The Voice of Choice

"Oshkosh is proud to say we have been a member of ACE for more than 20 years! Some of our ACE revenue checks have been used for our new swimming pool, a batting cage for the baseball field and park shade structures. This is noticeable evidence for years to come of how Oshkosh residents will benefit...
