Businesses in Menomonee Falls have seen significant growth in recent years, with the village becoming a destination for art galleries, gift shops, improved parks, and new restaurants and bars. Manke remains dedicated to maintaining a vibrant downtown area and plans to continue working towards this goal. While she may be retired from certain aspects of running her business, she has no current retirement plans and remains eager to discuss upcoming festivals and events coming to downtown Menomonee Falls.
