Make sure you mark your summer calendars for Lester Prairie Days on July 15 and 16th! There will be lots of fun activities, great food, and a parade and fireworks on Saturday night. In order to make sure Prairie Days is successful, lots of volunteers are needed! This is a great way for students to volunteer in the community. Help is needed to set-up on Thursday evening, help with games and activities on Friday and Saturday, and help take down on Sunday. You can check out the volunteer sign-up list at this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050c4fa9ab2fa7f49-prairie1 or go to the Prairie Days website: https://lpprairiedays.weebly.com/ The website will be updated with the whole schedule of events, once finalized. We hope to see you at Prairie Days this summer!
