Volunteers at the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry need your help.
They want a new logo.
"We're hoping there's a number of artists in the area who would like to take a shot at that and be creative and come up with a new logo that we could then use. It would be on the sign on the building, it would be on the letterhead, it would be used all over the places that we have events or things like that," said Bill Vancos of the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry.
They're looking for simple logos that can be printed in both color and black and white.
The logos should also have the name, "Rhinelander Area Food Pantry" or "RAFP" on them.
It should also include food items or a grocery shopping image in it.
The pantry gave out more than 469,000 pounds of food last year.
They want to distribute even more this year.
Volunteers hope a new logo will make people more aware of their purpose.
"Normally we're out with our hat in our hand asking for donations or something. This is kind of a little bit on the side. It's just hopefully a more fun event that again will just help us in the future as we identify ourselves as we're out and about in the community," added Vancos.
People can submit their designs to the food pantry though April 30th.
HAWKINS - You could face challenges trying to get kids to sit down and read during summer. But kids in Hawkins believe they're doing more than reading this summer. It's all part of a country wide theme called Fizz, Boom, Read.
"The whole idea is to get kids excited about reading, to keep them coming to the library to check out great books, and hopefully have some happy teachers at the end of the summer," says Hawkins Library Director Arlene Mabie.
LAND O' LAKES - Kids in Land O' Lakes will play cartoon characters discussing their life during a play Friday. Organizers hope this helps them to show their artistic side.
You can expect to hear great sounds at Land O' Lakes Elementary School Friday. Kids from ages 6 to 14 have been learning about the art of performance this summer. They'll play cartoon characters discussing their life on a talk show.
"It's been really amazing to come to the theatre program the last two years. The first year we probably had 60, 70 people. Last year we had 100 people come to the recital," said Land O Lakes Area Artisans treasurer Lynn Richie.
NORTHWOODS - It seems more all-natural and specialty food stores are popping up around the Northwoods. Antigo and Three Lakes welcomed new all-natural and specialty food stores this year. And last week, Eagle River welcomed one, as well.
"We were painstaking about finding things that you cannot find at other shops here in the Eagle River area," said Homeward Bound Specialty Foods owner Patti Katz Black. She and her husband, Dave, opened their Eagle River store last week.
MOLE LAKE - Health workers often face different challenges on the Sokaogon Chippewa reservation in Mole Lake compared to elsewhere in the Northwoods.
"I think they're a little different. We have a (few) more challenges. Sometimes, for a lot of people, it's more crisis than prevention, or preventative services," said Tammy Queen, who works at the Sokaogon Chippewa Health Clinic. "A lot of times, they'll come in when something's bad instead of coming in before something gets really bad."
On Thursday, the tribe wanted to get people thinking about their health before problems occur.
