Fruitcake Summit

December is National Fruitcake Month! Let's celebrate the much maligned fruitcake with a summit meeting of fruitcake fun. Enjoy the history of fruitcake, fruitcake tasting & voting for your favorite, a children's fruitcake craft, and "fruitcake" flinging! The event wraps up in the library entryway with hot cocoa and live music by the Badger Chordhawks! Fruitcake tasting starts at 12pm and continues while supplies last. Sponsored by Grebe's Bakery in Milwaukee.
