the situation and will make changes accordingly if something would arise.. It will be a process to get it all done, but we feel we owe it to Shawano County, the Non-Profits who's bigger fundraiser every year is the Fair, and the kids showing animals and exhibits to at least try to give you all the fair you deserve, and continue the tradition of being the World's Fair!!!! See you at the 2020 Shawano County Fair, September 2nd through the 7th!!!

One Killed in Motorcycle Crash
BEAR CREEK - The local community is mourning the loss of a Bear Creek woman who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident over the weekend.
Dora Stilen, 50, of Bear Creek, was a passenger on the motorcycle and was fatally injured when the vehicle struck a deer.
According to the Price County Sheriff’s Department, the accident occurred on Highway 182 on Camp 9 Road in the Township of Eisenstein at 4:13 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. The motorcycle was headed eastbound when it struck the deer.
The 50-year-old male Bear Creek driver was transported to Flambeau Hospital in Park Falls for his injuries.
Stilen grew up in New London and moved to Bear Creek with her husband Jody in the late 80s and have lived there ever since. She was a longtime hairdresser and a beloved secretary at Clintonville Middle School. Friends and family are remembering her generous heart, kind spirit, and contagious smile.
A visitation has been scheduled this Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church in Bear Creek.
Our deepest condolences to the Stilen family.
Share memories & support the family

No blue green algae was located and there was not a direct link as to what may have created this situation last night involving the dog. Information is being forwarded to the state with pictures and samples and we hope to get a direction from the state early next week as to when the pond may reopen. At this time we are going to continue leave the pond closed to the public and err on the side of caution. If you have any questions please contact our non-emergency number 715-754-5060.

Clintonville Firemen’s Festival Canceled
CFA is saddened to announce the need to cancel our annual festival for 2020 due to uncertainty with COVID-19. Organizing and preparing an event to this scale requires financial decisions we simply aren’t prepared to make at this time and asking our burdened local business to contribute to the event doesn’t seem appropriate as they struggle to get back in operation. We have always enjoyed the opportunity to bring the community together and we must act in that spirit by considering the health and well being by the reduction of large social gatherings. We will continue to meet as an organization and look to see if we can still provide a safe alternative such as the Friday Fish Fry in an altered method such as our spring alternative “drive thru” which was a great success due to those that came out to support the event.
We are ever thank you for all the past and current support we receive as our organization continues to focus effort to assist CFD and ultimately to you our community in return.
Stay safe and healthy, and let’s all do our part to continue to support business and non profits of Clintonville! #strongertogether
Here’s something to make you smile...
Customers and employees of a Clintonville gas station were amused by a tree frog on Wednesday, as it made itself comfortable on the outside door handle. We’re told that it went for a ride several times as customers pushed the exit door open. It finally gave up on the handle and scaled the window instead.

Clintonville Fireworks Canceled
From the Mayor:
4th of July Fireworks Show is Cancelled
Friends and neighbors, today I have the sad responsibility of informing you that Clintonville’s 4th of July fireworks show will be cancelled this year. Yesterday, I met with the committee chairman of the Clintonville A’s which organizes the event and it was our shared consensus that the celebration was simply not feasible this July.
This probably does not come as a great surprise to many of you, but it is a disappointment none-the-less. The past months have been trying and we all are beyond ready to get back to normal life. Each month seems to bring a new crisis and a mid-summer night of food, laughter, and fireworks under the stars seems like the perfect relief. Unfortunately, we are just not there yet.
I do want the community to know that this decision was not made simply because our blankets and lawn chairs might not be quite six feet apart. The annual fireworks show requires a great deal of preparation and coordination that could not happen because of COVID-19. Additionally, some of the necessary arrangements for the event itself, like food sales and public restrooms, pose too great a risk to the public health for us to allow. Lastly, the fireworks show is funded entirely by donations, and as much as we value our community events, the event organizers did not want to ask our local businesses for funds when they have already had to sacrifice so much.
As much as it hurts, neither the City nor the Clintonville A’s could envision a scenario in which we could hold this event. I ask, as your mayor and your neighbor, that you do your best to keep your collective chin up, as I will. This will eventually pass and when it does, we will make up for lost time. In the meantime, take a long, slow, breath, take a walk downtown, visit our local businesses responsibly, and enjoy the Summer sun.
