The January thaw, which brought a few days of respite from bone-chilling conditions, has retreated and winter is back in full force, just in time for Monday’s Christmas tree burn.

After rather miserable and frankly strange conditions on Thursday, a more typical winter pattern has developed and that is bringing the usual lull in events across the region.

But there are a few things on the docket, including Monday’s tree burn, casino entertainment, dining in Elcho and of course the movie roundup at the Palace.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

TREE BURN

The annual community Christmas tree burn, hosted by the Antigo Optimist Club, is slated for Monday, and as usual conditions are expected to be chilly.

After a rather balmy week, temperatures are expected to dive into the single digits for the event, but the fire will certainly be large and warm.

This year’s holiday season capper will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the south parking lot at Antigo High School.

There will be free hot dogs and hot chocolate served by Antigo Optimist Club members and the local food pant

Time for a long winter’s nap?

Maybe, for some, but winter activities, both inside and out, are just heating up across the northwoods.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

BELL RINGERS DINNER

The Langlade County Salvation Army has had another record-setting year and it is time to celebrate.

An appreciation dinner for bell ringers of all ages and their families will be held on Sunday at 4 p.m. at Faith United Church of Christ.

There will be food and fellowship. If you wish, bring a salad, dish or dessert to pass.

NORTH STAR

Don’t tell Mohican North Star Casino Resort at Bowler that the winter doldrums have arrived. The upcoming entertainment schedule is sizzling.

On Saturday, stop down at 8 p.m. for Tribute to the King: An American Trilogy. Tickets are $20 and will showcase Elvis from 1956 through 1973.

Upcoming events include Josh Turner on Jan. 19, Michael Carbonaro on Feb. 3 and Peter Cetera on Feb. 16. The Jan. 12 REO Speedwagon concert is sold out.

The northwoods will say good-bye to 2017 and ring in 2018 with a variety of gala activities this weekend.

The holiday kicks off tonight with dining and music at Vickie and the Vets. The dedication of a new ski lodge at the Moccasin Trail, the focus of over a year of fund-raising, will continue the weekend Saturday afternoon, with the Wisconsin Badgers taking on the Miami Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl, and plenty of relayed festivities for local game-watching, in the evening.

Sunday will feature a spectacular round of dining and party opportunities and New Year’s Day on Monday begins with the Antigo Daily Journal’s baby watch awaiting the first arrival of the new year at Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

A look ahead, taken from the advertising columns, follows.

LODGE DEDICATION

After a successful fund-raising campaign, construction is complete on Michelle’s Lodge at the Moccasin Trail and it’s time to celebrate.

A dedication and grand opening ceremony will be held on Saturday, 1 to 4 p.m. There will be a chili dump, along with hot chocolate and other treats. Bring hot dogs or marshmallows for roasting over the bonfire.More

The pre-holiday hubbub is about done, and its time to sit back and enjoy Christmas.

There is still time to visit with Santa Claus. He is at the museum tonight and Saturday afternoon before resting up a bit prior to Christmas Eve.

And there will be several opportunities for family fun in the days ahead, including a community dinner on Monday, skating and swimming on Thursday and, next Saturday, Dec. 30, the dedication of the new Michelle’s Lodge at the Moccasin Trail.

A look ahead, taken from the advertising columns, follows.

SANTA AT MUSEUM

St. Nick has taken up residence at the Langlade County Historical Society Museum for regular visits with good little boys and girls and maybe a few who weren’t so good but want to make amends.

But time is short for a visit. Hours are tonight, 6 to 8 p.m.; and Saturday 1 to 4 p.m.

CHRISTMAS DINNER

Everyone is cordially invited to Community Christmas 2017, a delicious and festive holiday dinner, on Christmas Day, Monday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the North Star Banquet Facilities.

The diner is sponsored by the community at large. There is no admission fee and freewill d

In an unrelated case, reports showed an 18-year-old male was cited for disorderly conduct this morning, for his actions at Antigo High School.
