We have a year full of fun, education and wellness planned! Your membership to Town Square makes a powerful statement in support of the programs and classes offered at your community center.

Local Artist Faye Barber-Schmuhl will be demonstrating her liquid acrylic techniques at a one-day workshop in Town Square Community Center. The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 23 from 10 am to 3 pm. Cost of registration is $75 and is limited to ten people. Participants may sign up online at www.greenlakerenewal.org/.
Over 50 new documentaries will be screened across 3 days, Friday, June 15 thru Sunday, June 17, attracting local and international audiences to Green Lake, WI. They are the stories of vulnerable people, wildlife and ecosystems that are making a comeback, against extraordinary odds. Many films are already gaining attention on the awards circuit, some tipped as serious Oscar and BAFTA contenders. More importantly, the films are inspiring positive changes in public behavior and in political and corporate decisions that are leading to recoveries of endangered wildlife, vulnerable communities, and ecosystems.
Town Square Community Center is excited to host a new summer program and learning experience for children kindergarten through 5th grade: Camp Chocolate. Two sessions will be held for separate age groups: June 12 through 15 for grades k-2, and June 19 through 22 for grades 3-5. The camp will run from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Friday. The price for the program, including materials, is $25 per child.
Green Lake Fitness 24/7, the downtown facility located at Town Square and operated by the non-profit Green Lake Renewal, is offering a special membership of three months for $75 this summer. This deal is only valid for the months of June, July and August. To take advantage of this offer, participants are encouraged to sign up by June 15 at the Town Square community center on 492 Hill St.
This workshop is open to all levels. It does not assume any prior experience or that one will become an artist, but it prepares all to do stronger work in fields that depend upon creative thinking. Participants can expect to learn historical and contemporary life drawing techniques practiced by the greats, using simple materials—pencils, charcoal and erasers—as means of discovery. The $50 registration fee will help offset the cost of hiring a live model and cover materials like artist tape, charcoal sticks, a charcoal pencil kit, and strathmore drawing paper.
Fresh produce, pasture-raised pork, grass-fed beef, farm-fresh eggs, fresh-baked breads, and made-to-order foods are just some of the signature goods being offered at Town Square’s Friday markets this summer. The Market will feature weekly yoga on the lawn with Marla Mockus, bounce houses for kids every first Friday of the month, a weekly beer tent serving local brews from Knuth Brew Company, and more!

After approval early this year of the plan for the new multifunctional space known as Mill Pond Terrace, area contractors began breaking ground Monday, April 30. The first phase of the Mill Pond Terrace project will focus on hardscape, highlighting the center circle overlook as the focal point, and includes excavation, construction of a retaining wall, and the addition of decorative concrete, gravel and electrical.
