UPDATE - the 2016 Annual Wisconsin Legion Convention is past history.  It was a very successful event - the new officers have been elected and effectively installed, and the Legion business is firmly in hand.  We move forward in facing the challenges this next year provides.  Thanks to all who provided the support to make this Convention a success.

Post 501 was proud to sponsor the Wisconsin American Legion Annual Convention on July 14-17, at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, Middleton, WI.  This exciting 4-day event did offer numerous opportunities for Legionnaires, SAL, and the Auxiliary members to learn new ideas for retention of current members and recruiting of membership.  There were opportunities to win silent auction items, to participate in the raffles for a wide screen TV and gas grill, a daily 50/50 raffle, numerous Auxiliary gift baskets, and just personal networking with fellow Legionnaires and Veterans.
