With exciting plans in the works to celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2017, we take time to reflect on the transformative impact on the War Memorial Center from our local foundations and corporations.
Join us on Jan. 25, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for “Wolves at the Memorial Center,” a program offered to local Cub Scouts to satisfy their two requirements for the Cub Scouts Duty to God Footsteps adventure loop.
It may look like Santa left a giant present in the middle of Veterans Courtyard, but this gift won’t be opened until May 1. That’s when the renovation work on our signature staircase (affectionately known as the “birdcage”) will be completed.
On November 7, the War Memorial Center welcomed 20 students and their teacher and interpreter from the Milwaukee Neighborhood House U.S. citizenship program.
The War Memorial Center (WMC) is pleased to announce three new members to our Board of Trustees.
Michael Grebe, Michael Gibson, and Charles “Andy” Gordon are all veterans of the United States Army with significant military, business and philanthropic experience.
For 2017, we have several important activities planned and more major reconstruction. So, as I am fond of saying about the WMC, “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
On December 5th, we’ll begin taking that to a new level by transforming our Facebook and Twitter pages into richer experiences for our audience!
On October 20th, a touching ceremony was held at the Southeast Wisconsin Vietnam Veterans Memorial in honor of the 25th anniversary of its dedication.
In conjunction with MPTV’s airing of Mettle & Honor: The Greatest Generation, WUWM’s Lake Effect interviewed WMC board members Cream Pepito and George Gaspar.
The memorial will be dedicated on Saturday, Nov. 5th, immediately following the 2016 Veterans Day Parade.
