Our Christmas baskets were a little different this year. Again, with the help of the community and the Mill Creek Lions, and Lion Stephanie Marron chairing our project, we delivered to 60 families and filled the food pantries at the United Methodist Church, and also Lamb's Chapel. The New Prairie school system again helped gather mass quantities of food, and was packaged in boxes for delivery. Thanks to all who helped!
The Rolling Prairie Lions ordered several hundred dictionaries for the 3rd graders in Prairie View Elementary and for Rolling Prairie Elementary Schools. Lion David Jandrisovits headed this project with Lion Stephanie Marron as the co-chairman. We received several hundred letters from the 3rd grade students expressing their gratitude. There is nothing better than putting a smile on children's faces!

The children seemed to have a great time. It was pleasant to see this amount of people attend our Easter Egg Hunt. In the past few years, because of weather, we had from 12-30 kids attend. We were prepared for 100..........160 ..wow. We were floored!
