The Amish Project coming to The Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre
3/13/2014 - Add a comment

The Amish Project, a play based on the tragic events of the Nickel Mines shooting in Lancaster, PA in 2006, is coming to the Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre March 29 - 30.

The play is both performed and written by Jessica Dickey. Tickets for The Amish Project can be reserved by calling WRCT’s Box Office at 715-421-0435. Ticket prices will be $10 for WRCT’s subscribers and $12 for non-subscribers.

The play is inspired by the killing of five girls in a hostage-taking at an Amish school in Lancaster County, Pa., in October 2006, yet beyond a few facts drawn from the incident, it is fictional; the characters are imagined by Ms. Dickey.

Marion, WI Amish Consignment Auction Saturday, June 7th, 2014
2/19/2014 - Add a comment

The Marion, WI Amish Consignment Auction will be held on Saturday, June 7th, 2014. If you would like to see photos of last year's auction, please see the Marion WI Amish Auction photo gallery

Last year they offered a fantastic pancake breakfast. Be sure to try their "Dutch honey" on your pancakes. Most likely the pancake breakfast will start at 7am and end at 9am. There will also be lunch food available for purchase after that. When I receive more information, I will be sure to update. 

If you are planning on getting there early in the morning and need a place to stay the night before, I highly suggest the Cobblestone Hotel in Clintonville. The auction is only a short drive (around 10 minutes) from this hotel. 

Auction Location

Lester Lambright Farm
N10405 St. Rd 110
Marion, WI 54950

The Lester Lambright Farm is located south of Marion on Hwy. 110 on the west side of the highway. Be sure to watch for the auction signs. 

Payment accepted is cash and check with positive identification. The line to get your bid number can get quite long. I would suggest getting that first.
