Welcome to Milwaukee County and all we have to offer. I hope you and your families enjoy our beautiful city, county and state this month. As Milwaukee County Executive, I invite you to share in all the amazing things our county offers; from the Milwaukee County Zoo to the world-class Milwaukee Art Museum. Milwaukee County offers countless festivals and activi- ties. This month you can catch our Milwaukee Brewers in action at Miller Park or visit the Indian Summer Festival (Sept. 7-9) at Henry W. Maier Festival Park. In addition, the Rock the Green Music Festival is playing at Veteran's Park on Saturday, Sept. 15. As the weather turns cooler, September is also a great time to enjoy our award winning Milwaukee County golf courses or go for a bike ride on the wonderful Oak Leaf Trail that winds from the Lakefront through Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. Please enjoy what Milwaukee County has to offer. You, your family and friends will be glad you did. Sincerely, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele Tom Barrett, Mayor Milwaukee's change of seasons can be dramatic. From our hot summer, through temperate fall and brisk winter, the most reli- able forecast is that our weather will change. In Milwaukee, we embrace change – and not just in the weather. Our skyline has grown in recent years as new residen- tial buildings have been constructed. That is part of a change in housing patterns that has brought more and more people to downtown Milwaukee. Visitors to Milwaukee are finding a wider variety of options as new restaurants, new hotels, and new attractions are added. Our industries have evolved over the years. While we still brew beer in Milwaukee, we are now home to high- ly advanced manufacturing, businesses producing green energy components and a burgeoning water technology sector. The demographic makeup of Milwaukee has changed as members of different immigrant groups have chosen to make this city their home. One thing I'm confident will never change is the hardworking and friendly char- acter of our residents. Sincerely,
