WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Thousands of legion families will visit central Wisconsin this weekend.

The American Legion State Convention begins Thursday drawing more than 1,200 delegates and Legion members to the Wausau area. This is the 9th time the Wausau American Legion has hosted the state convention since 1929.

"The purpose of the convention is more a business meeting to elect more officers for the year and discuss new programs, new benefits for Veterans since our focus right now is to help Veterans and their families especially with ongoing wars that we have," says Dale Wisnewski, Post 10 Commander.

Along with voting and meetings they will have a large golf tournament Saturday and a steak feed that evening.
