The annual Holiday Wine Tasting, organized by Cujak's Wine Market, will be held 5-7 pm Saturday, November 9, at Fox Valley Savings Bank. The event again will benefit the Fond du Lac Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten literacy program.
This year, the annual Fond du Lac Reads program celebrated the memoir, Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero, by Michael Hingson. The subject matter has inspired the November exhibit, A Dog’s Life, in the library’s Langdon Divers Gallery.
Forget about waking up at 3 a.m. to freeze in line at the mega-mart. Shop smarter this holiday season by attending Black Friday Boot Camp at 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
Kids ages 6 to 12 are invited to celebrate the release of the eighth Diary of a Wimpy Kid book at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s free party from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, November 1. Kids can just drop in at the McLane Room in the library’s lower level after school lets out early for the day to enjoy snacks, a movie, crafts and fun in a relaxed atmosphere.
Have you ever wondered about that thing you found while digging in the yard? Maybe it’s a piece of pottery or perhaps an ancient tool. Bring it to the November 4 meeting of the Fond du Lac Genealogical Society, when local Secrets of the Ledge author and “archeo-historian” Dwight Weiser will take a look.
