Prairie Village received a $5,000 donation from East River Electric Cooperative in December. East River participated in CoBank’s Sharing Success Program which is a matching grant program. East River donated $2,500 and CoBank matched that amount. Jake Good, Vice President of CoBank, said, “The Sharing Success Program is a great way for us to positively impact the communities of our customers. We are proud to partner with East River on this donation.”
Prairie Village is a recreated historic village featuring artifact filled buildings from the early part of the 20th century. They conduct numerous events throughout their season, including a pageant, a concert series, a railroad celebration and their giant Steam Threshing Jamboree in late August. Faron Wahl, manager of Prairie Village, expressed appreciation for the generous donation. “We are humbled and deeply grateful to East River and CoBank for their generosity and support of our mission through this kind and unexpected gift,” said Faron. The funds will be utilized thoughtfully to assist operations-related projects affected by weather challenges and growth needs.
