NEWP 2018 Annual Meeting - January 27

Legends Brewhouse and Eatery - De Pere, WI

2018 Annual Meeting

Legend's Brewhouse and Eatery will be the site of our 2018 annual meeting. The meeting will include three primary activities -- the club's annual business meeting and election of officers, two feature presentations and dinner.

Our featured presentations:

  • Martha Greene Phillips: Border Country, the Northwoods Canoe Journals of Howard Greene, 1906-1916

Hear Martha Greene Phillip's incredible tale of her father's early 1900s canoe trips to the north woods of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Canada as memorialized in his remarkable, handmade journals and amazing photographs and published in her new book. (More here... and here)  

Martha Greene Phillips, of Madison, Wisconsin, began writing after retirement from a career in the mental health field. Her first book, "The Floating Boathouses on the Upper Mississippi River," was self-published in 2009. With the success of that book, Martha was ready to take on the more personally significant task of working on her father’s journals. She worked for over five years on the project, researching the background of the journals, traveling to many of the locales in the Northwoods, interviewing family and friends, and going thorough family papers that shed light on the cast of characters that made up “The Gang” in the narrative.

  • Tom Schrader: The American Canoe Association - History, Vision and Value Today

The ACA is a service organization based on the principals of Education, Stewardship, Competition, Exploration, and Recreation. Hear a brief history of the ACA, the vision for the strategic principals, and what the ACA is doing today. 

Tom Schrader is the ACA Director for Wisconsin, and a whitewater paddler with the misfortune of being employed. When not getting wet, he masquerades as a competent IT Professional. Paddling since 2006, Tom has progressed from a recreational paddler to become an avid paddler and involved volunteer. He works extensively with Wausau Whitewater and teaches Whitewater kayaking on his own as an ACA certified instructor and with the Boy Scouts of America.

There is no cost to attend the business meeting or the presentations. There is a $15 charge per person for a robust family-style dinner served by the Legend's excellent staff.
