Green Lake Fitness 24/7: Thanks to your support, fitness members 55 and over get a deal! $20 per month. Right at the age when you start asking yourself, "Who stole my body and replaced it with this old person?" ...it's Green Lake Renewal donors to the rescue! Hooray!

Mill Pond Terrace: You really came forward to create this ambitious project. Wowie! After approval early this year of a professionally-created plan, and a series of meetings with a wide variety of Green Lake area contractors, Mill Pond Terrace is slated to break ground in May (weather permitting). This is A MAJOR downtown Green Lake physical improvement, providing space for entrepreneurs, food trucks, events and public gatherings, transforming the underused and aging parking lots to the north of Town Square into a valuable community asset. 

Entrepreneurship: This is the big one, folks. People from all over the area, including Fond du Lac, Oshkosh and the Fox Valley are signing up for Green Lake Renewal's first annual Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, featuring Appirio co-founder Chris Barbin as keynote speaker. We will be launching a major entrepreneurship support initiative at this event, with top-tier mentors, classes and a new business center at Town Square.
