Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood News

Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood News is the hardcopy flyer/newsletter delivered door-to-door within the neighborhood to invite all residents to neighborhood events. One traditional event is the summer picnic usually held in August. Another is the Annual Meeting of the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association where new Neighborhood Council members are elected to carry on the business of the Association between membership meetings. The Annual Meeting is held in September or October, as specified in the By-laws.

Both the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood News (hard copy) and the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood e-News are archived at the Wisconsin Historical Society, on the University of Wisconsin Campus, 816 State Street. Issues are available from 1973-1998 and then from 2006-present (2012).
