Robin Manke has been a lifelong resident of Menomonee Falls, her family being part of the community for over a century. She is the owner of Robin’s Nest, a store that specializes in current fashion with a focus on USA-made garments. The store has been in operation since 1982 and is located next to her father’s shop, Dan’s Tog Shop, one of the oldest contiguous businesses in Menomonee Falls.
With a family history dating back to the 1890s, it’s clear why Manke is committed to her community. Over the years, she has made significant contributions to Menomonee Falls, including working with the local food pantry and teaching Sunday school for 50 years. Despite being a humble individual, Manke’s friends and community recognize her dedication and commitment.
Businesses in Menomonee Falls have experienced significant growth in recent years. The village has become a destination, with art galleries, gift shops, improved parks, and new restaurants and bars. Manke remains devoted to maintaining a vibrant and lively downtown area and plans to continue her work there.
Despite her lengthy community involvement, Manke has no current retirement plans and is eager to discuss upcoming festivals and events coming to downtown Menomonee Falls. If you want to tell Natalie about an Everyday Hero, send her a message at [email protected].
