Our new home, Thunder Bay Grille

Beginning with our morning session and our Lunch and Learn on September 27, we’ll be enjoying a new venue for Wisconsin Business Owners meetups: the Thunder Bay Grille.

We’ll normally be using the Anglers room, a private room with seating for sixty.  Another room is available with seating for 120 if needed.

The food is great, and our menus will be similar to the all-you-can eat buffets we’ve enjoyed for over fifteen years at the Best Western Midway.  Our new venue is a few exits west on I-94, then turn right (north) on Pewaukee Road, and then left at the first stop light, Tower Place.  Click for Directions.

Our morning workshop (with coffee bar) and Lunch & Learn pricing remains the same.

We’re very impressed with the relaxed, yet professional environment, and with the staff’s eagerness to please.  If you’re looking for a place for your event, we recommend you contact Laura Michel at 262-523-4244 to learn more.

We’ll be announcing our Friday, September 27th events shortly.

You may want to set aside October time for Wisconsin Business Owners events at Thunder Bay Grille on the following dates as well:

Friday, October 25th  Double Header

Friday, January 31st  Four presentations!

Friday, February 28th  TBD

Friday, March 27th   TBD

Friday, April 24th   TBD

Veterans Day – Thank a Vet

On Veterans Day, we honor those who have served in our military.   Veterans Day Centennial Poster

Well-meaning people often confuse Veterans Day with two other holidays. Memorial Day honors those who died in service of their country.   Armed Forces Day honors those who are presently serving.

If you want to “Thank A Vet”, this is the day!

2018 marks the centennial of Armistice Day – now known as Veterans Day

On November 11th, 1918, an armistice was signed ending hostilities, in effect ending World War I. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th the first commemoration of Armistice Day, honoring veterans of WWI. In 1954, when WWI “the war to end all wars”, had been followed by WWII and Korea, Congress changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day to honor all vets, not just those from WWI.

Milwaukee has a Veterans Day parade every year.  This year the Milwaukee Vets Day parade is Saturday, November 10th at 11:00 am.  The route goes East down Kilbourn Ave and ends up at the War Memorial on the lake.  If you would like to attend and honor our veterans, details are here: https://honorourmilitary.us/

Mullarky Business Systems owner Mark Mullarky wrote and first published this post, and graciously gave permission for a number of others to share this message.  Wisconsin Business Owners joins Mark to say thank you, to all of our American Veterans.   We also join Mark in his “welcome home” to Sean Mullarky, coming home this month from his first deployment overseas.

We thank these Wisconsin Business Owners – Allied Industrial Marketing, Grade A Construction, Intelegist, OnYourMark, and others for sharing this thank you message to Veterans.  Special thanks to Brilliant Breakthroughs for their perennial sharing of the honors for Vets.  Here’s a post from Maggie Mongan that I particularly enjoyed:  Supporting our Military with Appreciation:  Are you doing your fair share?
