6:00 PM - 7:30 PMAuthor Melanie McManus 



Location:  Community Room
Contact:  Diane Jaroch
Description:  In 2013, Melanie Radzicki McManus set out from the western terminus of the Ice Age Trail in Interstate State Park in St. Croix Falls with the goal of completing a thru-hike of the trail in the fastest known time (FKT) for a woman.

McManus documents her thru-hike in her book "Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail" .  It's not just a book about her own journey to become a "thousand-miler," the term given to people who hike all 1,200 miles of the national scenic trail. It's about the places and people that define Wisconsin's longest hiking trail — from the volunteers who build and maintain it to the other hikers who have tackled it.  

The author will talk about her book and her journey on the trail.  She will have books for sale.  This event is open to all.

6:00 PM - 7:30 PMBill Jamerson "Lumberjack" 



Location:  Community Room
Contact:  Diane Jaroch
Description:  Imagine you are an 18 year old immigrant from Sweden and after weeks of traveling by train and horse drawn wagon you arrive at a lumber camp to report to work. On the first day you are shown the bunk you will share with three other men, and get a tour of the camp which includes a blacksmith shop, stable and tool shed. For dinner, you are treated to a meal that includes pot roast, potatoes, fresh dinner rolls, and a large slice of apple/prune pie. After a night on a hay mattress, you are awaken in the morning by the cook, "It's daylight in the swamps" he yells! It's still dark at 5:30am when you start the long walk to the logging site. Your job as a swamper involves notching trees for the sawyers and trimming branches off the trees once they hit the ground. The work is hard, but you're grateful because you're earning $1 a day, and living the American dream.

The story of lumberjack is a window into the world of our immigrant forefathers. These colorful tales appeal to people of all ages. Bill presents a social history with stories and traditional songs, from the lumberjack era. This program has a "laugh a minute" and appeals to anyone who has an appreciation for the woods, whether as a hunter, camper or simply as a hiker.

This program is free and open to all ages.

3:00 PM - 4:30 PMJoyce Westerman and the All American Girls Professional Baseball League: Play Ball! 



Location:  Community Room
Contact:  Diane Jaroch
Description:  Bob Kann, author and performer, will be presenting "Joyce Westerman and the All American Girls Professional Baseball League: Play Ball!"  This presentation is based on his book Joyce Westerman: Baseball Hero, the story of a young girl who grew up on a farm in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
 
As a kid, Joyce cleaned the barn, picked vegetables, and helped her father cut down trees. But what she really loved to do was play baseball. She played at recess and with friends whenever she could, and she even joined her aunt's softball team when she was just 12 years old.
 
When Joyce graduated from high school, she went to work at a factory in Kenosha. But then World War II broke out, and chewing-gum tycoon P. K. Wrigley started a women's baseball league to replace men's baseball while players were away fighting. Women from all over the country tried out for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Only a few were good enough to make the cut, and Joyce was one of them. For eight years, she travelled around the US playing ball, even winning the league championship in her last season.

This program is free and open to everyone.
