Four generations of a River Falls family with ties to the local Moose organization recently toured a Moose-supported community for children in Illinois. The four-generational family members are: front, five-year-old Riley DuBois, who attends the River Falls Public Montessori School; back, from left: Riley's mother Crystal DuBois; Crystal's grandmother, Natalie Kusilek; and Natalie's daughter, Laurie Hansen. Hansen is a professional photographer in River Falls who operates Picture Perfect Studios.

Moose members share purpose, camaraderie


If you have a household with kids, Laurie Hansen said joining the Moose organization in River Falls is a family-friendly gesture.

"We have things to do that are suitable for families -- picnics, games, dinners, Sunday brunches, Easter Egg hunts, Halloween costume parties, I do Santa pictures in December -- it's really like a fraternity, like belonging to a big family with lots of close connections in a very relaxed atmosphere," said Hansen.
