Sconniewood – A Student Film Fest That’s Inspiring Young Leaders in the Green Bay Area

Sconniewood youth film festival

How do you encourage young people in Northeast Wisconsin to step up and be innovators, leaders and creative artists?

Can we show them the untapped talents they already possess? Is there a way to empower students with the confidence they need to take risks, solve problems and see a project through from idea to completion?

That’s the goal of a brand new film festival taking place in our area this November.

The Downtown Green Bay Kiwanis club is spearheading the Sconniewood Youth Film Festival. It’s a special project that falls right in line with the mission of the Kiwanis – which is building a better community by supporting schools, families, youth programs and other local organizations.

But this time the Kiwanis Club of Green Bay – Downtown is going beyond providing support and taking matters into their own hands.

Saint Hubert’s Shrine in Marinette County: A Wisconsin Hunting Tradition

Deer-Season St Hubertus

Whether you’re a hunter or not, in Wisconsin when the temperature starts to drop and the leaves start to change color people start thinking camouflage, blaze orange and deer. The Second Week of Deer Camp and Da Turdy Point Buck can be heard playing on the radio.  Hunters start to gear up and hunters’ widows plan their weekends together. Hunting is part of life in northern Wisconsin.

Every hunter has their own traditions and rituals as they start to prepare for the hunt; getting hunting licenses, preparing shotguns and rifles, digging out blaze-orange snowsuits and poring over maps. And don’t forget heading ‘up north’ to the family hunting shack or deer camp. The preparation and excitement can be a tradition in itself.

There’s another tradition in Wisconsin’s Marinette County- Saint Hubert’s Shrine and its annual mass to bless the hunting season.
