Alcohol Action Team
re:TH!NK’s Alcohol Action Team is working to reduce underage drinking, reduce alcohol-related harm caused by excessive drinking, and promote a healthy culture around alcohol consumption in Winnebago County.
We are working to make sure the alcohol environment in Winnebago County is safe for all residents and visitors. We are focusing our efforts on creating safe alcohol environments at community festivals and events in Winnebago County. Community festivals and events are an important part of Winnebago County’s culture. There are a wide range of festivals and events in Oshkosh, also known as “Event City,” and in Winnebago County. Managing alcohol consumption is a major task that festival and event organizers must be aware of in preparing for their event. The Alcohol Action Team is working with festival and event organizers to implement best practices for serving and selling alcohol at community festivals and events.
If you want to help create a safe alcohol environment in Winnebago County, join our team!
Meeting Day/Time/Place: Third Thursday of the month at 2pm at JP Coughlin Center, 625 E. County Rd. Y, Oshkosh, WI
Team Staff Liaison: Corey Sagehorn, Team Staff Liaision,
