GARDEN BASED NUTRITION GRANT FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

 

 

Northwoods LEAN (Linking Education, Activity and Nutrition) is a chronic disease prevention and management coalition dedicated to improving the health of residents in Oneida and Vilas Counties through physical activity and nutrition.

 

This year the coalition will be accepting grant applications for schools, afterschool programs, and summer programs that serve students in Oneida and Vilas County.  Acceptable activities to apply for include fresh fruit and vegetable taste testing, growing plants, starting a garden, and other activities that support increasing fresh fruit or vegetable access or increasing awareness of where food comes from.  These programs are designed to give students a hands-on learning opportunity to improve their knowledge of nutrition and food preference.  In addition, gardening helps students strengthen their academic, personal, and social skills.   

 

Applicants will have the opportunity to determine how they would like to incorporate a garden based nutrition program, and whether it will be a small scale or large scale project.  A small scale project will be anything that requires $500 or less to complete.  A large scale project will be anything that requires more than $500 but less than $1,500 to complete. 

 

The grant will be open from March 1 – March 31, 2015.  Applicants will be notified of their status on April 15, 2015.  The project period will then run from April 15, 2015 – December 31, 2015.

The Premiere Paul McCartney Concert Experience

The Campanile Center for the Arts will be host for this wonderful trip back in time. Wednesday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. The McCartney Years show will delight those who remember those days and will excite those who experience this music for the first time.

Experience three decades of ‘The Beatles’ and ‘Wings’ live – with the world’s premier McCartney concert experience. Rewind into the 60s and 70s to dance, sing and relive your passion for McCartney with a band that has opened for Mariah Carey, performed sold-out shows across Canada and been featured on CNN.   

Praised by Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein – the guy who brought the original Beatles to North America – as “the best on the scene today”, The McCartney Years is a note-for-note faithful recreation of a mid 1970s Paul McCartney concert.

Led by perfectionist Yuri Pool as Sir Paul, the band has a commitment to 100% live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience.  The show is period-true, technically stunning and sonically explosive. Every note is live and played true to its original arrangement.  It has set the standard for all who might follow in this significant body of work. And….it’s a blast to watch and listen to! And the band doesn’t miss a beat delivering a texture that will transport you back to the first time you heard these great songs on vinyl.

The Campanile Center for the Arts is located in downtown Minocqua at the corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Tickets are Adults $20, and Students $10 and may be purchased by visiting our website: campanilecenter.org, by calling 715-356-9700, or at the door. Auditorium doors will open at 6:30 PM.

Corps scheduled to compete in River City Rhapsody are Blue Saints, Sudbury, ON, Canada; Blue Stars, La Crosse, WI; Legends, Kalamazoo MI; Madison Scouts, Madison WI; Music City, Nashville TN and Pioneer, Milwaukee WI. 

River City Rhapsody will begin at 7 p.m.; with the gates opening at 5 p.m. Tickets for the performance can be purchased in advance at rivercityrhapsody.com/wausau.php, or by calling 507.269.8280. 

"The return of a regional drum corps show to the Wausau area is something people have been asking for and the Blue Stars are pleased to be partnering with local music programs to make it a reality,” said Gary Tollers, event coordinator. “Drum corps is the kind of entertainment that everyone in the family will enjoy. It is inspiring and exciting what these young people do on a football field." 

Each corps consists of a hornline, drumline, front ensemble and colorguard.  The 150 young men and women in each of the corps are 14 to 21 years old. The corps travel over 12,000 miles each summer, going daily from city to city competing in over 35 events in two months. 

While in north Central Wisconsin, each corps will be housed at an area school and spend rehearsal time perfecting their summer programs which conclude in mid-August at the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis.

"These talented performers come from all over the United States and various other countries with many furthering their musical careers as music educators, dance directors and professional performers,” said Tollers.

North Central Wisconsin was once home to several Drum and Bugle Corps including Wausau Story, Wausau; Bells of St. Mary, Rhinelander; Zephyrs, Wisconsin Rapids and Maria, Stevens Point. 

Various sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available for River City Rhapsody. Anyone interested should contact Tollers at 507.250.2776. 

Support for this project is provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency, the Community Foundation, and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation.
