Looking for something special to do with the kids or grandkids over the Fourth of July weekend? Why not bring them out
to the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp Museum Family Field Day on July 7th? The
Museum will be open for tours starting at 10 a.m. and the field activities begin at
11:00 a.m.

This first ever family-friendly activity offers a unique opportunity for youngsters
to learn some essential lumberjacking skills. Staff will be on hand to help kids
entering fourth grade and up learn to stamp a log, use a crosscut saw, and position
and move heavy timber using cant hooks and log carriers. All participants will
receive free souvenirs provided by the Forest Service.

Holt & Balcom is located off Highway F in Lakewood. Take Highway 32 to

County Trunk F; go east 1.5 miles. Turn right into the McCauslin Golf Course
and follow the signs. Park in the golf course parking lot. The Museum is directly
behind the Clubhouse. A $5.00 per person donation is requested for these special

Last Wednesday the DNR held their open house in Antigo regarding the all season recreational bridge across the Wolf River at Lang-
lade. We counted 60-70 folks total who attended the event. Frankly we were a bit disappointed in the turnout but it was a weeknight
and quite a drive for everyone in our county. FYI the presentation was very balanced and I would say even a bit favorable for getting
the bridge built. A photo of a similar bridge project and a Q&A are attached to give you more information about the project.

Survey is very very important to getting this bridge built

A HUGE part of the decision will be based on the answers to the online Survey Monkey hosted by the DNR. If you already did the
survey a big THANK YOU!!! If not we are asking that you do so right away! Also please forward to anyone on you mailing list that
may have an interest in this topic. The Survey direct link is The survey must be
done before July 10th! With the 4th of July Holiday coming up please do this in the next day or two Please.

At the meeting everyone kept talking about the “ATV Bridge”. Fact is this bridge is also for snowmobile and silent sports use. If
you have ever ridden to Langlade County via the Hwy 64 Bridge you know it is a little scary to say the least. (See Hwy 64 bridge
photo attached) This project would take snowmobiles across the river safely. In your comments please talk about snowmobiling and
the safety factor involved in getting the bridge built. Also please consider talking about how important it is to link motorized summer
recreation between Langlade and Oconto Counties. A recent club Facebook page post about the project got over 32,000 views and

If you don’t want to do the survey on line you can use the link below to print out a hard copy of the survey but mail it in right

We need every business and motorized recreational rider in Oconto County to help us win this 6 year struggle to finally have a way
to cross the Wolf River safely. Do the survey now while it is fresh on your mind.

Plans are being finalized for the 64th Annual Mardi Gras in Lakewood to be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July
13, 14, & 15, 2018. The event is a long-time mainstay of Northwoods celebrations and, as like last year, some changes
and additions are being made to keep the event fresh and relevant.

Some of the activities of past Mardi Gras celebrations will re-

main, including the Spectrum Carnival rides on the midway,
the softball tournament to be held on Saturday and Sunday, the
noon parade through downtown Lakewood on Sunday, a wide
variety of foods and favorite beverages offered, and music eve-
ry evening.

Some activities that were added last year will return. There
will again be a Human Foosball Tournament on Friday, with a
tentative starting time of 4:00 p.m. Those games will be fol-
lowed by musical entertainment from A-Town Unplugged at
7:00 p.m. The Museum For A Weekend will again be held in
the new Community
Building. Featuring
many historical dis-
plays and memorabil-
ia, the exhibits will be open for FREE public viewing from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00
p.m. on Saturday, and from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. The large
displays honoring area military veterans will again be included with the Muse-
um For A Weekend presentations. The Trout Pond for the little kids will again
be provided on Saturday afternoon. The Pig Roast that was added last year will
also return on Saturday afternoon, with a promise that much more pork will be
available than last year, when the roast pork sold out quickly. The musical en-
tertainment for Saturday night will be Cranken Yankees at 7:00 p.m., and DJ
Greg Tallier will start at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

Among the additions for this year will be a Fun Scramble Pickleball Tourna-
ment, starting at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning; and Corn Hole Tournament tenta-
tively being scheduled for Saturday. A meat raffle will also be offered on Sun-
day afternoon. An additional food booth will operate this year and offerings will
include the regular burgers, hot dogs, brats, etc., plus corn on the cob, pizza, and
ice cream.

The highlight of Sunday's activities is always the parade, which will start at 12:00 Noon sharp. There is no cost to enter
the parade and entries are asked to line up near the Lakewood Cemetery on Sunday morning. Every local business,
youth group, lake association, organization, and other interested individuals and groups are encouraged to put an entry
into the parade. Prizes will be awarded for the best parade entries.

The Lakewood Area Chamber of Commerce and the Mardi Gras Organizing Group are making a great effort to offer
something for everyone and make the weekend the premium weekend of the summer. Mark your calendars and we hope
to see you there. Have a great summer.
