Prairie High School Key Club met on 12-16-16 and made 33 fleece blankets to donate to the Catherine McAuley Center for their Transitional Housing Unit. This makes a total of 118 blankets that Key Club has donated in the past four years! This is a favorite project of our Key Club members and we were told this morning that the blankets will all be distributed within a week!
Kristin Ossenkop, Volunteer Coordinator for the Catherine McAuley Center, was our speaker at this meeting and explained the purpose and the impact the Catherine McAuley Center has in our community. The labor to make the blankets was provided by Key Club members and the fleece was donated by CCS Staff members, Key Club Members and two very generous community friends, Judy Trimpe and Molly Smith. Thanks to all who donated to this project! You help Key Club students do great things!
It is good to be a Prairie Hawk!

Christina Djerf, Koleene Herlocker, Janet Blackledge, and Joe Schmall receive their Zeller awards in appreciation for their extraordinary support for the Kiwanis International's campaign to Eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.
Checking people’s identification to qualify for purchase of alcoholic beverages at Kernels games is a project we do each August, and this year, part of September. The ball club pays Kiwanis, and the project is our second most profitable fundraiser each year. We put a wristband on qualified folks to speed up things at the concession stands.
