2021 Conference and Annual General Meeting


Location:  Silverhorn Park
just North of Seeley WI
off Hwy 63


The Board has decided to have an "OUT DOOR" Annual General Meeting and Conference.  Everyone agreed that if we abide by the "Social Distancing Guidelines" it would be OK to have an outdoor get together.  Kind of an "Old Fashion" conference.
Dan and Ruth have reserved the "Silverthorn Park" just north of Seeley, Wisconsin for Saturday, May 22, 2021.  It has an open air pavilion that has electricity and water.  The park has a lake, baseball diamond, tennis court, kids play ground, grills, tables (under a roof and outside), outhouses and lots of parking.  Sounds just exactly what we need to have a great conference.  
We will ask that everyone bring their own food.  Beverages and bottled water will be provided by Sashco Company.
Dan and Ruth have offered their building yard as well as their property near the Silverthorn Park for those who would like to bring their campers and tents. Also, just 8 miles from Seeley is the KOA camp ground. For those of you that would like to stay at a hotel, there is the Lenroot Lodge behind the Sawmill Saloon in Seeley, Wisconsin.  Also there is the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Hayward just south of Seeley about 10 miles.
Please put Saturday, May 22nd, in bold letters on your calendar.   I am still looking into having our AGM available via Zoom as an additional option for members to join in the activities.  
I will be sending out a registration form soon.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  
Stay safe and healthy
