Valleyview Rotarians,  #14  Only 38 to go!  NEW ZOOM LINK, We have our own account now, so this should be the link until further notice! See to the right for the link.

WE are going to try a combo Zoom and in Person meeting.  I've part of 3 prior attempts for other organizations, hope we can pull it off better than they did.  So we are limited to 14 members to attend in person at the Coulee Recovery Center,  933 Ferry Street,  La Crosse, WI  54601-4745.  Julie Nelson has sent out the sign up sheet for the lucky 14 so contact her if you want to be in person.  The rest of us will be ZZOOMMING.  I will be on line, I caught the dreaded COVID19 last weekend at an event and am in Quarantine at the lake for the last week.  I realize that it affects everyone differently, but for me it was a mild flu, my last cold was worse.  I am done end of the week, so will be at the strategic planning session on Friday.

I sent out a Survey by email last week, PLEASE FILL THIS OUT AND EMAIL IT BACK TO ME RIGHT AWAY.  This is the basis for finding out from you, the rest of our club members what we are doing right and what we need to do differently.  Making plans without knowing the facts means you don't get anything out of it.  We have just 21 of 64 returned, PLEASE SEND IT BACK.  Fill it out, hit save and send it to me please.

We have a chance to get some training on a subject that needs to be addressed.  Child Sexual Abuse Prevention. 10/8/2020 1pm-4pm, 11/5/20 10am to 1pm, 12/7/20 5:30pm to 8:30pm. The training is from the organization, Darkness to Light. It’s their flagship program–featuring real people and real stories about protecting children from sexual abuse.  To register for one of the FREE training sessions or if you have any questions, please contact Jen Scaccio, Youth and Family Advocate with New Horizons at or by calling (608)791-2610, ext. 1203
