Cottonwood Gun Club won the 10-Week Shoot for at least the third time in their history and the first time since 1998. Shown is a photo from their Facebook page taken during the 2018 10-Week Shoot. See article above left.  Click on the photo for a larger view.

Shown is one of  the care packages made with the donations raised at Walk With Kate. The care packages each contain crayons & coloring book, puzzle, a lap blanket, a children's book about diabetes, stuff animal, carbohydrate counting book, log book & pen, glucose tablets, water bottle, and medical alert bracelets. The lap blankets were made by the sewing class at Prairie Jr/Sr High School and the stuffed animals have patches on it that children can learn how to give shots. I will be dispersing them to hospitals in the surrounding area so they can hand them out to children who have been newly diagnosed with diabetes. I have already donated some to St. Mary’s Hospital and Providence Health & Service. Again I would like to thank all the sponsors and donors who made this project possible.
