FDL Guide 2020

Jenny Knuth Art Director, WISNET Campbellsport

“There are a lot of community collaborations and events that shed light on various causes here. Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) is a really vibrant and contemporary space that hosts some of these events. And during the workday, I just need to go to THELMA’s gallery and wander through the space to feel rejuvenated. Thursdays are a cool open-bar evening (at THELMA)—a nice reminder of all our community has to offer.”

Returning home for a career opportunity after college, Jenny continually meets people who reinforce her good decision to call the region home again. “Once you dive in and get to know the people—and connect them to the various destinations— there’s something really special in this place. A sense of feeling welcome and comfortable with like-minded individuals.” As a part of the planning team for two recent TEDx events hosted at Thelma, Jenny shared that Downtown Fond du Lac as a whole is an attraction, too. “We leveraged the greater Downtown District in our planning to give attendees a sense of all there is to offer here.”

About 30 miles outside of Downtown is a new treasure Jenny recently discovered called SoLu Winery in Cascade. “It’s a beautiful place. And what’s really awesome is they offer live music on the outdoor patio. But what I love most is the connection to an area [animal facility] that allows dogs to swim on the property and jump around from one place to the next. Many people bring their own dogs, too. It’s an awesome place.” “Having a connection to fun, contemporary, trendy things while also being able to simply turn around and take a hike, be outdoors, that’s the right mix for me.” A perfect mix that Fond du Lac readily delivers.
