Cottonwood News: Boosters support Prairie schools for 30 years

This year is the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Mary appearing to three children at Fatima, Portugal. A group of people from the parish would like to commemorate this event by having a rosary procession in the streets in Cottonwood. It will take place at noon Saturday, Oct. 14, and will last about an hour. We will pray the rosary in St. Mary’s Church for those who do not want to walk, while the rest of the people will be praying the rosary while walking around the streets.

Benefit for Gentry set for Saturday

A “Tacos and Taters” benefit auction for Nathan Gentry will be held on Saturday, Sept. 16, beginning at 4 p.m., at the Cottonwood Community Center.

Fortunately, it proved to be benign. Gentry’s employer, Bud’s PowerSports, has allowed him to take needed time off for recovery and to work when he can. At this time, he can work only a few hours a day. He has insurance; however, it had a $10,000 deductible and doesn’t pay all the cost of medical expenses.
