AUGUST FUN FACTS:
August was named in honor of Augustus Caesar. It has 31 days because Augustus wanted as many days as Julius Caesar’s month of July had. (They took that extra day from February) Previously names Sextilis in Latin, it was the sixth month of the Roman calendar.
Birthstone: Peridot
Flower: Gladiolus and Poppy
August is also related to the work “auger”, a hole digging tool, because farmers dug for next season at this time every year.

JULY FUN FACTS:
Fourth of July is a holiday to look forward to every year! Full of outside, summer fun, barbecued foods, and firework displays. Behind all of that, however, is history! In celebration of our nation’s Independence Day, here are 10 fun facts and pieces of trivia:
1. John Hancock was the only member of the Continental Congress to formally sign the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.
2. The Fourth of July was not declared a federal holiday until 1938.
3. The first White House Fourth of July party was held in 1804.
4. Around 150 million hot dogs are consumed on Fourth of July (wonder if this statistic includes the hot dogs consumed during the annual Nathan’s Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest?)
5. Back in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed, 2.5 million new people lived in the U.S. Now 240 years later, 311 million people live.
6. The now American-celebrated song, Yankee Doodle, was originally written by officers of the British army to make fun of backwoods Americans.
7. Three United States presidents died on the Fourth of July: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe.
8. July 4th is also celebrated in the Philippines, because in 1946, the country was recognized as an independent nation.
9. In one year, $600 million is spent on fireworks alone in the U.S.
10. Most of the signers of the Declaration did not formally sign until August 2, 1776.

NEBAGAMON COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION:
Throughout this newsletter there are comments and words about our mission statement, meetings, the NCA etc. We really need to get word out and get some members involved. No need to feel you need to be at each meeting but we need volunteers and bodies to help with the events in our area. It seems groups, clubs, civic organizations and public service is a thing of the past. Lake Nebagmon has so much to offer in our area but it’s the same people doing so much to try to keep things alive. If you find you have any ideas or time you would like to be involved this is a perfect way to jump on board. As a group we have decided to have our monthly meetings at area businesses. Our meetings are usually about an hour, but we have so much on the agenda to provide fun events and things to make the community strong and keep things active. 2018 Forth of July fireworks were amazing! So much postie feedback came from the entire community. We want to keep events such as this going, and going strong. We have some very busy activities during the summer and could always use more ideas and help. We set up vendors in the auditorium last year and again there was wonderful feedback. We have been having more and more reserve spaces to come join this vendor area and those from last year to return. Free skating at the auditorium has been a hit this winter and we plan to keep this alive thru April and then take a break thru summer and hoping to return again in September. Again looking for volunteers to work the concession stand and to be around to hand out skates and play the games as we have been doing the “Limbo”, “Corner Game”, “Hula Hoop Contest”, some mad skills needed for “Red Light, Green Light.” The children that have been coming sure have a great time. Lets see if we can have more involvement to keep this all going strong. See you at Sidelines on Tuesday April 9, 2019 at 6pm.

MARCH FUN FACTS:
It’s March—Happy New Year, ancient Romans! Welcome to the third month of the year—or, if you were born before 150 B.C., the first! According to the oldest Roman calendars, one year was ten months long, beginning in March and ending in December. It may sound crazy, but you can still see traces of this old system in our modern calendar: because December was the tenth month, it was named for the number ten in Latin (decem), just like September was named for seven (septem). So, what about January and February? They were just two nameless months called “winter,” proving that winter is literally so awful it doesn’t even deserve a spot on the calendar. With the recent weather we have been getting seems fitting to skip over January and February.

FIRE DEPARTMENT FUNDRAISER:
Due to current weather conditions one of many events have had to cancel and or postpone and revamp the original plan. This includes the annual Bridges Polar Plunge Fundraiser for our Lake Nebagamon Fire Department. This is become a very important event for our local department. There will still be the fundraiser on Sunday March 3, 2019. **Since we are not able to jump in the lake this year we would still like to show support and have a fundraiser for the LN Fire Department. Join us this Sunday at 1pm for some food, fun, and prizes! We also figured it would be a great time to have some MINNOW RACES! We will have some great prizes so please join us. Bridge’s Bar will be donating 20% of the sales that day also so come have some drinks;)**

BOOK ACROSS “BAGAMON”:
Cancelled… Another event that was in the planning has been cancelled due to ice and weather conditions. Sorry for all those that have asked to have this returned again this year. Mother Nature has taken control and we have had no choice but to say “better luck next year.”

ST PATRICKS DAY FACTS:
Saint Patrick
Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Much of what is known about Saint Patrick comes from the Declaration, which was allegedly written by Patrick himself. It is believed that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the Declaration, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland. It says that he spent six years there working as a shepherd and that during this time he “found God”. The Declaration says that God told Patrick to flee to the coast, where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After making his way home, Patrick went on to become a priest.

