Spot A Clock: Centennial Park in West Milwaukee

This month’s ‘Spot a Clock’ is the public clock located in Centennial Park in West Milwaukee. The park is located at the southwest corner of Beloit Road and Greenfield Avenue.


Centennial Park is an example of a “Pocket Park.” Pocket parks are small public areas that are often irregular or small parcels of land that cannot be developed for other uses. They provide communities with opportunities to introduce small-scale public spaces without the infrastructure or costs associated with a larger park. They can hold sculpture gardens, skateboard-friendly features, or in this case, a clock.

This particular park was dedicated in 1968 as a way to beautify the area. These parks are also often used to provide memorials to veterans or others who have sacrificed for the community.

This particular clock was produced by the Verdin Clock Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Verdin Clock Company has been producing and servicing public clocks since 1842.

Chapter 47’s Meeting Location Has Changed

Norway House has cancelled our contract as they are selling the building and the new owners are not interested in renting.  I have found a new location that is similar in size and not too far from our old location.  The facility is very nice and compatible with the things we do at our meetings.  Rent is the same but they will make the coffee and do setup and take down which will be nice.
New Location is:
Knights of Columbus, 1800 South 92nd Street, West Allis, WI 53214
Hours: 8:00 Mart setup, 9:00 Mart opens, 10:00 Educational Program
Dates reserved are as follows:
September 24, 2017, same as planned for Norway House
November 19, 2017, new date (different from date on previous schedules)
