The Crivitz Recreation
Association is a gathering of business interests dedicated to
promoting the area and the resources it offers, as well as representing
and promoting the interests of it's membership and those that
vacation and recreate here. Our history goes back some 70 years.
We have a display at the
Milwaukee Sports Show and other shows, stock and maintain the
Tourist Information Booth in downtown Crivitz, maintain billboards
on US Highway 141, put up those white arrows that direct you
to various destinations, and conduct a variety of other promotions.
Current projects include another information station on the triangle
in Crivitz at 141 and A, and our own regional sports show coming
In addition to promoting
ourselves, we also promote the many fun things there are to do
in the area. Many of our members are also members of the local
snowmobile and ski clubs, or are involved in whitewater rafting,
fishing, hunting and other recreation related activities. We
are also leaders in the efforts to preserve the WPS lands around
Caldron Falls and High Falls Flowages, bringing together interested
parties and supporting the effort to preserve this magnificent
land for future generations. Our members include people involved
in many aspects of recreation with similar goals.
- Literature distribution
at the information hut in downtown Crivitz, the various sports
shows, and other events that we attend. We get a lot of brochures
and informational material into interested people's hands.
- A unified voice for recreation
oriented business in the region. This helps in Madison and beyond
when important issues affecting recreation or business arise.
It is impressive to have the clear majority of a region's business
leaders united in a single voice.
- Group and co-operative
advertising in many magazines, maps, and other media cuts costs
and exponentially increases exposure.
- Access to various tourism
and related grants, programs and other benefits afforded a non-profit
- The various other benefits
that come from a group buying organization. For example, a group
health policy has been discussed recently.
