The Clearing Folk School is celebrating its Annual Gathering on Sept. 12, starting with a 10:45 am performance of Beauty of the Wild masque, a one-act play. Directed by Door Shakespeare’s Executive Director, Amy Ludwigsen, this masque was commissioned by Clearing founder Jens Jensen from Chicago playwright Kenneth Sawyer Goodman in 1913. Social hour will then begin in the big tent in the Homestead Meadow at 11:15 am with a picnic lunch at noon. Following the picnic, annual volunteer and instructor awards will be presented in recognition of their efforts and support of this special place. After the event, attendees are welcome to explore and hike The Clearing grounds until 4 pm.
Cost for the event is $20 per person, and pre-registration is required by Sept. 4. For more information, visit theclearing.org or call 920.854.4088.
