Catching Up; Lions, PLTMS, and Winning WheelsJanuary 02, 2018
A few items that got lost in the holiday bustle.
The Prophetstown Lions Club completed their annual tradition of delivering Poinsettias for Christmas to individuals to brighten their holidays. Jim Casson and his wife Connie are in charge of the program.
Winning Wheels held a fundraiser prior to Christmas by offering to wrap gifts. The project is one of several, which the facility has initiated over the past year to become more involved with the community and raise funds for a vector gate and safety system. The system would be used as part of a rehabilitation program for residents. The facility will continue their monthly meal programs as well, which will include homemade Chicken and Noodles to be served on January 24.
PLTMS Community Project
Prior to the Christmas break the PLT Middle School finished their Community Sharing Project. Each class was challenged to donate change to benefit the local food pantry and the Prophetstown Main Street Organization. The winning class received a popcorn party courtesy of Thicksten's Popcorn.
Principal Steve Kastorff said the program was designed to," promote the importance of helping out in our communities and giving to those in need during the holiday season." The students and staff donated $153.00 to the Food Pantry and $50.15 to the Prophetstown Main Street Program.
