THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE

Re: To area and visiting friends:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who participated in the Barn Dance fundraiser at the Crivitz Museum on Saturday. It was heartening to see so many people come and enjoy the weather, gathering of friends, good food and hear the great music provided by the Party Boys and the Feel Good Kids. The line dance display from the North Country Kickers was a highlight of the afternoon. We were also pleased that so many of you took the opportunity to view our museum while you were there.
The Crivitz-Stephenson Historical Society collects, preserves, and displays historical artifacts from the towns of Stephenson, Lake and Middle Inlet as well as the Village of Crivitz. The Barn Dance held on Saturday was part of a $200,000 fundraising effort to add to our collection of historic buildings by relocating an early 1900's barn to our property. It will be used to house and display farm equipment that is currently displayed outside, as well as preserve for future generations how a barn used for dairy farming would have looked in our early history. The museum has been given a collection of mounted game from Don and Joanne Gould. We will be using part of the funds raised to erect a building to display this fine collection.
We thank all of those who have donated to the fundraiser. Anyone interested in donating can contribute by mail to the Crivitz-Stephenson Historical Society, PO Box 776, Crivitz WI, 54114.
Our event would not have been possible without the volunteer help that we received from members of the community and the gracious assistance provided by the Crivitz Firefighters Association, Crivitz Area Woman's Club, Crivitz Lions Club and the Village of Crivitz. We also thank the businesses and individuals who graciously contributed items for the bucket raffle. There were many happy recipients at the end of the evening!
On behalf of the Crivitz Museum, thank you to everyone for your help!
