National Commander to Visit

Sons of The American Legion National Commander Greg “Doc” Gibbs will be visiting Wisconsin during our Midwinter Conference on January 18-20 in Baraboo, WI. He would like to meet each and everyone of you and hear your story. If you haven’t made plans to attend yet, please do so at www.wisal.org/midwinter.

Baskets for Camp

Help Grafton Squadron 355 help Camp American Legion. The Midwinter S.A.L. Basket Raffle proceeds will be for Squadron 355’s efforts to replace a cabin at Camp American Legion.

Flooding and age took their toll on the cabin sponsored by S.A.L. Squadron 355 of Grafton. The damage this past year was so severe it required the razing of the cabin.

Now Squadron 355 is working to raise the funds needed to rebuild the cabin. Please consider donating a basket to this year’s raffle at Midwinter.


Biz Contest open for Veterans

At a time when more veterans are expressing interest in becoming entrepreneurs, the 16th annual Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest is accepting entries online for the 2019 competition through 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019. 

 Six veterans made it to the finalist rounds of the Governor’s Business Plan Contest in 2017 and 2018. In 2016, a Madison-area startup formed by a U.S. Air Force veteran placed first in the Information Technology category of the statewide contest. Nick Mastronardi, a former Air Force officer, launched POLCO as a civic engagement platform.

 The contest is designed to encourage entrepreneurs in the startup stage of tech-based businesses in Wisconsin. The contest links up-and-coming entrepreneurs with a statewide network of community resources, expert advice and mentoring, management talent and possible sources of capital.

Each state may set an earlier deadline for registration, however.

Fees for senior teams will remain $50 for national registration, $35 for administrative fees and either $155 for season personal accident or $225 for year-round coverage. General liability costs increased by $6 to $106.

Fees for junior teams will remain $25 for national registration, $35 for administrative fees and either $130 for season personal accident or $185 for year-round coverage. General liability costs increased by $6 to $74.

State fees, if applicable, will vary by state.
