Lagers and Loggers dinner returns as historical society fundraiser
FOR THE GAZETTE
STEVENS POINT – Roll out the barrels and round up your finest flannel for the second year of the Portage County Historical Society’s premier fundraising dinner.
Presented by the Boldt Company, “Lagers and Loggers” pairs the food of longstanding Rockman’s Catering with beer from Point Brewery, Stevens Point’s oldest company, and one of the nation’s oldest breweries. The event will take place on Oct. 4 starting at 5 p.m. at the historic Pfiffner Building located at 401 Franklin Street in Stevens Point. This three-course dinner will feature hearty fall fare, with beers that complement each flavor. Additionally, live bluegrass music from Art Stevenson and Dale Reichert will keep guests entertained before and after the dinner, sponsored by Heartland Custom Homes.
“Last year was a major success for this event and the Historical Society,” says PCHS Executive Director John Harry. “We’re looking to build on that momentum so we can offer even more local history programming and resources to the community.” Harry will give an address during the festivities updating guests on the progress and goals of PCHS’s educational programs.
Additionally, Section 715 Axe Throwing will be on site before dinner and guests will have their chance to play Hammerschlagen to really get into the evening’s theme. There will also be a wide array of items and baskets available through a silent auction.
Guests are encouraged to wear their very best lumberjack flannel attire. Tickets for “Lagers and Loggers” are extremely limited and on sale now via pchswi.org/lagers. You must be 21 or older to attend. Any questions can be emailed directly to Executive Director John Harry at [email protected].
