The organization contin-ues to grow in membership and has already sponsored severalgreat events.
In November, Home and School sponsored a bake sale inconjunction with musical storyteller, Randy Peter-
son’s presentation. The association netted $252.
 In January, Home and School sponsored a family movienight and raffle fundraiser. Over 200 people attend-ed and had a great time. Also, as a result $532 wasraised.In January, Home and School hosted a special appreciation luncheon for the teachers, staff, and school board mem-bers at Wabeno Elementary.In February, a second bake sale was held during the parent-teachers conferences and netted $260.Friday, March 2

 The first UNAC (Up North Authors Circle) meeting of 2012 was held at the Lakewood Library on February 8. Facilitator Kathleen
Marsh welcomed members back to begin the group’s seventh year of sharing their writings.
Nancy Jo Garner began by reading her newest poem, “Familiar Stranger.” Nancy Jo said she intends to make the poem into a song 
, which
met with nods of enthusiastic approval from the group. Her poem is written in autobiographical quatrains with a “pay it forward”
In explaining why she wrote it, Nancy Jo elicited big smiles: “Kathleen Marsh and UNAC changed my life. She deserves so much
creditfor getting me started on a musical career that has evolved over the past year, far beyond anything I could have imagined. At the firstmeeting I attended, she and other UNAC members convinced me to perform at the Townsend Variety Show, and now I am entertaining 
on weekends at the Big Easel Restaurant in Wabeno.” Townsend writer George Arentz was next. He blew away the group with a short story he entitles: “In theMarvel of Miracles.” This lengthy piece is yet another of those richly composed mosaic narratives that
George is noted for. This time the setting is the Fox Valley, where the protagonist experiences unspeakable
tragedy while finding true love. George’s story is a tale of human beings battling the worst of themselves,
only to be saved by the power of love that they so desperately need. The meeting ended with Shari Posselt reading a thought-
provoking poem, “Bursting.” Shari’s rhymed verse
is a wonderfully emotional piece in which the narrator stuffs his feelings and puts on a happy face. He doesit for so long that he loses sight on his true self and then bursts, losing it and himself in a tragic meltdown.Everyone agreed that Shari has a way of packing her work with colorful language that really communicatesan important message.UNAC will meet again on March 13 at 5:00 at the Lakewood Library. New members are always welcome.
