Lake Country Currents

Lake Country Currents

We were so inspired by the talent + presence in the Lake Country online community after hearing the community feedback during our Lake Country #FOLLOWFRIDAY series in November 2018 on INSTAGRAM! To keep that momentum going, @LAKECOUNTRYFAMILYFUN launched Lake Country Currents, a networking group for bloggers, influencers, and creatives in the greater Waukesha County area in January 2019.

Lake Country Family Fun proudly presents our event series:

Lake Country Currents

One of Lake Country Family Fun’s main tenets of its MISSION STATEMENT is to build community. Through our event series, we will be hosting a number of get-togethers and meetups for Lake Country and Waukesha County area based bloggers, creatives, and influencers to meet up, share resources, and laugh.

Our first series was such a success: the Coffee Shop Series. As you know, Lake Country Family Fun has published their Local Coffee Shop Guide for the second year in a row now, and we can’t say enough good things about all the local, independently owned coffee shops sprinkled throughout our area. Thank you to Mama D’s, Roots Waukesha, 1863 Coffee Saloon & Cafe, Milwaukee Street Traders, and Cafe La Belle for hosting us.

We are so excited to launch the 2021-2022 season of Lake Country Currents, upon the success of previous seasons. We launched a membership program and you can tap the link below to find all the details on our lineup of successful women leading us in various topics to learn and grow together.

Come along with us as we continually pivot. We can’t wait for you to join, learn, and laugh with us!

    I’m just seeing this coffee connections event. So sad that it’s sold out. I look forward to the next one.
