Editor's note: Beat Notes are filed weekly by Daily Herald Media reporters discussing events on their beats and observations they have made while reporting.

The inaugural Irish Fest will kick off in Weston on Saturday with music, food and a bike rally.

Hosted by Irish native and Basil Restaurant owner Jim Daly, Irish Fest is a half-way-to-St. Patrick's Day celebration for residents of central Wisconsin.

The event lineup includes a 15- to 20-mile bike ride, Irish food and drink and music. Proceeds from beer sales will benefit the local Kiwanis Club, a group to which Daly belongs. Irish dancers and bagpipers will perform, along with bands Two Tap Trio and Marty Sammon.

The event is free, with the exception of the bike ride, which costs $15 for adults and $10 for children. For more information, visit www.irishfestcentralwisconsin.com.

D.C. Everest Area School District goes green

In an effort to be more ecologically friendly, the D.C. Everest Area School District will no longer print fliers for community events and programs.

Instead of printing thousands of documents to send home to parents every year, the district will post the information on its website and make it available for download.

Parents and students can pick up hard copies of fliers at any school site if they prefer. Visit www.dce.k12.wi.us for more information or to download 2013-14 school year program fliers.

Grand Avenue construction project begins this week

A Grand Avenue reconstruction project will begin Tuesday in the city of Schofield on the east-side northbound lanes and adjoining intersections of Cawley, Erdman, Fulmer, Skelly and Lakeview streets.

The project is expected to take four weeks to complete, and traffic will be reduced periodically to one lane in the north and southbound lanes.

For more information, call 715-571-8436.
