COTTONWOOD — Fun, food, hugs and smiles were enjoyed by all who attended the “original” Prairie High School class reunions of nine years (1962-1971) which was held on July 11 at the Cottonwood City Park. Approximately 90 people enjoyed a perfect day of weather, great food and a day of catching up on years gone by, and their effort to attend was greatly appreciated. (See photos below)

A note to Camas Prairie Young Adults: Hope you had a great 4th of July! Can’t believe summer is already flying by! We just wanted to send out a notice for all those young adults who are interested in two more events before summer comes to an end. We are hoping to do a canoe trip in McCall late July and a hiking/fishing trip up in the Gospels sometime in August. If you are interested in any of these events, contact with name and contact information (e-mail, phone, etc.) or visit us on Facebook at Camas Prairie Adults. If we have your contact information, we can send out info about these events and future events.

Glenn Poxleitner is asking for any high/junior high school students who are interested in cross-country running to contact him. This is not a funded sport by the Prairie schools. Mr. Dave Young and Mrs. Jenny Arnzen have expressed interest and enthusiasm in assisting with this new adventure. “I guarantee this to be a new and rewarding challenge, and I also guarantee that we will have some fun and different practices. So come out and give cross-country a try,” said Glenn.

Harvest in the Cottonwood area is off to a good start. This is way early for a lot of farmers, but they are happy to be in the field. I hope everyone is careful so there are no field fires.

Ron Schnider was gifted a Quilt of Valor last Wednesday, July 8. The Quilt of Valor group’s goal is to make sure every local veteran eventually gets a quilt. You can contact Shirley Baerlocher for information or to make a donation.
