Robert and Mary Wakely, early central Wisconsin pioneers, were noted for their mid-winter parties held at their hotel located along the Wisconsin River just south of present day Nekoosa. Today, the Wakelys' home is open as a living history center called Historic Point Basse.

The Citizens of Point Basse, volunteers who operate the site, are keeping many of the early traditions alive, including a fun-filled dinner and dance called Wakely's Winter Feast. The 2013 edition will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Knights of Columbus hall on Highway 13 North, Wisconsin Rapids. The evening will begin with the gathering, from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., an informal time to enjoy some hot cider and snacks and renew old acquaintances and make new ones. At 5 p.m., a home cooked pioneer feast featuring domestic and wild game dishes will be served, including baked chicken, baked ham with all the trimmings and bread pudding for dessert. The evening will also include music and dancing.

Tickets cost $15 and are available at Family Natural Foods or from any Citizen of Point Basse. This is one of the primary fundraising events for Point Basse, and it is a great opportunity to learn how you can become more involved in this great organization. For more information, call 715-424-1656 or 715-423-3120.
