Last few left in Last Man club

12

The Last Man club has met for the last time.

On Dec. 7, the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Kenosha’s Last Man club — comprised of veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict — met for dinner as it has for the last 58 years. As always, they met to share old stories, catch up and remember members who had passed on in the past year.

This year, however, dinner was at 1 p.m., and the primary items on the agenda were the formal disbanding of the group, now down to its last six members, and the preserving of the club’s artifacts: flags, ledgers, photos and its “mascot,” a bottle of Old Grand-Dad bourbon whiskey.

A village of Christmas cheer

It was 33 years ago when Cindy Callow brought home her first Christmas village building, the same year her son, Joe, was born. The piece, a yellow, three-story toy store, sparked a tradition that grew to more than 300 pieces in three decades.

According to Callow, 330 is the exact number.

Another leaf has turned.

Fall is now behind us and winter is upon us; if the plummeting temperatures did not clue you in, the arrival of winter sports should.

One heirloom becomes another

It’s probably not that often that a family heirloom can be created out of another family heirloom, but that’s exactly what Krista Maika had done in 2007.

“When my son (Chase Maika) was born seven years ago, I was searching for a christening outfit with meaning,” said Maika, who first considered using her wedding dress or her brother’s outfit before deciding that “neither seemed to be what I was looking for.”
