Exploring Wisconsin by canoe
Winchester Academy will present the life and travels of an 18th-century voyageur at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 25, at the Waupaca Area Public Library.
The featured speaker, M. Richard Tully, spent nearly 20 years trying to discover the origins of his hometown’s name, Baraboo. The culmination of that research is A Man Called Baraboo, Tully’s illustrated account of a French Canadian who explored the rivers of Wisconsin in a birch bark canoe more than 250 years ago.
Sponsored by Marilyn and Bob Olson, the program is free and open to the public.
