RHINELANDER - It's never too early to begin preparations for your county's annual fair.
Preparations have been underway for the last few months for Oneida County's 2019 Fair.
Fair Coordinator Tom Barnett has already booked multiple entertainment acts and he's currently organizing the popular "Sexiest Men's Legs In A Kilt" contest.
Now, he's looking for volunteers to help.
"We always need volunteers and this is the time of year we start asking people to start thinking about volunteering for the fair, which is a very rewarding experiencing," said Barnett.
He said he also wants to include more areas of the county to be part of the show.
"The Oneida County Fair is not just Rhinelander fair. It's Oneida County. So we are really looking to get areas like Minocqua and Three Lakes and the rest of the towns in Oneida County more involved with the fair," he said.
Barnett hopes people see the fair as a way to celebrate life in the Northwoods.
RHINELANDER - Salvation Army organizations across the country set out their red buckets and bells, including spots right in the Northwoods.
However, the local Mincoqua, Tomahawk and Rhinelander Salvation Armies are short of volunteers in the coming week.
Kettle Coordinator Kim Swisher said that last year, Rhinelander's Salvation Army surpassed their goal of $40,000 with help from volunteers. So this year, the organization is amping up the goal after raising $52,000 in 2018.
