Three Lakes High School holds first Pink Day
THREE LAKES - Grey and dreary skies couldn't keep Three Lakes High School students inside today. Students walked around the track wearing their best pink outfit.

It was all part of the school's first Pink Day. It raised money for Pink Ribbon Riders. It's a local charity supporting both women and men with breast cancer.

"Since it was just October, we wanted to show our support somehow because we do have kids in the school who either have moms, or kids know somebody in the school, that have breast cancer," says Isabella Devereaux, FBLA Vice President.

Pink Day was put on by the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club. But almost all the school took part in it.

"It was really good," said Peyton Radaj, FBLA Secretary.
"Yeah, I think it went really well," says Isabella Devereaux.
"It was good," said Abby Zielke, FBLA President.
"Way better than we thought," said Devereaux.
"Its cool going to a small school because everyone rallies together like that, like....we're all there for each other. Yeah!" said Radaj and Devereaux.

The day also included a raffle. All the money raised goes to the Pink Ribbon Riders. The school raised around $900.

RHINELANDER - Local organizations got the chance to give back to their communities at Saturday's Fall Fest.

 This year it also gave a mother and daughter the chance to get even closer than they were before. 

During Fall Fest on Saturday Nicole Fondie felt a little déjà vu watching her daughter. 

"It's neat to repeat it and see her grow with it," said Nicole. 

As a child Nicole was involved with the girl scouts, but this is her first year as a troop leader to her daughter Zoey's Girl Scouts troop.

"It gives them an opportunity to give back to other people and give back to their communities," said Nicole.
This year the scouts volunteered at Fall Fest. 

"Very proud of her, seeing everything she does, and the way she likes to interact with people," said Nicole.

RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.

Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.

The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.

The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.

"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
