From Dean Rick Klemme and Associate Dean Yvonne Horton:
Yvonne and I cordially invite you to our premier statewide centennial event Sunday, June 24, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
This event is for all past and present colleagues, WACEC members, and UW-Extension and UW System colleagues. Our “Centennial Commemoration at Lambeau Field” will be an informal reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
This commemoration creates an opportunity for us to relax, share memories and reflect on our history among the ambiance and aura of excellence within Lambeau Field.
The event includes a tailgate menu of brats, burgers, barbecue chicken and all the “sides” one would expect for a Lambeau Field game day experience, including baked beans, potato salad and gourmet cookies. The tailgate is served with coffee, decaffeinated coffee, milk, and iced and hot teas. A full cash bar also will be available.
Look for registration and more information about the event coming your way very soon!
We hope to see you at Lambeau Field Sunday, June 24.
Rick and Yvonne”
