Thank You Kent Scheer!
The designer and creator of our wonderfully artistically built counter, Kent Scheer, has been a great help and done a great deal for Wadena and not just The Cyber Cafe. He built this beautiful counter in honor of his parents and we at The Cyber Cafe feel that this is a great tribute. Mr. Scheer is currently in the process of repairing the damage that time has worn on his great work. The Cyber Cafe owes him a tremendous amount and is extremely thankful for the work that he has done! (Dec 2008)

Art Classes
Last summer, (Summer of '06) the Cyber Cafe held Art Classes.  Art class sessions went for two weeks two times a week.  They were very well attended and made projects anywhere from Tie Dye Shirts to Decroative Magnets, that go on the refrigerator.  Our high school staff teacher, Amanda McManigle, not only taught the class but marketed, budgeted, surveyed, and made final reports for the board.  Not only the participants learn, but the teacher did as well.

The event on St. Patrick's day raised over $8,000 dollars for the Cyber Cafe.

We are excited to be able to sponsor our sixth annual membership event.

It has been another exciting and busy year for the Cyber Cafe'. We continue to grow as a community asset with more than 60,000 teen visits to date. However, what you may not be aware of is that you have an opportunity to be a critical part of this continued success. The Cyber Cafe' membership program allows you to become a member of the Cyber Cafe' and enjoy all the benefits. The first benefit you will receive is an invitation and tickets to attend the St. Patrick's day Comedy Night at the Cyber Cafe'.

Our Featured entertainment for the comedy night is the very funny Mary Mack. Mary recounts off-kilter stories of life as a former polka band leader, music teacher, and all around confused individual. She is just one of those people you instantly like and want to share in the fun of her show.

The greatest benefit you'll recieve is to know that you're helping to ensure that the youth of Wadena and surrounding communities have a safe place to spend their free time engaged in constructive activities.

To the teens of the Wadena area the Cyber Cafe' means a place to gather after school, work on homework, socialize, and have fun in a safe healthy environment. The Cyber Cafe' board and staff are dedicated to making youth in our community feel more valued and offering them the tools to be more competitive in a global economy. With the latest computer technology and high speed internet line we are able to connect our youth with the outside world.


The Cyber Cafe' is only as great as its supporters. Revenues from food sales and other services cover approximately 50% of our costs while grants make up 25%. The remainder must come from generous individuals in our community. Please consider the event! We hope to see you there! (March 2008)
