On behalf of the Decorah Rotary Loop de Loop team, thank you for participating in this year’s 5th annual event. We hope you enjoyed your time in Decorah on October 22. It turned out to be a beautiful day for being out on the trail. While the decision to postpone the races from the original September 24 date was difficult, it was the right thing to do given the flooding on the trail in September and out of respect for those seriously impacted by flooding and its ravages to personal and public property.
Every year the Decorah Rotary Club uses a portion of the proceeds of the race to benefit the Trout Run Trail system in some way. It may be needed repairs, new benches, landscaping or other amenities. This year the Rotary Board has pledged a portion to helping those in need because of the flooding. Thank you for supporting these efforts.

A year-end participant’s survey may be found on this link. Please take a moment to let us know what you thought about the race and your time in Decorah:
Thank you very much and here’s to 2017 - see you on the trail!
Earlier this year the Decorah Rotary Club executed a service project consisting of the planting of seeds and initial cultivating of the seedlings for delivery to several of the local area assisted living facilities.
The following message was recently received from Andrea Hexom, Activity Services Director at Aase Haugen Senior Services: "Thanks again for the flowers and plants you dropped off this spring. I would like you to know how much everyone enjoyed watching them grow. Our residents ate the squash for dinner today! We had a ton of squash from just a couple of plants!"
Thanks again to everyone involved in the project, and especially fellow Rotarians Shannon Duncan and Ward Budweg for their leadership efforts.

Rotary District 5970 has awarded the Decorah Rotary Club with a $2,500 grant to match the Club's commitment of financial support to the Trout Run Trail...
140 local residents enjoyed motorized tours of the renowned Trout Run Trail, courtesy of the Decorah Rotary Club's second Trout Run Trail Tour Day held on Tuesday, August 23rd. This event represents the only time motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail. It provided an opportunity for seniors and others with physical limitations to enjoy all of the sights along the trail. The event also included picnic lunch and free helmet and bike bell installations. The club thanks all of the volunteers and sponsors who made this special day possible.
