May is Tavern Month and members of the Tavern League of Wisconsin (TLW) remind everyone of the important role the local tavern plays in communities throughout Wisconsin.
The local tavern is unique to Wisconsin and provides a special place for family and friends to gather, whatever the occasion.
This year, the Tavern League of Wisconsin is especially pleased to announce that, last year, its members donated over $9,000,000 to over 10,000 Wisconsin charities, including $97,000 for over 100 charities from the Pierce County Tavern League.
Mike Celt, Pierce president, said those charities have included the Pierce County Food Shelf, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) and K-9, Ronald McDonald House, Gillette Children’s Hospital, area schools and victims of tragedies.
“This is another demonstration of how our members truly do care about the communities in which they live,” said Pete Madland, executive director of the TLW. “Whether it’s providing jobs, paying taxes or donating to charities, each day members of the Tavern League of Wisconsin show they truly are ‘Friends and neighbors helping friends and neighbors’.”
