The Remarkable Reynolds Family
The Forest Lodge Library is excited to announce an event scheduled for Tuesday, July 22nd, at 6:30 at the library; an evening showcasing the remarkably talented Reynolds family.
Those who are familiar with the name Rosie Reynolds likely know her as the Founder and Director of the Chequamegon Children's Theater. In "real life" Rosie Reynolds is a professional and award-winning actress and director who resides in San Diego, CA. She took home the Craig Noel Award for Excellence in Acting-Outstanding Lead Performance in a Play, Female, in both 2010 and 2011. Rosie has been married to Mike Reynolds, originally from Cable, since April 1, 1977.
Katie Rose Reynolds is the daughter of Rosie and Mike Reynolds. Katie spent a
dozen years participating in Chequamegon Children's Theater and has been CCT’s Lighting Director for several years. Katie graduated from Yale in Theater in 2007 and has been living in NYC where she pursues an acting career. Earlier in 2014 she spent some months as A Broad Abroad, traveling and working through Australia and New Zealand and writing an enormously entertaining and informative blog on her activities. She is currently visiting Cable and will soon return to NYC to perform in the play, “What the Butler Saw.”
Sidney Reynolds is a name well known in the area. The amazingly talented Sidney, daughter of Heather Ludzack, grand-daughter of Susan Reynolds and great-granddaughter of Cable's matriarch, Charlotte Reynolds, moved to Cable with her mother in 2001. Area residents and visitors have had many opportunities to enjoy her work in various CCT and Drummond School productions, as well as her appearances as a singer in various local venues. She is currently a resident of NYNY, where she studied acting and theater and is pursuing an acting career. Happily, she returns to Cable with some regularity and is assisting with this summer's CCT production as Musical Director.
You won't find this much talent in one room again anytime soon! These extraordinary women will share tales and talent and afterwards, those who wish may join us for a trip across the street to visit the Brick House Cafe for some dessert. The Brick House is owned and operated by yet another creative and talented member of the Reynolds family, Heather Ludzack.

21st Century Skills 2014
We are long past the dawn of the internet age. With each passing year, access to more resources and services is moved on-line. 21st Century essentials like an email address and internet navigational know-how are minimum basic requirements to accomplish just about anything.
In a continuation of a program begun in 2013, the Forest Lodge Library will offer 21st Century Skills classes on the first Saturday of every month, for an hour, right after the library closes for the day. (3:00 most of the year, 4:00 in summer months.) Need some help figuring out how to check out library ebooks on your device? Need some help configuring or updating your device? Need to set up an email address and learn some internet navigation basics, or interested in learning how to post your photos to Facebook? We can help with any and all of that!
Classes are “open format” so feel welcome to bring your device…or any questions you have…to any session. Public access computers will also be available for patron use. Yulia Welk functions as “instructor” and she is a skilled, knowledgeable and patient human being!
There is no need to register for these classes, just show up. There is no charge for participate.
