Take advantage of the Northwoods quiet time
There’s no doubt now - we are heading into the Northwoods’ quiet season. As of the beginning of the week, most of the area’s snowmobile trails are reported to be in poor condition. The weather forecast of a possible six inches only resulted in a couple — at the most. The trails will remain open, in hopes that we might get a shot at some snowmobile weather before the trails close for the season March 31.
After some digging, we did find a variety of things happening around the Northwoods this weekend? How about a movie/dinner date night?

One of the greatest advantages about living in a small community is that in times of need, neighbors reach out to those who need support. Saturday night in St. Germain at the Community Building, there will be a spaghetti fundraiser for the Tim Nampel family. Tim is fighting cancer and funds will hep defray medical costs.
The dinner is $10 per adult and children under 10 are $5.00. Tickets can be bought in advance at Spang’s or Knitt’s or purchased at the door.

Been a while since you went bowling? This should be a great weekend to head over to Lac du Flambeau to challenge Lady Luck. There is always something to do in the Northwoods - just decide and go!
