Visiting a different part of America, some Maryland 4-Hers got a good taste of fresh cheese, the best milk and some Wisconsin adventures. Grant County 4-Hers hosted nine Marylanders for a week. On their week agenda in Wisconsin was tubing on the river, touring dairy farms, visiting Wisconsin Dells and, of course, a trip to Culver’s.

Each 4-H group signed up online for a few states they wished they could visit. The Wisconsin group emailed the Maryland group first. When each group agreed to visit the other, the dates were chosen, times were marked and schedules were created.
The Marylanders arrived in Wisconsin on June 23, in Milwaukee. The group traveled to Madison where they met up with the Grant County 4-Hers and took a stroll up and down State Street. From Madison, the Marylanders headed to Grant County to see their Wisconsin homes. The following day, they began their Wisconsin experience.

‘That’ll be the day’ July 16

Johnny Rogers’ “Buddy and Beyond” tour will visit Prairie du Chien Thursday, July 16 at Huckleberry’s. This concert will highlight the great oldies, bring back memories and get your feet tappin’ to the beat.

The Jim Juve Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame Production will have musical pieces from Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Elvis, The Beatles and more. Performer Johnny Rogers is especially good at Buddy Holly impressions, so good Buddy’s immediate family and band endorse him. Rogers knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life after his radio personality father gave him a guitar for Christmas and “Rave On” hit the radio; he wanted to be like Buddy. He performs these concerts in honor and tribute of the rock ‘n’ roll legends.

There is a limited number of tickets for the 1956 Buddy Holly Summer Dance Tour at Huckleberry’s, July 16. For more information and reservations, call Huckleberry’s at 326-5488
