On Sept. 5th some of the ladies of the Prairie Retirement Condominium Residents and their Coffee Friends were treated to a day out from several local Cottonwood businesses. The Hangout gave free ice cream cones for them to enjoy on their drive to the river. The return trip they sipped on a sweet bottle of wine donated by Rieners Grocery, Gary also sent a bottle of champagne for them as well. As they got back into town they stopped at The Habit where they enjoyed their drink of choice "on the house". Before stepping back into the limo they were given beautiful long stem roses donated by Cottonwood Foods. Transportation was donated by Lockett Limousine. Lockett Limousine says they would gladly do it again if the same anonymous benefactor does the coordinating, he did an amazing thing. Thank  you for thinking up this grand idea and making it happen. The ladies sure appreciated it. Pictured from left are Theresa Sonnen, Claudia Gehring, Anna Gehring, Barbara Rehder, Lorraine Nuxoll, Vera Holthaus and Lockett’s Limousine chauffeur Clayton Lockett.

The final stop for the ladies on their day on the town was at The Habit where they each got a drink of their choice. Photo by Michael Rehder. Click on the photo for a larger view.
