Winter-Spring 2022 Activity Guide

The WAWM RCS Staff are busy planning, scheduling, and organizing the upcoming classes and activities for this winter-spring. The upcoming 2022 Winter-Spring Activity Guide will be out next month! It will be full of your favorite seasonal activities and many that are new to the lineup. Be sure to check our Facebook and Instagram pages next month for more important information on registration dates.

Welcome to the team!

The WAWM RCS Department welcomes our newest building cleaner to the team, Mike Bruckner! He grew up in Milwaukee and has been a resident of West Allis for the last 20 years. He has a young child who was born this year. He keeps him and his mom pretty busy, but if he has some free time, he enjoys riding his motorcycle and playing animal crossings. He considers himself a people person, so he is excited to be on the RCS team and meet some more of his community.

West Allis Street Jams

Pump up the jams! That’s what West Allis Street Jams did on Saturday, September 18th. Our mobile DJ, pulled by our friendly Officer Nelson, traveled throughout West Allis bringing the beats to your neighborhood. We made frequent stops along the way sharing awesome WAWM RCS Department and City of West Allis Swag to those who showed off their sweet moves.  

Mark Lutz shared “It was the most feel good uplifting community event he has witnessed.” Check out these sick dance moves from our community members. Special thank you to our partners, City of West Allis and Waterstone Bank for helping us make West Allis Street Jams possible. Hope to see more dance moves next year!
