Cowgirls don't cry

The sale of the lamb began after a prayer.  "We prayed that this sale would be successful because Ms. Trump is such a key component to our chapter. She's special to us and we would like to do something little, even though she's done so much for our chapter," said Lacey Desserault.
Two Prosser FFA members, Tye Taylor and Lacey Desserault, brought an extra lamb to the Yakima Valley Fair to use the money from its sale to help with the medical expenses of Denine Trump, their FFA advisor, who is being treated for breast cancer.
Glenda Schmidt is Grand Marshall for States Day 2014

"I just can't believe it because I have been driving the Grand Marshalls in the parades in Prosser for about 12 years. It isn't me they want it is the car," says Glenda Schmidt.  "I am not an original Prosserite, so I am surprised they want me."
Schmidt has been in Prosser since 1978.  She came to Prosser because she worked at the County Courthouse as an appraiser.  Originally from West Richland she was born in Hanford at Kadlec which, at the time, was a Kwansit hut. "Everything was portable," said Schmidt.    She was a Richland High Bomber. 
Fallen Soldiers Banner Project

By Victoria Walker
Shelly Best decided she would be the one to carry her husband's banner for the States Day Parade.  The banners represent the fallen heroes from the recent Iraq and Afghanistan wars from Washington State.
"I had heard about the banners from a gal who went to a Wenatchee parade and said how cool it would be to get the banners here in Prosser," said Best.