According to tradition, Patrick returned to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. The Declaration says that he spent many years evangelizing in the northern half of Ireland and converted “thousands”. Patrick’s efforts against the druids were eventually turned into an allegory in which he drove “snakes” out of Ireland (Ireland never had any snakes).
Tradition holds that he died on 17 March and was buried at Downpatrick. Over the following centuries, many legends grew up around Patrick and he became Ireland’s foremost saint.

Celebration and traditions
According to legend, Saint Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans.
Today’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations have been greatly influenced by those that developed among the Irish diaspora, especially in North America. Until the late 20th century, St Patrick’s Day was often a bigger celebration among the diaspora than it was in Ireland.

Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, Irish traditional music sessions (céilithe), and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. There are also formal gatherings such as banquets and dances, although these were more common in the past. St Patrick’s Day parades began in North America in the 18th century but did not spread to Ireland until the 20th century. The participants generally include marching bands, the military, fire brigades, cultural organizations, charitable organizations, voluntary associations, youth groups, fraternities, and so on. However, over time, many of the parades have become more akin to a carnival. More effort is made to use the Irish language, especially in Ireland, where the week of St Patrick’s Day is “Irish language week”.

Christians may also attend church services, and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day. Perhaps because of this, drinking alcohol – particularly Irish whiskey, beer, or cider – has become an integral part of the celebrations. The St Patrick’s Day custom of “drowning the shamrock” or “wetting the shamrock” was historically popular, especially in Ireland. At the end of the celebrations, a shamrock is put into the bottom of a cup, which is then filled with whiskey, beer, or cider. It is then drunk as a toast to St Patrick, Ireland, or those present. The shamrock would either be swallowed with the drink or taken out and tossed over the shoulder for good luck.

Record breaking temps warning those with children and animals to take special care and safety during this time.

FREE ROLLER SKATING:
The NCA sponsored free roller skating every other Sunday has been growing each time. January 20th we had the most skaters since we started. We have also started a small concession stand with treats during skating as a way to help earn some funds to upgrade our skates and keep this growing so more adults and children can have use of available skates/blades. Any donations of skates or blades may be dropped off at the auditorium during regular hours or during skating days.

It has been decided that we will continue the “Book across “Bagamon” on Saturday, March 2.

K.I.N. UPDATE:
K.I.N. has again gone over and above to help so many families enjoy a Christmas in a way they may not have been able to afford without this help during the season. A huge thank you to those that participated in any way for this project. Shopping, food and gift donations and your time spent helping with passing out goodies and helping these families.

CHRISTMAS PARTY AND TREE LIGHTING:
December 2, 2018 was a pretty chilly day around here in Nebagamon, but we had a great turn out for our annual tree lighting. Over 60 people met at the auditorium to await Santa and Ms. Clause’s arrival. We then boarded our hay ride and rode through the streets of the town to head up to a warm cozy fire and cookies and hot cocoa. At this time children were able to visit with the Clause family and sing some Christmas carols. As the community can see the tree was then lit and has remained lit through the month of December. We have plans to add lights and activities for next year so any of those interested can contact Patti at Dockside (715-374-2334) for details or to please share any ideas.

FREE ROLLER SKATING:
The Nebagamon Community Association has brought back free roller skating on Sunday afternoons every other weekend from 2pm-4pm. During the December 23rd skating day, we were able to provide a Christmas Party for those that came and served tacos in a bag, soda pop and Christmas cookies. It has been decided to begin a small concession stand with treats and beverages to help with cost of replacing skates and adding to our event funds. Those that have been taking part have been enjoying the time spent at the auditorium and are looking forward to keeping this going through the winter months. Thank you for all those that have joined in and helped get this up and running again. We will be taking any donations for roller blades or skates in any size, they can be dropped off at the auditorium or Dockside during regular business hours. We have some but could always use more sizes as we have been getting more interest from children and adults for this to continue.

FIRE CHIEF LETTER: Submitted by Jim Dawson
I WANT TO THANK ALL THE CITIZENS OF LAKE NEBAGAMON FOR THEIR SUPPORT IN THE LAST 25 YEARS OF ME BEING CHIEF OF THE LAKE NEBAGAMON VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT.

I WILL REMAIN ON THE DEPARTMENT AS A FIREFIGHTER AND FIRST RESPONDER TO HELP THE CITIZENS OF OUR COMMUNITY. AT THIS POINT MANY FIRE DEPARTMENTS IN DOUGLAS COUNTY ARE STRUGGLING DUE TO THE MANY MANDATES THAT ARE BEING PLACED ON THE VOLUNTEER DEPARTMENTS. CITIZENS NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE MANDATES AND ENCOURAGE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE VILLAGE BOARD TO WORK TOGETHER TO ENCOURAGE NEW VOLUNTEERS AND RETENTION OF THE PRESENT VOLUNTEERS.

