Thank you and FORWARD!

Thanks to all who tabled, donated, and attended our Progresstival on Saturday! We had a great time networking and learning about the great work going on in our community. You generous donations were sufficient to cover the costs of the space rental, speaker fee, copying, supplies and hotspot. 

We've updated the event page so you can find links to the groups who were there (and who couldn't make it but had signed up). Remember to FILL OUT THE SURVEY!!!!

Paul Cienfuegos was impressed by our enthusiasm at the Progresstival and led a great Intro to Community Rights session for about 20 people on Sunday. He will conduct another Intro to Community Rights on February 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. in Tomah. (Contact Katie for details). On March 4, there will be a Regional Community Rights gathering in Sparta **open to those who have already attended an Intro to Community Rights workshop.** More details and links will be posted as available.

Coming this week - more important local events:

Absentee voting in person begins in many municipalities in Wisconsin. The hours vary depending on where you vote. Contact your clerk for correct info. If you are not registered or need to update your registration, you can do that, too. Here's more info about it from the Wisconsin Elections Commission.  In most cases, you may vote (and take your neighbors, friends, and co-workers if everyone votes in the same municipality) absentee in person M-F from February 5 through February 16.  If your municipality has a website, you can often find absentee in person voting info there. Here's info for City of La Crosse, City of Onalaska, and Village of Holmen for example. And for general voting info including where you vote and what's on your ballot, visit
