Fun, food and friendship is again planned for our 16th annual Gathering in Waupaca, Wis. July 18 - 19, 2020.

A full slate of informative seminars take place on Sunday with time in between for networking and socializing. The Sunday evening banquet will be held at the Waupaca Ale House with good food and companionship.
