The final Lights of the Lakes show of 2019 was presented on December 5th at the Wisconsin Club in downtown Milwaukee. The program was sponsored by the Downtown Club, a men’s group that has been meeting at the Wisconsin Club since the 1920s. My presentation was given in the Deutscher Room, one of the private dining rooms there.
The Wisconsin Club downtown facility is described as follows on their web site:
The City Club
Breathtaking and beautiful, and located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, the legendary, one-of-a-kind Mitchell Mansion has been home to our City Club since 1895.
The stunning mansion is an architectural jewel, complete with elaborate hand-carved mahogany woodwork, stained glass, parquet flooring, plaster and inlaid tile, and rich renovations to create a welcoming atmosphere that warmly greets you the moment you walk in the door. It all helps to bring exquisite beauty and an extraordinary social experience to life.
The Deutscher Room & Bar – This stunning setting features an old-world copper fireplace that’s over 100 years old, warm lighting, making it perfect for nearly any occasion.
The Wisconsin Club also has a second location, the Country Club. This is a golf course and clubhouse also located in Milwaukee.
The Deutscher Room, decorated for the holidays, provided an intimate setting for today’s show.
