UFO Days - Elmwood, WI - Last full weekend every July

UFO Days - Elmwood, WI - Last full weekend every July

It is with a heavy heart that we are cancelling our 2020 UFO Days celebration. We believe with the current COVID-19 situation and civil unrest it is in the best interest and safety for our community to cancel this years' events.

Videos of coronation and our Grand Marshalls will be shown closer to the weekend UFO Days would have taken place. Buttons and t-shirts will be sold. A photo of the winning design will be posted this weekend. Contact here for purchases for the time being but hope to have posted dates for sales at the businesses but need to be determined yet.

Thank you for your understanding.

Crain-Ottman American Legion Post 207, Elmwood, WI

Light a candle at dusk on Memorial Day to pay tribute to the fallen Veterans. Details below.

From National Commander: Memorial Day, for most of us, will be different this year. The meaning, however, does not change. I’m calling on The American Legion Family to encourage communities far and wide to pay tribute to our nation’s fallen heroes at dusk May25, Memorial Day, by lighting candles of honor and placing them on front porches.
Color options for consideration could include:
* A red candle to remember the bloodshed in the battle for the
protection of our freedoms.
* A white candle to keep our POWs/MIAs ever in our thoughts
and prayers as we await their return home
* A blue candle to salute the memories of those who made it
home but are no longer with us.
An additional option is to show your gratitude by having each member of a family or group hold up a sign spelling out a message of Memorial Day. WE SHALL NEVER FORGET.

Happy 50th class reunion to the class of 1970! https://www.facebook.com/pg/ELMWOODWIHISTORY/photos/?tab=album&album_id=533431636792468

1970 Music continues to make significant impact with the largest ever rock festival held on the Isle of Wight with 600,000 people attending, including some of the biggest name in music including Jimi Hendrix and The Who. This is also the year The Concord makes it's first supersonic flight. Another significant change is the age of voting is now lowered to 18 in the US. Gas was 36 Cents / gallon; Average income $9,400.

Heads up Elmwood

An Elmwood resident suggested this. We have a few days to make our little town festive. Since the egg hunt is cancelled at the park why not celebrate as best as we can!

So much fun...those were the days my friend!

So much fun...those were the days my friend!

15 years ago these ladies ventured out to Nana's Cottage in Chetek where Nana transformed them into these "dolls" with clothes from Nana's closet. They then enjoyed a proper English tea. New names were assigned to everyone as well and lots of memories were made.

I was in the Elmwood area on Monday. I have always wanted to drive my ATV down Bell Hill, I have never been on this road. I made a video to share with you. I know many of you are running out of things to do, so if you are looking for something to do check out my video. In the video playback screen, select the GEAR icon then select QUALITY, HD for playback OR whatever is best for your Internet connection.
Help me remember my high school years, was this the entrance to Egg Tunnel?
This photo is on file at the Pierce County Historical Association. It's labeled "Packing Butter - Elmwood Creamery". Anyone know who they are?
Does anyone in this group know anything about Featherstone? Featherstone was sawmill siding on the west side of Elmwood. Here is a map I made from an official railroad drawing. Thanks. Arlyn Colby, [email protected]
For the railroad books that I write, I include a chapter about each town on the line. The chapter includes a short history of the town, the railroad operations in that town, a track map, and pictures. Does anyone in this group have a history of Elmwood or know where I can get one?? Here is a pencil sketch of Elmwood that was in the Spring Valley newspaper, Feb. 13, 1902. Thanks!! Arlyn Colby, [email protected], www.wisconsinrailroadbooks.com
As I have posted previously, I am writing a book about the railroad that ran through Elmwood, from Woodville to Weston. Lots in Elmwood were sold at an auction on February 27, 1902. At the time, the only buildings that existed were the train depot and the elevator. A newspaper article said that Old Elmwood and West Elmwood were not in sight, being about a mile away. Anyone know where Old Elmwood and West Elmwood were located?? Anyone having information or pictures for this book, please contact me at [email protected], website wisconsinrailroadbooks.com

Thank you to Hugh Mulheron for allowing me to travel on his land to explore the cave so many children from the past have played in. Check out the fun video I made from my trip today.
Good morning. My dad, Dutch, talked about playing in the caves as a kid on Mulheran’s land by Farm Hill/Boot Hill. Does anyone know about theses caves? Who owns the land now? Could I get permission to look for them? Let me know. Thanks
A little late notice, but I am presenting a picture show about area railroads at the Plum City Library tonight, May 8, at 7 PM. All are welcome to attend, and it's free! My next railroad history book will be about the Spring Valley Line and the Ellsworth Line. The Spring Valley line extended from Woodville to Spring Valley, Elmwood, Comfort, and Weston. I am looking for information and pictures about these lines (especially pictures of Comfort!) If you have any material that would help me, please contact Arlyn Colby, 427 Pine Street, Barron, WI 54812. email [email protected], website: wisconsinrailroadbooks.com
Not really sure when things become historical but these are some photos of my coaching days with UW River Falls / Kansas City. I never thought it would be but helping out the Wolves this fall was really emotional for me. It was really great to be on the Raider Field sideline again.
Hi Elmwood Historical Friends! Attached are pics of a postcard I just got from a dealer in San Francisco. Caption is "Main Street Looking North".... Its dated Nov of 1910. Wondering if anyone knows who JRB is, which is the sender of the card.
