You know what?



Hard to believe, isn't it?


Put on a happy face!

Put on a silly hat.

It's party time!

We are kicking off the year with a Celebration Banquet on Thursday, October 6, at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc.

All Storytellers, past and present, their families, and all former Hatrack Kids are invited.

Mark your calendars and tell your friends.

You bring a dish to pass; beverages and utensils will be provided.

After our feast (let's face it...pot lucks are the best), you will be entertained by a special group of storytellers presenting ADULT stories (now, don't go there...this is a family event, you know!)

Make reservations by contacting Diane Hansen at 920-682-3194 or

Hope to see YOU there!

Well, never let it be said that Hatrack doesn't respond to a challenge! A week ago today (Thursday), I received a call from the Navy/Marine Corps Center in Green Bay; they are planning a deployment on Saturday, July 17. Could Hatrack come to entertaine about 53 youngsters, ages 1-19, so the parents can concentratate on instructions? Well, 9 days notice for that age range seemed impossible at first thought. But then I realized how many talented people read, at no charge, and often with short notice, for Hatrack, so I said sure; we'd be there.

After one marathon rehearsal of two for the younger kids and one for the older.........these 6 talented readers will be going to Green Bay this Saturday: Chuck Allger, Damon Ryan Cattani, Mary Cattani, Bob Franke, Pam Ford, and Susie Miller, with me tagging along to keep things running. This program is sponsored by the Red Cross, and we are so pleased to be able to do something for our troops.

P.S. I hadn't remembered that I'd already talked about the Riverview School program the last time I blogged. Please pardon the superfluidity!
