Focus on Local History
Each month, join local historian Gavin Schmitt (and the occasional guest speaker) to learn about a piece of Kaukauna. Maybe a founding father (or mother!), a long-time business, or perhaps an organization that has helped the city grow. The sharing of memories is strongly encouraged, and proposals for future topics are welcome.
