New Members Welcome Night @ Greystone Ale House
Feb 6 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us Feb. 6th, 2018 for New Members Social Nite at the
Graystone Ale House

Always a popular event for new and current FVR members!  This is a great way to welcome our new members and maybe visit with some members we don’t get to see during the summer months.

Help us welcome some new (and maybe some old…) FVR PCA members to our club at the Graystone Ale House in Green Bay area… OK, technically DePere/Ledgeview, on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018.  Hopefully we’ll have good weather (yes those days are coming!).

Here’s the drill: We will socialize in their party room and have drinks on your dime from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m, then order off their extensive menu, and have separate bills prepared to make things EZ!

For you new people, dress is very casual, and your guest is always welcome.
We’ll hear a few announcements, give away a few door prizes, and call it a night around 8-8:30 p.m.

The establishment is just south of 172 / GV so getting there from just about anywhere is pretty easy. Of course, all members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

RSVP to mehaen@sbcglobal.net by Feb. 2nd just so we can give the Graystone an approx. head count.

Rally for a Reason
Apr 21 all-day

April 21 — Rally for a Reason. This event benefits the Howe Community Resource Center in Green Bay and provides support for children and families throughout Brown County.
The region was a sponsor of this last year and the board is considering to renew its sponsorship for this year. The families in the Howe neighborhood struggle with a high poverty rate. Children attending school here are very likely to face homelessness, food insecurity and are much more prone to drop out of school than their peers. Howe Community Resource Center supports them by providing tutoring for students, general support and free monthly dinner nights that connect families to each other and to resources in the community.  The organization has provided 887 meals in 2017.

Stay tuned for more information about this event and plan to participate in the rally.
