Message from Brenda Gould at Prairie Bus:

I would like to let you all know that I will be transferring out of Lester Prairie.  My last day at Prairie Bus will be Friday, Feb. 14.  I would like to leave you with a huge compliment on your town, your people and your youth.  I have come to love this community and it’s people.  You have something very unique in the way you all stick together.  I love the way you are raising your next generation.  These kids are wonderful!  They are kind and caring and extremely well behaved.  I have talked to many of you about driving bus and heard many comment on fear of a bus load of kids…NOT an issue in Lester!  Thank you for accepting me the last 22 years into your lovely community and trusting me with your children.  I will very much miss it.  Keep up the great job watching out for each other and continue raising your youth just as you have.  I would not want to see any changes (except some more local bus drivers!).  I have hopes that our paths will cross again in life!  God bless you all! – Brenda
