The Winnebago Lutheran Academy Show Choir will provide musical entertainment, sponsored by Fox Valley Savings Bank.  


After dinner at 9 p.m., guests may partake of French sweets and pastries as well as Blue Goose Blend coffee by Alterra, provided by the Blue Goose Coffee House in Horicon Bank, and dessert wine.
