Prairie Booster Club’s Boosters of the Year for 2020-2021 are Annie Martin and Allason Hoffman.  These great ladies have volunteered for multiple Booster Club events from shifts in the Burger Barn to helping with the Poker run.  Their willingness to help has been greatly appreciated.  It takes many volunteers to keep the Booster Club going and these ladies have stepped up to the plate with a smile on their face!!  Please thank them when you see their friendly faces in the Post Office!

Gary Riener and his staff have been great to work with.  He has gone out of his way to make sure all our supplies and food items for different events are ready to go when needed and chases down the things that are not on his shelves.   His enthusiasm for the Prairie teams and his encouragement is greatly appreciated.  Thank you Gary for all you do for the kids and the community.
