January 2017 programs

January 6

Steve O’Malley and Kahya Fox talked about the Habitat for Humanity project which will begin early this spring in LaCrosse.  Because of the support of Rotary Works Foundation, clubs are not expected to donate money unless they want to.  Rotarians will be able to sign up for “build days” to volunteer to help build.

The project encompasses 3 lots upon which to build 2 triplexes.  Rotary will build one unit this year.

Shelly Ellingson spoke about her Windy Ridge Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center.  The center was developed in 2014 by individuals who recognized the need for therapeutic horseback riding opportunities for individuals with disabilities and special needs in Houston County.  The program is a member of the Professional Assn of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) .

Team oriented lessons are used to encourage involvement and interaction between riders and volunteers.
