For our first Leadership Kenosha meeting after our retreat, we spent most of the day at Circa on Seventh. The first activity of the morning was to set ground rules for how our group would approach our work with each other. First and foremost, we agreed to be respectful – respectful of each other’s ideas, to listen, to be honest, and to be inclusive, among other things. For a group of people who were strangers just one month ago and who all bring different strengths and styles of working, it will be important to remember the ground rules when we get into the nitty gritty of our projects.
Next, we had Alexandria Binanti Robinson from Downtown Kenosha Inc. (DKI) talk to us about DKI’s vision and current initiatives for downtown Kenosha. She spoke about the business vacancy rate downtown and DKI’s goal to support new local businesses to decrease the vacancy rate. It was really cool to learn more about the building restoration and preservation projects they’ve been involved with. (more…)

Venturing out on this Leadership Kenosha retreat was an amazing experience. Sessions and speakers of the retreat were intentionally designed for us to enhance and develop leadership skills while also getting to know each other and building trust as a team! We did that! What an exhilarating time we had participating in the low and high ropes courses, bonding together as a team, all while keeping true to our “Real Colors” of blue, green, orange or gold. It was both fun and intriguing to use the (NCTI) National Curriculum & Training Institutes “Real Colors” Personality Instrument. After spending time with each other and seeing who ended up where with the “Real Colors” scoring was fun and eye opening. In the end, we challenged ourselves mentally and physically, honing in on and strengthening our leadership skills. Leadership Kenosha 2020! Forward lead! We are ready!
Today we had the honor of meeting the new owners of Captain Mike’s, Mick & Jeanette Kelly, and kick off their Block Party Celebration with a Ribbon Cutting. They did exterior and interior upgrades and renovations including a cool, geometric wood inlay in the floor and beautiful new window boxes.
Come drink with the Captain! Captain Mike’s offer a great selection of craft beers, ciders, whiskeys and gin. They specialize in great burgers and Mac and Cheese and if you can’t choose from their menu, you can always build your own. They have Bingo every Monday, Trivia every Tuesday, serve Fresh Oysters on Wednesdays during summer and have Open Mic every Sunday. For great food, great drink and great entertainment, look no further than Captain Mike’s.
