FRUIT BOX FUNDRAISER CANCELLED

 
 
 
FRUIT BOX FUNDRAISER CANCELLED
 
Due to an alarming and continued increase of COVID cases in our area, and out of an abundance of caution for our customers and volunteers' health and safety, the Rotary Club of La Crosse Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel this year's Fruit Box Fundraiser. Refunds will be given to our customers that have already placed an order.
 
Thank you for your support and hope to see you next year!
 
 
The fruit box fundraiser is our club's largest annual fundraiser and each year brings in much-needed unrestricted funds that are necessary for the club's operating expenses, in addition to helping us support club projects like this year's Razia's Bus fundraiser. If your financial situation will allow it, we would be grateful for a contribution in lieu of your normal fruit box purchase to help with the club's ongoing expenses. 
 
While we are dropping the requirement of a $115 fruit box purchase or $100 buy-out this year, we hope you will continue to support the club with a financial gift if you are able. 
 
If you have already made a purchase or opt-out contribution, please click this link to let us know whether you would like the club to retain your contribution, or if you would like it refunded to you. 
 
If you would like to make a contribution to the club, you can submit payment online here, or mail a check to: P.O. Box 1914, La Crosse, WI  54602-1914.

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.
