School Welcome Back Program
The Waunakee School Staff returned to school for their All Staff Orientation Meeting on Monday and the Chamber was there to welcome them back with a breakfast reception. An information table with coupons and giveaways from member businesses was available for the staff to help themselves. They were very attentive to the details of each item and very appreciative for the generous offerings.
Ellen Schaaf, Chamber Executive Director, thanked the staff for their service to the community and reminded them to shop locally and support the businesses that support the school system in so many ways.
As part of the presentation, Roger Hamilton, photo journalist for the Waunakee Tribune, played "Waunakee Trivia" with the crowd and handed Community Newsletters Let Us Help You Celebrate! Roger's dedication to the Waunakee School System does not go unnoticed as shown by the warm welcome he received by many staff members. It was an honor to represent our members while recognizing and thanking our exceptional school staff. Thank you to our volunteers and sponsors that made this event possible!
