space
The northwoods is welcoming spring.

The opening of the Major League Baseball season and the turning of the calendar all means that winter's grasp is easing, maple sap is running, and its time to shake off the doldrums and celebrate.

A look at events, taken from the Journal's advertising columns, follows:

ON GOLDEN POND

The Wabeno Players troupe is staging “On Golden Pond” at Madonna Hall in Wabeno.

The curtain rises at 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday and again on March 28, 29 and 30. There is also a matinee on Saturday at 1 p.m. matinees at 1 p.m. this Sunday and on March 30.

“WRITTEN OFF”

Wabeno Area Players Fine Arts Series will present “Written Off,” a gripping tale that challenges the stigma of opiod addiction, Thursday at 7 p.m.

The film chronicles the life of Matthew Edwards, a Crandon High School graduate, whose addiction to opioids began at age 15 after being prescribed pain medicine for a minor surgery. His grippingly honest writing reveals the secrets he tried so hard to conceal throughout a decade long struggle to escape addiction. Matthew's mother, Jane Funk, currently a teacher at Crandon High School, published the book “What I Couldn't Tell you: One Man's Struggle with Opioid Addiction” in June of 2017 and worked with filmmakers Molly Hermann and Rob Lyall on the “Written Off” documentary.

The Wabeno Area Players, Community Coalition of Forest County, and the Forest County Health Department, will host the screening at the Nancy Volk Auditorium, Wabeno High School. The screening is recommended for ages 14 and up. Admission is free and no registration is required.

At these screening, there will also be a mock “Teen Bedroom” set up for anyone over the age of 18 to view. This mock bedroom will contain items or clues that are “hidden in plain sight” that might indicate drug or alcohol use.
