Just when the memories of the Wheatland Festival begin to fade, winter is starting to get to you, when the glow of the holiday season is fading, along comes Winter Wheat to put a twinkle in your eye and a bounce in your step.

The Winter Wheat committee meets monthly throughout the year to plan the event, which will be held at The Intersection in Grand Rapids once again.  We have some surprises in store, so plan to come on over and check it out.

I’d like to introduce the Winter Wheat Committee that works so hard to make this event spectacular.  Chairperson Michael Little, Secretary Marilyn Hummel, and committee members Bear Berends, John Carpenter, Jim Foerch, Roger Little, Laurie Pietravalle, Ben Rees, Marilyn Rees, and Paul Sachs.  If you see them, stop, give them a “shake and howdy” and let them know you appreciate their fine work.

Winter Wheat is an annual fundraiser for WMO.  Last year, and again this year, our proceeds will go towards the acoustic performance venue (also known as the drum kiva).  To highlight this project, Winter Wheat V will present a review of the project, with a drumming performance.  Details are still being worked out, but keep in touch at Wheatland’s website at for the latest details.

Among the bands confirmed for January 2014 are The Blue Water Ramblers, The Oat Bran Boys, Red Tail Ring, An Dro, Fiddlefire, Blue Molly, Kirk Jones and the Benzie Playboys, Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellies, and Black Jake and the Carnies.  What a line-up!!!!!!  As usual, there will be dancing to squares and contras, waltzes…just get on up and move around the floor.  Someone will jump up and dance with you.
