Navy Week

The US Navy is visiting the area, working to engage with the community.

On Tuesday Appleton Mayor, Tim Hanna, made a proclamation declaring this week the official Navy Week in Appleton.

He presented Rear Admiral Bruce Gillingham with the proclamation during a concert at Pierce Park.

"It's so important to honor the different branches of the military. The Navy does so much more than I think people think of off the top of their heads. So, they're here to show us a little bit about all the things that they do and I think give an opportunity for us to express our appreciation," said Mayor Hanna.

Navy Week events are planned throughout northeast Wisconsin through Sunday.
