Winterfest Updates

First of all, we are showing the movie at the Wagbo Peace Center, not at the library as previously mentioned. We will be borrowing a projector so that we can watch it Big Screen! Light refreshments will be served. The time is the same, 6:00 pm.

Also, if it is cold or windy Saturday evening, come out anyways! We will have an alternate activity planned if the weather forbids us from going on our nature hike. We will show episodes of Jim Henson's The Storyteller, an excellent rendition of old European folktales that's fun for all ages.

New Addition to the Family

Interested in buying eggs?
Wagbo recently received a donation of nine laying hens and a rooster! The chickens have so far been giving 5 eggs a day, and this amount is split in half with their current intern caretakers, Maria and Fischer. They will probably start laying more as they grow accustomed to their new home and as the daylight increases. If you're interested in purchasing eggs, please call the center at 231-536-0333 and leave a message, or email wagbo@torchlake.com The chickens are currently being fed a corn mash, and fruit and vegetable scraps, and we are in the process of obtaining organic feed.
