Santa Claus visited Cross Plains on Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Cross Plains-Berry Fire Station,
1501 Bourbon Rd. Organizers worked with Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM) and other
local groups to distribute contributions to those in the community who are in need this holiday
season. The event was held with assistance from the Cross Plains Chamber of Commerce. See

Christmas comes to the Village of Cross Plains

Event brings in 160 pounds of food for Middleton Outreach Ministry

Photos by Dennis Semrau

We had an amazing turnout for the Santa Visit, reported organizer Karen Semrau following Santas visit to Cross Plains on December 2. I don't believe we ever had a break in the line from
the moment Santa arrived on the fire truck, courtesy of the Cross Plains Berry Fire Department. The wonderful weather brought out children of all ages, from babies snuggled in parents arms,
to older siblings encouraging their younger brothers and sisters to whisper their wishes in Santa's ear. The weather also permitted the Lions Club to run their train through the parking lot, which
is also always a huge hit with the children.
Organizers took in generous donations from more than 70 individuals, businesses and organizations, from contributions for the goodie bags each child received, to door prizes and cash
donations and discounts. We also had a great group of volunteers, without whom we couldnt have pulled off such a terrific event, added Semrau. The ornaments you can see hanging behind
Santa in one of the pictures were all handmade by the children at Sandcastles Daycare, Little Cardinals Academy, the Park School KidSafe Program, and residents at Milestone Senior Living.
Our Santa Visit included a giving effort, with a request to visiting families to bring a non-perishable food donation or a cash donation, which we collected in coordination with Middleton Outreach
Ministry (MOM) as we have done in past years. When it was all over, they delivered 156 items - thats 160 pounds of food - and $110.00 to MOM after the event.

Drive Sober campaign announced in Middleton

Alcohol grant deployments in Dane County will begin Friday
The Dane County Sheriffs Office, the Middleton Police
Department, the Madison Police Department, and other po-
lice agencies throughout the county will join together Decem-
ber 15 31 to participate in the statewide Drive Sober or
Get Pulled Over campaign. The collaboration was an-
nounced Tuesday at the Middleton Police Department on
Donna Drive, where law enforcements representatives from
several agencies were on hand to talk about the initiative.
Rather than risk a drunken driving arrest or crash, the
Dane County Sheriffs Office urges you to follow these com-
mon sense suggestions: Choose a sober designated driver be-
fore you start drinking; If youre feeling buzzed, you likely
are over the 0.08 BAC limit and should not drive; Take a bus,
a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home; Many tav-
erns and restaurants have programs to provide patrons a
safe ride home; Help in law enforcement efforts by reporting
suspected impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling
Alcohol grant deployments are scheduled for this Friday
and Saturday. These overtime efforts are funded by the Wis-
consin Department of Transportation, Bureau of Trans-
portation Safety. During December of 2016s OWI grant
enforcement efforts, seven impaired drivers were arrested.
As you celebrate this holiday season, please remember
that law enforcement will be out in force to arrest impaired
drivers before they kill or injure themselves or an innocent
victim, said Sheriff Dave Mahoney.
