Have a Trek bicycle, want a Trek bike, or just interested in how those beautiful bikes are made…you’ll get to see it up close as we make our first stop at their Waterloo facility. It’s all there from concept to testing to riding it out the door. Visit the world headquarters and learn about the history of Trek bikes, athletes, and company. After walking through the historic collection of Treks in their atrium, the tour proceeds through the creative department's design studio, and passes the Race Team Shop, where every bike used by their athletes is built and inspected. Watch as parts become a signature Trek bike. You’ll even see where those personalized paint jobs on high end bikes are done. You’ll also get an inside look at one of Wisconsin's most progressive and green companies.  

Then we are off to lunch at the Fireside in Fort Atkinson and their spectacular rendition of “My Fair Lady”. You can depend upon the Fireside to provide a rousing performance on a chilly March afternoon. No matter how many times you’ve seen it, “My Fair Lady” always delights the audience.

 Often called the World’s Greatest Musical, “My Fair Lady” is a Broadway classic which won six Tony Awards including Best Musical. Its popular film adaptation took home eight Oscars including Best Picture. “My Fair Lady” has entertained over a billion people worldwide with its enchanting Cinderella story about Eliza Doolittle, a bedraggled, cockney flower girl who is transformed into an elegant lady by the brilliant and irascible Professor Higgins by teaching her the proper way to speak. It’s a play that never gets old. It is a beautiful show filled with gorgeous costumes, breath-taking dancing, rib-tickling comedy, and an unforgettable score featuring such hits as “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “I’m Getting Married in the Morning,” and “I Could Have Danced All Night.” This time it is performed as only the Fireside can do.

Deadline  Registrations must be received no later than Friday, February 1, 2019.
