Each year the WCCOL works with area organizations and businesses to raise awareness of our mission. Here are some highlights from recent projects. 



Thanks, Danielle!

The Winneshiek County Celebration of Life board is very grateful to Danielle Bakewell for her amazing nine years of service on the WCCOL board. Danielle was so dedicated. She gave back to our community with a special devotion to our mission. All of us on the WCCOL board are grateful for her fun, special friendship..

Congratulations to Margaret (Mugs) Walter for her new position as President of the Board of Trustees.

Mags Yahr

Farewell, Mags

We celebrated the life of a woman the WCCOL held dear: Mags Yaar. We will miss her influence on our board of trustees but mostly we will miss her friendship.

The WCCOL has been made up of a group of people who continually challenge and inspire each other, and Mags was a beautiful thread in that tapestry.

We are grateful to have experienced life with her and her contributions will continue to influence us as we move forward.
