Post Prom party being planned @ Kimball Ag Instructor/FFA Advisor Tracy Nelson (at left) is showing Andrew Massmann (right) some of the finer points in judging dairy cows. The FFA dairy judging team visited Tracy's family dairy farm to practice for the upcoming dairy judging contest to be held at South Dakota State University. Submitted by: Athena Capes, Kimball FFA Reporter. The post prom committee has been busy planning a post prom party for the KAHS students and their dates. The post prom partywill take place right after the dance. Many students leave the dance, and end up at parties where drink- ing alcohol is involved. Many of these students end up getting behind the wheel after consum- ing alcohol. We are trying to create a fun-filled and safe environment for our children. The students will not be able to leave the event; and the parents and others in our com- munity will have peace of mind knowing our children are safe. We are also seeking donations of money, gift cards or prizes for the event, if you, your family and or business can help contribute to the post prom party, you may mail or drop them off at: Kimball Community Education, Post Prom Party, PO Box 368, Kimball, MN 55353. You may also contact Karla Ehlinger at (320) 250-5357, if you would like for us to pick up an item. Thanks for all your support.
