The Prez Says --

“Single and looking for something to do?”.

Hope this message finds everyone well if not bored. As you've probably guessed, all CWN events are postponed until future notice due to COVID-19 concerns and governmental guidelines. We are looking forward to the time when we'll be able to get together once again. In the meantime, relax, sit tight, take a walk, read that book you've been meaning to and, stay healthy! We'll get through this together.

The 2020 CWN Board of Directors elected the following as Officers at their organizations meeting held Tuesday, February 25, 2020.

President - Joe Tylka

Vice President and Secretary - Sara Bredesen

SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart? A modern twist on the Jane Austen classic!

Based on a novel by Jane Austen. Adapted by Kate Hammill. Guest Director Jessica Lanius.

A playful new adaption of Jane Austen's beloved novel following the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters -- sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne -- after their father's sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor emotional depth, and bold theatricality.

Please RSVP to joetylka@yahoo.com by February 26 for dinner reservations. Seating will be limited and is not assigned so ticket purchase can be on your own. Tickets can be purchased on the UWSP Box Office website. https://uwsptickets.universitytickets.com/w/. Cost is $26 or $23 senior. Hope to see you there!

Friday, August 7, 2020

Fire Fly Lake Campground - Click for Google Maps Map
10269 County Hwy N
Boulder Junction WI 54512

SAVE THE DATE FOR Additional 2020 CAMPING

After a very successful first-time camping weekend in the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest this year (2019), those who took part asked to have it repeated but possibly with a few extras…like hot showers!

For 2020, save the weekend of Aug. 7-9 for another camp out. We will be going to Firefly Lake Campground where there are hot showers and running water at a central building and pit toilets/hand pumps if you choose. There are no electric hookups in any of the sites.

(https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/StateForests/nhal/documents/FireflyLake.pdf).

Firefly has both reservable and drop-in sites. Your hosts (Floyd and Sara) will be roughly near sites 269/270, if you want to find a place close to the action. Reservations through WI DNR can be made up to 11 months in advance of the camping start date at https://wisconsin.goingtocamp.com/. This campground usually has open sites, but it is popular in August, so think about reserving early for the best locations.

Contact: questions to: Sara at 715-360-7253 or stbrede@gmail.com or Floyd at 715-680-1304 or floydkayakk@frontier.com.
