Waskesiu Legacy

What is it about Waskesiu that keeps you and others coming back? Is is a cookout, a round of golf, a hike, boating, or wildlife to name a few. Whatever it is, do you want to preserve and enhance Waskesiu into the future? One way to do that is to leave your legacy by supporting the Waskesiu Foundation, both now and later - via your will. We introduced the Waskesiu Legacy at the dinner, which replaces and re-brands our planned giving program Ask yourself "What is your Waskesiu Legacy?"and consider a planned gift.

Thank you donors, guests, sponsors and auction donors!

The Community Hall was all decked out in florals, herbs and rustic wood, accented with green and fushcia - a gorgeous setting for a Garden Party, both inside and outside the hall. Thank you, the Waskesiu community, for making making the Garden Party Donor Recognition and Fundraising  Dinner on July 8, 2017 such a success. It is because of you - our donors, dinner guests, sponsors and silent auction donors that we can continue to enhance the Waskesiu experience.
