Kohler couple new owners of


popular Sheboygan Falls
banquet facility
As appeared in the Sheboygan Falls
News by Jeff Pederson, Editor

For more than 30 years, Dave


and Denise Schneider have provided the life for the party at
Range Line Inn.
Since February 1985, the
Schneiders have successfully
hosted countless wedding receptions, banquets and corporate
gatherings, but the time has come
for the couple to turn out the
lights.
Beginning on January 4, 2016,
Range Line Inn will transform
into The Village at 170 as new
owners Jeff and Mel Romanoski
of Kohler officially assume dayto-day operation of the multipurpose banquet facility, located at
170 Rangeline Road in Kohler.
Under the careful tutelage of
Dave and Denise, the Romanoskis
have been busy in recent weeks
learning the intricacies of owning
a banquet hall.
Our daughter had her wedding
reception here last September
20th and Mel and I really enjoyed
the experience of planning, decorating and putting everything
together for that event, Jeff said.
For the past two or three years,
Mel and I have been talking about
doing something different and we
got to talking to Dave and Denise
and it just fell into place.
After running a day care out of
her home for the past 25 years,
Mel is eager to take the leap into a
brand new venture.
When we were putting things
together for our daughters wedding, I started to think that I could
see myself doing something like
this full time, Mel said. I really
enjoyed the opportunity to create a nice, warm atmosphere in a
great facility.

In their early years of ownership, the Schneiders operated


Range Line Inn as mainly a live
entertainment facility, before converting it to a banquet ball specializing in wedding receptions in
1989.
In 1991, they added the
1,200-square-foot grand banquet
hall, which features a seating capacity of 750 people, along with a
wooden dance floor and stage and
a full bar.
The facility also features the
Badger Room, which includes
seating for 300, a large dance area
and a full bar.
My dad rented the place for
a while back when it was called
Bud and Lavernes Bar, Denise
said. We bought it in 1985 in a
sheriffs sale for a pretty decent
price.
For the past three decades, the
Schneiders have taken pride in
building a highly successful business through a good old-fashioned
grass roots neighborly buzz.
We have never really done
much advertising, Dave said. It
has mainly been word of mouth.
Weve built some really good relationships over the years.
There are organizations that
have held their banquets here for
25 years like the NRA and Sheboygan County Conservation
Club, he said. Weve had families come back over and over for
weddings. There is one family that
has had five weddings here. There
are even some people that have
had their weddings here twice.
With a background in community event planning and the floral
and decorating industry, Jeff and
Mel are no strangers to party planning.
Through my work with com-

munity organizations, such as


KPAL [Kohler Police Athletic
League] and the Sheboygan Falls
Lions Club, I have been involved
in putting on the Oktoberfest event
in Sheboygan Falls, which I have
really enjoyed, said Jeff, who is
employed as a sales manager at
Sheboygan Chevrolet Chrysler. I
like the feeling of organizing an
event and giving it that wow factor that grabs peoples attention
and gets them coming back for
more.
My family owned
flower
shops and greenhouses and helped
with weddings and I enjoy the

Range Line Inn soon to be The Village at 170

entertainment side of it, as does


Mel, he said. I used to work at a
floral shop, so I was involved with
preparing flowers and decorating
for weddings quite often, Mel
said. Both Jeff and I come from
big families, where bigger is better. I think that is where we get our
drive to want to entertain people
and show them a good time.
The Romanoskis are hoping to
carry on the tradition of top-notch
hospitality and service set by the
Schneiders, while pumping in

their own special flair.


We are planning to add decorating services as part of our package offerings, which is something
new, Jeff said. We are also looking to start a shuttle service to area
hotels, as well as an airport shuttle.
Another major addition is a
one-night-a-week restaurant specializing in fish fry Fridays.
We are planning to open a
restaurant on Friday nights that
will offer a fish fry and well as a

- Falls News photo by Jeff Pederson

smaller menu in the smaller hall in


the back that most people know as
the Badger Room, Jeff said. We
are hoping to add a wine area by
the fireplace, as well as an outdoor
patio and some other modifications outside.
The current Range Line Inn
banquet hall staff is expected to
stay on board when The Village at
170 makes its debut in January.
Dave and Denise have a very
good staff here that does a great
job with the banquets, Jeff said.
We are very pleased that nearly
all of the current staff members
will be staying and coming on
board with us.
Right now we are looking at
a part-time staff of 17 joining us
with the possibility of adding 17
to 30 more part-time and full-time
positions down the road with the
addition of the restaurant, he
said.
As if those changes werent
enough to grab the attention of future customers, Jeff and Mel are
eyeing the return of live entertainment on an occasional basis.
We are looking at bringing in

Banquet Hall, Continued from page 1


live bands four times a year - the
night before Thanksgiving, New
Years Eve, Valentines Day and
another night sometime in the
spring. We have a nice space for
bands to play in the grand banquet
hall and I think people will be excited about the bands we are aiming to have play here.
The Romanoskis are soaking
up the knowledge imparted by the
Schneiders as they count down the
days until their grand opening.
Dave and Denise have been

very gracious to help us through


the transition process, Jeff said.
They are planning to stay through
June to help us through the early
stages of ownership.
People have been asking about
what is going on with Range Line
and I want to put peoples minds
at ease, he said. The transition is
going very well and I know people
are really going to like what they
see when we open up.
It has been fun learning how
to run a successful banquet hall

from Dave and Denise, Mel said.


