Join us at Par 4 Resort in Waupaca to celebrate clients, community members, volunteers, and staff at CAP Services’ Community Celebration! While we enjoy appetizers, CAP Services’ President & CEO Nicole Harrison will be awarding the Pnazek Out of the Box and Arlene Stahmer Volunteer Appreciation Award to two well-deserving people before we move to our keynote speaker and author Kao Kalia Yang.

 

To celebrate coming back together after two long years, this event will be at no cost for registrants. Although this event is at no cost, we encourage you to register by May 15th to confirm we will have enough food and drinks for everyone to enjoy.
