HARSHAW - The Rhinelander scholarship golf scramble held its seventh annual outing at the Pinewood Country Club on Saturday. The event is put on by members of the RHS Class of 1980, and has raised $22,000 dollars since 2011. Outing coordinator Dave Robinson says it's all about giving back.
"We can give back to the community that we graduated from, that was the biggest thing, and we kind of said, why didn't we start this years ago?," said Robinson.
The scramble raises money through golf participants and raffle items. Last year's outing was rained out but the raffle and donations still raised $6,000. Robinson says he hopes another class of graduates might get involved going forward.
"I would like somebody in a younger class, we're the class of 1980, if we could get somebody out there that would want to take it over, maybe a class of '90 or class of '95 or class of 2000, if we've got somebody around here who wants to take it over I'd gladly help them get it going and keep going with it," said Robinson.
The cost to play is $75 per person and there are four players per team. For more information on the scramble, click on the link below.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
