July Coffee & Conversation 

Saturday, July 23 at 10:00 AM
Panera Bread 3200 Golf Road Delafield 53018
Meet on the Patio if the Weather is nice!
Please let Becky know if you plan to attend! 

The July parent Coffee & Conversation event is typically held during the halfway point of Cadet Basic Training.  This informal/casual get-together is a wonderful way for experienced members/parents to offer support and to get to know our New Cadet parent members. Parents may share news from letters they may have received from their cadet, while other members may offer advice and insight as to what the New Cadets may be experiencing during CBT.  March Back, A-Day and the upcoming academic year is also discussed.   ** Also important in July - Army/Navy tickets go on sale!  Each cadet attends the game with the Corp of Cadets.  They do not need to purchase a ticket.  There are four tickets available to each cadet family.

October Family Weekend Tailgate

The WWPPA has hosted a tailgate party for over a decade for the Wisconsin Cadets during one of the fall football games.  This year, we have chosen the October 22nd game against UL Monroe.  This is West Point's Parent/Family weekend, which is a great time to see your cadet! Typically, we reserve a block of football tickets (available for WWPPA members to purchase) and rent a tent on Daly field. Through generous donations, we provide food and drink to over 50 Wisconsin Cadets, roommates and close friends.  Watch your email for information on attending this awesome event!
