Agenda: During the Annual Meeting, a brief state-of-the-club address and ratification of board member elections will take place prior to celebrating the life and career of Robert H. Wills.

Wills influenced the lives and careers of many people during his long tenure with the company.
Former colleagues of Robert H. Wills have started a fund in his memory with the Milwaukee Press Club’s Endowment. Tax exempt donations to the Freedom of Information Fund can be mailed along with this form to David Niles, MPC Endowment Ltd., 1505 N. 119th St., Wauwatosa, WI 53226.
