Associate Membership is a program to recruit younger members, millennials, to membership.  Associate Membership is available to anyone who is proposed for membership who is 35 years of age or less.  Associate membership will end when that member reaches the age of 38. They would pay for dues and $100 for meals per quarter no matter how many meetings they attend that quarter.

Corporate Membership is a program to allow multiple employees of a business Rotary participation under one primary membership. Each corporate membership is limited to a three-year term. After the three-year corporate membership term, the individuals are required to become individual members. View Corporate Membership Policy.

Family Membership is a program to allow a second individual Rotary participation under one primary membership.  View Family Membership Policy.

Honorary Membership  is offered to members who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service in the furtherance of Rotary ideals.Unlike other membership categories that can be requested by the member, Honorary Membership is bestowed upon a member by election from the Board of Directors.   View Honorary Membership Policy.

Excused Membership is offered to members if the aggregate of the member’s years of age and years of membership in one or more clubs is 85 years or more, the member has been a member of one or more clubs for at least 20 years, and the member has notified the club's secretary in writing of the member’s desire to be excused from attendance  and the board has approved.  Excused Members will pay the quarterly dues and only for meals when they attend a meeting.

Membership Proposals....we will no longer ask for three references when you propose a new member.  This was a criteria that our club had set not RI.  This will help us process new members into our club more efficiently.  You can access the membership proposal form online, under the Club Information site page.

ROTARY MUSKY CHALLENGE FUNDRAISER

 
2020 Rotary Al’s Musky Challenge
The End Game, Day #9 & Day #10
“Thanks a Boatload”
Tuesday 08/25 & Thursday 08/27
Hello Rotarian's, this is Al Louis. Stand by for news!
 
Friends tell me that I’m one of the luckiest people they know. I’m blessed to still have all of my parents. I’m proud of my kids and grandkids. My businesses continue to be successful. And, I have my wife, Brenda. She is my rock.
No matter the obstacle, Brenda’s by my side. She tells me, “Things will work out. Just keep doing what you do. You’ve got this.” Luck has little to do with it. She continues to steer the ship, putting everyone ahead of herself. She is the true reason it all works. So, I am dedicating the 2020 Musky Challenge to her, Brenda Louis, my true companion.
 
And now, the rest of the story....
 
A.J. and I weren’t alone those last two days of the Challenge. No less than 85 bass boats and 170+ contestants were on Vermilion for a huge bass tournament. During the days prior the tournament, competitors pre-fished for a solid week. Morning, noon and night they pounded every spot on the lake that held water. A.J. reminded me, “The last time there was a large bass tournament on the lake, we got skunked for the next two weeks.” Well, he knows Vermilion and he was right. We fished Tuesday night and had one musky follow my lure. Nothing else. Thursday, we saw zero muskies. Sure, I was disappointed. I was one musky short, an eighth, from my personal season’s best. Albeit, together with A.J., we had landed a total of nine muskies. But, as that last night ended, I thought about just how fortunate I was. Who gets the opportunity to spend time with friends and loved ones, fishing and relaxing up North, especially during these strange times of Covid-19? “Thanks a Boatload” The 2020 Musky Challenge has generated more than $41,500 in contributions! Thanks a “boatload” to all the Rotarians, family, friends, sponsors and donors (many whom I’ve never met) that supported the Challenge. A special thank you goes out to the “home team” in La Crosse. Without these dedicated Rotarians promoting, recording and reporting, this event would never have been as successful.
Stay tuned… donations are still coming in and there’s still time to make a gift. Pledge or donate here: https://rotarycluboflacrosse.org/page/al-s-musky-challenge/

THE BRAIN GAME 

The Brain Game
 

"The Brain Game" is a user-friendly educational guide which explains to parents why and how their child is learning and developing. Additionally, the book includes specific activities, songs, and suggested behaviors that parents can engage in to help foster their child's intellectual and social development. 

The Brain Game was born when the Director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families spoke to the Rotary Club of La Crosse, WI. She was excited to spread the word of new, cutting-edge research into early child brain development. More than ever before, scientists discovered that proper stimulation of children in the first three years could play a huge role in growing a healthy brain.

During this meeting we'll learn more about The Brain Game, along with some exciting new developments around it.
