Holthaus named Father of the Year
Prairie High Schoolís annual Daddy Date Night was held on Sunday, November 11th. This year the girls chose to have a formal event. The cafeteria was transformed into an elegant dining room cloaked in black tablecloths, red roses and candelabras. The evening began with pictures; some families were able to have generation pictures taken which brought a special touch to the evening. Before dinner President Alli Holthaus welcomed everyone and Officer Gina Holthaus read a touching a blessing about fathers. The candlelight dinner consisted of sirloin bite size steak, baked potato, Caesar salad, glazed carrots and a roll. The dessert was a mocha trifle. After dinner the winning essay was read by Officer Tiffany Schaeffer. The Father of the Year was awarded to Roger Holthaus.
To conclude the festivities and in honor of Veteranís Day, Mrs. Sandy Riggers presented her Faith, Family and Freedom program. Her program which is written and sung by her, touches on her faith, her family and her message of freedom that we owe to those who have served in the armed forces. Some of the highlights of her program are a sing-along to a few standards patriotic songs, a song dedicated to her fast driving aunt, a song she wrote for her parentís 50th anniversary and a salute to each branch of the military. She concluded her program with a touching song which she recorded on cdís and handed out to the veterans in the audience. Prairie League would like to thank Sandy for sharing her special singing/song writing talent with us on our special night with our fathers and grandfathers. Thank you to Cara Duman and Colleen Sonnen, for being our Prairie League Advisors, Greg Sonnen and Alica Holthaus for helping cook our dinner, Kyle Daly, Joe Schumacher, Kyle Holthaus, Conner Rieman, Derek Schaeffer and Nick Johnson for being our servers for the dinner. To our fathers, thank you for being a friend, a guide and a positive influence in our lives. We admire, respect and honor all that you do for others and for your family.
