This edition features the 2014 Firehouse Sale wrap-up, a send-off for Fire Chief Doug Hutchison and family, a close up look at Amery’s beautiful spring canola crop, and much more!
The 15th High Prairie Firehouse Sale is down to its final day — tomorrow, May 18.
Friday and Saturday saw a steady parade of shoppers. A lot of stuff went to good homes, and Myrin’s brats flew off the grill at an amazing rate! Tomorrow the sale continues, but now everything is priced to move. Everything will be 1/2 price or $5 a bag (in some cases even $1 a bag), so come and pick up some treasures at a price that can’t be beat!
Don’t miss the bargains, treasures, food and fun at the 15th Annual High Prairie Firehouse Sale!
This big community fundraiser has something for everyone: huge rummage sale, plant sale, silent auction, food booth (with Myrin’s famous brats), quilt raffle, live music, and games for the kids.

If you are a return visitor to this website (and we hope you are) you may have noticed a few changes. First, we have changed the navigation to make it a little easier to follow. There is still some content that we need to move over but you’ll find the latest High Prairian and the community calendar available now.
Next, we’ve made it easier for you to participate in discussions in the Community Blog. In fact, we encourage you to use this area to start discussion topics of interest to the community. We just ask that you keep it civil (and, of course, PG-rated).
Finally, you’ll note that you no longer need to register or log in to view certain content (yay!) We’ve added some security measures so you don’t have to. In fact, if you would like to submit comments or initiate a blog topic, your post won’t appear right away. All submitted content is held for review/approval by the Webmistress or original blog author. Generally, there will only be a delay of a few hours.
So now you have a reason to return and, hopefully, contribute.
