A recent AC Membership Survey said that 91.2% of businesses are AC members because of networking opportunities. Business Connections are just one example of the many networking opportunities the Association of Commerce provides its members. Business Connections are held the third Tuesday of the month from 5 p.m - 7 p.m. All member staffs are invited and encouraged to attend. $2 if pre-registered; $5 if not pre-registered.
Three AC member businesses are partnering up for an extra special holiday connection! Treat yourself to delicious food prepared by Boda’s, see the beauty of Wood’s Floral creations and enjoy beverages while taking in the atmosphere of the American Legion.
The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. The American Legion Trier-Puddy Post 75 welcomes veterans from all branches of the armed forces. Also located in the building is the Foxhole Bar and Hall, which is open to the public. There is no other bar and hall in the city that contributes all of their proceeds to veteran’s programs and children and youth activities in Fond du Lac.
Boda’s Restaurant & Catering has been serving Fond du Lac and the surrounding areas for almost 25 years. Located on the corner of Pioneer Road and Grove Street, the restaurant opens daily at 6 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m., except on Fridays when a fish fry is served until 8:30 p.m. They offer a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu with homemade soups and desserts.
