Julie Moriva

Presents her book:

“Dream Big, Why Not!”


Crivitz Library

June 14th at 3:00 pm


“Do you have unfulfilled dreams? Would you love a different career? Is there a hobby or interest you’re passionate about but have yet to pursue? Do you have a goal you want to achieve but have no idea where to start? So did Julie Moriva. She launched into action without much thought or planning on her journey to becoming a professional songwriter. But by luck or fate, she did one surprising thing that turned out to be the key to being able to look back, connect the dots and see what worked to propel her towards reaching her goal.”

Manure & Water Quality in Marinette County discussion @ Wausaukee on April 27 @ 10AM 4PM
