We welcome you all to attend the Winnebago County Historical and Archaeological Society’s Annual Meeting and bring your family to our 100th Year celebration party on October 13. The Annual meeting will take place from 2 – 3 pm on the 3rd floor of the Masonic Center, 204 Washington Avenue, Oshkosh. Built in 1924 the Oshkosh Masonic Center has been an integral part of downtown Oshkosh so we felt it was a fitting location to have our Annual Meeting and Centennial Celebration. The space is handicap accessible with parking in the rear of the building and an elevator to take you to the meeting space. During this meeting we will present a year-in-review, vote for Board Officers, and announce our winner of the Clarence “Inky” Jungwirth award. Following the meeting from 3 – 4:30 pm we our opening our doors to non-members and families for our Centennial Celebration on the 1st floor of the Masonic Center.
Guests of all ages are welcome to this free, family-friendly party to enjoy ice cream sundaes (invented in Wisconsin) and birthday cake. Guests are encouraged to show up in costumes from any time in the last 100 years (since the founding of the Historical Society in 1919). There will be music, coloring, and a photo booth to capture all the fun! Everyone is welcome to join us and celebrate our 100th year and learn more about local history and how to get involved in local historical societies.
