Events, activities, seminars, etc.

  • Andi Cloud invites Madison residents to hunt for a hand-made medallion in City of Madison parks. The clear, acrylic medallion has the Great Seal of the Ho-Chunk Nation engraved and is hidden within a City of Madison public park. Clues will be published online starting Wednesday, December 1, 2021. A new clue will appear daily through Friday, December 10, 2021, unless the medallion is found before that date. The person who finds the medallion will get to keep it and will also win a $50 gift card! Learn more about how to participate.
  • In partnership with the Wisconsin Book Festival, author Patty Loew will appear live on Crowdcast on December 9 at 7pm to discuss her book, Seventh Generation Earth Ethics, and the increasing pressures to turn Indigenous lands into "sacrifice zones"--geographic areas that are permanently affected by environmental damage.
  • Two Madison Public Library locations are offering FREE tech repair for tablets, laptops, and phones! Drop-in programs hosted at Lakeview and Meadowridge Libraries. Learn more here.
  • Helpful sewers from the Sewing Machine Project are offering free, onsite mending services at Central Library every Thursday, from 10am – 12pm throughout December and January (not available December 23). They can mend clothing, coats, and any other fabric-related repairs, with the exception of zippers. No sign-up required! Drop in anytime.

Announcements, press releases, press conferences, etc.

  • The Streets Division will be performing a last chance leaf collection. Residents who still need curbside leaf and yard waste collection need to get their yard waste out for pickup by Sunday, December 5. Streets Division crews will be running at full capacity to collect as much as they can as quickly as possible to hopefully beat the winter snows. If you miss that final pickup or if you would rather not take the chance that a snowstorm will bury your leaves on the terrace until the spring, then the drop-off sites are available (but be advised – reduced winter availability begins December 3). More details about the last chance pickup can be found here.
  • The Madison Police Department is launching a new tool to help improve communication between officers and the community, all through the touch of your fingertips. Starting Wednesday, the department will use SPIDR Tech, a service that sends text messages to smartphone users who call 911 or the department's non-emergency line. The Madison Police Department is the first agency in the state of Wisconsin to use this type of technology. Learn more here.
  • The City of Madison Streets Division is happy to announce a new item we can place into our recycling containers. Madison residents can now recycle empty and dry paper cups. This includes takeout coffee cups and paper fast food cups. Learn more here.
  • Do you want to receive up to $3,000 for your group? If so, you should apply for a grant from By Youth For Youth, a youth-led grant program offering up to $3,000 for student-led projects, clubs, and ideas that will better Dane County. More information can be found here. Apply for a grant here. Applications are due by January 9, 2022.

Save the Date

  • All potential applicants for the Neighborhood Grant Program must meet with city staff by January 17. Applications will be due February 7. Please send an email to neighborhoods@cityofmadison.com to request your pre-application meeting, and check the city's webpage in mid-December for 2022 program materials.
  • On Tuesday, December 14, Andi Cloud wraps up her Storyteller Residency by getting personal! The virtual event, Being Hinu: Growing Up Ho-Chunk in the 20th Century, will provide a look into Andi's life, including pivotal moments where she learned her tribe's ways and started to define what the Ho-Chunk life means to her. Register here.
