Following the first major restoration in 40 years, The Parkway will not only showcase classic 35mm films and live events—but become a regional cultural hub featuring world-class performing arts, comedy, and engaging speaker series.

Since 2005, Kickapoo Coffee has worked to forge lasting, equitable partnerships with small-scale farmers. They work directly with coffee cooperatives and growers to ensure high standards for quality, sustainability and farmer compensation. Last year, they installed a 25-Kilowatt solar array at their roastery in Viroqua, WI, which provides 100% of the energy needed to roast their coffee beans.
