6th annual Community Picnic
Mark your calendars and join us for the 6th annual Community Picnic on Wednesday, August 2 in downtown Wisconsin Rapids. Come and celebrate what makes this community great – its people! The picnic features local food, beverages, and family fun, all at no charge.

Since we began the picnic in 2012, we’ve made modifications as we learn. Part of our picnic process is to seek out feedback from residents, volunteers, and partners and incorporate it into the following years. We’re happy to share that because of this feedback, this year’s food format has returned to a single menu. This will reduce time spent waiting in multiple lines for different food items, and allow you more time to spend visiting with neighbors. Come enjoy a pulled pork sandwich or hot dog, potato salad, side dishes, and dessert, and meet someone new!

Support the Tribune Building Project

Incourage is selling chrysalides and monarchs to benefit the Tribune Building Project. Not only is the transformation amazing to watch, but we’re also helping the decreasing monarch population. More information here!
Creating Breakout Innovation
We were honored to have the Tribune Building Project featured in Stanford Social Innovation Review’s recent article “Creating Breakout Innovation”. The research is about a new way of working – of collaborating for solutions – that delivers better results. Check it out!
