The Northwoods Patriots will welcome Julaine Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Council, as the keynote speaker at their first Community Summer Festival event on Sunday Aug. 19, at 4:30 p.m. at the Simac – Kula Ranch. 3860 Kula Vista Dr. in Eagle River.
The members of the Northwoods Patriots invite the public, friends and neighbors to the scholarship fund raiser dinner, an effort to raise the needed funds to expand the Northwoods Patriots Freedom Scholarship to additional area high schools. Currently the scholarship has been available to Northland Pines seniors in Eagle River. It is the hope to offer the scholarship to Three Lakes, Lakeland, Phelps, Rhinelander and Laona in 2013.
Northland Pines 2012 scholarship winner Brett Hughes will be at the event, and will read his winning essay regarding his feelings about freedom. 2009 Laona graduate and current Ripon College student Mathew Koch will also speak. Live music, special guests and food will compliment the gathering. Cost is $25 per ticket, with proceeds going to the NWP Scholarship Fund. Reservations are appreciated.
On Monday, Aug 20, at 9 a.m., there will be a prayer breakfast honoring the Northwoods area clergy members at the ranch. Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Council, will be the morning speaker. She will address the vital roll pastors and clergy have made to communities, families and values throughout American history. Music will be provided by Tom Palmer. All area clergy are invited as honored guests, and may bring a guest. All other attendees are asked to donate a suggested $10 fee that will be given to the Wisconsin Family Council organization. Reservations are not needed.
Both events are being held under the tents. For more information, call (715) 479-8784.
