Students from Coast Rica visit Grantsburg Rotary
Again this year a group of students from Costa Rica are spending a week in Grantsburg attending classes at Grantsburg High School and partaking in something new for them: winter activities. They are enjoying snowmobiling, ice fishing, skating, and sliding along with just being outside enjoying the snow and cold. They visited the Grantsburg Rotary Club at the January 21 meeting.
