We are doing something different this year! As retirees from the University of Wisconsin, we thought it was time to take this event home - back to campus, to the newly renovated Memorial Union. Our invited speaker is Associate Vice Chancellor and Director of the Wisconsin Union Mark Guthier. Mark will share with us all of the improvements and enhancements made at the Memorial Union.

We have planned an eventful afternoon. The afternoon will start with registration at 12:30 p.m.  followed by lunch, speaker, and annual business meeting. To round out the rest of the afternoon, members may then choose one of two guided tours: either a tour of Alumni Park or a “behind-the-scenes” tour of Memorial Union. After the tours, we invite you to join your friends and colleagues while enjoying a beverage or ice cream on the Terrace.


New Member Table:   If you are new to UWRA or have attended one or two UWRA luncheons or events, we welcome you. There will be a special luncheon table for new attendees to meet board members who will welcome you to UWRA and answer any of your questions or concerns. Look for the table tent saying, "New Member Table".
