The Prairie Home Swimming Pool is bringing back Speedy Petey Mouse Races! This unique fundraiser returns on Saturday, March 6 at the Jamestown Community Building. $10 not only covers admission, but also includes a drink, a slice of pizza, a raffle ticket, and an action packed evening of fun! Doors will open at 6 pm with races from 7-10 pm. Be sure to check the Prairie Home Pool Facebook page for all the latest information.

The Prairie Home FACS room has been in need of new ranges. FACS teacher Vicki Nave turned to DonorsChoose.org, a website where teachers can post classroom project requests, and donors from all over choose the ones they want to support. Each project is fully vetted by DonorsChoose before it is approved and posted. Nave titled the project “We Want to Cook! Help me give my students new ovens to cook with in FACS class.” The project has been fully funded and the Prairie Home FACS room will soon have two brand new stainless steel Amana ranges!

The Mustard Seed Food Pantry has their monthly distribution on Thursday, February 18 from 4-6 pm at Prairie Home United Methodist Church, 540 Highway Drive. Sign in will be under the awning at the back of the church. Masks are requested and social distancing will be observed. To receive food at no charge, please bring a photo ID, proof of address (such as a utility bill), and Social Security cards for each member of the household. The Mustard Seed is open to residents of Cooper and surrounding counties.
