Another year gone – I can hardly believe it, but here we are celebrating New Year’s Eve. Lake Country Family Fun has been doing some reflecting as one does at this time of the year. It has been a year of amazing growth for Lake Country Family Fun, and we could not be more happy.
In January 2019, Lake Country Family Fun birthed a side venture, Lake Country Currents. Lake Country Currents is the birth child of an Instagram Friday Follow series come to life. We love meeting with fellow Lake Country entrepreneurs, creatives and bloggers. You can follow LCC on Facebook HERE, and we’d love to have you join us in person!
The Lake Country Family Fun Team
The Lake Country Family Fun team has seen changes over 2019. Madi left to follow her passion of being a foster parent, but she came back to help us out with Hartland Kids Day and our Holiday Instagram Challenge 2019. She’s since moved out of Lake Country, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still see her pop up helping us out. Madi lives near and dear to our hearts ❤️
Megan joined us in December 2018, and we are so happy to have her with us for the past year. Megan has written some articles and made sure that our events have gone off without a hitch! She has planned the logistics for our Lake Country Currents events, our 8th Birthday Bash, and our second annual Swim with a Mermaid. We could not have pulled any of these fun events off without Megan!
Stephanie continues to run our sales at Lake Country Family Fun, ensuring the lights stay on so we can keep bringing you all the family fun at your fingertips for FREE! She loves writing some of our most popular guides, too.
You might have noticed a fresh face on our Instagram from July through October and that would be Heather. Heather was instrumental in giving our Instagram the kick it needed and a fresh look. Pop over and follow Heather on her Instagram page HERE.
Martha part-time blogged at Lake Country Family Fun in 2019, and we love the wisdom she brings us in her writing.
Lake Country Family Fun had another guest contributor series written by Jann Fujimoto, who chronicled her visit to ALL of the Waukesha County Libraries in summer 2019. You can read them here. Jann has also started writing a series, reviewing our favorite local coffee shops. Don’t miss this one!
Plus, we had additional guest bloggers. Lindsey wrote about being a parent with Type 1 Diabetes. Maria wrote about 9 organizing tips with your children. Lydia gave a review of what she really thinks about the Crafty Cow. And Sarah gave us 6 reasons to love Mukwonago.
I am so inspired and encouraged to know these amazing women and for you to follow along on all of the different journeys they take. They all bring a different style to Lake Country Family Fun, and I cannot wait to enjoy them more in 2020.
And then there’s me. I’m still here! I love running Lake Country Family Fun and engaging with readers on and offline. Thank you ALL for your support!
Lake Country Family Fun Events
As mentioned above, we added quite a few events this year. First there’s our monthly Lake Country Currents events. Then we threw an amazingly fun 8th Birthday Bash for ourselves in April at the Delafield Brewhaus. Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with us!
In July, we had another successful HARTLAND KIDS DAY. It was our biggest event yet! We had local celebrities and partnered with FM 106.1. Plus, a shuttle to ease parking. Stay tuned for the 2020 date!
Lastly, we hosted our second annual Swim with a Mermaid at Goldfish Swim School in September. Thank you to all the little mermaids who came to swim with our real life mermaids!
