Foote, Mary Jane Manierre October 27, 1920 to July 29, 2016 Mary Jane Manierre Foote died peacefully on the morning of Friday, July 29. She lived a full life in good health with an abiding love for her family and deep affection for her lifelong home of Milwaukee. Mary Jane was born on October 27, 1920 in Milwaukee. Mary Jane was the beloved and cherished wife for 63 years of Peter Chapin Foote who preceded her in death on March 22, 2005. She was the adored mother of Suzanne (Chris) Hanks, William (Kari) Foote, and Dr. Peter (Dr. Robin Wilson) Foote. Mimi/Granny was a devoted and loving grandmother to 8 grandchildren and 6 great- grandchildren all of whom visited her frequently in her final years. Mary Jane grew up on Farwell Ave and lived comfortably the last 11 years of her life a few blocks away on Prospect Ave at St John's on the Lake. Mary Jane was the youngest of 5 children of inventor George Manierre III and his wife Katharine Newbury Manierre. Her death marks the passing of this generation of the Manierre family. Spending her childhood summers at the family's wonderful summer home in Lake Mills, Mary Jane attended Shorewood High School and Milwaukee Downer College. She met her husband Peter in high school and they were married in June 1941. They moved to Philadelphia for a time during WW II where Peter was based before shipping out to the Pacific with the US Navy. She returned to Milwaukee awaiting his return from the war. Mary Jane and Peter started their family in 1947 first in Shorewood and then Whitefish Bay. During the years raising their family, Mary Jane and Peter were active members of the Town Club, Heiliger Huegel Ski Club and Ephraim Yacht Club. Mary Jane also enjoyed her time at the Woman's Club of Wisconsin following in the footsteps of her mother. Mary Jane was a devoted mother focusing her attention on her 3 children and supporting Peter in his world- wide business travels. She had diverse interests ranging from reading, writing, music and theatre. She was also very active enjoying horseback riding, swimming, skiing and long walks with Peter and their numerous golden retrievers. Having a lifelong interest in and talent for painting, she spent increasing time creating wonderful scenes of home in Wisconsin. Echoing her childhood memories of summer, Mary Jane and Peter built a home on the shores of Lake Michigan in Ephraim where she spent over 45 summers. Ephraim was a frequent inspiration for her paintings which now serve as a living reminder of her passion. Mary Jane was a truly gracious, dignified, elegant, artistic, kind, fun loving, curious, honest, loyal and loving person. She lead a remarkable life touching many and leaving us with sweet memories.

Bluebird Houses on the Prairie

MUHS student Patrick built 3 bluebird nest boxes to be put on the newly planted prairie at HH.
The staff from the Boys & Girls Club of Milwaukee's summer camp, Camp Whitcomb Mason camped out on the top of the hill on June 21st.  They had crystal clear skies and could see for miles.
They had a potato bar and other good stuff.  Everyone enjoyed the HH camping experience. Most slept up top and got some great pictures of the sunset and moon-rise!  
We have a fire ring, firewood and a cooking stand up there for the true camping experience!

PARK CITY, UT (May 17, 2016) – Nine clubs achieved certification this season in the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s (USSA) podium certification process, part of the USSA’s club development program. The clubs were recognized last week at the annual USSA Club Excellence Conference in Park City, UT.

“We had clubs from every one of our regions achieve certification this year,” stated Brian Krill, USSA’s director of sport education. “With five clubs achieving bronze certification, we can see the momentum behind this program and its value to the clubs as they continue to serve their athletes, communities and missions.”

Through the club certification program, the USSA works in close partnership with member clubs to recognize excellence and create a platform for continued success. Sky Tavern, one of this year’s bronze certified clubs, is a unique example of a 501c3 non-profit that not only runs learn to ski and intro to racing programs, but also runs both summer and winter ski area operations.

“Ski Tavern is proud to have achieved bronze certification,” said Executive Director Bill Henderson. “It’s great to see that the USSA recognizes the importance of programs like ours that bring thousands of kids to the sports. David Wise got his start here at Ski Tavern and he went on to fulfill his Olympic dreams.”

The podium level certification process involves a rigorous self-study and peer review of best principles and practices for ski and snowboard clubs. Certified clubs are recognized for achieving a strong balance between athletics, business and community.

“USSA’s club certification process was a great opportunity for us to evaluate where we stand across our entire organization,” said Jim Boyne, executive director of gold certified Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. “We were able to examine both our strengths and opportunities to improve to help us in our continued pursuit of excellence. Seeing the level of engagement in this process by our team, athletes and parents, and our community partners was very rewarding.”

More than 20 clubs are on deck to start the certification process in 2016-17. For more information on the USSA’s club certification process, visit
