Coulee Parenting Connection

Special edition: COVID & Our Community

Nov 01, 2020 06:50PM ● By Lissa Carlson
We're offering daily pickup of this special edition of Coulee Parenting at the Children's Museum, 207 5th St., for a $6*** donation from 2-4pm Monday through Friday (closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays). Please text 608-317-8748 and we'll meet you at the Museum's REAR entrance doors, in mask, with your copy (the Museum remains closed). No need to park or get out of your car - simply follow the alley from Jay Street to the first set of doors. (Cash only; if you have a Venmo account and wish to pay with it, let us know in your text when you arrive for pickup and we'll arrange to do that.)

Or save yourself a trip and enjoy HOME DELIVERY for $10 ($6 donation, $4 postage & handling fee). This is a great gift option for sharing a snapshot of La Crosse with out-of-town friends and family. Order form below. Copies mailed out every Friday.

This perfect-bound, 84-page premium publication provides a look into our lives in the Coulee Region during COVID. Just as we recall other significant times in the past (the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, 9/11), our days of COVID will become something students study as part of defining events in our country's narrative. 

TWO publications in one (known as a "flip cover" magazine), COVID & Our Community is a timely tribute to read now, documenting how businesses and families responded to quarantine, offering advice for weathering rough financial times, and providing tips for addressing racism and advice for navigating the "new norm." And it's bound to be a useful tool in the future for recalling our local lives.

Flip it over for the 2020 Front Porch Project archives for the Greater La Crosse Area, featuring nearly 300 families in our region.

*** 100 percent of your $6 donation goes directly to the six organizations featured in the special edition: Boys & Girls Club, Children's Museum, GROW, ORA Trails, 2nd Chance to Shine, and Valley View Rotary.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot mail copies without payment. You will need to use your back button to return to this page and enter mailing information if different than your shipping address in PayPal. Be sure your name matches your PayPal payment in that case.
