Rotary East - Rotary Lights Night in the Park

December 22

 Calling all hands on deck!!! Please try to join us if you are able to help

staff the park for Rotary Lights on the evening of Saturday, December 22.

This will be a VERY busy night in the park and we need many volunteers – 15 people per shift for 3 shifts.

Tell your spouse! Bring your kids! Sign up! To me, there is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to stand under 4 million glowing lights with my friends and family collecting donations to help my neighbors.

(Plus, it’s tradition to warm up with a hot toddy afterwards at Dublin Square! I hope you’ll join us!)



iFeed 2018
Goodbye Catherine!
This month we say goodbye to an awesome Rotary East member and great friend, Catherine Lavallée-Welch!
Catherine has accepted a new position at Bishop’s University near Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada and her last meeting here was September 24th.
Catherine has been a La Crosse resident since May, 2013 and served as the Director of Murphy Library at UWL.
In 2014, she joined Rotary East because she wanted to meet people in the community. She saw that others in Rotary East enjoyed their membership and were welcoming to others. Penny Tiedt was her sponsor.
Catherine's favorite part of being in East was being involved in projects such as Rotary Lights, Chad Erickson Park clean up, and iFeed. She also enjoyed handling our social media presence.
Something unique about Catherine is that both her and her husband are avid Doc Savage (character from pulp magazines) fans and, in fact, met at a pulp convention in Ohio.
She looks forward to exploring Rotary in her new place of Sherbrooke.
We wish you all the best Catherine!
