Looking for things to do in the coming week in Milwaukee’s southern suburbs? How about taking in a program on indoor seed-starting? Or hitting the lanes for a bowling fundraiser? Or getting your dog’s sense of smell fine-tuned?
Don’t fret if your thumb is more flesh-toned than green, there is gardening help.
And it’s free.
The Franklin Public Library is putting on a gardening series and they’re beginning in a logical place: starting seeds.
Joey and Holly Baird from “The Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener” will show attendees how to start seeds indoors to get a jump on the gardening season. They’ll cover the dos and don’ts of seed starting, which plants do well when started indoors and about the tools you can use to help.
“Seed Starting” runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the library, 9151 W. Loomis Road, Franklin.
No registration is needed and you don’t need to be a Franklin resident to attend. For more information, contact Caitlin Sprague at Caitlin.Sprague@mcfls.org or call the library at 414-425-8214.
Hit the lanes for this fundraiser for the Friends of Autism.
Bowl-For-Autism runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at the Root River Center/Swagger Sports Bar & Grill, 7220 W. Rawson Ave., Franklin.
The fee of $10 gets you in. There’ll be raffle prizes, a 50/50 auction and other fun, including an appearance by featured guest LeRoy Butler, longtime Green Bay Packers safety.
The Eric Look Band and Pat McCurdy are also slated to appear.
Night of a Million Stars
Games, a photo booth, face painting, a cake walk, raffles and silent auction will all be part of “Edgewood’s Night of a Million Stars Enchanted Evening” March 2.
The event, put on by the Edgewood Elementary PTO, is at 6 p.m. at Oak Creek East Middle School, 9330 S. Shepard Ave., Oak Creek.
Students are encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite movie or television star and dance the night away.
Coloring for grown-ups
Coloring. It’s not just for kids anymore.
So grown-ups, grab that burnt sienna crayon and make some magic.
Adult coloring is from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, March 5, at the Oak Creek Public Library, 8040 S. 6th St., Oak Creek, in the Technology Training Lab.
The library will provide colored pencils, crayons and coloring sheets. You provide the artistic vision.
Registration is not required — just drop in.
AKC Scent Work trials
Dog owners who’d like to fine-tune their pooch’s scent-sniffing sensibilities may be interested to know that the Cudahy Kennel Club will host AKC Scent Work trials March 3-4.
AKC Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that it’s been found. The AKC calls it a positive, challenging activity that allows dogs the chance to use their strongest natural sense in a way that’s fun, engaging and that strengthens trust between the handler and dog.
The trials will be held at the Cudahy Kennel Club, 3820 S. Pennsylvania Ave., St. Francis. At last check, space was filling up quickly. For details, go to www.cudahykennelclub.org.
If you have an event you’d like to see included in an upcoming Get-Out Guide, send the information — including the date, time, location, cost and another important information — to email@example.com, and put “Get-Out Guide” and the community name in the subject line. Please submit information at least three weeks prior to the event.
