Oshkosh Civility Project


The Oshkosh Civility Project will be the topic of the League of Women Voters of Winnebago County Food for Thought Lunch on Wed. May 8, 11:50 am, Primo Restaurant, 2605 Jackson St., Oshkosh. The program begins shortly after noon. The public is welcome, no reply needed.

Michael Rust and Sue Panek will introduce the Oshkosh Civility Project in our community from their beginnings, their guiding text, and how they continue to make a positive influence on Oshkosh. We will engage in an activity to help everyone think more deeply about the tenets of civility and their use in our lives.
