It was “Hawg Heaven” on Main Street as motorcycles lined the street in front of the Royale Room during their annual Biker Bash. At 12:30 when this photo was taken nearly 25 motorcycles were already parked with more arriving all the time. 

Prairie Middle School would like to again thank the Booster Club for their donation of $500 to our sign.  Also, to the parents, grandparents and community members who supported our fund raising efforts, thank you.  The sign is a great addition to our school.

Bob and Donna Ross hosted a Ross Family Reunion the weekend of July 14, 15, and 16.  Approximately 250 people gathered for a fun time, coming from as far as Virginia, Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington, Northern and Southern Idaho, and all points in between.They ranged in age from as young as two weeks to 80+.  Good food, visiting, baseball, horseshoes, games, auction, karaoke, and dancing were part of the weekend’s entertainment. Many campers, motor homes, tents, and vehicles lined the driveway and pasture (photo above).  Some thought we had opened an RV Park.  A fella rode in on a Harley, and we all thought he’d come to the wrong party (the Biker Bash was in town), but, no, he actually belonged to us. It was great to get together with our family and friends, to count our blessings, and to thank God.

All three schools got a lot of paint this summer, but the counseling office at the Prairie Middle School got some special attention.  Mrs. Deiss, who was born in Holland, wanted a European theme in the office and asked Ariel Whitley to design and then paint a mural on one of the walls.  This beautiful picture is the result of her talent and effort.
