The days are getting shorter, there’s a nip in the air and Halloween is just around the corner.  Welcome to the October-November issue of the Badger Star!

I start these remarks by asking you to take note that my email address has changed.  My new email is [email protected].  This change is also reflected on the list of officers and directors that appears in this newsletter.  Please make a note of this change and update your records because if you want to reach me by email you will have to use my new email address: [email protected].

Over the last two months your Section has enjoyed three great events, and you can read about each of them elsewhere in this newsletter.  All were so popular that we’ll be doing them again in 2023; more about that later.

Upcoming Events

  • Our Fall Color Tour will be October 15th, starting with lunch at Gus’s Drive-In in East Troy
  • October 29th join us at Black Forest for a Tech Session! 
  • November 12th enjoy our final Drive-to-Dine of 2022 at Erv’s Mug in Oak Creek
  • We close out 2022 December 4th with our Christmas Party and Annual Meeting.  By popular demand we will once again be at Weissgerber’s Golden Mast Inn on OkaucheeLake.

You can read more about these events, including sign-up information, elsewhere in this newsletter.  Look for e-blast updates as well.  And as always, refer to the event calendar for these and all future Wisconsin Section events.

Section Donation to Waukesha County K-9 Unit

In my remarks in the August-September Badger Star I reported that your Section made a donation to the Waukesha Deputy Charities Association K-9 unit.  Their acknowledgment and thank-you for our donation appears elsewhere in this newsletter.

2023 Upcoming Events

We have already begun planning our events for next year.  2023 events with firm dates at this time include: our February 12th Valentine’s Drive-to-Dine, a June 4th car show at The Corners of Brookfield, a return to Gus’s Drive in for a Drive-to-Dine September 9th, and the September 24th Oktoberfest & Car Show at Dheinsville Historical Park.  Other events are planned, and all are listed on the event calendar elsewhere in this newsletter.

Board Members Wanted

The Wisconsin Section is seeking members who have an interest in serving on the Board of Directors. 

Three positions are open.  Serving as a board member doesn’t take a lot of work and is a great way to get to know other members.  If you are interested in serving on the board, or have questions, please call me at 608.754.6066 or email at [email protected].

Membership Matters

Congratulations to our new members, and all those celebrating membership milestones and anniversaries.  They are all listed elsewhere in this newsletter.

I close these remarks by thanking each and every one of you for being a member of the Wisconsin Section.  It’s our members who make this Section successful.  I look forward to seeing all of you in person at an upcoming event.

Best regards,

Bruce Hamilton
