Proudly Serving the La Crosse Community 

for nearly 100 years!

The La Crosse Lions Club presented a check for $12,688 to the City’s Park Department to pay for the musical play area at the Trane All Abilities Park. The presentation took take place at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 3 at the park located at 2401 15th St S. The music area was an addition to the park not planned for in the original park design. It will be an important addition to the park that will provide another play area for children to use.
Jim Flottmeyer, Parks, Forestry Building and Grounds Project Specialist, comments, “Thanks to the Lions Club for helping us to push the All Abilities facility across the finish line. The music area is a great location to help us with a donation.”
According to Dave Wignes, Lions Club President, “Lions have historically supported the visually and hearing impaired and disadvantaged in the community and are excited to step forward and pay for this play area. We hope the play area will be enjoyed by children for many years.”
Lions members thank everyone in the community who contribute to our fund raising projects as it enables the Lions to support important community projects like the Trane All Abilities Park. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”
The La Crosse Lions Club has 61 members and meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. The La Crosse Lions Club is a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
