A brief filed Friday with Wisconsin Court of Appeals by legal counsel for the owner of Sisters of the Holy Nativity Convent [Alderman Law Firm] asks that the property be saved from the city of Fond du Lac’s demolition order. . .

“Our national historic monuments should be preserved, not destroyed and, especially given the current pandemic, there is no better use for the property than to allow time for repair,” [Attorney] Penix said. “Panoussis hopes that the city will not be able to scrape away history and replace the nativity with a Kentucky Fried Chicken, and turns to the Court of Appeals in hopes of support for his efforts and our collective past.””
