With all of the changes we are experiencing day-by-day and even hour-by-hour due to the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, COW97 has partnered with 1st Community Credit Union in Sparta, West Salem & Tomah to do our very best to keep you updated on the current situation.

Our aim is to include organizational information, cancellations, postponements and details on things that still are, or may be happening, such as food donation info, blood drives, etc.

If you have details on such an event, please e-mail rachel@cow97.com with complete details, or call our office line @ (608) 269-3100, Monday thru Friday between 8am & 4:30pm.

At 1st Community Credit Union, Community is their middle name -- and COW97 is grateful that they've stepped forward to help us bring you this information.
