They also offer tumble classes, camps, and private tumbling lessons throughout the year. This year, they're headed to compete at Nationals in Orlando!

We are so honored to be able to make this donation to the Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care at Gundersen Health System.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – of the 1950s – at the Monroe County Local History Room in Sparta.  Starting Monday, November 13th, visitors can time travel to the not-so-distant past by viewing the History Room’s special Christmas display, “A 1950s Christmas.”  This retro holiday display recreates what Christmas morning might have looked like sixty years ago, from the classic toys under the tree to the linoleum flooring under the toys.  Bask in the nostalgia as you view dozens of the most popular playthings of the 1950s on display right in front of your eyes.  Time travel through television as you watch 60-year-old commercials on a 1953 TV.  Get goosepimply as you page through Christmas catalogs from six decades ago.  Bring the whole family and see what Christmas morning was like in the 1950s.

The museum display, “A 1950s Christmas,” runs from November 13th through January 13th.  The public is invited to a special open house on Monday, November 13th from 6:30-8pm.  Enjoy a sneak preview of the display as well as sweet holiday treats.  The Monroe County Local History Room is located at 200 West Main Street, Sparta.  Regular museum hours are Monday-Saturday, 9-4:30.  The History Room will also be open until 8pm on November 24-25, December 1-2, and December 8-9.  For more information call 608-269-8680 or visit  Admission is free.

We're so proud to help feed people in our community and across the globe! With our partners at G.E.C.U. and Mattress Outlet La Crosse, Zcare was able to donate to the 3rd Annual iFeed. 

Here's a note from Rotary iFeed:

"We had awesome numbers for out dried packed meals: we exceeded out 75,000 goal and packed 78,102 meals - 21,000 of those that are now on their way to Puerto Rico and the rest that will be heading to Nicaragua! Many thanks to Delta Airlines for all the help with the meals for Hurricane relief and to the Law Office of Gary Van Domelen for funding the cargo fees. 
We gathered almost 27,000 non-perishable food items… short of our goal, but still - A LOT OF FOOD! There are a few food drive that were taking place yesterday that will get their food to Hunger Task Force - so items are still coming in! 
We would like to thank all our sponsors and all our volunteers for making this year’s iFeed a huge success! Thank you so much to ZCare as well for the terrific support and for the SURPRISE check for $200! We were so happy - and every dollar will go to help the hungry!"
