More Dates to Save & Savor: 13th Annual Kohler Food & Wine Experience Later this year‚ thousands of wine glasses will be raised at the 13th annual Kohler Food & Wine Experience (October 17-20). Wine enthusiasts are invited to enjoy food‚ wine, spirits and fun as the resort hosts celebrity chefs‚ regional restaurateurs, mixologists and winemakers for a four-day exposé of culinary, wine and spirits. Cheers! More event details‚ tickets and hotel packages available soon.

On April 13, a group of culinary writers, travel writers, freelancers, and other media members were treated to a day of memorable meals, sweet morsels, and a “Kohlernary” tour of the Kitchens of Kohler. The day began with lunch in The Wisconsin Room alongside farmers from the region who provide Kohler with the freshest of fresh foods, including representatives from Fox Valley Berkshire Pork, LaClare Farms Cheese, and Trusted Earth Farm and Forage. Executive Chef Rick Boyer and Wisconsin Room Chef Alex Glass also spoke about offerings at The American Club Resort. Media members were then shuttled to the Craverie for chocolates and wine and a chance to pose questions to Kohler Original Recipe Chocolate chocolatier Anette Righi and Mixologist Jason Van Auken. Righi said plans are in the works for a new line of

chocolates to be introduced before next winter’s holiday season. She spoke of Herbert Kohler’s passion for chocolate, and possible expansion of the business, including a separate building for making the chocolates if the need arises. (This prompted one of the culinary writers to ask if Kohler plans to have its own version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory!) Righi said the ultimate goal would be for Kohler to own its own cocoa bean plantation, but that would probably be 20 years down the road. The group then returned to The American Club for a behind the scenes tour of the kitchens and laundry room, led by Director of Hotels Christine Loose. The highlight was the chance to observe The American Club’s chefs, Kris Burns and John Vollmar, preparing sweets, and to take a look at the huge machine that cleans all the resort’s towels and linens. After a break, the group returned for a Horse & Plow grand opening celebration, where Chef Loren Rue and Anello Mollica of Central Waters Brewing Company took questions and served up drinks and appetizers. The evening was capped off with an intimate sweets and cheese reception at the Winery Bar.

In the classroom, teens will learn the physics and dynamics of good driving, including collision avoidance and skid control.

side. Students enjoy classroom sessions, skill drills, and expert private instruction. Students participating in the driving school may use their own street-legal cars or one of The Road America Driving School (RADS) official cars.

New Squad: You may have seen our new squad over the last several weeks. It stands out because it is an SUV. Over the last decade, we have purchased only Ford Crown Victorias every year except one (Charger in 2008). The Crown Victoria was the largest police sedan made, which was needed due to the amount of equipment for patrol and as First Responders. Production of the Crown Victoria was discontinued,

leaving smaller sedans or SUVs as the only options. The Ford Explorer we purchased is All-wheel drive, and was not much more than the smaller sedan. This vehicle won’t require snow tires, etc. and should have a higher resale value than the sedans also. You will probably see more and more of these on patrol with other agencies, who are in the same predicament.

Public Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof Holiday Garbage Pickup: Due to the Memorial Day Holiday, garbage pickup for Tuesday, May 28th will be delayed to Wednesday, May 29th.

May 24 is snow make-up day May 24 will be the day Kohler Schools students make up a day of school that was missed due to a February 27 snowstorm.

Kohler students testing the waters The TTW science enrichment program allowed students to participate in a community service project which encouraged them to employ both biology and chemistry skills. Students actively shared in data collecting, analyzing, and interpreting biology and chemistry data related to the water quality of the Sheboygan River. Kohler students tested a site along the river near Black Wolf Run Golf Course. Students from the county experienced the scope of the Sheboygan River Watershed via a bus tour at the beginning of the school year. This year we worked with the Great Lakes Area of Concern Program, along with

Camp Y-Coda, the DNR, and UWSheboygan water quality extension. Water quality specialists explained the many facets of the watershed with stops at many locations along the tour, and explained the dredging of the PCB’s. The area schools then gathered to be trained on how to accurately conduct each of the tests. Some of the tests included dissolved oxygen, BOD, pH, temperature, total phosphates, nitrates, turbidity, total solids, fecal coliform, and macroinvertebrates. The data collection portion of the program provided students an opportunity to conduct water quality tests and accurately report data. The Kohler

group also presented a program for the 8th graders, participated in a canoe trip, and went on a snow shoe hike along the river. On Earth Day, April 22, 2013, students attended a watershed county Symposium. Students from ten schools throughout the county researched and discussed the human impacts, both positive and negative, and analyzed the river data from upstream to downstream. Along with sharing and presenting the data, students suggested explanations for their findings, and worked together to explore possible action plans that might have a positive impact on the area’s land conservation and the environment.

Congratulations to the following team members for all of your efforts! 2012-2013 TTW members: Seniors: Katie Anderson, Cole Brock, Courtney Gmach, Karianna Heins, Madeline Heun, Connor Hogan, Madeline Kelly, Abby Lee, Sarah Leick, Tyler Lewis, Rachel Maggi, Molly Misfeldt, Kitty O’Neill, Nick Pfrang, Greg Suralik, Thomas Sutherland, Nate Tures, Katelyn Van Treeck, Login Willis, Kelsey Wright, Sydney Yang, Sophomores: Megan Conklin, Ben Madigan.

providing guests with a special greeted arrival from the front desk staff. The renovated historic building continues to serve as a brilliant showcase of the company’s plumbing and interiors products and as a resort destination for the discerning traveler who seeks the finest in hotel surroundings, amenities and service. “The Carriage House offers a truly memorable experience for our guests,” says Christine Loose, Director of Hotels for Kohler Co. “From the new entrance to the renovated rooms, every part of the experience has been enhanced and elevated. Many of our Carriage House guests rarely leave the building and are able to have the ultimate relaxing getaway while enjoying the spa’s relaxation pool, roof-top deck and fireplaces.” With a nod to the history of the unique building, each room of The Carriage House is named after a famous carriage or carriage manufacturer. The décor is on par with the major renovation at The American Club hotel, incorporating dark wood accents, elegant furnishings and rich colored draperies. Furthermore, 12 rooms of the rooms include Mark David trunks near the bedside as a nod to the interior of a historic carriage. The guest room renovation incorporates plumbing, furniture and tile products from Kohler Co.’s diverse product portfolio. The products are incorporated from the

following brands: KOHLER, Kallista, Baker, Mark David, McGuire, Ann Sacks and Robern. Just as in The American Club, The Carriage House rooms include a porcelain Karner Butterfly, made at the Kohler factory across the street. “This butterfly is a unique way for the guest to communicate to the housekeeping staff if they desire fresh linens,” said Loose. “We choose the Karner Blue Butterfly because of its special story in Wisconsin. This particular species was endangered but is now flourishing in the State of Wisconsin. This is our way of helping tell that success story through our conservation efforts.” The company is continually renovating the hotel and its properties to provide Five-Star amenities and the latest Kohler Co. products. This cycle of hotel renovations began in December 2009 and is complete with The Carriage House reopening this May. This renovation follows the recent on-property enhancements of the Kohler Waters Spa, Cucina Italian Restaurant, Sports Core Health & Racquet Club, Inn on Woodlake and Horse & Plow.
