Wisconsin Bucket List Challenge

On Thursday, August 15th the library welcomed Kelly Jo Stull, author of The Wisconsin Bucket List, and hosted a cookout to kick off our very own Lester Public Library of Arpin "Wisconsin Bucket List Challenge."

Over the next twelve months, we will explore this vast state of incredible opportunities. Some can be done right here in your own hometown, such as sporting a cheesehead and cheering on our favorite team. Others will take you on the open road as you explore historical sites, beautiful parks, and interesting places you may never know existed. And of course let's not forget to mention the food. What would a good road trip be without tasting a little of the local fare?

Some of the bucket list items require a bit of effort. Others let you sit back, relax, and simply enjoy the scenery... what better time to curl up with a good book and let time slip away! Whatever your pace, it's yours to set. there are no required stops and you won't be graded. It's not a race, but a journey. You determine the course you will take and what you will do when you get there. Along the way, take some pictures and send them our way through email. We will post them on this and our Facebook page so everyone can share in your experiences. We'll meet up again next fall and swap stories of interesting people, funny moments, and places you many have discovered that didn't make our list, but are definitely worth a try.

The most important item to put on any bucket list? Time. Take it and create some memories that will last a lifetime!

Participants are encouraged to check off as many bucket list items as they choose from the library's bucket list, available now at the library! Pick one up today!
