This Week at Rotary - Casey Cooper
Mississippi River Trip - Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico

Casey Cooper is the brother of club member Callie Smith. Casey will share his story of floating the entire Mississippi!

In the summer of 2018, after I graduated college and before I started my career as a funeral director, I paddled the entire Mississippi River. Growing up near the marsh and on the river in La Crosse, this had always been a dream of mine. While attending the University of Minnesota's Mortuary Science Program I became actively involved in an organization called Children's Grief Connection. 

Last Week at Rotary
Vicki Markussen, founder of Engage Greater La Crosse, shared her story of her start-up nonprofit.
The vision of Engage La Crosse is to share local stories with calls to action around big issues, bold endeavors and inspiring leaders.
"This free platform tells stories in our community, connects you to your interests and calls your passion to action so we can build a greater La Crosse." says Vicki.
Vicki has previous experience with leadership at La Crosse Area Builders Association, 7 Rivers Alliance and La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce. She also has served in a number of organizations through board and volunteer experiences.
