Join Kelly Dunn on his sailboat Kele as you spend an afternoon on beautiful Lake Onalaska. 
Kelly has sailed boats for over 50 years.  You and your guest will meet him at La Crosse Sailing Club to board his boat . Then plan on being on the water for a few hours as you view the majestic bluffs of the Mississippi. Perhaps a bald eagle will fly by and snatch a fish from the
lake. After returning to the Club we will enjoy a nice dinner at a local restaurant
in La Crosse. The trip will be scheduled on a mutually agreeable date between
the end of May and mid-September and is weather and wind dependent. Both a
weekend day, or weekday departures are possible. - Kelly Dunn
4 Packer Tickets plus a ride to and from the game!  We will transport your party of 4 to Lambeau Field in our vehicle, provide the game tickets, cover the parking, plus have some snacks and beverages for the ride.  Once the game is over, we will drive you all back home from Green Bay.  Depending on game time, we will have either a pregame tailgate type lunch for you or a stop for dinner on the way home.  Since the schedule is not out yet, we will provide you 2 or 3 options of games that work for us once the dates are known.  Then you can let us know which you chose for your group. – Dean and Nancy McHugh
This charcuterie board is made from oak trees that are harvested only after they are 150 years old.  They are made into wine barrels in France then used at Galena Cellars winery in Galena, Illinois. The oak is quartersawn white oak, one of 7 varieties available. Once the wine is made in the oak barrels, the barrel staves are made into Charcuterie boards. (Charcuterie = tasty snacks)
In this board, the  Rotary Logo is Lazer engraved  at one end with the year 2024 underneath.`
The Charcuterie Board comes with three different Organic Valley cheese , crackers and a $50 Gift Certificate for HiVee Charcuterie Meats
It's that time of year to get your garden on. What better way to make it go easier than having your own potting bench. 


– Wait no longer. Let’s go to breakfast in Reedsburg, Marshfield, Boscobel, Red Wing or Wisconsin Dells at the Casino. I will fly you there in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. The breakfast is secondary to the joy of soaring like an eagle. Great for one person or a couple.

Included in the package is a first-class flight, food and “special commemorative gift”…..

Plan for 3 hours from start up to back at the hangar in La Crosse – Your adventure could be any day of the week that works best for you. You will be equipped with a live intercom headset to experience first-hand communication between the pilot and the control tower…. You will have the opportunity to fly the airplane via Visual Flight Rule with the option to track the flight on two separate GPS instruments, all from the confines of the front seat. You are even allowed to “Text and fly”…. Cell phone communication is guaranteed.

Why not experience what almost every young kid would love to do… Let’s Soar Together!!!

Value of the package:

· Commemorative gift set: $150

· Flying in private plane: Priceless

We can’t wait to show you the beautiful Coulee Region, through an open air ride in a convertible on a sunny day.You will drive Patt’s Porsche Boxster,automatic transmission, convertible surrounded by a caravan of Rotarians and friends.

Fee to go to the Holmen Area Rotary Club. Our ride will take us through the winding roads to Linda’s Bakery in West Salem, where we will treat the winning bidder to coffee and pastries. As we continue through the hills and valleys of the Coulee Region, over WildCat Mountain State Park,  we will make our way to  the Historic Hillsboro Brewing Company, where we will treat you to lunch.
