ROTARIAN DAVE KNUTSON MEMORIAL YOUTH SPONSORSHIP FUND

From Rotary After Hours

On December 16th 2019,our friend David Knutson passed away unexpectedly. He was an active member of the Rotary Club of La Crosse-After Hours with a passion for supporting Rotary youth programs. To honor Dave's memory, our club is determined to create an endowed sponsorship for a student to attend Rotary District 6250 - RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) annually, in his name. Our goal is to raise $4200.

Donations can be made at our website:
https://rotaryafterhours.org/page/memorial-youth-sponsorship

Or by check: Payable to Rotary After Hours, add Memorial Youth Sponsorship to the memo field, and mail to:


Rotary After Hours
P.O. Box 1622
La Crosse, WI 54602

 

Please share the link and help us keep Dave's memory alive by supporting the cause he cared about most. Thank you for your support!

The iFeed day consists of two parts: Part 1) Teams will pack over 100,000 highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice meals that will be shipped to Nicaragua to be feed malnourished children in schools and churches. Part 2) Food items collected from the hundreds of food drives held from September-November at many local businesses, churches, schools, etc will be brought to Logan High School where we’ll sort, count and then give to the La Crosse Hunger Task Force for distribution to all local food pantries. Items will also be flown to Puerto Rico to help Hurricane victims. Cash and food donations will be collected the day of the event!   iFeed Web Site

 

 

We would like to thank everyone who helped make our Holiday Program such a heart-warming and delightful event.  

 

Special thanks to our performers who shared their talent with us:  Miya and Leo Servais, Tessa, Annabelle and Roman Parrish, Maya Chilcote, Allie Schlicht and Nola Dienger Hanson, Madeline, Isabella and Sophia Masewicz, Inga Rottmann (our exchange student), Riley Horn and the Central High School Choir directed by Mike Esser.

 

Thank you to Dean Dickinson for organizing our Christmas Program, to Al Louis for the Hanukkah Reflection and Linda Zoerb for donating the poinsettias.
 
 
 
 
 
Congratulations to the Onalaska Interact Club for winning this year's food drive competition between the seven area high school interact clubs participating in iFeed. Overall, they collected 6,500 non-perishable food items to help fill food shelves in the Coulee Region!    The traveling belt will be on display at Onalaska High School for the year.   Also they will be presenting a similar award to the grade school that raised the most food within their district feeding into their overall food drive efforts. 

 

 
 
 
The Brain Game Board of Directors has exciting news!  They are launching an eBook version of The Brain Game at our Rotary International Booth in Atlanta!  They are also very close to having Amazon publish, store and distribute the hard hardcover English version and BuildFire to host the mobile app.  Kuddos to all involved in creating these exciting changes to The Brain Game.
 
The Brain Game is a book enhancing children's brain development, written and recommended by early childhood professionals. This resource was developed through the leadership of the Rotary Club of La Crosse and as part of this Rotary project given to parents of newborns at both local hospitals.  The books are also available in Spanish.
 
Reminder if you are traveling and visiting other Rotary Clubs....please make sure and pick up a banner and Brain Game Book to present. Great way to promote the Brain Game Project.
 
If you have any questions on the Brain Game Project, you can contact Jeanne Meyer, Administrator at 608-304-2971 or visit their web site.

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.
