Happy 10th Birthday Union South!

Happy 10th birthday, Union South! This year marks a decade since the rebuilding of our Union South.

In late 2020, the Wisconsin Union was granted the extraordinary opportunity to create a million-dollar endowment for the Wisconsin Union directorship position.

Creating Experiences for a Lifetime during a Pandemic

In March 2020, many of us felt like our world turned upside down.
