6 The people of Milwaukee love to celebrate. We celebrate our ethnicities, our sports teams, the arts, growing businesses and we especially celebrate our families. A new trend celebrates the future, encouraging those who will define our future. Groups such as NEWaukee and Fuel Milwaukee channel the energy of early-career professionals. They attract young talent and work to fulfill social, volunteer, and professional interests. They are powerful forces in our civic life. NEWaukee calls itself a social architecture firm, offer- ing direction and structure in order to make our com- munity greater. Fuel Milwaukee focuses on engage- ment, adding dimensions to the lives of young profes- sionals. Among young people here, the level of enthusiasm, involvement, and action has surpassed any I have seen before. Sincerely, Tom Barrett, Mayor Harvest seasons are traditionally times of celebration in Midwest towns, with concerts, dances, sports, and of course, rich food and drink. Milwaukee celebrates its culture with Indian Summer Festival, one of the country's premier events for celebrating Native American culture. And of course, Oktoberfest celebra- tions remind us this month why Milwaukee is known as the German Athens of America. Various harvest festivals, farmer's markets, and orchards are open this month. Special events include the Outdoor Urban Market and Harvest Fair. Concerts, musicals, and art festivals add music and color to the parks and neighborhoods.
