A local family suffered a house fire recently and lost everything. The mother and her 4 children, ages 5-13, relocated to live with family and a school employee reached out to Zcare for assistance. When we got in contact with the family, we learned they did not have beds, so we reached out to our amazing Zcare partners at Mattress Outlet La Crosse. They partnered with us to donate 3 pillow top mattresses and frames to this family so they can all sleep better at night. We are so blessed to live in a community that works together to help each other out. Big hugs to Mattress Outlet for their support!

1950S CHRISTMAS DISPLAY AT HISTORY ROOM IN SPARTA
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.

Dahl Automotive, in both La Crosse and Onalaska, is promoting a “Fill the Truck” food drive during their “SAVE BIG BUCKS SALES EVENT”. From November 1-November 18, both locations will accept non-perishable food items and cash donations to help feed their neighbors in need.
Five generations of the Dahl family have influenced the automobile industry for over 100 years. Dahl Automotive is the eighth oldest Ford dealer in the nation under continuous family ownership. This has been made possible through years of guest loyalty, which stems from a constant focus on the guest's complete satisfaction with our products and services.
“Dahl has been part of this community for five generations and we’re proud to be able to help an organization that is so instrumental in serving our community,” said Tyler Dahl, VP Strategic Initiatives, Dahl Automotive La Crosse, WI.
