  • Lunched at Safari, a restaurant and grocery owned and operated by Somali immigrants in Barron
  • Attended the first night of the Wisconsin Valley Fair in Wausau, an annual event that connects urban and rural regional residents 
  • Learned the intricacies of a traditional craft like birchbark basket making from a “Wisconsin Folks” artist
