About the Agnew house
While traveling through Cottonwood on Oct. 16, I learned that our old family home had burned just the day before. It brough back many memories and a bit of sadness, for that was the home that I was born in and grew up in. Perhaps it is just as well that it is gone, as it looked as if it was in pretty bad shape. . . .

Her distinguished academic achievements have earned her a place in National Honor Society at Prairie High School. She is also a very active member of Prairie High school’s drug free organization.

She exhibits a willingness to help with a cheery smile and positive attitude. Cot Her leadership skills are evident in her many volunteer activities and as captain of the dance team.

Prairie Imperial Bowl at Craigmont was the scene of a few scary people and good lookers on Tuesday of last week. The group pictured here were celebrating just another day of bowling but decided to add a few laughs and shaking of heads as they entered the doors. Most of them went to lunch in Cottonwood so perhaps you laughed along with them. Out Tuesday Morning Glories want to liven up our lives and let you enjoy our fun with us. If anyone wants to join us a sub, please let Gladys Sonnen know. 

The spaghetti feed fundraiser for the Center for Discovery was a great success.
