Al Wenig retires after 39 years.   Rec Dept welcomes Kabel Helmbrecht as new Director.  



Please be informed that I am retiring from the Oshkosh Recreation Department effective June 1, 2020. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 39 years of service to the Oshkosh community. The aspect that I anticipate I will miss the most upon leaving, will be the interaction that I have shared with staff and with all of the many program participants over the years. Several long term friendships developed with the opportunity to work with so many people. I feel very fortunate to have worked and lived in Oshkosh as the Community and School District have been very good to me. I plan to recreate as much as possible in my retirement.

Please welcome Kabel Helmbrecht as the new Director for the Oshkosh Recreation Department. Kabel joins the Recreation Department from the Appleton Parks and Recreation Department. Kabel will continue to provide Oshkosh with excellent leadership and recreational opportunities!

Thank you Oshkosh!

Al Wenig

Director of Recreation - Retired
