On Thursday, Nov. 11 members of the Menomonie community joined with Students UNITE! from UW-Stout to send money, food, firewood, and supplies to those protecting the water at Standing Rock. The event was a huge success, meeting the fundraising goals and sending the surplus to the Standing Rock Defense Fund. The event took place at the Acoustic Cafe in downtown Menomonie. Kids and adults made signs to send along to Standing Rock, and a truck full of firewood and supplies is making it's way there right now. 

This is another great example of groups in Menomonie making a difference and creating better community - thanks to everyone who participated, and particularly to Casey Green for heading up the event at The Acoustic.
