Welcome to Milwaukee County. Welcome to Milwaukee County. As Milwaukee County Executive, I invite you to share the unequaled opportunities our county offers this and every win- ter for family activities and music, especially in our National Gold MedalWinning Park System. The county offers many family-friendly winter activities such as tobogganing and sledding. There are also sev- eral places to ice skate in the county, including down- town's Red Arrow Park, which is open to the public seven days a week. As featured in this issue of KEY Milwaukee, the Mitchell Park Domes have a lot to offer this winter sea- son, including Music Under Glass, which continues this month on every Thursday. Please make sure to enjoy what Milwaukee County has to offer. You, your family and friends will be glad you did. Sincerely, Chris Abele Milwaukee County Executive Tom Barrett, Mayor When the weather cools in Milwaukee, there are plenty of ways to stay warm and continue to enjoy the great things that are part of our city's winter season. The performing arts remain active in the winter at a wide range of venues including the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, the Pabst Theater, the Milwaukee Theatre, and the Broadway Theater. From music to drama, you'll find a rewarding diversion and a cozy seat. Cultural institutions, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, DiscoveryWorld and the Milwaukee Public Museum are all wonderful destinations. Their collec- tions and activities provide an escape from cold-weather boredom. Our professional sports teams offer lots of opportuni- ties to cheer whether you're a basketball, soccer, or hockey fan. And college basketball energizes down- town Milwaukee with Marquette University and University ofWisconsin-Milwaukee contests. If you're really ambitious, get outside to enjoy skating or a stroll along the lakefront. You will find Milwaukee is never too cold to have fun. Sincerely,
