Congratulations to our 2013 Special Fester, Conner Ellis!

Conner is introduced at the Special Fester Ball held Sunday, September 22 at All-Star Banquet Hall. Conner is accompanied by his mother, Dana Paul and step-father Jodi Paul.

Nine-year-old Conner and his family live on Brice Prairie and he is in the third grade at Sand Lake Elementary School in Holmen.

His father and step-mother are Kevin and Kaia Ellis of Minneapolis.

Conner was diagnosed with autism at age 6 and is considered in the middle of the spectrum. He sturggles at times with social skills and sensory issues.

Conner gives back to the community with his can crushing business and donates a portion of his proceeds to Chileda Institute in La Crosse.

He is an avid Packer and Badger fan and enjoys studying the weather and riding his dirt bike and new off-road motor bike.

Conner meets the Royal Family for the first time

Conner enjoys his first "Prost!"
