Senior bingo party postponed by snow

The party originally scheduled for that afternoon has been rescheduled for 1:30-3 p.m. March 5 in the Algoma High School cafeteria. All senior citizens from the Algoma community are welcome.
Prizes will be awarded and food and drinks provided. The bingo party is sponsored by the Algoma High School Student Council.
Deer hunters donate venison to food pantries
Deer hunters around Kewaunee County gave hundreds of pounds of venison to local food pantries this past hunting season. The food pantry at Holy Rosary Church in Kewaunee issued a public thank you to both gun and bow hunters who provided venison through the Hunt for the Hungry program.
Hunters may either take their deer to a processor and/or voluntarily contribute additional money to support the program when they purchase their hunting licenses. Food pantries can then pick up the venison for distribution.
In Kewaunee County, Theys Processing in Casco does the processing. Brothers Dairy in Kewaunee helps by keeping the venison until the Holy Rosary food pantry needs it.
Entertainer Tom Pease to visit, perform
Children's entertainer Tom Pease is scheduled to visit Kewaunee Elementary School Feb. 19 for two school assemblies and a 6:30 p.m. Literacy Family Fun Night at the high school for kindergarten through fifth-grade students and their families.
Pease has been singing full-time for more than 30 years, doing about 200 programs annually, mostly in school settings.
"My philosophy on singing with kids and their families is I want to help that group find the feeling of community with song and laughter," Pease says on his website http://tompease.com. "I love celebrating the moment we're in while remembering the past and future of the world around us."
