"Part of staying positive [during the COVID pandemic] was taking note that downtown La Crosse is a community all of it's own and exemplified by the  "can do" and very creative nature of Downtown Mainstreet. 


Those folks don't give up, find ways to help local business and keep moving forward!  That's how we survive together. "
