December 11th, the old Peter’s Prairie Schoolhouse was filled to the brim with a crowd of about 90 friends and neighbors who came to visit a while and enjoy a wonderful meal. Many really good people helped make the night a success.
Everyone enjoyed some tasty barbecue thanks to Beverly Cartwright, Dan Hall, Don Jacques, Steve & Merlina Gamel, Nickie & Ann Nobles, Sam & Gai Ann Harper, Steve & Sheri Jordan, and Vernon & Lynda Harris. We are extremely fortunate to have ladies who are excellent cooks and provided the many delicious complementary dishes and desserts.
We are blessed to be a community of charitable first-rate citizens. The Mason Food Bank was very thankful for the many non-perishable food items that our wonderful folks brought to aid others.
It was delightful to have "Mr. & Mrs. Santa Clause" attend incognito as Dewey & Mary Eckert. Children and adults alike enjoyed Santa’s presence and the singing of Christmas songs which seemed to spark the Christmas spirit even more.
It is always pleasing to have several Mason County Rural Schools alumni in attendance. This year Lorene Haines Dunlap, Doris Kasper Grote, Frances Kruse Bode, Patsy Hofmann Brandenberger and Lorene Kasper Metz of the Peter’s Prairie School—Gene Kidd of the Katemcy Friendship School---Sara Eckert Banta and H. Charles Eckert of the Ranch Branch School—-Jane Hofmann Hoerster of the Grit School—&—Silas Brandenberger of the Ten Mile School were present. Solemnly this year, the presence of two precious ladies were missed —-Wanda Hurley Jacques of the Katemcy Friendship School and Florene Eckert Hofmann of the Peter’s Prairie School.
The PPSCA Board of Directors hope everyone enjoyed a blessed Christmas and is hoping the New Year is the best of all years past and the worst of all years to come.
