From Amery to Broadway!
Hailed by The New York Times as ³WKHEHVWPXVLFDORI
WKLVFHQWXU\´ and the winner of nine Tony Awards®, 7KH
%RRNRI0RUPRQ is the blockbuster Broadway smash
from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone,
and the Oscar®-winning composer of Disney’s Frozen
and Avenue Q, Bobby Lopez. This outrageous musical
comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched
pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to
spread the Good Word. Now with standing room only
productions in London, on Broadway, and across North
America, The Book of Mormon has truly become an
international sensation.
Contains explicit language and mature humor - not appropriate for young theatre-goers.

You can make them,
you can use them,
you can hang them
on the wall, or you
can give them as a
gift! Snowshoes are
challenging, yet fun
to make. Snowshoes
are beautiful, yet useful. Snowshoes are
relatively inexpensive, yet they can last a
lifetime.
Learn the art of snowshoe lacing with
Natural Resource Educator Julie Fox from
Wisconsin Interstate Park. Join Julie on
a Saturday and Tuesday evening for a
historical look at snowshoeing and handson instruction to lace your own pair of
snowshoes from a kit.
The Ojibwa-style snowshoe kit includes
unvarnished wood frames, nylon lacing,
and H-style bindings.
The workshop is for adults and teens and
limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration

The genus Russula includes some very
beautiful and interesting species of forest
mushrooms, and many are very hard to
distinguish. Because russulas are typically
fairly large, and because they are often
brightly colored, amateur mushroomers
are frequently interested in identifying
them. We will learn about the edible and
toxic species and also look at closely
related and similar-looking mushrooms.
Relationships with trees and other plants
and fungi will also be discussed. As a
follow-up to the 101 or 201 classes, we can

Come to the high school gym on
Wednesday nights to play the fastest
growing recreational sport in the nation.
This mini-tennis game is a combination
of ping-pong, tennis, racquetball and
badminton played with wood, composite
and graphite paddles and unique plastic
balls. It is easy to learn, provides plenty
of exercise, and is played on a court much
smaller than a tennis court. Participants
don't have to be strong, don't have to be
quick, and don't have to be athletic or
good at other sports. Pickleball is not
about power, but instead it is about shot
placement and accuracy.

We are simply two moms
on a mission to provide
healthier options and
choices for our families!
Through Meredith’s
journey for a healthier
and happier lifestyle, she
has spent countless hours
of research working on
understanding how what
she eats affects the overall person she is
striving to be. When Stephani learned that
her family was getting sick from gluten
and lactose, she needed to make changes
in their diet. Through research and lots of
discussion and conversation, this daunting
task became the pinnacle to her family’s
healthier lifestyle.
Please join us as we demonstrate just
how easy and fun working with “real”
food can be! You will get copies of some
of our favorite recipes, lists of suggested
professional books, websites and blogs,
and you will get to sample a few of our
creations! We plan to have interactive
discussion throughout the demonstration,
as we want to learn from you too! It is our
goal to inspire or re-ignite your passion for

Dr. Mary Fischer has used hypnosis to achieve and maintain a
60-pound ZHLJKWORVV. How will you look and feel if you don't
stop your obsession with food today? Hypnosis can help you
control your eating habits and help you stop the constant thinking
about food, overeating, and snacking.
Don’t let WREDFFR control your life. If you’re ready to quit
smoking or chewing tobacco, hypnosis can help you stop
immediately, without withdrawal, cravings or gaining weight.
Bring a pillow or blanket for extra comfort.

The ASI Spelmanslag is the fiddling group of the
American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
They play the traditional folk music of Sweden, primarily
from the region of Dalarna and includes traditional dance
tunes such as waltzes, schottisches, and polskas.
The music they play represents a living
tradition that started hundreds of
years ago in Sweden. The melodies
were made by women as they sang to
their cattle in the summer pastures; by
miners and loggers as they marched to
and from their work; and by countless
common people who enjoyed singing
and dancing with family and friends.
The music and rhythms lifted their
spirits as they experienced joys and
sorrows together. Sweden's tradition of fiddle music goes
back hundreds of years as well. Swedes say they have a tune
for every occasion from weddings, baptisms, and funerals to
dances, feasts, and holidays.
For more information about the
group, visit asispelmanslag.org
