Friends of Ruth Culver holding golf outing


The Friends of the Ruth Culver Community Library are excited to be back hosting their 12th annual Golf Outing, Silent Auction and Dinner, after taking off a year due to the pandemic. This fun and important day will be on September 8, 2021 at the Lake Wisconsin Country Club. All proceeds will be donated to the Ruth Culver Community Library in Prairie du Sac. For the past 12 years through the leadership of the Friends group and many volunteers, this event has continued to this day. It has raised over $103,000 which has been donated to the library for many uses ranging from initial construction costs, books, CDS, programming and new furniture and equipment. Lauren White, Library Director of the Ruth Culver Community Library, emphasizes the important role of the Friends Group: “Annual contributions from the Friends of the Ruth Culver Community Library are vital to our operations. Without their support, we would not be able to sustain the level of programming that we do or supply our patrons with the volume of materials that we presently hold. The Friends help us provide an elevated level of service to our patrons and help us create a loved, well-used, and educational facility for area residents. They are champions for advocacy and education, two vital components to a thriving library. We are so lucky to have such an active and engaged Friends group!” Please plan to attend and be part of this year’s dinner, golf outing, and silent auction Non-golfers are more than welcome to join us for dinner and the silent auction. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at the Lake Wisconsin Country Club. Registration for golf starts at noon, shotgun start for the scramble at 1:00, dinner, silent auction and prizes at 6:00. For further information, sponsorship opportunities, silent auction donations, and registration forms, contact Meagan Statz at the Ruth Culver Community Library at 608-643-8318 or mstatz@pdslibrary.org, or stop in at the library at 540 Water Street in Prairie du Sac.

RMF featuring Evan Riley Band


The Rural Musicians Forum (RMF) concert on Monday, August 9, at 7:30 p.m. will now feature the Evan Riley Band instead of The Mosaic Chamber Players due to a scheduling conflict. The Evan Riley Band is an acoustic rock band with a fresh and delightfully unexpected blend of folk and rock styles, appealing to audiences of all ages. Their mix of acoustic and electric guitars, strings, trumpet, accordion, eclectic percussion and rich vocal harmonies is a rarely-heard musical palette. In addition to performing original songs, the band covers many popular tunes from the 70’s to today. Hailing from upstate New York, band leader Evan Riley (guitar, vocals) draws upon influences of Eddie Vedder, Glen Hansard, and Martin Sexton.  Evan’s skillful guitar playing and well-crafted song writing result in vibrant music that speaks to the soul. Lassoing in their training in classical and jazz styles, artists Jamie Sercombe (trumpet, accordion, vocals, keyboards), Michael Mood (bass, vocals, keyboards), Todd Thompson (drums, cajon, percussion), and Marie Pauls (violin, vocals) complete this ensemble of seasoned performers.  The concert will be held at the Mazomanie Performing Arts Pavilion in downtown Mazomanie. Concertgoers should bring their own chairs and refreshments.  No tickets are needed - a free will offering will be taken. The Mosaic Chamber Players, originally scheduled for August 9, will be rescheduled in the 2022 season.  RMF, formed more than 30 years in River Valley, will present a final August concert on Monday, August 16, featuring the Twa Dogs, playing Celtic folk music.  The final concert of the season will be held in September in the Town of Wyoming as well.  More information at ruralmusiciansforum.org.
