COTTONWOOD Labor Day weekend means the end of summer. I know the kids are happy to be back in school! Well, at least some of them are. It is always fun to use all the new stuff you get for school.
We can see our blue skies again! Yea! And we can see the stars at night. The fires must be getting under control.
I received a note from Shayla Van Houten who is commander at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Cottonwood. She would like to invite everyone to Awana night on Sept. 12 at 6:30 p.m.
Congratulations to Caleb McWilliams, Spencer Schumacher and Carson Schmidt who have chosen construction of new bleachers at the football field/track at Prairie for their senior project. They are doing a great job. This is quite an undertaking for three young men.

The Prairie Elementary Parent Association has taken on a project to help brighten up the school and help kids have a more positive attitude. They made posters to hang on the walls at school. The hope is that these sayings will help remind the kids to be kind to each other and to help others that may be feeling down or lonely. Serena Lockett from the Bent Hinge donated her time and talent to bring this project together. Some of the sayings are “Be the reason someone smiles; Do the right thing even when no one is watching; In a world where you can be anything, be kind; Your attitude determines your direction; If you think someone could use a friend, be one.” Isn’t this a great idea?
Prairie Art Association will be painting green pottery bowls at their next meeting on Sept. 10, at 9:30 a.m., at Craigmont City Hall. Instructions and supplies are included, no prior experience necessary. The bowls are for a fund-raiser to counteract domestic violence, put on by the YWCA in Lewiston. Lots of other groups are also helping with this project. There is no charge for the class, only a $2 fee to help pay for room rent. Bring a sack lunch.
The Monastery of St. Gertrude is announcing one of the highlights of the Spirituality and the Arts program. It is the annual Gonzaga University Choir performance in September.

Join us for the upcoming free concert on Sept. 9, at 1:30 p.m. The choir will also provide music for 10:30 a.m. Mass that day.
