Main Event Fall Celebration held as a drive-thru

While the event looks different, the goal is the same, to keep Old Main open for everyone

GALESVILLE, Wis (WKBT) – Like many other events during the pandemic, a Galesville event went a little bit different this year. The Old Main in Galesville hosted the Maine Event Fall Celebration Saturday.

Old Main was the main building of Galesville University, the first university in western Wisconsin.

Because of the pandemic, the event was held in drive-thru fashion. While the event looks different, the goal is the same, to keep Old Main open for everyone.

“Even if we walk away with $100 from the event, it still worth the time, still worth the effort, because its something to keep Old Main going,” said Alex Wegner, the President of the Old Main.

Like most years, there was a 50/50 raffle and prizes include an autographed football by the 2018 and 2019 Packers.
