The Brookings Rotary Club is sponsoring a new community health education project for 2019 with the Brookings Hospital. The purpose of this project is to provide a copy of the book: The Brain Game: Fun Ways to Help Your Baby's Mind Grow to the parents of each baby born in the Brookings Hospital throughout 2019. The Brain Game was developed by pediatricians, neonatologists and child development specialists as a "how to" guide for parents raising children from birth to three years of age. This booklet was developed as a health education project of the La Crosse Rotary Club of Wisconsin. The idea for implementing this project came from Marcia and Larry Janssen’s visit to the Lacrosse Rotary Friendship Booth at the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. The Brain Game project was featured, and it was explained how other Rotary Clubs could adopt and implement this project with their local hospital. With encouragement received from  Past President, Reva Johnson, and several other members, the Janssens wrote and received a District 5610 Grant proposal to help fund this Brookings Rotary Club project in partnership with the Brookings Hospital." The first 120 out of 400 Brain Game booklets have been delivered.
