This will be an opportunity to tour the FVTC packaging and culinary program in Appleton, WI. Our FV-IoPP group provides valuable scholarship dollars to FVTC and we will get to see their great programs, instructors and students first hand.


As part of their program they also host a superior culinary program and it’s all about “packaging” – our meeting social will include a fall weather Wisconsin Chili Cook-off & we have invited the culinary staff at FVTC to help judge our entries. We will hold our Chili Cook-off portion at the local Fox Valley Brewery and welcome all to this great fall social event.
