Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty details 125th celebration events and restoration of Hoffman Tower
The village of Lyons is set to host a series of events this fall in honor of the Village’s 125th Anniversary celebration and to raise funds for the restoration of the Hoffman Tower.
Events will include a community picnic October 13th in Veterans Park and a formal dinner dance at the village hall on November 15th.
Mayor Getty unveiled these plans to more than 40 residents outside of the Hoffman tower Sunday.
“This is a wonderful moment to look back and celebrate 125 years of rich history, but it is also a wonderful moment to be able to stand on the brink of new history and come together to shape our future,” said Mayor Getty.
Mayor Getty said these events gives us the opportunity to rededicate ourselves to our heritage, our history and our values.
The October 13th community picnic in Veterans Park will be outfitted with historical displays, entertainment for all ages and food, including an authentic Door County fish boil hosted by the Lyons Retirees.

The November 15th formal dinner dance will be held inside the community rooms at the village hall.
All proceeds raised from the dinner dance will be dedicated to community programs, senior projects, youth events and the restoration of Hoffman Tower.
Restoring the Hoffman Tower has been a goal for the village for quite some time, said Mayor Getty.
The Village plans to use the anniversary to make people aware of the funds needed to renovate the tower and to help initiate a long term restoration schedule.
“For decades the Hoffman tower has been a historic landmark in Lyons and a symbol of our endurance, our strength and our heritage,” said Mayor Getty.
“Lyons has made great strides these past few years and we have great promise. We must continue to prosper,” said Mayor Getty.
“Working together there are no limitations to the advancements this community can make.”
