OWF News

Annual Meeting - The Annual Meeting for Friends of OWF was held on November 10 at Old World Wisconsin. Those in attendance were entertained by a slideshow of event highlights from the past fiscal year while enjoying beverages and appetizers. If you missed it, you can view the slideshow: 2017 Event Highlights.

Our Friends were then asked to refer to the Annual Report which lists the draft of the Statement of Financial Position for the fiscal year October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. The board-approved slate of officers was ratified. The 2017-2018 Board of Trustees are Terrance Dignan, Chair; Chad Johnstone, Vice Chair; Douglas Bruins, Treasurer and Barbara Day Pinekenstein, Secretary. Additional Trustees include: Cody Horlacher, Robert Johnston, Joanne Kraut, Brian Mitchell, Hans Pregler, Charlotte Shirven, Heidi Springer, and Jo Ann Villavicencio.

Dan Freas, Director of Old World Wisconsin, proceeded to thank Old World Foundation and its Friends for the support given this past year. Mr. Freas then presented the year in review and some of the exciting projects on the horizon at Old World Wisconsin.

Together we look forward to an exciting future at Old World Wisconsin!
