Our Next Meeting

Our Next Meeting

Life is one big adventure. Come help us celebrate yet another fun auxiliary meeting in Green Bay, Wisconsin on June 17th through the 20th. The theme of this meeting is: “How we made America great.” Registration is on Wednesday with a welcome reception starting at 6:00. (Be sure to indicate on your registration whether or not you will attend the dinner.)

On Thursday morning the tours start at 9:30 am. The tours offer many choices for your adventure. They include a trip to the Neville Museum to tour an exhibit entitled, “Guns and Gowns”. The display focuses on guns and gowns from the Civil War to the Viet Nam War. It will be followed with a stop at the Ashwaubenon Museum to view their display of “tramp art”. In the afternoon we plan to tour the Marquis Carver Yacht building factory in Pulaski followed by a tour of the Green Bay Hall of Fame, a treasure of football history. You will find this tour interesting whether you follow the Packers or not. The next stop is my favorite. We will experience the Seroogy Chocolate Shop in De Pere for complimentary coffee and a sampling of their chocolates.   Note you will need to make a choice between the Hall of Fame and chocolates as these tours run concurrently. At 7:30 we will get to know some new friends on our adventure at the “Meet and Greet”.

On Friday the book club meets at 2:00 pm. The book to be discussed is, Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. At 7:30 there will be a speaker covering the culture and lore of the Oneida Nation. Saturday at 11:30 we will have our traditional ladies’ luncheon and meeting. Our speaker is from the Brown County Historical Society. Her program entitled, “Don’t Drink the Water from the Finger Bowl” is a look at the proper Victorian etiquette at the turn of the century.

Please save the dates and look forward to seeing you in Green Bay.

Jeanne Thorson, Hostess
