Partnering with the Packers and Local Police

Green Bay Packer season is here! Local Law Enforcement and 24-7 & West Wisconsin Telcom have a new deck of 2018 Packers Trading cards to give away. These special Green Bay Packer Player trading cards include pictures of 20 different Packers players and Coach McCarthy. On the reverse side, the cards have crime prevention tips that were provided by grade school students from Clay Lamberton Elementary School, Berlin, Wisconsin.

The football card program is designed to make it easier for young people to become acquainted with our local law enforcement in a fun way. Though the program is mainly intended for school children, the cards are for Packers fans of any age. The Menomonie, Altoona, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Boyceville and Colfax Police Departments along with the Dunn, Chippewa, Eau Claire and Pepin County Sheriff Offices will distribute trading cards during the NFL football season.

Feel free to stop at your local Police, Sheriff Departments or 24-7 & West Wisconsin Telcom stores to get your Green Bay Packer cards.

October is National Cooperative Month

October is National Cooperative Month and to celebrate, seven local “co-ops” are joining forces to provide a free community breakfast on Saturday, October 27th at Dunn Energy Cooperative in Menomonie. This cooperative breakfast has been an annual event for more than 20 years.

Royal Credit Union, Dunn Energy, Countryside Cooperative, Synergy, WESTconsin Credit Union, Menomonie Food Coop and West Wisconsin Telcom are all working together to sponsor this free event. Together these 7 local cooperatives serve 26 counties in Wisconsin.

The concept of working together to serve their communities is one of the seven principles guiding all cooperatives. These seven principles are shared by cooperatives located throughout the United States.

  1. Voluntary and Open Membership
  2. Democratic Member Control
  3. Member Economic Participation
  4. Autonomy and Independence
  5. Education, Training and Information
  6. Cooperation among Cooperatives
  7. Concern for Community

A Celebration in Downsville!

There was a great celebration on Saturday, August 25th for the 18th Annual Discover Downsville Day.

West Wisconsin Telcom welcomed visitors to Downsville with displays of interactive technology to help them envision their home taking advantage of our Fiber Internet, TV, Smart Home WiFi and home monitoring services. We also had Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa and JIBO set up for people to ask questions and play games. We encouraged everyone to step up to our kiosk and sign up to win their own Amazon Alexa.

The Country Acres Petting Zoo was a popular place with adults and children alike getting up close & personal with the puppies, kittens and farm animals.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by to help West Wisconsin Telcom celebrate Downsville!
