Ring the bell for the Salvation Army over the holidays? Have a Christmas tree to burn? This is your week to shine.

The Salvation Army's appreciation dinner and the Antigo Optimist Club's annual Christmas tree burn will cap the holiday season over the next several days.

Also on the docket are an art reception for the final sale of Vavruska paintings, youth bowling and a bit more.

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

BOWLING

Youngsters are invited to strike up some fun at North Star Lanes.

The Winter Bumper League will start Saturday at 10:30 a.m., with the five-week season going through Feb. 15.

The league is open to fourth and fifth graders. Total cost for one season is $30, including shoe rental. Parents should call 715 627-4325 to sign up.

BELL RINGERS DINNER

The Salvation Army will host a bell ringers appreciation dinner on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Faith United Church of Christ.

All bell ringers and their families are invited to join for food and fellowship. If you like, bring a salad , dish or dessert to pass.

CHRISTMAS TREE BURN

The Antigo Optimist Club invited everyone to bring the family to the annual community Christmas tree burn on Monday, 5:30 to 7 p.m., in south parking lot at Antigo High School.

The city has been picking up trees all week, adding to the immense pyre at the school. There will also be sledding and of course free hot dogs and hot chocolate served by Optimist members.

VAVRUSKA ENCORE

Antigo Visual Arts is ready for its encore.

The group, known as AVA, held a benefit art auction this past summer, featuring the work of Antigo Artist Frank Vavruska. The auction was the brain child and was chaired by AVA board member Fran Brown, who headed a committee of four AVA artists who worked out all of the details.

Now Brown has spearheaded a Vavruska Encore. Not an auction, but a collection and sale of Vavruska's art that, for one reason or another, was not offered at the auction.

There will be an opening public reception Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the museum, 404 Superior St., Antigo. The pieces will now hang in the AVA Gallery from Jan. 11 until March 7.

Twenty-five percent of the monies collected at this show will be returned to the museum to assist with its renovation project.

PANCAKE BREAKFAST

The Antigo Knights of Columbus will hold a pancake breakfast Sunday, 8 to 11:30 a.m., at a new location, the basement of SS. Mary and Hyacinth Catholic Church, 819 Third Ave.

It's still the same great menu, with all-you-can-eat buttermilk and potato pancakes, Peroutka's pork sausages, coffee milk and orange juice.

Cost is $8 for adults and $4 for children seven to 10, free for youngsters under six. Bring the ad from Thursday's Antigo Daily Journal and get $1 off your group's total bill.

HISTORY, THE ARTS

The Langlade County Historical Society Museum is open Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The complex includes the Carnegie library building, Deleglise Cabin and 440 locomotive and caboose. It is located at 404 Superior St. The society is in the midst of a major fundraising campaign to install an elevator and make other necessary and aesthetic improvements. Stop by the museum to pick up a brochure.

The White Lake Area Historical Society operates the Depot Museum and Historical Center in White Lake. Hours are Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

MOVIES

Now showing at the Palace Twin Theater are “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” rated PG-13, and “Little Women,” rated PG.

For showtimes and a full movie listing, go to www.antigotheatre.com, Facebook Palace Theater or check the movie line at 715-627-0222.
