Greetings from us at WAKO

Great news from WAKO! We will have our annual Show and Auction once again this year! It’ll be held the first weekend in November, which is Nov. 5-6, 2022. We’ve had so many good comments about our hotel which we have used the past couple of years, so we have signed our contract again with The Comfort Suites –Airport-Milwaukee. We even have our featured guest speaker lined up; Greg Niedzielski. His presentation will be “Annual Killifish” followed by appeal time for your questions to be answered. The Egg-Laying Toothcarp Jamboree is free and open to the public. Our Show links will be updated shortly so stop by for more info.
