Welcome to WAWM Recreation & Community Services
Dear Members of the West Allis-West Milwaukee Community, On behalf of the WAWM RCS we proudly present the 2018 Winter - Spring Activity Guide with an amazing line up of programs for children, adults, families and our senior friends. Many of our signature events and classes are returning in addition to welcoming new oﬀerings and new staﬀ. We encourage you to not let the challenges of Wisconsin winters get you down. Power through it by registering for one of our many programs. With the proper layering against the cold, going to exercise or socialize is a great way to beat the winter blues. Before you know it, New Year’s resolutions will have faded and the revitalization and new beginnings spring brings will present a time for all of us to try something new. Consider taking a class you never tried before. Whatever your interest, the Recreation and Community Services Department has something for you. Do not hibernate or let the cold and wet weather of winter and spring discourage you from venturing out to the WAWM RCS programs. Each of our dedicated team members strives to deliver high quality programs and service for our community members with commitment, compassion and a desire to fulﬁll our mission of providing recreation programs and learning opportunities that serve our community. Our team thanks you for the opportunity to serve you and your family this winter and spring season. Shelly Strasser Director of Recreation and Community Services
