On December 29 and 30, 2012, Amil’s Inn was honored to host one of Christian music’s most exciting new pop/rock band, Hearts of Saints.  The Hearts of Saints was in the Ontario, Wisconsin area for a 7:00 PM concert on December 30.

Hearts of Saints is made up of Craig Felker (lead singer), Jason Killebrew (drums), Jesse Grisham (guitar) and Joel Purdy (bass) plus their support team of Chris, Alex and Levi.

The group’s most recent project is For All of Us.  The focus of this project was “not only to write more of its signature catchy rock anthems but also Scripture-heavy songs for the church”.  For All of Us is choked full of “anthemic songs that speak to the real world joys and heartaches of the faith journey”.

CCM Magazine (Christ, Community, Music) January 2013 issue has a full page spotlight/interview about their new album, For All of Us on page 54 (www.ccmmagazine.com) .  Also FREECCM.com made Hearts of Saints a featured artist (www.FREECCM.com).

Reedsburg Medical Center Vet Fest

April 29th, 2012 by David Reeck

Your Half Marathon and 5K Finishers--David, Rachel and Paul

Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast has been blessed the past 2 years to have guests that were participants in the Rails to Trails Marathon which takes place each fall in Norwalk, Wisconsin which also includes a Half Marathon, 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Run/Walk.  These guests were so positive and encouraging that your innkeepers were finishers in last year’s Rails to Trails 5K!!  The encouragement had a residual effect which resulted in your innkeepers to be participants in the 3rd Annual Reedsburg Medical Center Vet Fest.  Dave and Paul were finishers in the Half Marathon and Rachel was a finisher in the 5K.

The 3rd Annual Reedsburg Medical Center Vet Fest took place on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Reedsburg’s Nishan Park.  The Reedsburg Medical Center Vest Fest consists of a Half Marathon, 5K Run/Walk and 1 mile Walk which unfolds along a hilly and challenging course throughout Reedsburg and surrounding area.

The out-and-back loop course for the Half Marathon begins and ends in Reedsburg’s Nishan Park, a recreational park with baseball fields for Little Leaguers of all ages on Reedsburg’s Viking Drive, near the Reedsburg Jaycees building. From there, runners follow the route in and around the town and through the rolling country roads of Sauk County and then make their way back to Nishan Park, past the home of the Veterans Memorial.

In 2011, just over 330 runners crossed the finish line in the Half Marathon (143) and 5K (195).  The 2012 race consisted of 166 Half Marathon runners—89 female/77 male and 266 5K runners—177 female/89 male.  Results taken from www.onlineraceresults.com.

 The Vet Fest began as a benefit for the Reedsburg Area Veterans Memorial.  100% of the 2010 and 2011 registration fees supported the completion of the Memorial.  Over $30,000.00 was donated.  Proceeds from the 2012 annual race will go to the Reedsburg Area United Fund and the Reedsburg VFW Post 1916.  The preliminary numbers indicated that over $12,000.00 will be donated.  To learn more about the Reedsburg Veterans Memorial visit www.reedsburgvfw.com/memorial.php.

Amil’s Inn would love to have any 4th Annual Reedsburg Medical Center Vet Fest participants as guests.  Mark your calendars for the 2013 Vet Fest Race which will be April 13, 2013.  A special race day breakfast is served to all participants!!!!!
