THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crooked Lake Annual Oktoberfest is Oct. 14
The eighth Annual Oktoberfest at Crooked Lake is on Saturday Oct. 14, sponsored by the Crooked Lake/Mountain Lions Club. The event will take place on the grounds of the Community Center, located just nine miles east of Mountain and 20 miles west of Crivitz on Highway W, starting at 11 a.m. Persons can stroll through the beer garden and shop for craft items. The kids will have free pumpkin decorating and young and old alike can participate in the minnow races. The popular meat raffle will begin at noon.
There will be several free wagon rides through picturesque Crooked Lake and children can "put out a fire" with the help of the Volunteer Fire Department. A dinner consisting of roasted pig, stuffing, sauerkraut, German potato salad, baby reds, applesauce and Black Forest torte or Bavarian cream will be served inside the Community Center from 1 - 5 p.m.
Music will be supplied by a favorite local disc jockey, Whitey. Advance dinner tickets are available for $9 from any Crooked Lake Lions member and tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $5 for children 10 years and younger, and children 5 years and younger are free.
Proceeds will be used for scholarships, local food pantry and a donation to the Lions Camp in Rosholt for cognitively disabled children. For more information or to reserve a craft space, contact Cassie at (715) 276-6196.
