BadgerAces final cover

Badger Aces: Wisconsin Fighter Pilots, 1917-1972, presented by Mike O'Connor
Wednesday, May 22, 2024, 6:30 pm
Join author Mike O'Connor as he relates the exciting story of those Wisconsin pilots who downed five enemy aircraft in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, or the Vietnam War, thereby becoming air aces. Using personal reminiscences, combat reports, and squadron records, O'Connor has created a compelling narrative of skilled pilots engaged in deadly air combats in the hopes of achieving "five-down-and-glory." Copies of O'Connor's books will be available for purchase. 
Program sponsored by the Friends of Cudahy Library and the Suzann E. Collins Fund.

World Wide Knit in Public Day
Saturday, June 8, 2024, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come celebrate World Wide Knit in Public Day at the Cudahy Family Library! We will meet on the north side of the library building, in the Ladish Foundation Plaza. Bring your lawn chair (or use ours), a project or two, sunscreen, and a cool beverage. If you're not a knitter, bring some supplies -- knitting needles and yarn -- and ask a knitter to teach you something. Or bring any craft you'd like to work on! If the weather doesn't cooperate, we will knit inside the library. Thank you to Mary Hallfeld for coordinating this event!
