Bring on Spring!

We’re itching to get out on the lake, but mother nature seems to have a different idea! It may still be a little chilly, but we’re going to heat things up downtown with sidewalk sales, refreshments and give-aways! The event is Saturday May 5th from 12pm to 4pm, which is also the weekend of fishing opener. So put those poles away for a couple hours and join the local businesses in celebrating the end of winter! IdleWild Outfitters will be having a find the walleye contest where you can win prizes just for coming into the store and having keen eyes!

If you have any questions please feel free to call IdleWild Outfitters at (715) 822-2423 or visit the event page on FaceBook here.

Some of you readers might already know but we will be losing a beloved member of the team this season, Tia Bismonte-Duncan. We will dearly miss Tia as she starts a new chapter in her life, taking advantage of the opportunities as they arise and never backing down from a challenge. She has been a wonderful addition to the team here at IdleWild and its hard to imagine what it will be like without her. Though IdleWild was not her only venture in our community, maintaining Laird Church out by Grenquist Lake and also being a top notch chef with raving reviews across the state, we know IdleWild was always her happy place. We wish you the best with your future endeavors and hope that you get a chance to come back and join the IdleWild party every now and then!