They have been very helpful and
patient in teaching us the system.
Their goal is to help us make as
smooth of a transition as possible
and they have been doing a great
job helping us feel as comfortable
as possible.
As their time as the owners of
Range Line Inn hits the home
stretch, Dave and Denise are looking forward to retirement.
We always wanted to retire in
our mid-50s and that actually has

d

turned out to be the case, Denise


said. Im 56 and Dave is 57, so it
has worked out really nicely for us.
We are looking forward to
spending more time with our two
grandkids, doing some traveling
and just enjoying life, she said.
The Romanoskis are preparing to
make their new venture a family
affair.
Our four kids Ashley and her
husband Tom, Megan, Alex and
Brock will be involved, which
will make it even more special,

Jeff said. Im excited and over the


past few months Mel has been as
happy as Ive ever seen her. Shes
been gaining confidence every day
learning new things and feeling
good that we can make this a successful venture.

Kohler junior experiencing Ireland


during study abroad opportunity
Catherine Sutherland, a Junior
at Kohler High School has been
enjoying an opportunity to study
abroad in County Tipperary, Ireland with the Council on International Educational Exchange
(CIEE). Catherine left for Ireland
this past August and will return
home in June. She was chosen to
write a blog about her experience
on the CIEE website. Her mother, Sally, said Catherine brought
Thanksgiving to Ireland by preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal for 17 guests. She gave
a brief history of the traditional
American holiday and followed
with a Thanksgiving prayer. The
guests reportedly loved the meal
and Catherine received a toast
and standing ovation. Sally said
her daughters Christmas has also
been wonderful and Catherine
was able to experience her first
Irish Christmas Pudding. We are
so fortunate that Catherine has
been blessed with a wonderful
host family, said Sally.
On her blog, Catherine wrote,
Ireland really focuses on family
rather than materialism, and that
is something I think should be

more relevant in America. In Ireland, you dont have to be a doc-

tor to be a good person, you dont


have to be a millionaire, you dont

have to be the most amazing person on the planet. You just have
to be a genuine human being, and
the only way to be that is to stay
true to who you are.

Superintendents Report (Quynh Trueblood)
The school community celebrated American Education Week
with a banner signing and appreciations. There are few other countries in the world whose societal values guarantee a
free and public education for all children. This year, 50.1
million students are educated by public school teachers
who come to the vocation with a moral purpose and serve
with professional expertise.
The strategic communication plan survey has been delivered to all stakeholders who support the children in our
schools. The survey window remains open for 3 weeks:
from November 20 through December 14. School Perceptions LLC will collect and analyze the data and present the
finding to the School Board in an open forum on January
11 at 6 pm.

The Kohler School Friends Craft Fair was amazing! I am
beyond impressed with this community and the support
they provide to our school. Thank you to everyone who participated in this wonderful event!
Our PBIS focus this month is on students being tardy to
school. The morning class time is one of the most important
times of the day, so we really want to have children get to
school on time. The students are let into the school at 7:50
and school begins at 8:00.
Staff and students are all looking forward to our first PBIS
incentive reward which is a game day that will be held on
Dec. 1.

UAW 833 Strike
As of this writing, it is the first day after the strike for the
UAW 833 is officially over. Things are getting back to normal in the Village. Im in the process of writing thank you
letters to our law enforcement partners, including the Sheboygan County Sheriffs Department, Sheboygan Falls PD,
Sheboygan PD as well as the State Patrol. Due to our size,
we needed assistance at times from these departments. To
me it seemed seamless. All the departments have learned to
work together, a nice byproduct of the golf events that we
are well versed in dealing with. I also wanted to thank the
Village of Kohler citizens for their understanding. We tried
our best to take back normalcy after the first couple of
days, and then to deal with the issues as they would arise.
The officers worked long days and extra days to make this
happen. I received very few citizen complaints. I think
we actually received more compliments than complaints.
Those compliments came from residents and even some
picketers. Thanks for the good words, they are appreciated
by all.

SNOW REMOVAL
Winter is upon us. Here are some reminders on Village
snow removal ordinances and policies:
It is the residents responsibility to have the snow
removed around the mail kiosks. The Postal Service
will not deliver mail if the carrier is not able to reach the
unit the front as well as the backside. Someone in the
unit/neighborhood needs to take the initiative to remove
the snow or perhaps the responsibility can be shared
amongst neighbors.
Please remember to shovel your sidewalks within 24
hours after a snowfall event.
Do not blow or shovel snow back into the street.
Please remove vehicles from the street when the plows
are in operation.
Please do not put garbage cans in the street when it is
snowing and plows are in operation.
CHRISTMAS TREE PICKUP
Christmas trees will be picked up January 5th, 12th & 19th.
