APPLETON, WI–Appleton is buzzing about an upcoming visit from the First Lady this week.
According to President Obama’s campaign office, Michelle Obama will speak at Lawrence University on Friday. Doors will open to the public at 1:00pm.
Leaders in the Fox Valley say the First Lady’s visit is a sign of good things to come for the area.
The business community is very excited, saying while it may not necessarily mean a boost in revenue it could mean potentially better economic development prospects.
As a battleground state, Wisconsin has been getting lots of campaign attention. In the last month, stops from the President and Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, in Milwaukee. And both vice presidential candidates campaigned in Ashwaubenon.
Now it’s Appleton’s turn with the First Lady’s visit on Friday.

We just wanted to help the media with crowd estimates before it takes place. Our guess is just as good as the main stream and local media. Can someone please call Tom Barrett and ask him how many people will attend?
We wonder what the real number will be of crowd estimates of the first ladies visit to Lawrence University? The Alexander Gymnasium is where she will speak. Let’s see, a gymnasium, 3000, 8,000, 15,000 or even 20,000? How many in the media will run with the 20,000?
