A century ago, the growth of the Schenk family businesses triggered commercial development and gave its name to Schenk’s Corners.  The Huegel surname followed when daughter Elsie married Arthur Huegel in 1910. Ann Waidelich (current owner of Art and Elsie Huegel’s house), Sue Retzlaff (Art and Elsie Huegel’s granddaughter) and Wayne Johnson (last owner of the Schenk-Huegel Co.) will present a PowerPoint program of historic photos and recent video about the building and the families from 1893 – 2011.

Join us at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street, on Saturday October 15 from 2–4pm. $2 suggested donation.
