Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet navigated from Lake Michigan through the Milwaukee River on their way to the Fox River and the Mississippi. Previously (circa 1834-35) the river had been known as the \u0022Maynawalky\u0022. As Milwaukee grew from a frontier town to a burgeoning metropolis, its rivers served as a thoroughfare for commerce. Unfortunately, it also served as its sewer. As time went on, alternate means of transportation and relocation of industry to the suburbs rendered the riverway underutilized and polluted. In the early 1990\u2019s the river became a nexus for development and the beginning of reclaiming the river edge as an urban amenity that it has become today."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Join us to see and hear from Corey Zetts the Executive Secretary of the Menomonee Valley Partners (MVP) of the successes and challenges as she recounts her experiences with new developments along the Menomonee River and those envisioned for the future."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Light Hors d\u0027oeuvres and beverages provided.
