Kenosha Civil War Museum
Join us for the opening of the Life and Limb, the exhibit sponsored by the West Side Soldiers Aid Society at the Kenosha Civil War Museum, and for our annual meeting in the Fitzgerald Gallery (second floor, around the corner from the elevator).
Here’s your chance to hear what West Side Soldiers Aid Society accomplished in 2014 and to learn where we’re headed. Can we count on you to continue and expand our mission?
Renew your membership, become a member, join in our exciting slate of activities for 2015 and, if you are so inclined, submit your name for the Board of Directors. We need members and board members who will be active in guiding our mission. Thanks to all who have responded to our annual appeal with renewals, new memberships, and extra donations!
The West Side Soldiers Aid Society was reborn in 2003. Since our incorporation with the State of Wisconsin in 2006, we have contributed over $20,000 and a massive amount of material goods to a wide variety of military and veteran causes. Learn about our new initiatives to support the Community Living Center and Recreation Therapy Program at Zablocki VA Medical Center. Our business meeting and elections, will follow our Pie Potluck in honor of International Pi Day. Bring a sweet or savory pie or fresh veggies and fruit. Members of West Side Victorian Dancers will also dance Money Musk in honor of its International Day. (Can someone take photos for the online record books?)
We’ll begin our time together by attending Helen Milam’s presentation on Mother Bickerdyke at 11 a.m. Come early to view the exhibit. Stay later to visit with Civil War Medical living history groups. Please RSVP to Patricia.
Let’s have fun together as we celebrate our history and forge ahead with our mission to “care for him who has borne the battle…”
