WISCONSIN RAPIDS — The annual Outdoor Adventures Banquet will be held this year at Calvary Baptist Church on Friday, Feb. 23 and Saturday, Feb. 24.
The featured speaker this year is Jay Houston, big game hunter, author, Air Force veteran, and conference speaker. Jay captivates listeners of all ages with his transparent yet highly informative down-home style, using humor and object lessons from his experiences while pursuing majestic elk or elusive mule deer, or serving as Weapons Systems Officer on F-4 Phantom jet fighters. He has written seven highly successful books on elk hunting and is equally skilled hunting the high country with a bow or rifle.
The wild game dinner will include tasty appetizers, venison fajitas, fried fish, Italian sausage, soup, desserts and beverages. Those in attendance will enjoy excellent displays and booth opportunities, and be eligible for numerous door prizes.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.calvaryrapids.org or at the church office Monday through Friday from 9 AM until noon or 1 to 5 PM. The number of tickets available is limited.
Cost to attend is $10 per ticket. The doors will open at 5:00 PM, with dinner served at 6:00 PM both nights. Men and women, boys and girls ages 8 to adult are welcome.
Calvary Baptist Church is located at 469 Airport Ave.
