Cottonwood will have an electronic reader board to display information and event information in the near future!  Prairie Mountain Nutrition, who provides the meals to senior citizens every Tuesday, presented the Cottonwood Lions Club a check for $5,000.00 to assist with the cost of the new LED reader board they purchased to serve the community.  The reader board will be operational soon and will promote services and events taking place in the local area. Prairie Mountain Nutrition used left over grant money to fund this project. The Lions Club is accepting donations to assist in paying for the board, installation costs, and supplies.  Anyone wishing to contribute to this project can mail the funds to Cottonwood Lions Club; PO Box 46; Cottonwood, ID  83522. Pictured from left are: Brandy McElroy, Chris Remacle, Tiffany Forsmann, Carol Altman and Mary Funke representing Prairie Mountain Nutrition and Jim Remacle, Jack Uptmor, Rick Johnson and Jimmie Steinke, representing the Cottonwood Lions Club.  Click on the photo for a larger view.

  Mary Schwartz designed and Evan Schwartz created and cut the design for their Uncle Pete Wimer's business truck using the Prairie High School printing machine.  The tech classes have designed numerous stickers, decals, metal signs and other items for area businesses.  This has provided students at Prairie High School to work on various projects and gain useful skills for their future.  We are very impressed with what this new printer has provided for our students. Pictured L to R:  Caleb McWilliams, Pete Wimer, Mary Schwartz, and Evan Schwartz.