At those meetings we also hold training classes and offer information for classes that are up and coming. Please remember with all this snow we have had “dumped” on us that we all need to help the department be able to find you in case of an emergency. To help with this, make sure you always keep your fire numbers cleaned off and available to be seen.

A JANUARY QUOTE:
“It is growing cold. Winter is putting footsteps in the meadow. What whiteness boasts that sun that comes into this wood! One would say milk-colored maidens are dancing on the petals of orchids. How coldly burns our sun! One would say its rays of light are shards of snow, one imagines the sun lives upon a snow crested peak on this day. One would say she is a woman who wears a gown of winter frost that blinds the eyes. Helplessness has weakened me. Wandering has wearied my legs.” ― Roman Payne

BRIDGES ANNUAL HUNTER FEED:
GRANDMA (Irene) BRIDGE WOULD BE PROUD!
Bridge’s Annual Ol’ Hunter’s Feed, held on opening day, was a big success!

Nothing made Grandma Bridge happier than cooking for people and Hunting Season was one of her favorite times of the year.

She was known for cooking any type of wild game! During hunting season there would be a constant stream of people bringing Grandma their game to cook while many others stopped by for whatever amazing meal she was serving that day, never an invite needed!

So, you can imagine how much she enjoyed the first day of Deer Hunting Season when she would have her Annual Hunters Feed. The tradition of feeding all the hungry hunters, after their first long day out, has been a highlight for 70 years at Bridge’s Bar!

Grandma Bridge would be so proud of the spread created by the Bridge’s Bar “Family” this year… Lindsey Wilson pulled it all together as well as making Stuffing, Potatoes, Gravy & veggies; Chris Mirwald roasted two large juicy turkeys and two honey hams; Anna Culhane whipped up a sweet potato casserole, Terri Graves made a green bean casserole, asian salad, and brought some of her delicious home canned goodies; Shelly Thompson made a Wild Rice Casserole, which was a staple on Grandma Bridge’s holiday table, and cranberry dessert; and Sharon Colton finished it off with her amazing homemade pies!

The food was bountiful and delicious. “It’s events like this, where our staff and customers come together, that warms my heart and makes Bridge’s such a special place” shared owner, Traci Bridge, “I’m so thankful for everyone involved who continues the traditions that generations of the Bridge family and customers have built.”

Join Bridge’s for next year’s Hunter’s Feed on Saturday, November 23rd at 7pm. Everyone is welcome, even non-hunters, there’s always plenty of food to share!

ANNUAL TURKEY TROT:
For at least the past 6 years a dedicated group meets in the morning hours on Thanksgiving morning to raise money for the BackPack Program for Students in the School District of Maple. This program is a service provided by the Northern Lakes Food Bank that provides for children in need. The mission of the BackPack Program is to meet the needs of hungry children by providing them with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food to take home on weekends and school vacations when other resources are not available. This year approximately over 40 men, women, children, and dogs met at the auditorium for the annual “turkey trot”. Donations raised through the trot were over $1,000 A matching grant will add another $1000. 100% of money raised will go to the Northern Lakes Food Bank BackPack Program. And donations are still coming in. Everyone was a winner! Watch for this event to come again and let see how many we can have take part. Choose your distance, NO clock, NO awards, NO t-shirts, No registration fee. Just a great time to be had.

A NICE RELAXING SEA CRUISE:
A native of Northern Wisconsin, Dale is a 1977 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, with a major in Speech Communication and a minor in Radio/Television/Film. He attended the University of Southern California Graduate School Program toward an MFA in screenwriting.

“I’ve always been fascinated by treasures, pirates and the sea: a sometimes-lethal combination,” he says. “The treasure of Lima Peru – which is real – first captured my attention as a junior in high school and cemented itself in my mind. I thought how neat it would be to board a sloop and sail into a treasure-hunting adventure. Two of my favorite authors growing up were Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Edgar Rice Burroughs. I loved their styles and their stories. The consummation of this fascination is, A NICE, RELAXING SEA CRUISE.”

“Dale S. Botten” Lake Nebagamon has released his first novel. How exciting from a local resident of our area. The Novel is available for purchase at Globe News, Douglas County Historical Society, Fitgers, Zenith, and Amazon. It can also be found on the shelves at Superior Public Library and Imogene McGrath Memorial Library as well. There is talk of having a book signing at Dockside to meet and support our local area writer. Be watching for details.

Dale became a resident of Lake Nebagamon during a snowstorm in December of 2007. Check out www.dalerbotten.com for more history of his prior publications, writing, screen plays, etc.
