Staff from Prairie Elementary, Middle and High Schools joined another 37 schools at LCSC to scratch tickets for Cash for Schools.  Each group was given 300 lottery tickets and 5 minutes to scratch as many as possible.  Our lunch lady Bertie Forsmann from Prairie High School scratched a $500.00 ticket.    (I guess she is the lunch lady with the loot)  Prairie Middle School moved from the 1st round to the 2nd round and was given another 300 tickets to scratch.  They came in 2nd place when it was all said and done and received another 150 tickets – totaling 750.   With the combined effort from all of the “scratchers”, our student body funds will receive $1,274.00. Participants:  Greg Deiss, Lydia Deiss, Bertie Forsmann, Denise Poxleitner, Jake Forsmann, Marlene Forsmann, Renee’ Eckert, Rene’ Forsmann and Denise Uhlenkott.

The highway district crews have been hauling dirt to the baseball and softball fields.  They were fed lunch on Wednesday at the middle school and Rene’ Forsmann took a picture of the crew.  The schools always want to thank those folks who help on their projects.  Shown are Cleo Duman-Cottonwood, Russel Poxleitner-Keuterville, Gabe Riener and Paul Schmidt-Ferdinand, Clint Riener-Greencreek, Lou Hollingsworth-Keuterville and Greg Johnson-Fenn.
