2015 Day at the capitol
Every two years Wisconsin Family Council presents their very popular "Day at the Capitol." This is a day devoted to connecting you with your state government. They'll have key legislators and others speak and answer questions about legislative priorities this session. In addition, there will be a couple of options where you can learn more about the heritage of our state capitol and participate in an exclusive question and answer time with WFC president Julaine Appling. A very important part of the day is you connecting directly with your elected officials, up close and personal. This year, WFC's Day at the Capitol will take place on Thursday, March 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include a lunch at the Inn on the Park. For WACS students, there is an $8 per person (normal cost is $15 per person) cost this year, due to the lunch being included. To reserve your place EARLY, call the Wisconsin Family Council office at 866-848-2536. Space is limited!
Day at the Capitol - February 11, 2014
WACS hosted a Day at the Capitol on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. This year four schools brought 50 students down to join Julaine Appling from the Wisconsin Family Council for the day. We had presentations by Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Gableman, Lieutenent Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, state senators and assembly members, as well as legislative aides. It was a great day learning about the legislative process and seeing the workings of our State Capitol.
Thanks to our schools for some of the great comments on the day!
