Prosser Rotary
On Jan. 14, Dena Lodahl, Director for the Prosser Boys & Girls Club, and Zebbie Castilleja, 2016 Prosser Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year, spoke to members of the Prosser Rotary Club.
Lodahl began by relating the club's mission, which is "To empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens." Lodahl said the club is really focused on expanding their teen services, which are aimed towards youths from middle school through high school. 
The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Spokane benefits from the collection of metal tabs found on everything from pop and beer cans to cans of dog food and soup. The tabs are brought to RMH where they are recycled. The money raised from the tabs goes to help pay for utilities and other needs. There are two locations to drop off your tabs in Prosser the First Presbyterian Church and the Prosser Record- Bulletin. If you need someone to pick up your tabs please call Bonnie at (509) 832-0682.

Classic British Farce to Kick Off Valley Theater Co. 2016 offerings

Valley Theater Company's first show of the New Year will open next month and include a special matinee performance on Valentine's Day.
"See How They Run," by Philip King, is a classic British farce which will open at the Princess Theatre in Prosser Feb. 12. Performances will continue Feb. 13, 14, 19 and 20.
The Princess Theatre is a very busy place this month! And, much of the business is preparations for Valley Theater Company's final two plays of its 2015-16 season.
Over the weekend, a team of volunteers painted the English vicarage that is the backdrop for the upcoming comedy "See How They Run." VTC will open this British farce on Feb. 12 for five performances, including a Valentine's Day matinee with an optional luncheon.
Inside Giving

By Brett Dillahunt
Working as we sometimes do with the vulnerable and abused has been a steep learning curve for me. I am not trained as a social worker, and have relied heavily on the advice of other Mustang professionals to help me meet their needs. (Italics) Speak in soft tones. Smile. Let them volunteer information. Let them state their needs. Do not make assumptions or judgements. Act in every way possible the opposite of their abusers. This advice has been priceless.
