This Week at Rotary - Extra Effort Awards

Rusty Cunningham will present the La Crosse Tribune Extra Effort Awards.

The Rotary Club of La Crosse is honored to recognize some local high school students who have truly given the "extra effort" and overcome long odds to accomplish amazing things as they graduate high school. We applaud the students and the supportive people - including family members, friends, teachers and school counselors - who helped them along the way.

Each student is presented with a nice certificate for $250 which is raised through Rotarian contributions.
To make these awards possible, we're asking for Rotarians to contribute. 
To donate, please email Tom Berkedal at rotarytom6220@gmail.com to let him know that you are donating. Then, write a check out to the the Rotary Club of La Crosse and write “Extra Effort Awards” in the memo line and send the check to the Rotary Club of La Crosse, PO Box 1914, La Crosse, WI 54602 or Jamie can send you an invoice to pay via credit card.  Email her at rotarylax@charter.net.
